Why does this Tenant Improvement Cost So Much?

    I'm often asked questions like this in the early phases of a tenant improvement. The client has many questions during early phases of an office relocation, and they normally would prefer to pin down the cost question quickly, so they can make a decision whether to move forward.

Green Remodeling Tips

One trend that is achieving prominence these days is to not only remodel your home, but to do it in such a way that it is sustainable.  So here are some green remodeling tips.

First off, consider what you have to work with.  So many times people think that they have to add a room to get the sort of space that they need, however, sometimes, something as simple as using your existing floor plan and simply adjusting it a bit to better fit your needs can reallocate your space more effectively.  Can you work with what space you have? Green design involves using environmental principles such as reduce, reuse, and recycle. Why not recycle your living space?

Home Remodeling and Natural Light

One of the biggest problems that most modern homes have is their use of electricity.  While switching to LED bulbs and compact fluorescent lights can help, sometimes, adding a skylight or a window can help to reduce your carbon footprint, reduce your electrical use, and incorporate natural light into your design as well.  If you get the right sort of skylights and windows it will not even add to your energy bill.  When in doubt, consult an architect that does home remodeling.  He or she can help you with placement of the windows and skylights to help you get light without it being overpowering or not getting enough light to a room. And using light effectively is one of the greatest tricks an architect can perform.  Natural light, when properly placed not only illuminates a room, it highlights it. For example, let’s say you have an amber colored wall. The use of a window or a skylight on this surface can reflect light into the rest of the room, and give it an almost homey sepia touch.

So remember, sustainability is all about the choices you make.  You want to reduce your carbon footprint, as well as take what you have and make it better.  And you want the advice of a professional whenever possible.  The perfect consultant for any project of this sort is your local custom home remodeling architect.

A custom home remodeling architect is someone that can help you rearrange your living space so it is a better fit.  For example, let’s say you have children that have grown up and moved out.  The spare bedroom can be remodeled into an office, or maybe a home gym.  Or, maybe on the other hand, what if you’re a small family that is about to get bigger.  You’re going to need another bedroom, and maybe another bathroom too.  Maybe you have all the room you need, but you want to renovate your home into a luxury showplace.

A Professional Architect Can Give Your Home a Million Dollar Look

Because of the training that an architect receives, they are well versed in aesthetics.  Simple rearranging a few light sources, and using them cunningly can totally transform a home from drab to dazzling in just a short period of time.  Even something as subtle as installing a skylight  can make a room into a showpiece.

When you find an architect to remodel your home, communication is key.  Look at all of those home makeover shows where the architect is given carte blanche to remodel someone’s home, and the homeowners have a smile that looks like a grimace at the end result.  Your input should always be welcome, and your tastes should definitely be a deciding factor.  Your architect should understand that when you say you want to redecorate, and you love Art Deco, that a craftsman cottage will not meet your needs.  Or, let’s say you want a luxury sitting room, and instead you get a tiny living room that looks like it belongs in a ranch style home circa 1955.

Remodeling your home is a morale booster.  It is one of those projects that when completed will make your home an elegant complement to your life.  So know your tastes, remember that when in doubt, earth tones go with almost everything, and above all else, get the right custom home remodeling architect for your project.
