Signs Your Eastside Home May Benefit from a Whole-House Remodel

does your eastside home need a whole-house remodel

We love working with clients in the Eastside; they adore their neighborhoods, the beautiful views, and the communities in which they live. And because living in the Eastside is so fabulous, it’s sometimes easy to overlook signs that your home is in need of a whole-house remodel. But for homeowners who wish to stay in their neighborhoods and still have a functional home as their lives and lifestyles change, remodeling can be the answer. When you find yourself looking around your home and wondering what it would be like to change something to satisfy the new you (a wall, paint color, a chandelier), it’s time to take a step forward and contact us.

How Do I Know If I Need a Whole-House Remodel?

  • Do you spend more time searching for kitchen remodeling ideas than you do cooking dinner?
  • Do you spend a lot of time daydreaming while scrolling Pinterest, HGTV, Better Homes & Gardens, or Architectural Digest ?
  • Do the tiny homes seem lighter and less cramped than your home?
  • Have you been resisting hosting parties for your friends and family?
  • Does the thought of having your kids’ friends over make you cringe?

It’s time to call Nip Tuck to start planning your whole-house, kitchen, or bathroom remodel when

  • You are frustrated with your home’s outdated designs and features
  • Your space feels dark, cramped, or enclosed
  • The home lacks modern functionality
  • You’re uncomfortable entertaining or having guests
  • Your home doesn’t have any of the modern energy-efficient features that help save money on utilities

How Whole-House Remodeling Can Give Your Eastside Home New Life

As families grow and lifestyles change, the need for more functional and open living areas becomes apparent. If you find yourself constantly tripping over furniture or struggling to entertain guests in your cramped living room, a whole-house remodel can help you create the open-concept floor plan you desire.

Starting with your ideas, our interior designers develop a footprint of your home to help visualize the layout of your remodel. Once approved, we move through the process, meeting with you at private showrooms and looking through finishing fixtures and materials, as you select the ones that you love.

Once the design is finished, our team handles all of the day-to-day work and details to deliver your ideal home in the following months. Our team can help bring your vision to life by designing the new space, removing walls and reconfiguring the layout to maximize space, and then creating a more inviting and spacious environment.

  • Visible mold and bacterial growth on surfaces
  • Musty or “off” odors
  • Visible water or mold stains on walls, ceilings, window frames, or floors; excessive dust, even after cleaning
  • Stale, stuffy, or dry air
  • Temperature of the house always feels wrong
  • Drafts
  • Smells or odors when the heat or A/C blower comes on
  • Swollen wood or other structural damage
  • Dampness

Our team can address any of these issues with improved ventilation, better insulation, and materials specifically designed for the spaces in which they are used (such as mold-resistant paint in bathrooms).

Benefits of a Whole-House Remodel for Your Eastside Home

Whether you want to create a home office, a dedicated playroom for your kids, or a luxurious primary suite, a whole-house remodel allows you to design your home to perfectly suit your family’s unique requirements – all while increasing the value of your home.
