Why Not Let Square One Home Improvements Multipurpose Your Laundry Room?

A multipurpose laundry room gives you a lot more.

Your laundry room can do so much more for you if it is designed to function as a multipurpose space. According to an article on houzz.com by Lisa Frederick, multipurpose laundry rooms are becoming increasingly popular in home renovations. Square One Home Improvements in Leesburg, VA can help you design your dream multipurpose laundry room. Check out these ideas on how to make the most out of your laundry room:

1. Mudroom

multipurpose laundry room – mudroom – Square One Home Improvements

A mudroom see’s a lot of dirt and dirty clothes because it’s the room where the outdoor elements are tracked inside. Having a washer and dryer located in a mudroom will make washing those wet gloves, stinky socks, and dirty jackets much easier.

2. Linen closet

Store towels and sheets in your laundry room. Not only will it be easier to fold but you also won’t have to walk far to put away those big, bulky items.

3. Office

There will be no more excuses for putting off doing the laundry because you are too busy with work if you have an office space in your laundry room. Just image all the emails you can reply to in between loads.

4. Potting Room

Laundry rooms already have plumbing pipes installed so why not put in a sink that would be perfect for watering plants and washing dirty garden tools. And when you are done digging in the soil you can just throw your muddy jeans in the wash.

5. Wrapping Station

Laundry rooms with long, flat counters not only are great for folding clothes but also provide a great surface for wrapping gifts.

6. Pantry

multipurpose laundry room – pantry – Square One Home Improvements

Combining a laundry room and pantry will give you a walk-in space near the heart of the home – the kitchen. Just remember not to store bleach and other cleaning supplies in the same cabinets as food items.

7. Pet Srea

Installing custom dog showers in laundry rooms is becoming increasingly popular among dog lovers. If you are still a pet owner but a custom shower station isn’t in your budget or you just don’t have the space, finding room to add a dog bed or litter box will still give your pets their own area.

Make an Impact with Molding and Trim

From baseboards to crown molding, these details add width, depth and height to a boring room

Square One Home Improvements is a PROVEN EXPERT in Crown Molding

Compare a smaller house to a more expansive one. A distinguishing characteristic is the attention paid to the molding. In larger, more expensive homes, buyers expect that moldings are thick and expansive.

One of the easiest ways to update a room in your home is to augment the moldings. It does not close off even a smaller room; instead, the added framing adds depth to the walls. And today, the recommendation is even to paint the trim the same color as the walls to give the space a unified look.

Baseboards

The baseboards are important because they are the visual foundation for a room. “I like a high baseboard, 8 to 10 inches, depending on the ceiling height,” says Doug Davis of Tracery Interiors. “Usually just a simple 1x topped with a little bit of base cap trim.”

Wood floors are the most popular pick for flooring these days, and adding shoe molding is recommended over quarter round because it is a bit higher and gives a better finish.

Casing

Casing is a popular element in well-finished homes because it frames openings that do not have doors. This type of trim wraps the walls from one side to the other for protection. It provides some definition of separation even in an open concept. The suggestion is to avoid casings that are too flat against the wall, because then they look cheap.

“For casing I usually go a little smaller than normal in width and deeper than normal in profile,” says Mr. Davis. “One of my favorites is 2.25 inches wide and 1.75 inches deep at the outside edge.” This style frames an opening in a really dramatic and unexpected way.

Crown Molding

Crown molding same color as walls - Square One Home Improvements

It is important to emphasize both the base as well as the ceiling of a room to clearly define the space. Simple but substantial crown moldings seem to be a must, but should not be overly

“At the top of the room, I like a big simple cove molding, 5 to 7 inches high, depending on the ceiling height,” says Mr. Davis. “Cove molding’s one big dramatic curve makes a much bolder statement and avoids the busyness a more complicated crown can add.”

Designer Sarah Jernigan also likes substantial crown molding. “Good proportions are easily magnified with strong, heavy moldings,” she says. “A simple 8-foot room can become much more dynamic with a simple but strong 5-inch crown molding and 5-inch base molding. By emphasizing the base and ceiling, the room has much more character and strength.”

Square One Home Improvements specializes in quality-built, custom crown moldings. Square One Home Improvements uses refined techniques to ensure superior workmanship and lasting results on crown molding installations. These include: use of backing for crown molding, glued joints, and use of premium calking. You can see many of these crown molding installations in Virginia homes today, totally intact and unblemished because of the superior workmanship when they were installed some 10 years ago.

Finishing Touches

One goal of crown moldings is to seem like a natural extension of the wall upwards. It can look disjointed when painted in a contrasting color. D. Davis suggests painting the moldings with the wall color, but in semi-gloss enamel finish, suggests Mr. Davis. He maintains that this trick makes a room feel larger (no white outlines drawing the eye here and there) and introduces a very sleek and sophisticated touch. But for very dark rooms, he suggests standard white for the crown molding to tie up the “package” with contrast.

Square One Home Improvements would like your opinion on this non-traditional painting recommendation.

Question: Do you favor painting the floor and ceiling moldings in a room the same color as the wall so as to cause the illusion of extending the wall upward and making the room look larger? Please give us your feedback today by commenting on this blog article!

Updating Tired Fixtures is a Great Bathroom Facelift!

Beautify Your Bathroom with Sinks and Faucets


Square One Home Improvements - Kitchen Remodeling Loudoun

Changing out dated components and fixtures can drastically improve your bathroom’s appeal.
Square One Home Improvements can help!

“Designed to Sell” designer Lisa LaPorta of hgtv.com recently shared her “Five Tips on Sinks and Faucets”.

bathroom-ceramic-bowls-Square-One

A bathroom makeover doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Just changing out dated fixtures, and adding a new sink can spruce up an old space.

Consider these recommendations:

    • 1. Think about your bathroom sink which is highly utilized everyday. It comes in different shapes and sizes and in different materials including china, glass, metal and stone, with china being the most common material. The color and style of the sink should match the bathtub and toilet. A pedestal sink is a cost effective option in a tight space and also gives the illusion of more floor space.

 

    • 2. Think about function. Faucets are all about function and water. They come in spreads from 4 inch to 8 inch, along with the single pull version. Lever handles are easier to use than knob handles. Designers advise to select your sink faucet first and then add the other components to the room.

 

    • 3. Find the right finish for the right faucet. Faucets come in all different finishes. available options include brushed nickel, oil rubbed bronze and brass.

 

    • 4. Understand your style because it is the vibe of your bathroom. You should consider the vibe of your bathroom along with how much you want to spend. The options are out there. You can spend anywhere from $50 to thousands of dollars on just a single faucet.

 

    • 5. Don’t be afraid to make your sink and faucet the focal point of the bathroom. Consider a vanity with a modern ceramic vessel bowl – but again, make sure it coordinates with the light fixtures.

 

With just some minor updates to your sinks and faucets, your bathroom can take on a whole new appeal!

Granite Going Out of Style?

Granite Going Out of Style —
Could it Be True?


Square One Home Improvements - Kitchen Remodeling Loudoun

Consider a Kitchen Facelift by Square One Home Improvements

Granite’s Reign Seems to be Declining

According to HomeAdvisor.com, granite’s 30-year reign as king of the countertops seems to be declining in favor of some other countertop alternatives, but it is still a solid choice. If you are remodeling your kitchen to sell, you may want to pay some attention to these popular alternatives.

Quartz Kitchen Countertops - Square One Home Improvements



Butcher Block Countertops on Kitchen Island

Take a Tour of the Alternatives

Square One Home Improvements can install any of these alternatives to quickly give your kitchen a brand new look. Here is a quick look at the top kitchen countertop contenders:

  1. Engineered Quartz.

    Quartz is easily granite’s top contender. Consider the beauty of white quartz in a modern kitchen. It is tougher than granite but is non-porous, so it does not need to be sealed. It is also much more durable. One downside is that it is largely uniform and does not offer the variation of different slabs.

  2. Wood.

    One cannot understate the beauty of wood. Many modern kitchen designs incorporate an island with a type of wood, like butcher block. However, wood is porous and must be sealed about once a month. It also is susceptible to damage from heat and moisture. On the other hand, if a wood countertop is damaged, it can be refinished.

  3. Soapstone.

    Soapstone is a natural quarried stone that comes in grays and green-blacks. It has some pros and cons that should be considered. While it is non-porous and so resistant to stains, it is a softer stone which means it is susceptible to scratching and deep indentations. The light gray version will likely darken over time. Another interesting consideration is that there will be a seam if your countertop is longer than seven feet.

  4. Concrete.

    Concrete kitchen countertops first came on the scene in the 1980’s, and historically, concrete is prone to chips and cracks. But they have improved since that time. Modern precast concrete kitchen countertops are available in a variety of colors, and are now strong and heat-resistant. Concrete countertops can be sealed to prevent staining.

  5. Stainless Steel.

    Restaurants install stainless steel countertops primarily because bacteria are unable to thrive in them. They are also heat-, rust-, and stain-resistant. The one negative is that stainless steel countertops can scratch easily. They do present a very modern but industrial look which could be balanced by incorporating some wood into your kitchen remodeling design.

You Can’t Go Wrong with a White Kitchen from Square One

White Kitchens
Stand the Test of Time


Square One Home Improvements - Kitchen Remodeling Loudoun

Maximize Your ROI with a White Kitchen

White Refuses to go out of Style

An average kitchen remodel is about $57,000 according to Remodeling Magazine, so to maximize your ROI, remember two words: “white kitchen”. Award-winning designer Mick de Giulio believes that white has stood the test of time because it is clean and fresh. White’s popularity started in the 1920’s and 1930’s when white was the only color offered by manufacturers. Household cleanliness was all-important during this time amid the Spanish Influenza which would claim 50 million lives. The rationale was that dirt could not hide behind white. Home appliance Manufacturers Association says white appliances have historically outsold all other colors. And the craze over white is back and continues with great momentum. Over 50% of homeowners state that white kitchen cabinets are their color of choice. White simply refuses to go out of style.

White Sets the Framework for Color Accents

Going with white cabinets, countertops and appliances sets the framework for you to use your creativity with color on walls, open shelves and accent pieces. Manufacturers stock white in all these items and over a gammit of price points, so you have many options in both style and cost. The beauty is these things are easy to change out when your mood flips, while your standard white kitchen framework remains intact. Interestingly enough, stainless steel appliances have been the first choice for more than a decade; but now white appliances are beginning to dominate again. Some homeowners prefer to hide appliances behind white overlay panels that match cabinetry style. But one of the newest variations in white kitchen cabinets is polished white enamel that looks like white glass. You may want to check this out.

Carrera Marble is Classic but has Alternatives

Carrera or Calcutta marble has been looking great in homes for thousands of years and is a sure winner. Some alternatives include:

  • Solid-surface and quartz-type countertops in dazzling whites
  • White laminates that are big money savers – up to about %50 over other
    materials
  • One-of-a-kind white concrete which is a very high-end option.

Traditional White Kitchen - Square One Home Improvements

Add an Accent but Keep the Balance

But bear in mind that not everything in your white kitchen should be white, but you must pick carefully. “The key is keeping everything in balance,” according to Alan Zielinski, past president of the National Kitchen and Bath association. He recommends that you scale your non-white choices so that white prevails. Consider wood flooring, or a wood butcher-block island to complement your white kitchen. Glass-front upper cabinets are also a design favorite. Adding black countertops, or a stainless range hood or pot rack adds a bit a glam, but pairs great with white.

A Heated Bathroom Floor Delivers for Winter by Square One Home Improvements

Upgrade Your Bathroom with a Heated Floor


Square One Home Improvements - Bathroom Remodeling Loudoun

Square One Home Improvements - Bathroom Remodeling Loudoun

A Heated Bathroom Floor Delivers for Winter

High-End Remodels Typically Incorporate Radiant Heating

Many high-end remodels incorporate radiant heat throughout the house, but especially in the master bathroom where there seems to be no limit to the price of luxury. Consider the pleasure your feet will derive from a heated bathroom floor as the ensuing months of Winter approach. If you are not up for a significant bathroom remodel, adding a heated bathroom floor will bring considerable added comforts to your whole family.

Key Advantages

A heated floor can offer you some key advantages:

  1. Affordability. The overall cost for about 200 square feet of heated flooring is conservative at about $3200. Budget about $2000 for a 200 square foot mat plus a thermostat at $200 – $300. Labor can range anywhere from a few hundred to multiple thousands depending on site conditions. For a simple, no-hassle installation, reserve $1000 for labor.
  2. Ease of Installation. The contractor starts with a template of the floor which is sent to the supplier. The supplier custom makes a heated floor mat to the designated specifications. An electrician will install the electric mat, which usually requires a 20-amp GFCI dedicated 110V circuit. Then a flooring installer will lay tile or marble over the mat. The result is a comfortable heated bathroom floor to top off your new remodel!
  3. Temperature Flexibility. Heated floor mat packages usually include a thermostat and a timer so they can be preset for the morning showers and cooler evening times.
  4. Energy Conservation & Comfort. Radiant heat typically keeps you and your feet more comfortable than forced air heating. Most clients set the mat temperature at about 80 degrees for optimal results.

Your Master Bathroom should be Your Oasis. Is it?

Bathroom Remodel by
Square One Home Improvements

Why Remodel?

An updated, luxurious master bathroom is high on the wish list of most homebuyers today. To be competitive in today’s real estate market, a home must have a master bathroom with updated fixtures, shower and tile. Discriminating buyers want an indulgent master bathroom with a spa-like feel – your oasis from today’s demanding lifestyle. Remodeling your bathroom will help preserve your home investment and create a beautiful, useful space tailored to your personal specifications. You may be surprised to hear that a bathroom remodel doesn’t have to require an over-the-top investment.

According to Remodeling Magazine, a mid-range bathroom remodel of $16k recoups nearly 73% of costs, while a more extensive remodel of $51k gives you a return on investment of 64%. Choosing to remodel your bathroom can be a smart investment decision that provides both value and enjoyment.

To maximize the value of your investment, it’s important to use smart strategies to create an attractive and budget friendly bathroom. Square One Home Improvements can help you determine a realistic budget for your remodel. They can also advise on where it makes sense to splurge on indulgences and where you can be more economical while still creating a luxurious and customized retreat.

Where to Start?

The first step is to retain a professional contractor who can work with you to establish a design plan for your bathroom remodel. The planning process varies from one week to several months before the actual work begins. During the planning phase you will decide on the layout of the space, choose the materials (fixtures, tile, etc.) that will be used and establish a budget for the remodel. Keeping the same square footage you have in the bathroom and locating new plumbing fixtures near existing ones are ways to keep cost in check.

High-end shower installations are becoming extremely popular and you may want to consider incorporating luxurious details like dual showerheads, shower tiles, rain bars and steam showers. Square One Remodeling has specific experience in high-end and complicated shower installations and they can advise you on what options will work best to meet your family’s needs.

Another trend in bathroom remodeling is incorporating Universal Design elements. This allows your space to accommodate people of all ages and ability levels, and includes features such as wider doorways, showers without a raised lip around the bottom and larger shower doors. Universal Design can help make your home more appealing to a wider range of buyers when you go to sell in the future.

Successful Outcome

The most important decision you will make to ensure a successful bathroom remodel is choosing the right contractor. Square One Home Improvements is a Class A contractor with extensive experience in both large and small bathroom remodeling projects. Square One provides most remodeling services “in-house” and subcontracts out very little of the work.

Our owner personally spends time on each project and will be your point of contact during your bathroom remodel. Square One will incorporate the highest quality materials into your bathroom remodel, ensuring that the space remains beautiful and functional for many years to come.
