Winter is a great time to plan for Spring Renovations

Posted on November 29th, 2011 by

We are still enjoying the fall season, but winter will soon be at our door steps. Some homeowners prefer to just have the winter months to relax and enjoy a cup of cocoa or coffee while bundled up in a blanket. Even though you may not want to start renovations during winter, it is still a great season to start planning and designing for your big spring home improvement project.

Using the winter season to collect your thoughts, speak with an architect and home contractor, develop a concept and get your game plan together is a great way to start your spring renovation project. By taking these steps, when the warm weather does arrive, you will be well prepared to tackle the project.

If you live in the Kansas City area and need help starting your plans for a spring home renovation, contact Design Build Team located in Overland Park.

The Beauty of Under Stair Storage

Posted on November 18th, 2011 by

It’s a fact, you need storage in your home. Sometimes we can accumulate so much stuff that we can’t seem to find a place to put it all. Through the years, we’ve had to become more creative with our home storage solutions and one place that seems to get overlooked is under the stairs.

Many homeowners don’t realize that their under stair space can in fact be usable as a storage area. It is a great location because you can either create a hidden storage unit there, or if you would like, make it a visually pleasing storage space. The look should be designed according to your personal preferences and the style of your home. You want the storage to blend in nicely and make you happy at the same time.
