A great solution that features the best of outdoor living and indoor space is the sunroom.

When designed and built correctly, you will find that the sun room can be a top choice for your family and friends to gather, hang out, have fun and make great memories.

Here are 3 features that you will want to include in your sun room addition at your home:

1.  Cathedral ceiling – The high ceiling makes your Richmond sunroom awesome!  Especially when you install skylights to make the space pop with natural light or star gaze in the night hours.  The cathedral ceiling also makes the whole room look, feel and seem big.
2.  Windows – Don’t you love natural light?  To compliment the skylights in your cathedral ceilings you will love having brand new windows.  The really good news on windows is that today’s technology makes them very energy efficient for your sun room with low-e and argon gas features on the thick thermal glass.  With the right sun room design you can absolutely maximize the gorgeous effect of windows in your sun room.

3.  Lighting & Electrical – Be sure to install strategically placed outlets so you have the option to hang trendy lights or use a TV in your sun room.  You may want internet connections along with your cable connections.  Additionally you will certainly want a beautiful new ceiling fan to create nice air flow in your new space.  There are a lot of really great ceiling fan designs that work perfectly in sun rooms.

What key elements of sun rooms are important to you?

3 Key Components for Richmond Kitchen Renovations.

1.  Cabinets – Cabinets that have been exposed to water leakage or are just plain tired and worn out looking then it is now time to replace them. If your kitchen has a dysfunctional design, boxed into a corner or is missing an appliance then you are likely to want to redesign the kitchen and have a fresh start.

The great thing about starting over is having a clean slate. You can move the electrical and plumbing to accommodate your ideal layout efficiently. Have your Richmond kitchen remodeler take measurements of your kitchen space and do a professional layout that will have your appliances properly placed and maximize your storage to utilize the right-sized cabinets. There are plenty of options available for your kitchen cabinets. They have a wide variety of depths, sizes, pantry style, and others. If your house has high ceilings, you can take advantage of wall cabinets in 36″ or 42″. Don’t forget about the toe kick and crown moldings to let your cabinets shine!
Once you have established a design layout, you can choose your door and hardware design. They are available in a wide variety of colors and finishing. Also, make sure to include slow-closing doors and drawers and get some very nice and efficient inserts.

 

2.  Counter-tops:  The available options for countertops are always changing. You can customize what best suits your personal needs.

Countertop to consider:
Granite – The granite types are the most popular and continue to be the best-selling countertops. It has a super hard quality, incredible natural color and a solid surface that is perfect for your kitchen. It can be designed with a variety of edges including bevels, bull nose, ogee and double ogee. The lighter colored countertops can be stained which makes them not completely maintenance free. Beware of this fact but granite is a long-time favorite of many people!

Quartz – If you want a very durable with a solid surface countertop, quartz material may be something you’re looking for. They are typically made up of 95% quartz and 5% polymer. That precise combination is a great combined option for consumers. They comes in a wide-variety of patterns and colors, and has been gaining popularity for the past few years.
Beyond Granite and Quartz you can also easily explore other surfaces such as concrete counter tops and add a nice farm style sink if that is your preference.

 

3. Appliances – You don’t have to spend a million bucks to have an amazing looking kitchen. Add in stainless steel appliances to achieve the desired look. They don’t cost much more than the normal black or white appliances.

You can also upgrade your stainless appliances to the latest gourmet style appliances and make your kitchen a complete show-case that you will make you feel like a food-network star!
