Here at McBride Remodeling, we’re in the process of providing this Charlevoix family with the space and style they need to live their best life. While the project continues to progress, we’re excited to highlight the specific aspects of this project that other homeowners should consider when planning out their own remodel or addition. A little inspiration can go a long way to giving you the new home you’ll love for years to come.
Let’s start with a little background on this Charlevoix addition project. Feeling like the existing space didn’t meet their needs, they wanted to take the opportunity while remodeling to expand and add more space to accommodate their family and guests. We’re providing a complete remodel of the home’s first floor, which includes the kitchen, bedrooms, bathrooms and laundry room.
To give the family the added space they need, we’re building a new second floor which will include three new bedrooms, an exercise room, family room, wet bar and laundry room. We’re also adding a second floor screened-in porch for enjoying their picturesque views of the lake.
Here are four features of this remodel we believe every client should consider as part of their full home remodel:
Expanded Laundry Room
It’s probably not the first feature you think of when considering a home remodel. However, a new, more functional laundry room can make this daily chore more efficient, giving you more free time to enjoy life. Today, homeowners are adding laundry rooms in a space that’s most convenient for them, such as close to closets and bedrooms. Make this space feel welcoming and elevated with built-in cabinetry and countertops that give you a place to store, sort and fold. Finally, a steamer closet will take those wrinkles away without stealing your time.
Added Garage Space
Who couldn’t use a few extra square feet of storage space? It’s always a good idea to add a bit of surplus space for unexpected items you may want to store in the future. Having open space also allows you to better organize and make the room feel clean, open and airy. We go to great lengths to make even garage spaces feel finished and inviting.
Our Charlevoix clients wanted to add an exercise room to allow them to keep up with their workouts without having to make a special trip to the gym. What special space would you want to add if you had the room to do it? From wine cellars to craft workshops, there are ample options and we’re happy to explore them and customize a space that suits your needs.
With a gorgeous view of the water, we knew our clients would want to add in a porch space for enjoying the breathtaking views and entertaining. With the addition of a screened in porch, they’ll be able to further maximize the use of this space. Think breakfast without the bugs and dinner parties with no buzzing pests. It’s the best of both worlds!
We’ll be excited to share more progress from this whole home remodel and addition in the coming months. If you have an idea for how you’d like your Northern Michigan home to look, reach out and we’d be happy to explore your options with you.
