Fine Design Living (http://www.FineDesignLiving.com), one of the Greater Toronto Area’s leading boutique design and build firms, specializing in high-quality exterior and interior custom renovations for residential and commercial clients, is advising consumers to keep in mind the benefits of indoor spring renovation projects.
The warm spring weather brings with it the allure of planning artistic landscaping design ideas. However, it’s important to acknowledge the benefits of having designers and general contractors work on the inside of one’s home as well.
“As soon as spring hits, it’s easy for homeowners to get caught up with backyard landscaping and front yard landscaping ideas,” says Braden White, owner of Fine Design Living. “However, upgrading the interior of the home can add personal and monetary value.”
The kitchen and bathroom still add the most monetary value to homes, and a recent poll shows that Canadians appear to be following this trend by allocating most of their funds toward these areas. But White notes that personal spaces should not be ignored; while taking the time to design a bedroom or living room may not be as lucrative, it goes a long way to adding comfort to any home, particularly those homes with young children.

Finance, March 27, 2014; http://finance.yahoo.com/news/cibc-poll-renovation-nation-canadians-080000148.html.)
According to White, one of the ways homeowners can add value and comfort to their house is by conducting an artistic interior design project on the basement. While a finished basement can yield a return of up to 75%, homeowners can also add an immediate personal touch by having it double as a game room for the kids, an extra living area, or a home office.

“Homeowners often misjudge just how beneficial it can be to have a finished basement,” White observes. “That space can be utilized in so many different ways and have multiple functions. And when or if it comes time to sell, the return on the investment can be substantial.”
“Beautifying a home with a new deck, swimming pool, or some other intricate landscaping design is certainly a great idea, especially for the spring and summer season, when more time will be spent outdoors, in backyards and sitting on the patio, soaking up the sun’s rays,” White concludes. “That’s why homeowners should hire a landscaping company like Fine Design Living. We will put the same amount of attention to detail to the inside of a home as we will to the outside.”
