We all know that the pandemic made people use the rooms in their homes for more than their intended uses. People worked from their couches, went to school at their dining tables, drank in their bathtubs, and exercised in their garages.
Now that life has started to return to normal, people realize they don’t want their homes to feel as cramped as they did during the pandemic. They want designated space for their whole family to enjoy all of their hobbies without switching up their rooms constantly. They want their dining room to be a dining room, their living room to be a living room, and their garage to be a garage. As a result, people came out of the pandemic wanting workout rooms, homework spaces, playrooms, etc.
For example, we recently had the opportunity to work with a wonderful family in Bellevue. They wanted more space near their kitchen for their grade-school children and the adults to gather together. They didn’t want their kids having to do their homework and play at the dining table or in their basement while they cooked.
To make their wish come true, we converted their outdoor breezeway space between their home and garage into a room. We knocked down the exterior wall in the kitchen and put up walls in the breezeway. We insulated it, installed windows and custom milled siding, and put down beautiful hardwood flooring. We created an open concept space that connects to their kitchen where their kids can complete their homework and play with their toys while they cook in the kitchen. They now had their dream room designated just for their kids to hang out within eyesight.
There are many types of designated rooms we can add to your home. You name it, and we can make it happen. Here is just a shortlist of designated spaces you can have:

A client called needing a new look for their daughters’ bathroom. Their bathroom was dark, closed-in, outdated, and cluttered. It was situated in their basement, which naturally caused the room to be dark. However, the client believed we could create a brighter, roomier, and warmer space out of it.
