7 Home Remodeling Projects That Add Luxury To Your Home
When planning a home remodeling project think beyond just making your home more up-to-date. Let Putnam Builders take your remodel project to the next level by adding luxurious options to your home. Luxury home upgrades make your home feel like a castle and make it more sought-after when it’s time to sell. By adding luxury and comfort to you home, not only will your home will increase in value, your quality of life will improve as well.
Central vacuum is a high suction vacuum system with convenient inlet ports throughout the home. You plug lightweight vacuum hoses into the ports and the vacuumed debris collects in a bin located in your garage. Central vacs have up to 5 times the suction power of a traditional portable vacuum and are ideal for allergy sufferers.
A Spa-Like Bathroom
Transforming your bathroom into a soothing and relaxing retreat will make you feel like you’re living at a fancy resort. For the most impact transform your small shower into a spacious walk-in shower with steam room option. If you enjoy baths add a deep soak tub or whirlpool tub. Add more natural light by adding full wall windows or a skylight. Don’t forget the little touches like a heating rack for your towels, heated floors, bronze fixtures, and romantic dim lighting.
Don’t limit yourself to granite when selecting countertops. Quartz has a more luxurious look and is durable, easy to maintain and clean, and nearly impossible to stain. Quartz comes in just as many varieties as granite, so it’s easy to pick a color that compliments your décor. And don’t stop with just your kitchen. Add quartz to your bathroom counters, outdoor kitchen, walk-in closet shelving, backsplashes, and laundry room.
An elevator may seem overly extravagant, but you may want to incorporate it into your remodel, especially if your home is your retirement home. As you and family get older and encounter aging and mobility issues, an elevator will feel like a lifesaver. Having an elevator also means moving heavy objects upstairs is no longer a burden.
Adding radiant heating to your floors is surprisingly affordable and may lower your heating bills. Instead of waking up on a cold morning to step on tile that feels like ice, you could step on warm floors that make you feel indulged and cozy. If you’re already installing hardwood or tile flooring, you may want to add heated flooring as well.
A More Beautiful Kitchen
Chances are a kitchen upgrade is on your list to remodel, and it should be. Not only is the kitchen where you prepare meals, it’s also the heart of your home and where your family gathers. Luxury options include a walk-in pantry to avoid overcrowded cabinets. Full height cabinets that reach all the way to the ceiling will also boost your kitchen storage capacity while making your kitchen look larger and more impressive. Add hidden appliances and pull-out microwave drawers to allow your appliances to become part of the overall design.
A gourmet outdoor kitchen for summer barbecues will give your family an excuse to spend time together outside. Just because it’s outdoors is no reason for your outdoor kitchen to be any less impressive than your indoor kitchen. Consider stainless steel cooktops and a wood fire pizza oven for a dramatic look. Add a full-size refrigerator and a dishwasher and sink for easy clean up. Special touches like a retractable sun shade and wireless weatherproof speakers will make your outdoor kitchen a place people want to spend time.
