Home Office Additions and Renovations Burlington Wi

When you built your home, you knew you would spend many hours playing with your kids, making meals and memories, and getting a much needed retreat away from your job. What you didn’t know is that you would soon be spending those 40+ hours you work every week cramped up at your tiny kitchen table because your company has decided to go remote. 

Right now at least 71% of white collar employees are currently working from home with no office return date in sight. Many employers have decided to completely forego a physical office and allow their employees to work wherever they feel comfortable, which may mean you’re sharing your office space with your spouse and school aged children as well. Not only can that cause a decline in productivity at work, but it can also cause a strain on family relationships. 

Working from home may be the new normal, but the stress behind it doesn’t have to be. Elite Improvements can design a custom plan that fits perfectly with your lifestyle, floorplan, and budget to make working from home feel a little bit easier. That could be as simple as remodeling a space to make room for a small office, or adding a whole new addition to your home to make sure everyone has the space they need to be productive. 

One option would be to make your current office space functional. A few things to consider would be what you do and what the most important features are to make your life a little easier. A teacher would want visible space behind his or her desk for a white board or bulletin board for students to be able to follow along, as well as plenty of storage and shelving units that still look esthetically pleasing. Someone who works as a call center representative would need a quiet space that is set up to promote focusing and productivity. Do you have young children that are going to be home as well while you are working? If your space allows, you have the option to add in a space for your kids to play and be creative while still within your sight. With a custom home office design, Elite Improvements will make your space work for you.

Another option would be adding in a whole new space. Do you have an empty basement you had no clue what to do with? Adding a designated office space will not only give you space to get your work done, it will also add value to your home should you choose to sell in the future. If your home doesn’t currently have the space to build a new room, a home addition is always a fantastic way to add square footage and value to your home. The idea of extending your living space may seem daunting, however our team will work with you every step of the way to ensure you’re comfortable and confident with your decision!

Whether you’re looking for an expansion or a simple remodel, our team at Elite Improvements is here and ready to talk about making our new normal work for you and your family! Contact Elite Improvements today!

Room Additions for Your Southeastern Wisconsin Home

Usually, building a room addition is a big investment of both time and money. Before hiring Elite Improvements as your room addition contractor or starting your DIY room addition project, you can consider these following tips:

  • Know Your Options

Before you commit to your room addition project, you may consider reconfiguring your current space to make more sense. Think about the spaces you currently have including an attic or basement, which could be used to meet your unique needs for more room. You might also have a room that is very rarely used that could be repurposed in accordance to your budget.

Instead of adding a new room including master or kitchen suite, you might be able to get rid of the interior walls to incorporate adjacent spaces. Even with the need for patching several areas of flooring and ceilings, as well as building new support for replacing load-bearing walls, the cost is may be lower than a full addition. Always assess your home’s existing footprint to know if there are good ways of using the space you have.

  • Always Prioritize Your Needs

Once you have decided that the room addition is the perfect solution for you, determine the necessities for your new room. Think of all the things that your space currently lacks and how the new room can offer it. Keep in mind the use of your existing rooms and determine the issues you need resolved. For instance, if you are building a new kitchen, you would want to consider having a flow that will match the way you prepare ingredients, clean, and cook. For new bathrooms, consider the number of family members who will use it. Having a clear view what you require is a way to ensure you end with the best room addition.

  • Know Who Will Do the Work

Unless you’re very skilled in construction work, room additions aren’t a DIY project. There are several homeowners who decide to do the job. But, being your own contractor requires knowledge of construction and materials. Plus, you also need skills and time to manage everything. The best way to build a room addition successfully is through hiring a professional home improvements contractor: Elite Improvements.

Kitchen and Bathroom Remodeling Burlington Wisconsin

Your kitchen and bathroom are two of the most important parts of your home. Unfortunately, at one point, these places need to be given either a minor or major face lift. Some people think that kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects are overwhelming. But the truth is, there are several simple tips that you can follow to get your dream bathroom and kitchen.

Remodel In, Not Out

Avoid blowing out the side or back or your home with a huge addition, unless you plan to live there for many years to come. Elite Improvements can help you find ways you can reconfigure the existing space to make things work better. We can work on a new layout of your kitchen. That tub that you seldom use can be removed and converted to a stand up glass shower. You can also get rid of the formal dining room that you only use once every year and go for a family room or a larger kitchen instead.

Small Tweaks Can Mean Big Changes

Among the best things about not going to bigger spaces is that you can splurge on features that will be much more usable for your family and friends. It could be a walk in show, granite countertops or a glass tile backsplash. Create key elements that serve as focal points that perfectly reflect your tastes, style and preferences.

Save Money by Going Green

When thinking of starting a kitchen and bathroom remodeling project, you might want to know that energy efficiency is not merely a market buzz. The truth is, it can help you save money in both the short and long term. Doors, windows, insulation and appliances that are energy efficient are not just smart decisions for the planet but also sincerely smart investments for your pocketbook.

Put Rooms and Spaces to Good Use

You can eliminate seldom used spaces, dining rooms or living rooms. The latest trend these days is to open spaces that will give you the chance to use your house to the fullest while enjoying an ability to entertain. For instance, if you have a small bathroom that sits next to a seldom used guest room, you can knock out the walls and create a luxurious and spacious master bath instead.

Elite Improvements home remodeling company out of Burlington, Wisconsin will make sure that all these things will be considered to create that wonderful home that you want and deserve. We service Burlington, Union Grove, Waterford, Elkhorn, Lake Geneva and surrounding areas.
