Whole House Renovation Services in Lake Forest

Do you want to transform your home? Lake Forest homeowners are focusing on whole house renovation services that bring something fresh and new to the traditional living situation. Large remodeling projects can be as extensive as moving walls to reconfigure space, giving the exteriors a complete facelift to add curb appeal, to updating everything from the floor up.

Whether it’s interior, exterior, or both, a renovation project can be extensive and intimidating, but not if you work with a design-build team of professionals with years of experience. For example, you don’t like the exterior appearance of your home – you see it as dated and unattractive. With the right design-build company, you can skip all the back and forth between a multitude of contractors and subcontractors and only communicate with one team so you can remain in your home as your exteriors take on a new life.

Working with a design-build team of professionals ensures that any addition project goes off without a hitch

If you need assistance with your home remodeling ideas, and most people do, you should work directly with a designer who is part of the design-build experts to make your ideas become a reality. Going this route ensures that you encounter no miscommunication and projects are completed on time and as promised.

Bathroom and kitchen remodeling

If you’re a Lake Forest resident looking for interior remodeling that will make your bathroom and kitchen amazing, you’ve got a lot in common with people all over the nation. Exciting new advances in appliances and materials become the catalyst for tearing out the old and bringing in the new. For instance, “smart” appliances offer state-of-the-art connection via smartphone, tablet or computer, so homeowners get more information and control over their appliances than ever before. They also help save money on utility bills.

It’s fairly normal to become completely bored with kitchen and bathroom designs that have become (and might have always been) somewhat dysfunctional, especially today due to the fact that Americans are changing the way they use these rooms. For example, kitchens have become more of a gathering area for the entire family. Lounging areas are now a common inclusion in these designs. Bathrooms are taking on more spa-like updates, providing a room that functions as a traditional bathroom with the added touches, like steam rooms, walk-in showers and heated floors for heightened relaxation.

Bathroom and kitchen additions are also increasingly popular projects. These add extra room for the homeowner who doesn’t want to go house hunting for a larger residence, and it also allows for the transformation of other rooms in the house. Again, working with a design-build team of professionals ensures that any addition project goes off without a hitch.

Basement remodeling that add space and value to the home in Lake Forest

Is your Lake Forest home ready for a transformation? Look no farther than your basement to achieve just that. The basement is the perfect place for a home remodel for families that have outgrown their current living space. It’s also a cost effective option because building up or out has many more costs attached.

At New Concept 180, we’ve worked with clients who have vastly different needs, which means we take a custom approach to just about every one of them. Some families have added more children to the dynamic over the years, which means they need an extra bedroom or two. They find the solution by converting their unused (and perhaps unlivable) basements into warm, comfortable spaces. And it doesn’t have to be just about bedrooms, our clients are choosing to convert basements in entertainment rooms and just about anything else you can imagine.

We essentially transform your old basement into what you have envisioned.

Choosing the right contractor for the job is important, because the basement remodel, though less complex that building out or up, can involve everything from installing new plumbing to electrical services, masonry to carpentry services and anything in between.

At New Concept 180, we are a design and build team that has all the experts we need to complete your project under one roof, which means there are no communication issues and your project goes off without a hitch.

House remodeling with additions

For many Lake Forest residents, additions just make sense. Not only do they add extra living space and include updated materials and appliances, they improve the value of a home. Furthermore, remodeling a room in your existing space with additions is an attractive option compared with putting your house on the market, hoping you get a fair offer for it, and going on an exhaustive search for a different home that suits your needs.

People are taking a variety of approaches when it comes to multiple room addition projects.

As a highly regarded community, Lake Forest residents are proud to be where they are, and they want to avoid moving at all costs. This is one reason building up and/or out has advantages. Multiple room projects, while large in scope, are another completely transformative project. As more homes become multi-generational, an in-law extension gives parents and grandparents a sense of independence with their own kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms while also being extremely close by and an active part of the extended family.

Single room additions, which are among the most popular projects, include:

Expanding families require more space to live comfortably, which is why adding a bedroom or family room is so popular with growing families. Taking on a sunroom project offers the best of the indoors and outdoors, while a dormer gives the façade of the home a completely different look and frees up more usable space inside, including in the loft or attic of a home that is underused.

Upgrade with a design-build contractor

When it comes time to upgrade your home, don’t choose just any home contractor; choose a design-build contractor. Your home remodeling company should be excellent at communicating, listening to you about your design ideas and what you want in your remodel, and they should also be a one-stop-shop that won’t require you to bring in subcontractors on your own.
