Your Home Project: Naperville Remodeling With An Eye To The Future
If you’re ready to start a Naperville remodeling project, you’re probably thinking updating the style and address some functional deficit in your home’s current configuration. You can ensure that you get the best value possible from that remodeling investment by designing your project so that it addresses your needs and desires for today, and offers the flexibility to provide for your future need, as well. No matter what stage of life you’re in, there will always be another stage, for you, your children, or the future buyers, and if you plan well now, your home will be ready for those future stages.
- Young Families – If your family is young, or growing, you may want to consider building a nursery next to the master bedroom for convenience today and utility later on. Once your children or grandchildren outgrow the nursery, it can be used as a dressing room or walk-in closet, an exercise or hobby room, or a private study. An open floor plan in the common areas makes it easier to keep an eye on the kids while affording them more freedom to roam, and it’s also the ideal set-up for entertaining your guests or your kids’ guests. Build the basement with a built-in pit for foam blocks or balls, and when the kids outgrow it, you’ve got the framework for a sunken seating area.
- Teens – You may have teenagers today, or they may be in your future, so think about creating a space where your teens can have their friends over and enjoy hanging out together without disrupting the rest of the household. Today’s kid-friendly basement could be converted to tomorrow’s teen lounge, game room, or home theater without further remodeling, if you plan ahead.
- Multi-Generation Living – More and more families are finding that multi-generational living offers good care and support for elder parents while young adults may need to move home after college until they establish a career. Think about including a wheelchair-accessible path through your home and, when you remodel the guest bath, create a design that could be wheelchair accessible without having to remodel again. If you’re remodeling or adding bedrooms, consider adding an en suite bathroom, which would offer privacy and convenience for either elderly household members of young adults who want more privacy.
- Empty-Nesters – When all the kids grow up and move out, you’ll have more room to set up features you can enjoy as adults. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of a sewing room, or a private pub in the basement, or guest suite so your out-of-town friends can come visit for a month. Whatever you dream of doing in your home after the kids move out, don’t miss an opportunity to prepare for that as you remodel various parts of your home.
