If you’re planning a home remodel, you should go into it with an idea of what you want by the end. Whether you have experience and are doing the home remodel yourself or you’re hiring Premier Group Contractors, knowing what you want is important. That’s why we’ve put together some home design hacks you can use. Looking to get the most out of your renovations? Here are some things you should consider.
The double-sided fireplace is a genius innovation that has changed the entire way we think about fireplaces. It used to be that fireplaces were primarily put against walls or, in special cases, in the middle of the room. Combining these two locations to get the most out of fireplaces has given us the best of both worlds.
A double-sided fireplace can be placed in a wall between two rooms. This is most commonly done between a master bedroom and a sprawling master bathroom with a tub. This location makes it easy to relax by the fire no matter the occasion. You can lie in bed, in the middle of winter, and watch movies while the fire keeps the room nice and warm. Or, you can move your party to the bathtub and take a long soak while the flames keep you company. It’s a win-win.
With time, the laundry chute has become somewhat antiquated and unseen in newer houses. However, there’s nothing outlawing us from having one. For many, the washer and dryer fit nicely into a second-floor laundry room, right beside the bedrooms. This makes the need for a laundry shoot dissipate entirely. However, not all homes have second-floor laundry rooms.
If you have your laundry room on the first floor or in the basement, you’re almost definitely tired of carrying laundry down every couple days. While the trip back up is still necessary, imagine cutting out half of the transport labor! Laundry chutes are not difficult to have installed and can easily be added during a home remodel. And, with that, you’ll be throwing your laundry downstairs instantly in no time.
With many a home remodel comes a new and updated kitchen. If you want maximum space and efficiency, you’ll almost definitely end your kitchen update with an island or breakfast bar. Islands help to utilize otherwise unused space and give you more counter space for food prep, cooking, and for casual eating.
If you put your new stovetop at the inner edge of the island, you also have the added bonus of being able to cook for bar occupants. While you can technically cook for bar occupants from anywhere in the kitchen, this is slightly different. Cooking from the island allows you to serve food directly to their plates from the pan. You can also have a chat with them while you’re waiting for their bacon and eggs to cook.
