Create Living Areas That Transform How You Live
“It changed our lives.” We hear this repeatedly from clients who hired Encompass to remodel the main living areas of their homes.
A successful remodel of the main living areas of your home transforms how you live. From where the kids do their homework, where your family spends time together, what kinds of meals can be efficiently prepared, and whether you host the holiday feast in your home or not. Remodeling isn’t about the latest design trends, it is about changing how your family interacts and how much you use your home.
More and more families are choosing open living plans which allow people to interact more while each person still engages in their own activities. Parents cook in the kitchen while the kids play a game in front of the fire in the living room, all the while they are still together.
With living rooms, dining rooms and kitchens now adjoining with very little structural division between them, solid design becomes even more important. Subtle transitions between spaces such as columns, soffits and different flooring and lighting options create definition between the spaces and keep them from feeling like one large, uniform space. The styles of each room must complement each other while at the same time work to set each space apart.
Our design team is certified in interior, bath and kitchen design and is skilled in designing living spaces that work for your family today and well into the future as your needs change. Through our proven living area process, we create a plan for you that will last through many family transitions so you can renovate your home only once.
We help you consider all the aspects involved in designing efficient living areas in your home. What will people do in every area you create? Can you re-purpose an area you already have so you can build a smaller addition than you originally thought? Where will all your current furniture go and what new furniture will you need when the work is complete? Where should the “command center” be – where all of the mail, keys, electronics and homework land at the end of the day – and what is the best lighting for each specific living area? All of these questions and more help us design the perfect living areas for you, your family and your home.
