Design Solution: Fireplace Renovation

April 12, 2013

Built-In Entertainment CenterA home remodel is a great time to think about your house’s design. Do the rooms work for you? What elements can you change to better suit your lifestyle? Repurposing a room is certainly one option to consider, but sometimes the area just needs to be updated with something like a fireplace renovation.

From Fireplace to Built-In Entertainment Center

In some cases (like our Los Gatos home remodel), removing the fireplace to create more space is a good option. In other instances replacing it is an even better option. Our Saratoga remodeling project is a fantastic example of a fireplace renovation that turned into a built-in entertainment center. This is one design change that made the room a better fit for the homeowners.

Considering Design Changes

Whether you’re interested in a fireplace renovation, built-in entertainment center or something else entirely, there are a few questions to ask yourself when contemplating a design change. Of course, working with a firm like CAGE Design Build will help you weigh your options, but starting to think about them now will make the process even smoother:

  1. What do you use the area for now? How will that change with a new design?
  2. What type of budget do you have available for a home remodel?
  3. What timeline do you have in mind? When do you expect the home remodel to be finished?
  4. What materials do you want to use? Is this a good time to make your home more eco-friendly?
  5. How long do you plan to live in your home? Do you need to plan for potential physical limitations down the road?
