Is Your Home Stuck in the Past?

Let’s talk about feelings for a minute. How do you feel when you walk into your home? How do you feel if someone drops by unexpectedly to see you? Do you ever host parties or have guests over but wish your home was more welcoming or accommodating for larger groups – or worse, have you stopped having company because you’re embarrassed about your home? You’re not alone.

I Used to Love My Home – 20 Years Ago!

So often, a home that was purchased in the 80s or 90s that was the premiere property of its time now seems outdated. The colors are old. The design doesn’t function for the current situation your family is in. Maybe the basement was perfect when you had little kids and it was just a toy room, but now it would be a nice place for a pool table and wet bar. Or maybe the kids have moved out and the empty room would make a delightful walk-in closet for your new master suite.

I’m SO Isolated!

Some older home designs featured a kitchen that was closed off from the rest of the house. While this was a trend for some time, many of the homeowners we talk to don’t like feeling isolated in the kitchen, especially if they are entertaining. If you feel cut off from everyone in your home because you’re stuck in the kitchen preparing food while everyone else is out visiting in the living room, there are so many options for opening up the space and making it more inclusive.

Stop Feeling Bad about your Home and Start Dreaming

Pay attention the next time you have company to how you feel about your space. And take note of the parts of your house that you avoid or keep the door closed so you don’t have to think about them. Start thinking about what you would like to be able to do with your home, whether it’s to have more people around, create a workspace for a home office that delights you, or creates a getaway oasis in your master bedroom.

Don’t just take our word for it. Read this review from Melissa DiCenzo, Issaquah

“I had a very good experience with NIP Tuck remodeling who recently completed a kitchen remodel for me. The project was completed on time and on budget with a beautiful design. I had a fixed budget and April worked closely with me to make sure I made this, which was a high priority for my husband. The team ...and subcontractors were managed to a published/updated/ detailed project plan on builderstrend which was perfect for me. All of the team members were very easy to work with and communicate to. Most importantly, I love my new kitchen. The house was kept clean at all times; there was a single point of contact for all questions. The designer was very helpful advising through decision process. April was very good at resolving issues (there were very few) to my satisfaction...I think she really understands/lives the importance of customer satisfaction. I would certainly recommend this company happily.
