Don’t hide your stunning kitchen backsplash behind a bunch of utensils or food storage containers any longer! Get organized with these simple tips:

1. Recycle Old Magazines and Catalogs

Gather all the loose magazines and catalogs floating free around your home and stack them into a neat pile. Then, go through them one by one, setting aside issues you still want to read, and recycle the rest.

2. Declutter the Entryway

You know that one spot or table where you drop everything off as you come home? Give it a little TLC. Put any loose change, junk mail, or other items that may have ended up there in their right place.

3. Organize Your Food Storage

Open up your Tupperware drawer and pull everything out. Match up each container with its lid and toss any leftovers. Next, stack everything up neatly with matching partners located nearby so everything is easy to grab. If you find yourself wishing your kitchen cabinets themselves are easier to organize, it may be time to consider a kitchen renovation.

4. Relocate Those Utensils

The jar of utensils usually located by the stove can get cluttered easily and begin to hide some of the most beautiful aspects of the kitchen. Take everything out of the jar and move what you don’t use very often to a nearby drawer. Put the few utensils you do use frequently back in the jar and allow your backsplash and countertops to shine once again.

5. Inventory Your Bathroom & Laundry Supplies

Start by pulling all of the products out of your shower and place them on the sink. Recycle the empty bottles and move infrequently used items to a drawer or cabinet. Not enough cabinet storage space? This could be another sign you could use a home renovation! More cabinet space can help hide the clutter and make your bathroom look its best.

Next, check your laundry room for any empty bottles and place those in the recycling bin. Put any other items where they belong. Does your laundry room still look cluttered? Additional shelving, cabinetry or sink space could help. Look into home renovation options for these frequently used rooms to create a better looking, more efficient home.

These are just a few of the many things you can do to help declutter your home this spring! If you find during your spring cleaning you could use something more permanent, like a home renovation; give us a call at Titus Contracting!

Add a Personal Touch with Customization
Make your living space a reflection of your personality with unique, personal touches. These can be anything from the detailing on your step’s treads and risers, to custom textured painting or an interesting, detailed tile feature, to a one of a kind light fixture, or even a creative spin on an entire room. It doesn’t have to be completely one-of-a-kind, just something that adds your personality to the room.

Eco-Friendly & Connected
From energy-efficient appliances and eco-friendly materials and supplies, many homeowners have put this trend at the top of their list. It may not be the most glamorous, but it is certainly the most practical. Energy efficiency not only helps save the environment, but can help save some money as well. Tech advances are also one remodeling trend that’s particularly helpful. They can save you money while adding some flexibility and convenience to your daily life. Control your home’s lighting remotely, get daily reminders, or have your alarm system let you know if it needs new batteries. When it comes to tech in the home, the possibilities are endless!

Basement (Or Attic) Oasis
Everyone has heard about the man cave. But recently, the man cave has turned into an oasis for the whole family. One of today’s top trends in home renovation includes turning the basement or attic into a much needed escape. It can be an extra guest bedroom, home office, entertainment room or hobby room. Achieve a whole new room to enjoy or entertain in without the need for an addition.

Open Floor Plans
Open floor plans for the living area and kitchens in particular are a continuing trend in the world of home renovation. There are many advantages to a more open living space, such as connecting more easily with family and allowing light to spread into more areas of the home.

6 Tips for Creating the Perfect Living Space

Posted by & filed under Home Remodeling.

When it comes to our homes, most of us want to have a space that truly shows off who we are. It may reflect our line of work, our hobbies, or perhaps our family heritage, but in some way or another, as homeowners, we like to put our personalized touch on our home. It is these personal touches in décor, design, and even architecture that make the walls of the house become a space we call home.

If you are new to design or perhaps have recently gotten the urge to customize your home, it can be somewhat overwhelming – but don’t panic. Rather, take a few minutes to bring in some design pros, as well as a professional contractor to help you determine what can – or cannot – be done with your space. Consulting with them, you can develop a plan based on the structural capabilities of your home, as well as its design potential.

St Paul Home Remodeling

For home remodeling in St Paul, you can count on Titus Contracting. We can help with both the design and implementation of the project. As you begin the process of creating that perfect living space, here are some ideas and tips to consider:

  1. Plan the job thoroughly. This is truly the most important part of the process. Pay close attention to what the contractor tells you is possible with your space. Just because you want to take out a wall between the office and living room, it doesn’t mean you can, structurally. Once you know what structural changes can realistically be made, it is safe to move ahead.
  2. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. Consider having custom bookshelves, cabinetry, furniture, or woodworking included to show off your style. There are many ways to put a fresh spin on a traditional space.
  3. Bring the outside in. Talk to us about adding a large picture window in a room that might be a bit too dark otherwise. Have a decorative window seat built, complete with shelving or a hidden storage area, and you now have extra seating, plus more light, and a beautiful way to showcase your style.
  4. The kitchen’s the heart of a home. For many families, the kitchen is where the day begins and ends, so why not show off your personality with custom cabinetry? Whether it is with unique wood designs, inset shelving, a custom-built table, bar or workspace, stone countertops, an unconventional paint pattern, or other features, the kitchen is a great space to show off your style and heritage.
  5. Sleep well. No home makeover would be complete without taking time to design bedrooms that encourage rest and rejuvenation. You can add a custom designed walk-in closet, a hidden alcove for unwinding, or another special element that invites you in. Our contractors can help you create a getaway in home that caters to your every need.
  6. It’s a wash. Are you ready to stop thinking of your bathroom as just a necessary space in the home? We can turn your basic bathroom into a home spa with custom cabinetry and counters, textured finishes, spa elements, and more. All you have to do for your spa retreat is leave your cell phone behind and let yourself slip away into relaxation.

Designing a living space that is all about you doesn’t have to be on your “someday” list. It can be done now!
