A General Contractor Can Give You a New Bathroom

General Contractor
As a general contractor, we understand how critical bathrooms can be to the functionality of a home. While this is a room that does not get a lot of attention, and most people don't spend time talking about, your bathroom is one of the hardest-working rooms in your house. If you have a large family and only a couple of bathrooms, this room is working double duty and is probably very rarely empty. With the amount of people needing to brush their teeth, take a shower, get ready for school or work, and use the restroom, your bathroom never stops doing its job. But what if your bathroom is simply too small for all of the demands that are placed on it? What if your bathroom is too crowded or simply too outdated? In this scenario, it is highly likely that your family is undergoing undue stress due to the inefficiency of your bathroom.  The good news is that we can remodel your bathroom, expand it, and even give you a new one so that your family can get ready in style.

Remodel Your Bathroom to Increase the Efficiency of It

If you do not have the budget or the space to do an extension, it is possible for you to remodel your bathroom and to make it more efficient in the process. When we visit your home we will look at your space, discuss what your needs are, take measurements, and come up with solutions. We are solutions-oriented and as a general contractor, there is nothing that we cannot do.

Some of the easy ways that we can improve the efficiency of your space is to replace a single sink and vanity with a dual sink vanity combination. While you may be losing a little bit of counter space, you will be gaining the ability to have multiple people brush their teeth or get ready at the same time. This alone can make the morning routine go much faster and more smoothly. Another way to improve the efficiency of your space is to rearrange everything. Sometimes, for example, there's enough space for us to make a toilet closet. By placing the toilet into its own little room you can have someone going to the restroom in privacy while someone else is doing their hair or brush their teeth without them ever physically being in the same place - this may not require an extension.  In some cases making your bathroom more efficient is as simple as updating everything and adding more storage solutions. Regardless of what is required, we can help to create a plan that is going to make your life easier.

A General Contractor Can Complete an Addition

If you have the space to add on to your home we encourage you to do so. We can give you a new master bathroom or guest bathroom that will make your morning and evening routine much easier. The additional space can really alleviate a lot of stress and complications that can come from juggling schedules.

If you want to learn about the options available for your bathroom call our office to speak with a general contractor today.

Add Southern Charm with Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans

Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans
Homeowners trust us for kitchen remodeling in New Orleans because we are focused on quality and high-design. We believe that the services we provide are more than that of a contractor. I understand that the kitchen is often the heart of your home and as such, you should love being in yours and using it. When we speak with a homeowner about the design that they want for their space we incorporate functionality items that make it easier to access what you need when you need it, make it easier to clean up after the job is done, and turn your kitchen into an all-purpose space or the kitchen of your chef's dreams. Regardless of what you need in your kitchen, we have the creative design ideas that can turn it into a truly beautiful space and one that is full of southern charm.

Ways to Add Southern Charm to Your Kitchen Remodeling in New Orleans

#1 Add Beadboard

We can add white beadboard to your ceiling and your exposed walls to give it southern charm that is reminiscent of a Mark Twain cottage. Entirely Southern and entirely charming, beadboard can transform your space and give it historic character and charm at the same time.

#2 Install a Ceiling Fan

Warm spring and fall weather and hot summers have made ceiling fans a fixture in the south. While air conditioning has made it unnecessary to have ceiling fans, if you are someone that likes the cool breeze that comes from a fan rather than the crisp breeze from an air conditioner, a ceiling fan is still going to bring you enjoyment. Additionally, it will add southern historic charm to your space well helping to push away the smells from dinner.

#3 Try Black and White

Give your kitchen some Big Easy sophistication with a black and white decor. This is an easy way to add southern charm to your kitchen that is simultaneously sophisticated and dramatic. When paired with natural wood tones your space can look as though it has been around for a hundred years while still entirely modern and sophisticated.

#4 Merge With the Outdoors

It wouldn't be New Orleans without outdoor dining. We can incorporate indoor-outdoor spaces into your home that make it easy for you to seamlessly move guests between the exterior and interior of your property. We have found that by simply opening up the kitchen it can turn your indoor space into one that serves your needs all year around regardless of whether your guests are dining in or out. Simple touches like windows that open up like an accordion can make an outdoor bar easily accessible by the chef.

#5 Add French Touches

There are certain ways that you can decorate your kitchen to bring touches of the old country. For example, we can add fleur de lys patterns to your backsplash. We can also add black and white tile floors which can create a dramatic look. However, if you prefer to go French country, we can certainly incorporate exposed brick that looks aged while incorporating things like butcher block countertops and distressed cabinetry that makes it appear as though you are cooking in an old French chateau. You can even get creative by turn old wine barrels into stools or bistro tables. These simple touches go a long way in adding New Orleans and southern charm to your kitchen space.
