Tips to Remodel & Refresh Your Home

No doubt about it, we’ve received an early dose of spring weather in Kansas City. With warmer days, you may start thinking about spring cleaning and remodeling projects to spruce up your home. There’s good reason to tackle projects now, when you can open windows for fresh air – and before summer heat kicks in. Here are some projects to consider adding to your list:

Build your own spa – update the bathroom.

Even just updating fixtures and accessories can freshen up your bath. If you’re ready to take it a step further, there are several affordable options from flooring, to vanities, sinks, tub and shower inserts that can turn your everyday space into a relaxing retreat.

Add more living space – finish your basement.

Whether a man cave, a game room, a movie theater, or an office, you can transform that wasted space into your new favorite area. Basement remodels are great projects for getting creative. If you’re not using the space as a living area, you can take your time without disrupting the rest of your household.

Get cooking – grow the kitchen.

The kitchen is a popular space for families and friends to gather. It many homes, it is not just a place to break bread, but a relaxing spot to socialize and entertain. Expanding kitchens are a hot remodeling trend right now. Depending on your floorplan, consider taking out a dining room wall or breakfast nook to add square footage and open up light, then look for ways to add seating, such as a bar area. No room in the house? Look at options to expand into your outdoor living and grilling space.

Breathe clean air – test for radon.

Don’t limit your spring cleaning and remodeling to just the physical aspects of your home; make sure your family is breathing safe, radon-free air too. Now is a great time to test for radon, and the process is super easy. Call Certified Radon at 816.587.3500 to schedule testing or visit today!
