4 Handicap Accessibility Renovation Ideas

Most people don't think about having handicap accessibility built into their homes until they need it. However, it can open your home up to a bigger range of buyers and help you get the property sold much faster. So what kind of renovations actually make your home more handicap accessible? 

1) Larger Bathrooms

Having a larger bathroom means that you can get a wheelchair in and out of that space more easily. It also means a walker would be easier to navigate in that space for those buyers who would want to grow old in their homes. 

2) Open Floor Plans

Doors and arches restrict movement for those of us that deal with mobility challenges. An open floor plan has become more preferred among most buyers looking for a space that brings families together.  

3) Dedicated room for Laundry

Many buyers also want a mudroom space, so why not combine the two? Make room to sort the dirty laundry and store everything you need for doing it. Not only does this make your home more attractive to buyers but it also adds an element of being handicap-friendly. 

4) adding a hose and head shower attachment

Adding a removable shower head on a hose actually makes your showers and tubs easier to clean. It's a simple little thing that could entice buyers to your home. In addition, your showers also become easier to use.

Renovations for your Deck and Patio

When thinking about what kind of deck to build, also consider if you are looking for a view with your deck. This mountain getaway has it's deck in the treetops. 

Though, living in a coastal area, you may prefer simply to seal the wood and go with a more natural look. 

You could even create a nice place around your pool for relaxing.

Amazing Ideas for Basement Finishing in Logan Utah

Basement finishing can feel like a giant overwhelming task, but in planning such a home renovation, you can also have a lot of fun! In planning this post, I went out to a whole bunch of home improvement resources to bring you the best trends and ideas in the industry right here in one place.

So, you have an unfinished basement, in other words, a fantastic blank canvas of endless possibility. What are you going to put in that basement besides junk? Well, most people will include a gathering space in the finished basement that includes a TV, perhaps surround sound too. If you have a few different video game systems you might also consider storage for the games and systems you use. On the other hand, VCR's and tapes are pretty obsolete, so you may not need so much space for tapes or even your DVD's as most movies are on streaming now.

After a great gathering space with plenty of games to go around, you might also consider putting an in-home office in your basement. You may also want to think about how much natural light would be available to space if you plan to spend a lot of time there. Get yourself some comfy office chairs and maybe some built-in desks. Don't forget some space for books or other office knick-knacks.
Man cave? No problem. You can add some vintage signage, a workbench, and cork-board to hang up all the tools. Perhaps you collect license plates and want to hang those up too. Make it fun and make it yours! Got bottle caps? Create an incredible wall art or flooring with all those bottle caps that will blow your friends away.

Don't worry, I didn't leave the woman out. How about a craft room? A place for some sewing and a closet for storing all your fabric. Count me in! Finish your basement with a touch of sparkle by adding custom shelving units for all the craft supplies from paints to scrap-booking to a place for all your yarn projects.

Finishing the basement is a large task that you probably won't be able to do all on your own. From framework to electrical and ensuring you are abiding by all the current building codes you may require a professional contractor to help you out. If your project could use some expert advice, give our buddies at a call.

Libraries of the Future

Public and school libraries have remained relatively the same throughout the last twenty years of the explosion of technological advancements. However, the way that people do research has changed. Living in a world where almost any question can be answered with "Hey Alexa", "Siri", or "okay Google" has almost left reference sections in libraries desolate unused spaces. 

Library spaces today need more private or even small soundproof rooms for students to study in. Quiet spaces for writing papers, recording audio all to yourself, or even just a space for alone time would greatly improve the functionality of library space. Printers are something however, most people don't want to be lugging around with them. Imagine what a pain that would be! 

A functional public city center library should be also a place of refuge for a city. This means that it can be a seismically reinforced building with base isolators for our specific area here in Utah. It can be a place to hold public voting and other political events. Classes for the community can be taught at a library too.

Some incredible libraries even have mini theaters you can reserve for parties! How about gaming consoles you can check out? Other libraries create entire rooms for gamers to get together. 

What about an in-home library? Well, our friends over at can help you out with this too! From securely installing ceiling supports for indoor hammocks to custom shelving or even a secret door bookcase, they have you covered! Want an epic room for books? No problem! 
You can even have moving shelves installed where isles open between them with one push of a button. You can have even more space for your beloved old & worn books!
