Open-concept floor plans have become one of the most sought-after features among home buyers and homeowners alike. As a remodeling company, the majority of the projects we do involve some extent of removing or shortening walls to create a more open, airy overall feel. Among the many before and after transformations we share, the ones that include a wall removal are by far the most impressive. It’s amazing how different a space can look and how much better the area can be utilized once unnecessary walls have been removed!
If you’ve followed along with our blog posts for any length of time, you have probably noticed that nearly all of our major home remodeling projects are completed in homes that were built 20 or more years ago. Typically, after a home has been around that long, frequently used areas (like kitchens and bathrooms) need to be remodeled; not only because they’re out of style aesthetically, but also because they have become worn out and do not function as well as they once did. However, just because the homes we usually remodel are older doesn’t mean that new homes are not good candidates for remodeling. In fact, in some instances, remodeling a home that is less than 10 years old can be easier and sometimes cheaper. Working in older homes often entails correcting unforeseen issues, like plumbing that may be leaking or rotten, or electrical lines that are not to code. Fixing these things can add up, costing more in time and money. Newer homes, on the other hand, tend to be in much better condition and require less repair work. Most of the time, the remodeling of newer homes is for the primary purpose of meeting the client’s personal preferences, not for the sake of improving a design that is unusable. Such was the case for our recent master bathroom remodel in Fort Worth.
After years of sharing a tiny master bathroom, our recent clients in Fort Worth, Texas were more than ready to add on the custom-designed bathroom of their dreams! Along with adding more square footage and luxury features, they also wanted to incorporate their outdoor space into the remodel. Check out the full story on our blog post.
