Recreational Additions And Renovations For A More Enjoyable Home

September 16, 2018 Off By Melinda Hudson

Homeowners are becoming far more innovative when choosing additions and renovations for a house. Entire sections of houses are now taking on distinctive personalities that reflect the interests and hobbies of the residents. There are three ideas that will help to create a functional, enjoyable and memorable space for family and friends.

Kitchen Lifestyle Suite

The suite makes it easy to entertain and provides a more efficient cooking and dining area.

An increasingly popular residential design build project is a kitchen lifestyle suite. This is normally a single large area or a multi-room space. The kitchen consists of modern custom countertops and appliances that blend in with the surrounding decor. The center of the suite has informal seating for anywhere from four to eight people along a central island. The far end of the space could contain a furniture suite and an entertainment center. This allows a person to cook in the kitchen without having to remain isolated from family or guests. It also creates a comfortable environment for friends and family while waiting for a meal. The suite makes it easy to entertain and provides a more efficient cooking and dining area.

Contemporary Game Space

Homeowners have many entertainment options that make spending time in the home or hosting guests more enjoyable. A large contemporary game room can provide a safe place for children to play. It also creates a unique and unexpected space in the house that will impress friends. A contemporary game room is usually a large area that can span two or more rooms. An open central area provides space for children to play. Hardwood floors and insulated walls help to keep the noise level down in the rest of the house. Homeowners could fill the room with a pool table, modular furniture and gaming systems attached to a complete entertainment center with surround sound. High ceilings and skylights can make the space feel more open and welcoming.

Garden Room and Tiered Deck

The room provides space for a worktable and rows of plants that require hardening before moving outside.

Homeowners who enjoy gardening or raising plants will benefit from a garden room and an attached tiered deck as part of a residential design build project. A garden room normally has stained wooden walls and floors, creating a rustic feeling although a more modern stone or stainless steel decor is possible. The room provides space for a worktable and rows of plants that require hardening before moving outside. Large windows provide light and protection from sudden cold snaps. A tiered deck just outside of the room creates organized areas around stairs and platforms that function like protected raised beds. It also forms an outdoor staging area for plants and a relaxing place to enjoy a garden in bloom.
