Spring has awakened and bestowed her lovely radiance upon your quaint residence in Los Angeles. Now is the perfect time to get all those pesky tools off the pegboard and get back to work on restoring your precious humble abode to its former glory. But instead of applying minor fixtures that won’t withstand the test of time, why not go all out and give your home a complete makeover instead?
Sure, the cost of a simple repair is nothing compared to a complete home renovation, but home remodeling in Los Angeles is the in-thing this season. Whilst your neighbors happily showcase their brand new refurbished ceilings and polished banisters, you’re left with a faded excuse of a door and spiral cracks webbing through your plaster. Enlisting the aid of a remodeling contractor to give your house an exclusive new look might just be what your home needs.
Where to start?
People generally fancy a makeover for their basement or garage, and you could start there too. Start off by figuring out what exactly you would like to convert your space into – do you want a new playroom for the kids in the garage? Or would you like a nice lounge in the basement with a few pool tables and some cable? Or do you want to convert the attic into a spare bedroom for visitors?
You could concoct a list to exhaust all the various possibilities and ideas that trifle through your mind. This way you can select the most convenient and realistic approach to remodeling certain sections of your home, and ultimately build the dream home you desire. Always turn a negative aspect of your home into something positive. Take the lighting issue in a room for example. Every home across the world is riddled with dark spaces or a particular dark room whereby no light seeps through.
Instead of lamenting over this waste of space, consider your alternatives and charge up your creativity batteries. What could you convert the space into? You could make a dark room into your very own mini home theatre, or you could even put in a built-in lighted aquarium to brighten up the space. Ultimately, it all depends on how you wish to utilize the empty or dark space in your home, and convert it into something perpetually useful.
Think outside the box
Another common alternative when you consider a home remodel would be to go green, this is especially true in Los Angeles. Being eco-friendly not only saves cost and energy, but also reduces the consumption of raw and organic material that would otherwise be very hard to get a hold of. Green building not only lessens the negative impact on your surrounding environment, but also reduces the release of harmful chemicals or toxins into the air. Take asbestos, for example. Once disturbed, the asbestos particles can not only trigger health complications such as asthma and cancer (in the long run) in nearby individuals, but can also dissolve in local streams nearby and form a toxic residue that can destroy the ecology of a functioning ecosystem.
Therefore, instead of investing in such hazardous chemicals or physical materials that are potential ticking time bombs under your roof, why not utilize recycled or reusable materials to remodel your home instead? Not only are these materials cheaper and sturdier, but they can also be converted into another material source once their function has been exhausted completely, which essentially makes them reusable several times over.
Once you have selected a home remodeling plan that follows through the footsteps of your visions and dreams, you would need to make sure that your plans toe the line with your budget. Always have a backup plan if things don’t fall through at the last moment, and try to anticipate any possible hidden or extra costs that might tag along with your refurbishment. You could make a short list outlining the possible cost of each section you intend to remodel – filter in the cost of raw materials, electricity, water, labor and even insurance, should things flop on the wrong side of the fence.
Extensive remodeling will usually mean you need to find a secondary residence to hole up in whilst all the work is being done, so make sure you have somewhere else to stay. Also, don’t forget to consider your budget and any loans you might need to finance after the renovation – don’t get carried away and start building floating sandcastles in mid-air; make sure your feet are firmly planted on the ground and your remodel meets realistic expectations.
Our team of professionals are ready to answer any questions you may have, during our in home estimate we will measure and look at every detail of the project very carefully and come up with a price that will fit your budget and a design that will be both functional and cost efficient.
