The kids are going back to school, summer is winding down, and we’re waking up with cooler air. The coming fall months have us thinking about updating our homes. We want warmth, comfort, and a place to relax. As you kick back this weekend, check out this complete home remodel, and get inspired with home renovation ideas.

This Naperville couple found a diamond in the rough. Their goal? To transform a classic Tudor-style with a farmhouse update, leaving no stone (or drywall) unturned.

New windows, cement siding and extended gable peaks were only the beginning. With a need for a bit more living space, they added a screened-in porch, with heated floors. This upgrade creates a comfortable space even in cooler spring and fall months.


Modern Home Renovation Ideas

A new dormer with banded windows brings plenty of natural light to the entry and sitting room. Custom beams, cabinetry and wainscoting welcome you inside. By removing interior walls and creating an open floor plan, the design options are endless.

The family area’s focal point is the existing fireplace and cathedral ceiling. With the new open floor plan the area transitions seamlessly to the kitchen. It creates the perfect area for relaxing or gathering with friends and family.

The trayed ceiling with custom beams, centered over the island, anchors the kitchen. White cabinets, Caesarstone counter tops, and black metal hardware are just a few of finishing touches in this kitchen remodel. A custom live edge walnut island top adds a unique touch to the space.

The mix of warm and cool color finishes creates an understated, comfortable environment. A custom greige blended stain finish on the white oak floor sets a neutral tone throughout the home.

This remodeling project was definitely worth the wait. The final result is a complete home transformation.
