Although most people tend to think of remodeling projects as being for the kitchen and bathroom because you know they add value to the house, there are also remodeling projects for the rest of the house which also add value while making the home more enjoyable for you and your family. Custom carpentry throughout the home adds a level of interest which sets the theme so your house can stand out as beautiful and functional.
Built-in Entertainment Centers and Bookshelves
Built-in entertainment centers are a great place to start when customizing your home with fine woodworking remodel projects. The piece will become the focal point of your living room or den as a place to keep your electronics and display interesting collections or hobbies you have. Whether you store books, games, or musical instruments on the shelves or in the cabinetry, they're available when you need them and neatly stored when not in use. Your television is accessible when you want to watch or can be closed behind its own set of doors to be out of sight and out of mind when not in use.
Typically, a contractor puts generic moldings in a house when building it unless it has already been bought and the new owner specifies something more elaborate. A carpenter can always pull out the old molding and replace it with a more distinguished profile made of solid wood instead of plastics or particleboard which can then be either painted or stained according to your preferences. The overall effect is a subtle niceness which extends throughout your house.
Floors and Walls
Hardwood floors are generally considered an upgrade from carpet. They can be left bare for easy cleaning, or covered with changeable rugs to decorate for each season. The bottom portion of walls can be covered with wainscoting to add interest and depth, or the drywall can be replaced with stained boards to add visual interest to a room. A good way to decide on design styles is to look through magazines or online pictures of featured homes and decide what you do and don't like, then discuss your ideas with your contractor.
Adding these unique features discussed above can be the key to enjoying your home and also increasing its value when it comes time to sell. Contact us today by giving us a call at 651-731-5857 or visit us online at www.the-construction-group.com.
