Remodeling your home can be an exciting and overwhelming process. However, if you keep 3 key design principles in mind, you can ensure that your remodel will give you long-term benefits.
Energy efficiency should be a top priority. This means selecting energy-efficient appliances and materials that will help reduce your energy consumption. For example, install large enough electric panel (200amp) to be solar panel ready. Install your home with smart thermostat and smart water heater with circulator. Place R38 insulation in your attic. Wrap insulation around your heating ducts, insulate your exterior walls and floor if there is crawlspace.
An open concept layout can give your home a more spacious and flexible feel. It can not only be easily adapted to your changing needs. You can use this type of layout to create different areas for relaxing, entertaining, or working all at the same time. This can be a great way to make your home more efficient and stylish.
Lots of lights
If you want to create a bright and welcoming space, lots of lights can help. This is especially true for spaces that are meant for entertaining, like living rooms and kitchens. Having plenty of light can make a big difference in how people feel when they enter the space. A well lit room inspires confidence and creates an uplifting mood.
By following these simple tips, you can ensure that your home remodel will be both stylish and functional.
