Finding a home you’ll love for awhile is challenging. But finding your forever home is even more difficult. Do you choose the perfect location or the perfect house? For one Naperville couple ready to downsize, they chose option C, the perfect location, but also a house full of potential. Their goal? A complete home renovation to turn their Tudor style home into a timeless modern farmhouse.
Creating a welcoming atmosphere, as well as updating the look of the house, were high on the priority list. Outside, this began with letting go of the dated tudor paneling. Taking its place is an understated white farmhouse style, creating the perfect curb appeal.
On the inside it started with updating the dark, parquet style flooring to a classic bright hardwood, which adds depth to the space. Make your way through the house, and you’ll find paned half walls and windows welcoming you home. As you move through the space you’ll notice vaulted ceilings in addition to carefully selected rustic features.
Complete Home Renovation – More Space for Family & Friends
The new open family room/kitchen combo creates plenty of space for entertaining friends and family, but also relaxing in style. Natural wood countertops and warm fixtures make the breakfast bar the perfect place to start your morning. The beautiful exposed brick fireplace creates the ideal spot for an afternoon curled up by the warm fire.
A new back sun porch was the perfect addition to create more living space. A shaded respite from warm summer days, but also perfect for cooler days in the fall. All-around paned windows flood in natural light and give an indoor/outdoor feel. For the cooler months, a heated tile floor adds comfort and warmth to encourage gathering.
This home renovation wouldn’t be complete without special touches in each of the other rooms as well. Updated bedrooms and baths, a spacious laundry room, and a bright sitting room were just a few of the other requests on this couple’s list.
This couple had a dream of their perfect forever home, and Lellbach Builders helped turn that dream into reality.
