Top Ten Remodeling Wishes

Jo Koenig

‘Tis the season we do our best to make everyone’s dreams come true. But during the holidays many of us find it difficult to fully realize those dreams in our current living spaces.  We begin imagining how much better it could be if only. . .

As we work with homeowners designing and remodeling their homes, we get to hear a lot about “if only”.  So we decided to compile a list of our client’s TOP TEN REMODELING WISHES. See if some of these holiday wishes match your own.

  1. If only . . . we had a fresh and pretty guest bathroom.
  2. If only . . . our kitchen wasn’t closed off from the rest of the house, maybe we could enjoy our guests while we made dinner preparations.
  3. If only . . . our kitchen was functional and drop dead gorgeous–all those hours of cooking would be a lot more fun.
  4. If only . . . we had an extra bedrom for our guests . . .
  5. . . . and a extra bathroom!
  6. If only . . . we had an attached but not too attached back yard family room where the teenagers could hang out.
  7. If only . . . the empty attic space could be turned into a really cool home office/man cave.
  8. If only . . . the master bathroom was a relaxing retreat . . . with heated tile floors . . . mmmmmmm.
  9. If only . . . we had storage space for all our stuff.
  10. If only . . . we had more room . . . we NEED more room!

Try imagining those dreams fulfilled and how much you’d enjoy the benefits all year long, not just during the holiday season. Take the next step and explore the “what if’s”:

  • What if your home could be vastly improved by implementing a few key changes?
  • What if those changes were within your budget?
  • What if those changes could be accomplished by this time next year?

From the initial meeting with Beth to the closeout visit, working with C&R was a pleasure. Beth listened, offered advice, and was willing to work within our budget. Every worker who came to our home was punctual, courteous, and cleaned up each day. We truly could not have asked for a better experience!

Excellent service and workmanship. We could not be happier with our kitchen remodel. Beth helped design the perfect kitchen and our Lead Carpenter completed the work in a timely and professional manner. Everyone we came in contact with at C&R was great—we are already working with them on a second project!
