Removing Old Components
When starting home remodeling plans creative ideas are needed.
Consider removing building parts that are out-dated or don't function well.
When home remodeling, look at poorly positioned bays, bump-outs or additions. They can really be a problem for space and layout design.
Determine if a building component is in disrepair. If it's broken down - replace it!
Sometimes a New Door is All You Need!!
Or how about replacing the front entrance door with a new door with full or partial glass.
Not only will it modernize the space but create the feeling of openness.
If you're concerned about security, there are great doors that are glazed but include great security features. You need to keep safety in mind.
Remove The Old and In with The New
Completely re-design that space with new building components. Home remodeling plans should be thought out way ahead of the actual work.
By removing smaller and outdated windows that are located in poor locations - consider removing all the old windows and replacing with modern windows spanning side by side over the entire location of a wall. This will add the illusion of more space as well as modernize it.
Is there a wall with old, ill-situated windows that could be replaced with an entire wall of contemporary windows?
At my house, windows were placed everywhere. In some places, entire walls consist of glazing. With all the windows I have, it feels like the outdoors comes indoors.
Refresh, Renew and Restore
By re-defining the space you have, you might not need to expand further out.
When working on your remodeling plans, look at what can be refreshed, renewed or restored.
