Love Your Home Again With These Renovation Ideas

The past year was unprecedented and for many of us. With all the new guidelines that meant spending more time at home than we’re used to. The shift to working from home, or having our kids home 24/7 has blurred the lines between where we eat, sleep, work, and play. If you feel like you’ve lost control of your diet, exercise routine, sleep schedule, or sanity, it’s time to take control back - and it all starts with a home renovation with an expert General Contracting Service.

Calgary Home Office Renovations

For many, the dining or kitchen table has become the unofficial office of the house. A long, sturdy table meant for family and friends to gather over a delicious meal is the perfect setup for your assortment of laptops, monitors, mouses, and cables. Not to mention the graveyard of mugs and plates that builds up over the day.

But, you may begin to notice that the proximity to the kitchen, which at first you loved, makes it easier to indulge all day. Instead of buying a whole new wardrobe, kill two birds with one stone and create a new and improved office space in your home with a small home renovation.

Your Skilled Help Now general contractor can bring all of your home office improvements to reality by:

  • Creating a designated built in desk and chair in a separate area of your home
  • Building a new home office space in a different room
  • Knock down a wall to connect two small rooms or widen a room by a few inches
  • Including new custom shelving and table to fit all of your home office needs

A great general contractor and customer service team will help you explore all your renovation options and to make your home office as functional as possible so you can begin to take back control of your days.

Upgrade Where You Sleep

When the busyness of your life has been weathered for the day and it’s finally time to sleep, you want the space to be as comfortable and serene as possible. A bedroom can be dismissed as just a place to lay your head but curating a peaceful atmosphere can have a huge effect on the insomnia this pandemic has imparted. Some ideas to consider to improve your sleep habits through a bedroom renovation are:

  • ‚ÄčBlackout blinds:A favourite of those sensitive to light, blackout blinds help keep your room darker for longer and let you get in those few extra hours of shuteye.
  • Heated floors:The winter months can be bone-chilling and heated floors not only add a level of luxury to your bedroom but can increase your comfort while going to sleep or waking up in the morning by making the Canadian winter temperatures less of a shock.
  • Lighting:Light stimulates our senses and how we interact with it before we sleep can affect our sleep habits. Instead of the standard on/off switch on a ceiling light, try a dimmer switch so you can control the brightness. Having various lighting options like a bedside lamp or reading light will also allow you to gradually decrease the ambient light as you wind down.
  • New paint job:The colour of a room can affect your mood. If you prefer a calmer atmosphere vs a statement-making bedroom, opt for neutral tones or soft blues, greys, yellows, and greens to promote a comforting environment. Either way, our experienced painting team will make your space look amazing!
