Home Remodeling Is A Clear Path To Your Forever Home

You may be living in your perfect family home, what the media calls your “forever home” and not realize it. As time passes, families and lifestyles change. Even so, you love your Madison WI neighborhood and your home. A great location, schools and friends are terrific reasons to enjoy what you have. And there’s nothing wrong with wanting to add a few refinements and upgrades. Your home ages as you do, so why not enjoy life together?

How has your lifestyle evolved? School-aged children grow up and move on to lives of their own. Family members often need support. What do you dream of for your home? A larger master bathroom with a walk-in shower? Or perhaps a chef-worthy kitchen to host friends and expanding families?

Each year more and more people graduate to the “empty nest” class. Or young families welcome additions. In each case remodeling a room or two is often in the cards. Renovation projects easily impact family’s futures. The great thing about a new bathroom or eye-opening kitchen is that they add value every day. Remodeling and renovating existing homes transforms them, bringing wishes and dreams into the real world.

Accept The Challenge Of A Home Remodel

Remodeling requires a significant commitment from every member of the family. It isn’t an overnight process. It can be a challenge. Creating a clear, well thought-out plan to bring your vision into focus is the first step. Before you can develop a cohesive plan with a professional remodeling contractor, you have to have a clear understanding of your goals. That means sitting down with everyone in the family and going over what they need and what they want. You don’t want anyone coming back a month after the project is done pointing out what’s missing, do you?

Put all your thoughts in context before you make decisions. Consult the family and ask:

  • What do you really NEED? The lines between needs and wants are often blurred. List the issues driving your remodeling project.
  • What do you WANT? What possibilities are there you strongly desire? Which ones can be ruled out if there are budget or logistics problems?
  • If you can have it all, what do you wish for? Are there elements you fantasize about and would include if you could have everything you want?

Remodeling can make your home feel and look like new. Consider the high-impact changes within your reach:

  • Bathroom renovations – bigger, brighter and up-to-date.
  • Kitchen renovations – wide-open, functional and efficient.
  • Basement remodeling – take advantage of all the underused space beneath your feet.
  • Additions – including decks.
  • Adding skylights or sun tunnels.
  • Brighten a room with natural light from a bay or bow window.
  • Master bedroom additions or expansions.
  • A permanent work from home office.

Remodeling not only changes the building, it changes your life.

What was your dream home when you moved in? Dreams change and so can your home.

You Want To Remodel – Where Do You Start

In the 21st century function has replaced styling as the driving force in all remodeling plans. There are two rooms in every home that top the list of priorities for attention: bathrooms and kitchens. Up-grades and up-dates breathe new life into these vital family spaces.

Sims Exteriors & Remodeling is a full-spectrum remodeling contractor with divisions specializing in exterior features – roofing, siding and windows specifically. It can complete whatever project you conceive. When it comes to the top two rooms on the priority list, Sims excels.

Kitchen Remodels – Focus On The Family Hub

The kitchen has come full-circle. In bygone eras the farm kitchen was the center of family activities. Today the kitchen has reclaimed the role. Expanding and enlivening the kitchen is a wonderful way to empower an active family.

Families gather, guests are entertained and most days start in the kitchen. Is your kitchen home base where the family connects every day?.

Sims kitchen specialists understand how to incorporate all the qualities you like about your present kitchen into a brand new, up-dated version.

Our skilled craftsmen are committed to excellence. Decades of experience has taught us to maximizing space in every room design. Combining high-tech systems, ergonomically designed products and efficient task lighting to create a truly memorable room. The result is a kitchen remodel reflecting your character. Every kitchen remodel includes attention to details, such as:

  • Cooking requirements – stoves, microwaves, counter space for appliances.
  • Storage – for food, cookware, etc. Would a spacious pantry excite you?
  • In-room dining.
  • Specialized food preparation areas.
  • Waste disposal.
  • Media center, message station, mini-office.
  • Appliance choices – gas vs. electric.
  • Cabinet sizes, shapes, hardware and materials.
  • Plumbing fixtures.
  • Ceiling treatments.
  • Flooring options.
  • Countertop materials.
  • Backsplash materials.
  • Wall coverings.
  • Lighting options – overhead, work areas, under the counters.
  • Windows and window treatments.

Your imagination is the key to blending technology, craftsmanship and lifestyle. Are you ready to make the kitchen of your dreams a reality?

Bathroom Remodels – Small, Medium And Extra Large

Changes to any bathroom represent significant benefits. Your options include everything from a small powder room to a second, guest bathroom and a spacious, spa-like master suite. A successful bathroom renovation includes everything from flooring to fixtures and furnishing. Sims specialists understand the dynamics of creating working solutions in relatively compact spaces.

Bathrooms are often overlooked in the initial design process. For decades bathrooms were basic “utility rooms.” Taking cues from hotels and resorts, modern bathrooms have become retreats from the stress of daily life.

Are you ready to turn your bathrooms into spaces you’re proud to show off? Consider these options:

  • Upgrading and adding modern fixtures – introducing colors, textures and new materials.
  • Expanding floor area – knocking out walls isn’t just for kitchens any more.
  • Creating additional storage space -- built-in linen closets and cabinets.
  • Adding or improving mechanical systems – changing from a jetted tub to a free-standing soaking tub, or vice versa.
  • Adding utilities – consider larger hot water heaters to go with multi-head showers and specialty tubs.
