Unveiling Our Future Room Renovation Plans

by Editorial Team

It’s laborious to consider we’re three years into designing our moody fashionable conventional residence. Generally folks will ask me, “What are you gonna do once you’re completed?” I can’t take into consideration that but — I’m not even shut! Whereas I really feel nice about so many rooms in the home, some are nonetheless on the “to sort out” checklist. A few of them are simply in section one with a coat of paint and dramatic drapes. However I’ve extra up my sleeve, it’s only a matter of prioritizing rooms, acknowledging the time they take. I needed to share pictures of rooms which might be nonetheless within the “earlier than” or ‘”in-process” stage, and allow you to in on my plans for what they *may* be.

Main Rest room

That is our actually large challenge of the 12 months. We began planning for this one final 12 months, and I may simply by no means decide to the structure we chosen. We stored laying aside inserting the order with our rest room design firm…it’s a complete story I outlined on this weblog submit. However now that now we have a brand new plan in place, I’m actually excited to get this one going. I envision a spacious room with coloration, stunning tile, built-in wardrobes. It will likely be an unimaginable transformation!

Greta’s Bed room

This can be a room we’d prefer to sort out this 12 months. Her room nonetheless has a boob mild in it! We’ve actually simply painted and hung curtains. Greta is due for some new furnishings: a brand new mattress, a brand new artwork space. I requested her if she needed bookcases as a result of she’s at all times studying and he or she stated no, however we’ll see! I believe she’s on the hardest age to design for — she’s 14. Within the subsequent 10 years she’s going to alter drastically, so I’m actually solely specializing in what she likes for the subsequent 4 years. I’m not pondering of a perpetually situation. She truly did pick a wallpaper that she preferred (I believe Polly’s room and Faye’s room impressed her). She has a extremely nice room for built-ins so I wish to do one thing with these. And she or he has requested for a bulletin board, so we’ll be certain we embrace one.

The (Hidden) Storage Room

Individuals ask about this area on a regular basis as a result of one time I stated this was going to be the playroom. It was once a part of a extremely giant room that we reduce in half to make the laundry room. Our storage room nonetheless has the unique carpet in it — we by no means even put hardwood flooring in there. It’s at present only a room the place decor goes to die. However now that now we have our attic organized, there’s actually no cause why that stuff is there. It truly causes confusion as a result of we are able to’t keep in mind if one thing is within the attic or within the storage room! My dream is to make this a extremely nice craft room — it’s superbly lit. I’ve at all times needed to have a spot for wrapping paper, ribbons, paint provides, markers and scissors, so I’m pondering of doing Semihandmade cupboards to create storage. It’s truly good we didn’t do the hardwoods there, as a result of I’m envisioning tile flooring. The actual kicker is that I want to do that room earlier than my children get too outdated! I’m going to ask for this room for my birthday, and if it’s not this 12 months then it’s gotta be subsequent 12 months. This room is one thing I’m dying to do.

The Entry

I might like to do the entry this 12 months. That will utterly wrap up the primary flooring which might really feel actually good. I’m so anxious to get a brand new entrance door and add some trim work and paint to the entry. The credenza that we introduced with us is method too extensive for that entry. In our final home we had an enormous open space for an entry, so an even bigger thicker credenza made sense. This home has a slender hallway that turns into extra slender when now we have a credenza in it. So we positively want some furnishings modifications within the entry.

Upstairs Touchdown

I want to remodel this tiny little room — it’s going to be the music room. We have now our piano in it now, and it has some built-ins that had been there once we moved in. However the best way they designed the built-ins makes the arch off-centered, and it drives me completely bonkers. We’re not going to have doorways — it’ll have an encased opening and perhaps some punchy wallpaper. Velvet will probably be in right here someplace. I believe it might be good to have some type of curtain system the place you may shut the curtains to disguise the Juliet balcony and the door. The ladies like to do reveals up there, so that will make it somewhat extra theatrical.

Dwelling Room

Technically we haven’t completed something to our front room besides paint it, very similar to Greta’s room! It doesn’t have any new furnishings in it aside from the espresso desk. The brand new black inside window trim has additionally made such a distinction, however I’ve extra concepts in thoughts. I’d like so as to add much more trim and presumably do two paint colours in right here as an alternative of simply the one. I’m envisioning built-in bookcases in the lounge with library lights above them. I wish to body within the artwork on that wall with these bookcases. We’ve talked about including skylights in there and beams as effectively. So section two is on the horizon!

My sister Andi informed me the opposite day that essentially the most off-brand factor about me is that I’ve a double-shot basketball sport in my home. It’s giant and there’s no getting round it. Generally I can’t consider I’ve that in my home both! It lives within the playroom, so this room goes to be a design problem. However the bones of the room are so good — there’s a lot potential. I’d like to spotlight the entire fantastic issues about it, making it a enjoyable place for the youngsters, as a result of that’s what it’s about. I nonetheless have all their toys in there, however we’re sort of shifting out of the toys section. I’m preserving a psychological observe of the final time they performed with this play kitchen or that tent. (It looks like simply yesterday the IKEA kitchen was their favourite – tears!) So far as design, I actually wish to do wood-clad partitions someplace my home. I’ve thought of it for the playroom, however there’s not a particular plan there but. I don’t see us attending to the playroom this 12 months as a lot as I wish to — it kills me that it’s sitting within the state that it’s in.

The Visitor Home

I wrote about this in a previous weblog submit, however we wish to consolidate the visitor home with the fitness center and make it one actual visitor home that has a bed room with a door on it, a residing space, somewhat kitchenette and loo and laundry room. I would possibly embrace somewhat fitness center space someplace within the visitor home nonetheless. However we put within the fitness center when it was COVID-era right here, and we weren’t going out to the fitness center. Is that lockdown ever going to return again round? Hopefully not, and I’m positively going to maintain among the train tools however I don’t suppose I want a full set of dumbbells anymore. The plan is to have the visitor home rest room accessible to the out of doors residing space. It will likely be an enormous enterprise, and I’m actually excited for it. That is in all probability a next-year challenge too.

I like my residence and each area it offers me with my household. We’ve put a lot into the home during the last three years, and it’s thrilling to see the probabilities as effectively!
