An updated kitchen can serve more than one useful purpose – not only can it help bring people together, but it can also serve as a selling point. In addition, many homeowners spend a lot of time in their kitchen and a renovated space can make it more enjoyable.
Are you considering turning your basement into a finished living space? If so, our basement remodeling experts can help you design the area and turn it into the game room, living room, laundry room, or spare bedroom you’ve always wanted. In addition to having that extra room, there are several other benefits of remodeling your basement:
With a finished basement, you’ll not only add more square footage to your home, you’ll also add overall living space, and both of them can increase your home’s value. If you ever decide to sell your home, you’ll be able to list it as a larger size and at a higher price; plus, a finished basement is a great selling point.
Just like your attic, your basement can be the source of cold drafts and can reduce the overall energy efficiency of your home. By remodeling it and insulating it, you can create a space that maintains a more even temperature and keeps the rest of your home more comfortable.
When you see an empty living room or bedroom, you know what those particular rooms are going to be; there’s not much more you can do with them. However, when you see an empty basement, the possibilities are nearly endless. You have the creativity and freedom to turn a basement into whatever you want it to be.
Having a large extra space for activities, sleeping, games, relaxation, entertaining, and more can simply add more happiness and comfort to your life. You and your family will be able to enjoy your very own getaway whenever you want and use the space however you’d like to.

If you’re interested in a bathroom remodel, you may be thinking about a new bathtub or shower. With several different styles to choose from, knowing which one to pick may be a little overwhelming, so our bathroom remodel experts are here to help narrow them down:
Modular showers are the most popular style of shower and can either be built into one of your bathroom walls or built into a corner. These showers are usually made from acrylic and can come with basic, flat walls or with molded add-ons like seats or shelves.
Showers with low or zero thresholds give you the ability to simply walk into the shower without having to step over something to get in. This look can help your shower flow into the rest of your bathroom layout and is ideal for elderly or disabled individuals.
Built-in showers are created by transforming one corner of your bathroom. Usually, your bathroom walls are all the same material and these square or rectangular showers enclose one or two of those walls. They’re often completed with tall glass and a glass door to make the design look transparent and seamless.
Want to make a statement with your bathtub? Opt for one that stands freely in your bathroom. Freestanding bathtubs usually come in very modern shapes and are installed so that they sit right on your bathroom floor on a flat bottom, with exposed sides.
If you’re looking for a bathtub that feels secluded, an alcove bathtub is a good choice. These tubs are rectangular, with three adjacent walls around them. This makes only one side of the tub is accessible and gives them a recessed look.
Clawfoot tubs were considered a luxury in the late 19th century and are designed with an elegant flare. These tubs are also freestanding, but instead of sitting on a flat bottom, they sit on clawed feet. They’re usually oval in shape and can feature a high back that makes them larger than standard bathtubs.
A drop-in bath tub is exactly what it sounds like – a tub that is dropped into a platform (which is usually rectangular). The platform gives the tub a decorative base and it’s usually installed against a wall or in a corner to make the tub blend into the rest of the bathroom.
Like the idea of a bathtub that can also give you a massage? You may want to consider a whirlpool or air tub. Whirlpools shoot jets of water into the tub to create movement and relaxation while air tubs shoot air bubbles into the tub to energize the water.
Undermount bath tubs are similar to drop-in bathtubs, however, instead of the top lip of the bathtub being exposed, the platform material wraps around and sits flush with the interior of the tub. This feature gives the tub a seamless, stylish look.
If you want both a bathtub and a shower and want to maximize your bathroom space, opt for a tub/shower combination. You’ll have the luxury of a bathtub when you want it and the convenience of a shower when you need it.
