Our Top 7 Tips for Styling a Smaller Bathroom

July 31, 2015 | 0 Comments »

While we complete many master bathroom remodeling projects, we also complete many smaller bathroom remodeling projects. Technically, a bathroom with a shower but no tub is called a three-quarter bath. Many homeowners opt for three-quarter baths, omitting the tub, to give them room for other amenities like rain showers or large vanities. Half baths (also called powder rooms) require little space and typically only consist of a toilet, sink and vanity. Powder rooms range from being completely utilitarian spaces to elegant and decorative for guests. Here are 7 tips for styling a smaller bathroom in your Northern Virginia home.

Home Additions: Should I Build Up or Out?

June 04, 2015 | 0 Comments »

Many of the homes in Northern VA were built decades ago when common home layouts and sizes were much different. If you are finding that you don’t have enough functional living space in your home, it might be time to add an addition. This space can include a guest room, a master suite, a playroom, a family room, or whatever is most advantageous to for your family. By building up (adding a second story) or out (a ground floor addition), you’ll add a lot of new space to your home.

Before starting, here are some considerations to keep in mind:

  3. How feasible is it to make the changes you’d like to make? Would you need to make significant changes to your home in order to do so?
  4. What are you comfortable spending on this project?
