Plan Your Winter Remodel Now

It may seem too early to think about a winter remodel. It’s difficult to think about snow and ice when we’re still spending weekends at the pool. But in terms of planning, scheduling, and sourcing materials, winter is just around the corner.

If you’re considering some home improvements this year, there are some projects that are ideal for cold winter months. Whether you are planning a complete overhaul or some smaller improvements, Roeser Home Remodeling can guide you through the process from design to completion.

Kitchen Remodeling

Kitchens are the most important room to most homes. We spend so much time in the kitchen. Whether you are staying in your home or planning to sell, a kitchen remodel is always a good investment.

Usually a kitchen remodel includes new cabinetry, flooring, countertops or other features. It can also include changing walls and opening up a room, or adding a window for more natural light. If you prefer materials like granite or marble, it might take some time to source these.

Do you want to completely redesign your space? Even if  you’re just looking for a cosmetic upgrade, beginning the planning process now is a great idea. There are so many choices when it comes to building materials. You’ll want some time to really think about your style choices before they become permanent.

Bathroom Remodeling

Bathroom remodels are another way to give a home a fresh new feel. If you want to transform your bathroom into a spa, or you want a more modern space for your family, you will need time to select the vanities, flooring, and fixtures.

As you begin your winter remodel planning, you can use our award-winning design staff at Roeser Home Remodeling, or you can research your own ideas. The Roeser team can then provide expert recommendations and work your ideas into a plan that will thrill you. If you like, we can show you what we’ve done in other homes. Take a look at our portfolio to see some of the remodeling projects we’ve completed around the St. Louis area.

Home Additions

Creating additional storage space is a common request. Have a look at our gallery and some of the projects we’ve done. We’ve created beautiful storage solutions and closets you’ll never want to leave. We’ve also added on porches and family rooms. We’ve moved walls to create new living spaces.  When considering additions, here are some of your remodel choices.

  • Sunroom Addition: Sunrooms allow you to enjoy the outdoor while being protected from outside elements.
  • Second-Story Addition: This will give you the ability to double the size of your home without exceeding the existing footprint.
  • Bump-Out Additions: Expand your kitchen, bathroom, or any other room.
  • Two-Story Extensions: If your home is already two-story and you want to extend the living space on the first and second floors.

Spa Bathroom

What do the words “spa bathroom” bring to mind? Soft music, low lighting and a massage or facial? Spas are places to rejuvenate our bodies, minds and spirits. We don’t always have time to go to a spa but we can get many of the same benefits at home when we create a serene space for ourselves.

Whether your bathroom is a standard 8’x5′ or something significantly larger, you can have a bathroom that radiates luxury. That’s because a spa bathroom is more than the amount of square footage you have. It’s about the types and quality of the materials you use and the design of your space.

Below are some ideas to consider when planning your next bathroom remodeling project. What and how much you choose to use will depend on your budget and space but many can be incorporated in any home.

Use Natural Materials

The overarching aesthetic of many spas is in their natural textures. Two of the best natural floor and wall options are ceramic or stone tiles. Grout seals the seams from moisture. Some tiles and grout are available that are designed to repel water.

Bamboo is popular for it’s hardwood floor look but there are concerns using it in a bathroom. Purchase a high quality bamboo and be sure to seal it well, otherwise, the grass fibers of the bamboo will absorb water. The fibers also are susceptible to water damage from excessive humidity over long periods of time.

Separate the Tub

Separating the tub or shower from the rest of the room will give you a more private place to soak away your cares. Consider using an alcove if there’s one in place already. Enclosing it with a half wall is another way to give the tub a separate space with making it feel confined. Even a 3-panel room divider can give you a place to retreat behind. 

Add Shower Amenities

If your bathroom has a shower only – or a shower/tub arrangement – and a divider just isn’t an option, choose an opaque sliding door or curtain. This will give you the privacy you crave. Adding a rain shower head will bring the feeling of showering in the rain indoors. If you have a walk-in shower, a teak stool gives you seating for accessible showering or just a place to hold shower supplies.

Opt for a Calming Color Palette

There’s a reason bathrooms walls are often painted blue or green. The natural elements of water, light, sky and air support wellbeing. Their colors fall in the cool spectrum and are relaxing and subtle. Choose paint, furnishings and textures in these colors. Add a pop of red or orange for a little excitement.

Choose the Unique

Spas often have interesting and unique furnishings such as sinks that are leaf-shaped or geometric mirrors. A natural stone sink makes use of a natural material if it isn’t an option for your flooring or walls. Plants bring the outdoors inside. Bamboo has an exotic look to it. Or choose a humidity-loving plant.

Set the Mood with Light and Scent

Good lighting is important for applying make-up and other personal care tasks. But lights installed on dimmers let you to set the mood for a long soak in your tub. Another way to soften the lighting so you can relax is with candles. Wall niches keep candles tucked out of the way of shower curtains. Or place a reed diffuser there with essential oils for aromatherapy. 

No wall niche? Create a tablescape with some of these same elements. Fill a tray with fine sand, tuck in a few scented candles with decorative pebbles or pieces of glass and you’ve added one more element to create your spa bathroom.

Kitchen Sink

A kitchen sink may not be your first thought when considering a kitchen remodel. Let’s face it, when someone walks into your kitchen, the sink is probably not the first thing they notice. If you have your kitchen remodeled, you may lavish over cabinetry, flooring or appliances. Rarely, do you give first thought to your kitchen sink.

Yet, in today’s modern kitchen remodel, with so many options, the kitchen sink deserves more than just an afterthought. It truly is the focal point of a modern Kitchen remodel and design. It is the necessary prep and clean up item that deserves not just great design and functionality, but also quality of material substance.

Choosing a Kitchen Sink

In every kitchen, the sink is, no doubt the most used item. It is used every day by multiple members of the household. Today’s kitchen remodels often include built-in items such as cutting boards, utensil trays, tea drawers, drying racks and colanders.

Therefore, kitchen design, including kitchen sinks have become just as popular as the other items associated with a kitchen remodel. With all the different designs, how do you decide which design is right for your kitchen remodel?

Roeser Home Remodeling Can Help

Roeser Home Remodeling can help you make the right decision regarding style and design. You want your kitchen sink to fit the style of your kitchen remodeling project, while still providing the best function and form. So, what are your options?

In the St. Louis area, while there may be overall popular kitchen remodel designs, including kitchen sinks, there are many designs that deserve your attention. What’s “popular” may not be entirely what you have in mind, or work for your lifestyle. Many homeowners are opting for larger single-basin sinks that make room for the clean up of bulky pots and pans. Often, these larger single-basin sinks are accompanied by smaller prep sinks that allow for easy clean-up of fruits and vegetables.

Kitchen Sink Design

There are several types of designs from which to choose. Let’s consider just a few.

Self-Rimming –  are durable, affordable and easy to clean. The most popular material for this sink is usually stainless steel.

Undermount – are installed below the countertop for a sleek seamless look. This type of kitchen sink design makes countertop clean up a breeze. This sink is usually made of enameled cast iron.

Apron – are designed with the country farmhouse look in mind. Historic, timeless, and designed to take you back to your roots but with a modern flair. These apron sinks come in porcelain, stainless steel, and copper. An added modern twist is also the incorporation of bamboo into the ageless apron sink giving it a new look and design aesthetic altogether.

Prep – were already mentioned regarding a supplement for a larger capacity bowl type sink. What wasn’t mentioned was that prep sinks come in a variety of shapes, styles and materials. Prep sinks are a great addition to your kitchen remodel regardless of the type of larger sink you decide upon. Think functional.

Integrated – are mainly designed to flow with the look of your countertops. Today’s modern integrated sinks are usually seen in conjunction with sleek modern styles of Quartz or Marble countertop materials. Many times, integrated sinks are considered high-end regarding kitchen beauty and functionality.

Island – have gained in popularity because you can add more functionality and space with this type of sink. Use of heat-resistant countertop materials and copper sink add to the overall beauty of the design.

Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis hopes this gives you some food for thought when it comes to choosing the best kitchen sink for your family and lifestyle. Function, beauty and style does not need to be compromised just because your kitchen sink is the most used item in your kitchen. Call us today and let Roeser Home Remodeling help you with options for the best kitchen sink to fit your needs and style in your kitchen home remodeling project.

Built-Ins

Built-ins could be the permanent solution for the space you need.

It’s true, all over the globe, when it comes to home design and home remodeling, there is a love affair with built-ins. Many question why. After all, you can’t

take anything built-in with you, if you decide to sell your home. Considering that fact alone makes many homeowners wonder what the fuss is all about.

Yet, once you fall in love with built-ins, it will be hard to ever live without them. The beautiful design to accommodate a built-in and the fact that built-ins add space to your home, make it a permanent solution for hard to find added storage areas.

Planning Your Built-ins

A built-in is defined as something built into the home that becomes a permanent attachment. If you are doing a home remodel to include built-in features, you want to make sure that the built-in meshes well and blends with your existing architectural aesthetic.

Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis can help you develop a well thought out plan of action. We will take you from idea, to plan, to final solution and design every step of the way. You may be unsure as to how to incorporate built-ins into your home remodel, rest assured that Roeser Home Remodeling will go over every minor detail with you. Since built-ins are a permanent solution for space and will stay with the home through every owner, what are some of the more desirable built-in options?

Bookshelves

The first thing that may come to mind when considering a built-in is bookshelves. Built-in open bookshelves, or bookshelves with drawers, either way, it is a winner. Adding drawers to the built-in bookshelves will give added space to hide away items you don’t want in clear view. It is also a great place to add a cabinet area to store games, craft or school supplies. Built-in bookshelves give a special place to display not just books, but those special mementos and collectible items.

Fireplace

With weather changing the way it does in St. Louis, Roeser Home Remodeling thinks it’s a great idea to add a built-in gas fireplace for those cool and chilly evenings we have. Not only will a built-in fireplace add ambience, but it is functional as well to add warmth and coziness to your family areas.

Window Seat

While thinking of warmth and coziness, how about a built-in window seat? This would be the perfect spot for reading or relaxing on a rainy St. Louis day. An added benefit to a built-in window seat would be to add underneath storage below the cushions. This would be a great spot to store rarely used items such as extra pillows or throws.

Clean Up Your Electronics

When designing your built-in space there is no limit as to what you can do. A perfect solution for extra space is to add a television entertainment area with built-in space to store electronics and charging stations along with routers and computer gear. It is also the perfect built-in space to store DVD’s and computer games.

Divide a Room

Built-in shelves can also be used as a room divider to provide some privacy in open design areas. You can incorporate built-ins for laundry rooms or mud rooms adding built-in coat and shoe racks. In home office areas, adding lofted shelving and cabinets would serve for easy organization and additional storage for office supplies.

Whatever your desire or need for built-in space, Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis can help with your home design project. Built-in designs can be a permanent solution for adding more space. Call us today and our design team can show you how built-ins can be beautiful and functional at the same time while providing you with additional space and storage for your home.

Bathrooms Are Personal

A bathroom is our own private space designed especially for our own personal care. It’s our sanctuary, if you will. It makes sense then, that when it comes to bathrooms and remodeling choices in bathroom design, personality is the first consideration.

Of course, you may have a vision of how you want your bathroom to look, but maybe it isn’t quite there yet. The best bathroom designs should be functional but also stylish. There should be balance but also some pizzazz, a little spark that says, ahhh…. now I can relax!

The Role of Color in Modern Design

Does color even play a factor when it comes to remodeling your home? In the home remodeling industry, talk about design functionality can be endless. We want our homes to be user friendly. Remodeling of your kitchen, bedroom, bathrooms, basement, or even your whole house requires a lot of thought and planning to achieve the desired effect.

Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis knows that a lot of, and sometimes months of design strategy, go into a home remodel project before the actual project begins. Many choices must be made by the homeowner, including color. Have you ever considered the role that color places when it comes to home remodeling?

Many studies have been conducted on the use of color in all aspects of a person’s life. Color affects a person’s behaviors, mood, thoughts. There are colors that make us happy or bring us down. Color has been proven to calm or excite. At times, color can trigger memories, good or bad, from past events. It is no different when it comes to home remodeling. In fact, every year there are predictions made as to the trending color in home design from Pantone. Designers eagerly await these predictions and incorporate these trendy colors into their home remodel and design projects.

Color of the Year

This year, 2018, the Pantone color of the year is Ultra violet. Here is what is said about it on the Pantone website, “Complex and contemplative, Ultra violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.” Sounds great, right?

Of course, Roeser Home Remodeling knows that in this industry, many more factors are considered besides color predictions when it comes to remodeling your own private space. In the Kirkwood and St. Louis area, many choose to add more natural light into their home remodel project. This too can create a mood for the homeowner. Allowing more natural light into a space can improve one’s overall health and mood. Yet, the role of color in everyday life cannot be denied.

Setting the Right Mood

Marketing and branding experts spend much money on the psychology of color and its role in influencing our emotions, moods, spending habits, stress levels, and perceptions. For instance, it is well documented that the color blue is calming, red energizes, yellow creates optimism, orange is a creative booster, and the list continues. The color trend for 2017 was “greenery” which typically denotes natural, organic, and eco-friendly which is indeed appealing when it comes to home remodeling. This is still a popular choice for many homeowners.

The truth of the matter is, we consider color trends because we want our renovations to be relevant and current. But what really counts is how you, the homeowner feels about it. Will we push a predicted color scheme just because we are told it’s the color of the year? Of course not. At Roeser Home Remodeling, our customers are the top priority. No matter what year or what color is popular, it is your home and we will do all we can to make your home remodel one that will invoke in you a sense of pride and success. Call us today and let us show you how adding more natural light and color to your home remodeling project can be accomplished.

What’s Cooking in Your Kitchen?

In today’s modern family, the kitchen serves many more purposes than food preparation and meals. Maybe we have pleasant memories of momma cooking in the kitchen. The smells of fried chicken, Sunday dinners and fresh baked bread can trigger wonderful memories family togetherness. We want to share those feelings and continue to make more memories for our families. While the kitchen of today is still built on the needs of family and functionality, the styles and purposes have transformed and evolved to meet today’s busy lifestyles.

When it comes to home remodeling, the kitchen is often the first place to start. In the St. Louis and Kirkwood areas, there are many beautiful homes that were built just long enough ago that doing a kitchen remodel just makes sense. Young families of today make this room the center point for daily activities and family bonding. A remodel can open-up an area and add more useable space.

Homeowners often hesitate to begin a remodel project, thinking it would disrupt the family routine.  Roeser Home Remodeling can put your mind at ease. There are many reasons why a remodel is the right choice for your family

Functionality is Key

Probably the most obvious reason for a remodel is that it has become outdated. Perhaps the functionality is compromised. Maybe the actual components and hardware are showing signs of wear and age. Correcting this would require  more than another coat of paint.

An updated kitchen adds value and marketability to your home. Even if you are planning on staying in your home, a remodel can put the value of your home where it needs to be. If considering a sale, this room is often of critical importance to buyers. Roeser Home Remodeling can offer a variety of styles and options for your remodeling project. Let us take your kitchen from boring and drab, to fresh and exciting.

Energy savings is important to homeowners, for economical and environmental reasons. A kitchen remodel can include modern energy efficient appliances, and natural lighting to save on electricity. There are many energy saving options, like smart appliances, solar and skylights to let in more natural sunlight. All will save you money and stress to the environment.

A Kitchen Remodel Can Change How You Live

A remodel can add to the overall health of your family. A third of home-owners report they are leading healthier lifestyles after having their kitchen updated, according to Houzz Kitchen Trends Study 2017. This study showed homeowners having more family time, less take-out meals, more entertaining, and healthier eating habits. A remodel can make everyone in the family happier and excited about spending more time together. Features like a breakfast bar or island, more counter space, and built in appliances can encourage family members to linger. Whatever the motivation for a remodel, Roeser Home Remodeling can turn your dreams into reality. Call us today for a kitchen remodel consultation.

Is Your Home Having a Midlife Crisis?

How to Know When It’s Time to Intervene

When it comes to remodeling your kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, or your whole house, Roeser Home Remodeling knows that sometimes it’s hard to figure out when and where to start. Many neighborhoods in St. Louis and the Kirkwood area have classic design homes that have been standing for years. No doubt you have come to love your neighborhood and have gotten comfortable in your home. Our homes become our havens, our places of refuge. For many homeowners, change comes with uncertainty and a level of apprehension. So, how do we know when our home is having a midlife crisis and decide that it’s time to intervene?

The first obvious sign that your home is having a midlife crisis are age and wear. Look around your home. Notice your cabinets, appliances, flooring, and faucets. Are they old and in need of repair or replacement? Do they look out of date and drab? What about your countertops? Are they cracking or peeling? Of course, the need for a home remodel is usually more important than just cosmetics. What is behind the walls? Are the water pipes showing signs of wear? Is the electrical system and design of your home up to current code? There are many factors to consider. So, how do we know when it’s time to intervene and begin the process of remodeling our home?

One suggestion that has been helpful to homeowners is to make a checklist. A checklist can be helpful in several ways. It can identify what you love about your home and what you would want to change. It also can give you answers as to why. Why do you need more closet space? Why do you need an additional bathroom or bedrooms? The answers to the “why” questions can put your mind at ease and help you determine what you want to get out of your home remodeling project.

Let’s consider a few reasons why a homeowner would decide it’s time to start a remodeling project.

More Space

One of the number one reasons homeowners begin to consider remodeling their home is the fact that they need more space. You come to realize that you have just outgrown your home! Maybe it was just the two of you at first, then your family began to grow. As time went on, you may have added children and pets to your cozy home, yet you need something different, something that fits your growing family better and gives everyone more room. Roeser Home Remodeling can help you envision an open floor plan, perhaps revolving around the kitchen or living areas adding an easier flow to the home. Larger family dinners, homework space, quiet conversations and general family time together may be easier with open floor plan areas that give you more space. More people in the family can also mean that you now may need more closet space, counter space, cabinet space, and overall floor space for your family. It could be that the number of bedrooms and bathrooms may no longer be adequate. Or maybe you want to be able to entertain more. An added deck, patio or outside living area may be exactly what fits your need. Roeser Home Remodeling can help you make an evaluation of, not only cost, but what areas of remodeling can best fit your family.

Efficiency

Depending on the age of your home, or even to stay on top of current trends many homeowners decide its time to remodel to save energy. Technological advances in today’s home products are designed to save you time and money. New energy efficient kitchen appliances, insulated windows, furnace, air conditioning, water heaters, added insulation and roofing solar panels are of a few of the upgrades that you can decide to install in your home remodeling project.

Aesthetics

Many homeowners decide its time for an intervention in their home simply because the age or lay-out is out of date and drab. Perhaps you love the area, the neighborhood, and the convenience of where you live, but you want a more stream line or comfortable feel to your home. You want your home aesthetic to fit who you are in the life you live. Roeser Home Remodeling stays on top of current trends in the home remodeling industry as an award-winning design company, we can take your vision and turn it into the home of your dreams.

These are just a few of the possible reasons why your home might be experiencing a midlife crisis and need a home remodeling intervention. No doubt you can think of many more personal reasons why now is the time to make the decision to remodel your home. Roeser Home Remodeling can help you every step of the way. Let us show you how we take the guess work out of the home remodeling process and how beautiful your home can be.

Home Remodeling is Not a Game of Chance

If Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis told you that your home remodeling project is not a game of chance, would you believe us? Of course, you would. Reputable home remodeling companies do not leave your project to chance. There are certain steps that a home remodeling company takes to ensure the success of your home remodeling or home addition projects.

The beginning of the home remodeling project starts with budget. The homeowner should have a realistic budget in mind, not some phantom, obscure idea that just because you want it, you can leave the budget to chance and somehow, even magically, your project will be exactly like your home remodel vision. Life is not like that, and neither is your home remodel project. It takes various aspects of planning, designing, and a realistic approach to what you want versus what your budget is.

Pantser or Planner? How to Keep Ahead of the Times Roeser Home Remodeling St. Louis

Pantser or Planner? How to Keep Ahead of the Times
