Kansas City Home RemodelingMar 13, 2015
Before hiring a Kansas City home remodeler, it’s important to have a basic idea of what you want in terms of a home renovation. One thing that we always tell homeowners to consider is how their home’s exterior is linked to their interior. Many homeowners don’t consider this and will treat their interior and exterior as two different projects. One of the best ways to make the transition from the outside design to the inside design is through the use of natural materials.
Odds are your property has a few natural elements on it, whether it’s trees, grass, shrubs or stone walkways, just to name a few. By using natural materials in the exterior of your home, your house will fit in with its surroundings much better. For example, through the use of stone and wood. Try using stone siding for the home’s exterior and combine it with wood elements, such as wood slat walls or pergolas.
You can bring these natural elements indoors as well. Wood ceiling beams and wooden floors help ease the transition from outside to inside. We recommend using lots of large windows as well, such as floor-to-ceiling windows. This will not only help provide plenty of natural light throughout your home, but will allow you to bring the outdoor view inside, thereby helping to create a seamless look. There are plenty of ways you can bring natural elements indoors as well, from a stone wall to an indoor garden. An open floor will help bring all these elements together in a spacious and airy atmosphere.
