Open-Up Your Floorplan
When renovating a small home, every square foot matters. We will walk with you through your home and discuss how the square footage can be reimagined. Our goal is to eliminate dead space and design a layout that opens-up your floor plan.
By removing non-bearing walls, your home is transformed almost instantly. This gives the interior a more spacious feel and uncovers areas that may have been overlooked before. Furthermore, opening-up the interior is a popular choice for renovations in the Bay Area and provides a nice return on your investment.
Maximize Storage Space
The lack of storage space in smaller homes is a chief complaint we hear from homeowners. At Spaces Home Remodeling our designers provide creative solutions, including built-in storage options, that can be customized to fit your current needs, but also built with future needs in mind.
We can add storage to your kitchen, bathrooms, hallway, bedrooms, or even the garage. Whatever you want to stow, tuck away, or organize we’ve got you covered. Our solutions aim to optimize your space while staying true to your personal style and your home’s aesthetic.
We are proud of the work we do at Spaces Home Remodeling. For us, it isn’t about building houses, but creating homes. Our design-build approach also makes us unique in that our team of designers, architects, engineers, and builders collaborate from concept to construction.
From new builds to renovations, we are in the business of beautifying spaces and can not wait to get started on your next project.
