SAN ANTONIO - If you are planing on doing any remodeling next year, take some time to evaluate how your home accommodates your guests during these holidays.
Pay close attention to the little issues that often accompany excess traffic in your home. Two areas that typically get little use throughout the year but are fully occupied during the holidays, are guest baths and spare bedrooms. Rarely will your guests actually use the bath tub, so a common remodel for a guest bath includes a bath tub to shower conversion.
If you are the preparer of holiday meals, now is the perfect time to evaluate your kitchen. So often homeowners focus on the aesthetics and gathering aspects of their kitchen, that they don’t take the time to fully evaluate how their kitchen could be more efficient for cooking. Make sure you analyze your food preparation areas along with your food serving surfaces. When it’s time to design your new counters, you can take these into consideration so that preparing a holiday meal can be done with ease.
If you will not be at home during the holidays and instead will be visiting family or friends, take notes on what aspects of their home works well for their guests and what areas could use some work. You will be able to use these evaluations when considering new designs for your home.
Take a few moments during the holidays and your remodeling project’s design will be better for it.
