5 Ways to Remodel Your Home Like the Pros | Potomac, MD Email Print

Written by Bob. Categories: Remodeling Tags: Remodeling Potomac Maryland, home remodeling potomac md, Potomac MD, home remodeling, remodeling projects, remodeling potomac md

5-ways-to-remodel-your-home-like-the-pros-potomac-mdIf you're a home remodeling junky like we are, you likely spend a great deal of your free-time glued to television shows on DIY networks. Shows that provide tips on creating your perfect living environment, sometimes on a dime, and sometimes extravagantly. Both are good.

Trust us... we know the feeling. We love decorating and remodeling, too. We love exploring the ins and outs of how to make a bathroom more functional; ways to create a comfy, cozy den; and paints, colors, and accessories to make any room pop. 

In this post, we'll give you 5 decorating ideas to help you create your dream home. So sit back, grab a pen and paper, and read on!

1. Open Floor Plans: They aren't the right fit for every home, but an open floor plan touches many people right in their heart. An open floor plan is perfect for entertaining, decorating, designing, and experimenting with colors, contrast, and contentment. We recommend looking into an open floor if your home allows for it. 

2. Utility Room Functionality: The utility room, or if you prefer, the laundry room, is just one of those rooms people often forget. Yet it serves great purpose. We think that a functional space has potential for coziness, while still being inviting. Consider that when you are re-designing your next room.

3. Guest Room of "Shoulds": If you have a guest room, maybe it's time to rethink its purpose, its design, and its feel. A guest room should be formal yet comfortable. It should have a great theme while exuding cleanliness. Similar to a hotel, a guest room should invite your guests in for the night, and relax their senses.

4. Lighting Everywhere: No one likes a drab or dull living area (or any area). Lighting in all the right places is illuminating for everyone who lives in your home. If you're really looking to make an impact, consider installing skylights to let every inch of light possible in.

5. Bathroom Elegance: Bathrooms are sometimes small, but they are no less important. A well-designed bathroom is something of beauty. Marble counter tops, muted eggshell colors, gold and silver fixtures, and various lighting choices for the user are all excellent ways of turning a normal bathroom into a magazine cover.

For more information on how we can help you create the home you've always dreamed of, please contact us any time.

Small Bathroom Remodeling: 3 Tips to Make The Diminutive Functional | Arlington VA Email Print

Written by Bob. Categories: Bathrooms Tags: bathroom additions, bathroom design, bathroom flooring

c8d7b444-15d3-4918-c705-8553ebe3a1e3-thumbIf you have a small bathroom, then you know how frustrating simple, typical bathroom processes are. Showers, after all, shouldn't require that you snake yourself into your tub and stand in one spot. They should be relaxing and soothing and leave you with a sense of clean. Sound familiar?

But before you schedule a full bathroom remodeling job, and try to expand what you've got, we thought we'd give you some tips on making your small bathroom more functional with a little bit of labor.

Alter The Layout

If your bathroom is at least 36-40 square feet, you can apply this easy redesign guideline. Simply consider your bathing routine. If you are more of a shower person, have your tub completely removed and a small stand up shower installed. If you are more for baths, and you have both a bath and a shower, remove your shower and simply install shower heads.

For Bathrooms that are 6' X 6' 

Yet another common size for a small bathroom is 6' X 6'. This size bathroom is noticeably small for any home. They often don't even have a bathtub, rather, a corner shower. To ensure this bathroom feels bigger, allow for a smooth flow through. This may mean you have to change sink and toilet placement, but a little goes a long way.

Smaller than Usual Half Baths

Hals baths are traditionally tiny. There is usually only room for a sink and a toilet, the essentials in this sort of setting. To convert your half bath into a functional full bath with little plumbing required, install a sink converter onto the faucet, plumb in a floor drain, and add shower curtain.

While this may sound like a lot of work for some people, think of it this way: by installing an extra shower, you not only created a second usable full bathroom, you increased your home's value in the process.

5 DIY Home Remodeling Jobs You Can Achieve for Less Than $100 | Bethesda MD Email Print

Written by Bob. Categories: Remodeling Tags: home remodeling bethesda md, custom homes, Bethesda MD, home remodeling

c6c3736e-fe3b-4efc-c04c-379807d83c77-thumbOur home is our castle, but making it appear that way without cleaning out our wallets is tough.

So while home remodeling projects are a priority for many homeowners looking to make their house a home, some shy away for fear of unwanted debt. But this doesn't have to be the case.

Looking for some easy ways to make your home your castle without breaking the bank? Then read on!

Here are 5 easy home renovations you can do that cost less than $100.

1. Entryway Pizazz: If the front of your home is lacking true curb appeal, try sprucing it up. Apply some new paint to your door (think bright and welcoming), buy some simple flower planters for a flanked, tasteful entry, and throw down a welcome mat. It's that easy.

2. Apply Furniture Covers: For those who are looking for nominal yet financially sound ways of adding a new look to their living areas, consider covered chairs and couches in new material. Vibrant colors and fabrics can turn shabby into chic in a hurry.

3. Bulbs Burning Bright: Under lit is underwhelming. Whereas over lit is too dramatic. So find the middle ground. Install some track lighting instead of using traditional overhead lights, and change out incandescent bulbs for highly efficient fluorescent. Not only will you save money, your home will feel more welcoming and relaxing.

4. Bathroom Luxury: It's 2015, what does your bathroom look like? Change out those old, drab switch plates for new and fancy styles. Follow our lighting advice from above. Replace old toilet seats and simple bathroom hardware, and throw down some new bath mats and rugs. Top it off with some new, clean paint and enjoy your bathroom once again.

5. Drapes Add Special Flair: Take a walk around your home and count the windows where the drapes have lived for a year or more. Now head to your home improvement store and do some pricing. A simple drapery change, like adding a valance or swag, or even changing curtains all together, will add creative flair and whimsy to those windows we have forgotten.

Bathroom Remodeling to Make it a Luxurious Living Space to Linger | Great Falls VA Email Print

Written by Bob. Categories: Bathrooms Tags: Bathroom remodeling, custom homes, bathroom additions, Great Falls VA

d03eeea1-2fde-46b8-dce4-4088675abff8-thumbTrends in bathroom remodeling will make the bathroom a more livable space in the New Year for people who want to extend their time pampering and primping. Bathrooms are becoming a retreat for relaxing as well as entertaining with remote-controlled TVs and other electronics. According to an article by Elle Décor, the bathroom of the New Year will be outfitted the same way the rest of the home is outfitted with everything from furniture and music to textiles, art and refrigerators. In-floor or radiant heating can make the space more comfortable so you aren’t anxious to get ready and hurry out of the bathroom. Homeowners in Maryland or Virginia can rely on the expertise of a builder offering architectural design services related to the bathroom and other areas of the home.

  • A clean, minimalist vibe

Even though a modern bathroom may have all the toys and gadgets that are found in other parts of the home, the most popular design look is modern and sleek. Framed mirrors can add some style to a bathroom without making too dramatic of a statement. Other modern features include built-in handles on bathroom cabinetry instead of pulls and knobs.

  • Individual spaces

Another consideration with bathroom remodeling is who will be using the space. Design experts say the trend is to have more individual spaces in bathrooms. Your bathroom can have different zones such as wet and dry zones. There may be designated dressing areas, private water closets and an area for applying makeup.

  • A place to linger

Because the bathroom is a place to linger in the New Year, more people may choose steam showers and soaking tubs. According to an article by Huffington Post, everything in the bathroom will be upgraded in the New Year. Experts expect a move away from tubs with shower surrounds. Bowl-shaped sinks will also be passé.

Other bathroom trends in the New Years may include the appearance of more Quartz countertops, backsplashes that make a statement and take up the entire wall instead of just a small space. Also, the bathroom of today may come with a seating area. For parents taking care of small children at bath time, a seating area can be practical and more comfortable.

At Natelli Homes, we can help you remodel your bathroom, kitchen or other spaces in the New Year in your Maryland or Virginia home. For more information on our architectural and remodeling services, please contact us.
