Kitchen Remodel: Blending the Out with the In

 

Indoor/Outdoor Kitchen Space

 

As one of the most aesthetically pleasing and convenient design elements, you may want to include indoor-outdoor living in your kitchen remodel ideas. By utilizing varying patio doors features such as pocketing lift and slide patio doors, extending your kitchen to include an outside area is the best way to accomplish the goal of bringing the outdoors inside. Here are some helpful tips for planning a kitchen that extends outside:

 

§  A great design element to include is extending the boundaries of your kitchen counter. By making it so that your kitchen counter can be utilized both inside and outside, you provide yourself and your guests with ultimate convenience, beautifully blending the “out” with the “in” with a custom pass-through window.

§  It is important that you blend the materials used so that your indoor-outdoor living arrangement looks seamless, by utilizing the same woods and metals in both areas.

§  Most importantly, you should make this extended kitchen area a safe haven of comfort. This means having heat sources available such as overhead gas heaters so that you can always enjoy your new outside-inside living area.

Indoor Outdoor Living: Create a Backyard Getaway

 

Transforming Your Backyard into a Staycation

 

If you dream of having a backyard getaway where you can seek peace and tranquility whenever you please, it is time to start designing your backyard to incorporate indoor-outdoor living. Your backyard getaway can be the perfect place to get away from the outside world or invite friends to enjoy your staycation zone. If bringing the outdoors in is on your priority list in your home remodel ideas, consider these design ideas:

§  The most logical route in outdoor designs is working with low-maintenance materials and equipment that will allow your backyard getaway to withstand varying conditions and situations without a lot of upkeep.

§  It is important that you apply the same design principles that you would for a functional zone in your actual home. This means ensuring everything flows and that the proper materials are used.

§  Try to keep your outdoor designs cohesive with the design of your home’s landscape and architecture. The last thing you want is to complete the job only to realize that your backyard getaway does not blend with or compliment your home.

§  You may also want a heat source for chilly nights. Your backyard getaway will be most effective if you are able to enjoy the space no matter what the weather. A portable gas or an overhead heater can provide your entire relaxing zone with warmth.

§  You may also want to think about entertainment and music. While you may be inclined to push off this part of the design until after the main construction has been completed, many architects can incorporate the designs to include technological enhancements.

Unique Home Decorating Ideas

 

How to Have a Little More Fun with Your Décor

 

If you are one of the many individuals who find decorating your home to be a daunting task, it may be advantageous for you to look at the home décor ideas of others for inspiration. There are so many unique ideas you can use to make your living space more aesthetically pleasing, including:

 

§  A unique way to decorate your home is to play with scale. Despite popular belief, you do not need everything in your house to be neatly arranged and symmetrical. Get playful with the placement and size of your furnishings and accessories.

§  Quirky shelving is a great way to revamp the design elements of your home. Choose interesting shaped mounted pieces and place them at an angle for an edgy feel.

§  Do you have interesting unused items stored your garage? Utilize your favorite pieces such as old stereos and cameras as design elements and mount them on the wall. This will give your home personality and you can feel free to pick and choose which elements you want to be reminded of daily.

§  Get rid of your bland white ceiling and dress it up with a unique color or design. But be careful with darker palettes, as they can possibly overpower the room.

§   As challenging as it may be, you must fight the urge to match everything. Just because the walls of your living room are navy does not mean you need shades of navy blue throughout your entire home.

Spring Home Maintenance Checklist

 

Your Spring Home Checklist

 

With spring just around the corner, it might be time to start thinking about home maintenance so that your space can feel fresh and clean for the start of the new season. Updating and keeping your home in the best shape possible is one good way to enjoy the changing season. Following this Spring checklist to refresh your home can help you complete this task with ease:

§  Welcome the arrival of spring with a warm, clean and bright greeting by washing the interior and exterior of your windows, letting the light shine through.

§  If you are finding that the chill is entering through your doors or windows, even as the warming weather arrives, check to make sure that there are no cracks in the weather stripping.  If yours seems to have gone through a beating, it might be time to upgrade to new energy efficient windows and beautiful Bi-Fold patio doors. These make a wonderful addition to any home, creating a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor spaces. What better way to appreciate the new season?

§  Maybe it is time for a fresh coat of paint or change of color on the walls. Why not check out the new palettes, pick up some paint swatches at your local hardware store and get creative. Your home will reflect its best during the upcoming season.

§  Do you still have your winter wreath and decorations scattered throughout the house? If so, it is time to stow all winter décor and bring out the spring charm. A bouquet of fresh flowers and a bit of spring décor can really waken up the senses.

§  Why not take this time to clean out your “junk” drawer – that one drawer in every house that accumulates the most random yet necessary items. After a while the buildup can be so cluttered it becomes difficult to find what you need.  Take a moment to recycle or toss any
un-useful items.
