Remodeling Projects to Satisfy Multiple Family Members

When choosing elements for a San Diego remodeling project, space, comfort and convenience are frequently at the top of a homeowner’s priority list. Making changes can range from adding on extra space for an in-law suite to creating a large kitchen with plenty of space for modern appliances. The goal in the end is often to have a comfortable space that is pleasing to everyone in the house. Hiring a professional remodeling company to handle the work makes it likely to find a compromise among different household members that have diverging interests.  

In-Law Suites
Many of today’s families are combining more than two generations under one roof. With Baby Boomers nearing retirement age and a growing group of seniors resisting assisted living facilities, the in-law suite addition makes sense for many homeowners. It allows parents and adult children with kids of their own the space they need and the privacy they crave.

In-law suites typically have a kitchen, bath, bedroom and living room space that is a separate wing from the rest of the house. An interior entrance serves as a bridge or doorway from one wing to the next. An exterior entrance on the home addition enables residents to come and go as they please. Depending on mobility and other issues, a remodeling contractor can help create a layout that will fit everyone’s needs in keeping with their wishes. Items such as a shared kitchen or an accessible ramp between the two parts of the home are also possibilities.

Having a kitchen space that’s enjoyable to cook in is a dream of many homeowners. Plenty of space to chop vegetables, knead bread and bake cookies can completely change a household’s eating habits. State-of-the-art appliances are another consideration for the younger cook who leans toward the instant gratification of convection ovens and ranges that don’t need to pre-heat over older and more traditional kitchen appliances.
Today’s homeowners with growing families need plenty of cabinet space to store groceries. In households where there are different dietary restrictions for various members of the house, the need for storage space and cabinets is becoming even more prominent. In a San Diego kitchen remodeling project, for example, there might be three generations of family in the home. Baby food, foods high in protein, low in sugar and low in cholesterol might be on the menu for different family members. A remodeling contractor can find a way to meet all of these needs.

One solution might be to create an island in the center of the kitchen that has a natural stone countertop space on top with a pull-out butcher’s block section and extra storage space underneath. A custom-designed area at the end could make it a suitable place for the kids to sit in the kitchen and have a snack when they get home from school.

No matter what type of remodel a San Diego homeowner considers, the remodeling contractor can likely create a design that everyone can live with.
