5 Factors to Consider when Planning Your Summer Home Remodel

When remodeling your summer home, you want to consider certain factors before going ahead with the project. This guide will help you plan the ideal remodel and design for your dream summer getaway.

1.How Often Do You Wish To Have Company?

Making room for guests can help you determine important factors such as floor plan, the space you should set aside for eating areas, as well as outdoor entertaining. If you plan to have company quite often and especially if you plan to host for a larger crowd, renovating to open up living and entertaining areas will be a good choice. Since more guests mean more wear and tear on your floors, you may also consider installing durable flooring that is easy to clean. Stay away from carpeting as well as tile with light colored grout. One of the most durable flooring options out there is porcelain, which is stain resistant, and super tough, so it will last through years of parties and social events held at your home! 

2. Are You Planning on Having Property Maintenance While Away?

When you are not staying at your summer home, there are items that you must consider such as types of appliances that are installed, heating and cooling costs, in addition to landscaping maintenance. During renovations, you may consider installing appliances that favor energy efficiency vs. durability since usage will be lower than average, but some appliances such as the fridge and A/C may still be running 24/7. 

3. Don’t Neglect Home Security

Since you will not be inhabiting the home for many months out of the year, having modern security doors and shatter resistant windows will be your best choice. This will not only protect your home from intruders, but it will help to keep your property safe from wind damage and hail storms.

4. Incorporate A Fresh Design 

This is your getaway home! Some great advice is to make it as different as possible from your primary residence so that when you visit, you truly feel like you are on vacation! Why not use some bold colors, or a fun and unique layout, so that when you return home during the cooler months you really feel refreshed and energized. 

5. Incorporate A Space to Fill Your Needs

Perhaps you could benefit from a home office space, or a larger family room to keep the kids entertained. Either way, be sure to analyze your needs and make plans to really get the most out of your summer home. Some people convert spare rooms into a music room, craft room, or even a place for the pets to hang out. Another great idea is converting your garage into a room or remodel your basement to create a place that can be rented out for supplemental income. It is always a good idea to look at all of your options before beginning your renovation project, so that when it is complete, you have no regrets!
