5 Ways a Main Level Remodel Transforms Your Home

If you love your home but don’t love the layout, a main level remodel is the perfect way to turn your home into your ideal space.

Few home remodeling projects truly transform your home the same way a main level remodel does. Here are just a few ways how this extensive project makes your home feel new again.

1. Open Up the Space

One of the key benefits of a main level remodel is how it allows you to create an open floor plan. Many of our clients come to us with homes built in the 1950s – 1980s; these homes can feel compartmentalized and cramped.

By opening up space with a main level remodel, you let in more natural light, airflow, and sound.

2. Create a House that Works for Your Family

One common reason why homeowners opt for a main level remodel is because their current home’s layout doesn’t mesh with their needs. Sometimes they want a bathroom on the main level, a more easily-accessible laundry room or a mudroom, but their current home’s layout doesn’t allow this. A main level remodel transforms your home into a design that works for your lifestyle.

3. Add Space

Another benefit to a main level remodel is how much space it can add to your home. Some clients opt for an extra bedroom and/or bathroom on the main level, some a 3-season porch and others just more room for a kitchen/living room – whatever the addition, it’s much easier to add to a main floor than an upper floor.

4. Better Kitchen

Often, a kitchen remodel will need to extend the boundaries of the current kitchen to create more space to move around. This also allows the homeowners to create a more cohesive flow from the kitchen a living room area. A main level remodel truly allows you to create the kitchen of your dreams.

5. More Space to Entertain

A main level remodel restructures the layout of your home, allowing you to craft a space that’s perfect for entertaining. Many of our clients opt for a more open floorplan, which makes it easier for guests to communicate across rooms. Hosts in the kitchen can still chat with their guests in the living room without the barrier of walls and doorways.
