Guest Bedroom and Bathroom

The first expectation of any guest is to have a bedroom and a bathroom with privacy in the house they are staying in. If you do not have a dedicated guest bedroom, then you may consider using the space available in the basement or constructing a simple bedroom-bathroom setup within your compound. Simple renovations can be done to give the new bedroom a classy look that will take away the feeling that it was just a basement or compound space earlier.

·      The floor can be remodeled by using vinyl sheets that give a very luxurious look. There are a wide range of choices available, from antique to modern.

·      A bathroom with a shower is always appreciated, because who wouldn’t love to have a cool shower during the hot summer mornings?

·      Guests would even love a tub that they can get into at the end of a hot day.

·      A cabinet with space to hang their clothes, a reading lamp and charging port near the bed will give the guest the convenience of a hotel room even as they stay in your house.

·      Curtains and thick blinds will provide privacy and keep out the sun during the hot mornings.

The Outdoor Life

After being holed up in the house all through the winter, anyone would be excited to be out in the open and enjoy the climate. Having guests inside the house can often increase home maintenance but you can completely avoid that by giving your guests a complete outdoor experience!

·      A well-equipped outdoor kitchen can be set up in your yard; barbeque stands, grills, hand washing area, tables, chairs etc. will not only be cost effective but also relatively easy to maintain.

·      A deck with a pergola and a patio will make your guests feel relaxed and comfortable.

Your experienced contractorcan give you many ideas to remodel the outdoors, as they are constantly updated on the latest trends and newest designs.

The Costs Involved

Remodeling during summer is quite popular and there is a lot of demand for labor and materials. This may cause the prices to go up and in fact, labor may not be very easy to find. The upside is that you get revenue by hosting guests all through the summer and make up for the money spent on remodeling in no time.

While remodeling your house, it is crucial to connect with your contractor based on your vision. Choosing the right contractor is indeed a tough job when each one of them is promising you heaps.
