The main floor plays a significant role in setting the impression for the rest of your home. It’s also usually the most frequented space in a household as well as the area first viewed by visitors.
Although deciding to complete a main floor renovation is an exciting time, it can also be a time filled with decision-making. Here are three tips to follow to help your main floor renovation go as smoothly as possible!
1. Consider the Floor Plan
Begin by considering your main floor as it is just now. What do you currently like about it? What doesn’t work for your lifestyle – and why? What would make your main floor more functional for hosting and entertaining guests?
Next, think about some main floor plans that you admire. From friends’ and families’ homes to Pinterest boards, drawing on the inspiration of others can add a lot to your own main floor renovation plans.
If you’re working with a qualified contractor, their design team will have numerous suggestions on how to improve your main floor living space.
Spending some time deciding how you will customize your main floor is important. Completing this renovation project is a rare opportunity to make your home’s most frequently used living space exactly what you want. Making the right decisions now will provide years of enjoyment for you and your family!
2. Choose Unique Features
This renovation is the perfect time to create a main floor that suits you and your family’s individual needs. Choosing some unique features will enable that to happen!
Have a collection of books that you’ve always wanted prominently displayed? Consider a wall of built-in bookshelves.
Want a conversation piece that also adds ambience? A two-sided fireplace may be your solution!
Always wanted a statement staircase? Have a staircase installed that’s impressive from the moment you step inside your front door.
3. Outsource when Needed
There are so many options when it comes to completing a main floor renovation. Try not to get overwhelmed by all the decisions!
Although you may initially think that you can handle the renovations yourself, completing a main floor renovation is extensive. In many cases, it’s easier, quicker and less worrisome to outsource the work to an experienced contractor.
When that’s the case, do your research to choose a contractor who is knowledgeable on main floor renovations. Ask to see a portfolio of their work and testimonials from recent customers.
