Remodeling Your Alaskan Home for Comfort


Where’s the one place you spend more time than anywhere else? For most Alaskans, it’s their home. It’s your place to relax and recharge, but if you don't enjoy your home, it might be time to consider remodeling. For many homeowners, this can sound overwhelming, but an experienced contractor can make the planning stages enjoyable and the execution seamless. So, whether it’s a single room update or a whole new addition, consider the following tips to ensure your remodeling project brings long term comfort and satisfaction for you and your family.

Create a Master Remodeling Plan

Before embarking on a remodeling project, it’s crucial to create a master plan that details all your desired changes. This plan should encompass both the interior and exterior of your home and any changes to the layout or functionality. Once the master plan is in place, you’ll have the added benefit of seeing the total project cost and timeline from the beginning to end. A clear vision from the start will ensure your home turns into the perfect living space both indoors and out.


Blend the Interior and Exterior Design and Style

Your home should be a reflection of your personality and compliment your lifestyle. More often than not, we see people getting overwhelmed with the design and style they want in their homes and settling for generic strategies. So before beginning any remodeling project, ask yourself: What is my style? Cozy, traditional, modern, minimalist, farmhouse, country cottage, new American, or contemporary? Don’t be afraid to get creative – ask yourself what you can do to make the flow between the indoor and outdoor living space ideal for you and your family.


Think Appearance, Durability and Value

There are many decisions to make in the remodeling process, and one of those is what materials to use. There are two options in this category: high-quality materials that offer many long-term benefits or low-quality materials available at a lower upfront cost. It may be tempting to go with the budget friendly options, but keep in mind high-quality materials will require fewer repairs and cost less in maintenance in the future. We recommend discussing this with your contractor as it will impact the appearance, durability and value of your home for years to come.
