Continuity: The Secret to a Successful Remodel

We could do everything right with a kitchen or bath remodel down to the last hinge, but we still would not end up with a happy homeowner if we didn’t consider continuity. Imagine your own kitchen, dining room, and living room. Whether those three rooms are separate or more of an open space, the rooms connect in a number of ways. Shared walls and moldings, shared carpet or flooring, millwork, paint colors: They all matter, and they all provide continuity.

What Is Continuity?

Continuity is the way in which the home flows from one room to another – the way it feels as if the entire home was planned to look the way it does. Without considering continuity, you may end up with a perfect room that sticks out like a sore thumb. Picture how it would feel to walk into your home and have a spectacularly redesigned kitchen that you can’t wait to show off, but all of the new work stops right at the kitchen boundary and doesn’t carry through to the dining room or living room. It might be jarring. It might feel disjointed.

Creating Flow

To avoid that disjointed feeling, part of our planning process is to consider the flow of your home. How does one room connect to the next? Are there shared walls that will need to be painted the same color? Are we changing out things, such as outlet covers, that need to match throughout the home? If we’re changing out carpet in the dining room, does that carry into the living room, too?

No Matter Your Why for Remodeling, Continuity Should Be Part of the How

One of the biggest reasons that homeowners decide to remodel is because the designs of their homes no longer function the way they need them to. Your home may be outdated and embarrassing for you to host parties in. It may have always been less than what you wanted, and while you can finally afford the home of your dreams, you love your neighborhood and want to create your perfect space right where you are. You may want to combine a couple of rooms into a grand master suite now that your kids have all grown and moved on. Whatever the reason you decide to remodel, continuity is such an important part of the planning process. Envisioning not just your dream kitchen but how that kitchen connects to every other room it touches is important.

And remember: No matter what you're trying to accomplish with your home remodeling project, one of the factors you should consider in every room is storage. The more practical storage we can build into your project, the less cluttered your home will feel. Learn more about our process for helping you complete your project. Contact us.
