5 Renovation Projects to Make Your Small Home Feel Bigger

  1. Install More Windows

    This one you might already know. More windows means more light and the illusion of more space, which will make your small home feel bigger. For added functionality, try a Bay or Bow window. The seat boards can provide extra space to display plants, books, and other decor.

    Cramer Siding & Window’s Preservation Replacement Windows are beautiful, energy efficient and come in an array of interior finishes and exterior colors, glass options, styles and designs.

  2. Transition to Blind-In Doors

    Dark drapes over your patio doors add bulk to your home and block natural light. To make it look like your home has more depth, ditch those drapes! Instead, try patio doors with blinds built right into them! You’ll save space, your home will feel bigger, and you’ll avoid finding your pets tangled up in your blinds for the hundredth time.

    Cramer Siding & Window’s Paragon Mini Blinds Collection has blinds sealed between two glass panels and no dangling cords. Our doors are Energy Star certified and customized for an exact fit.

  3. Swap to Sliding Doors

    Sliding doors are more functional for a small home because they maximize the amount of space you have for furniture placement. If your doors swing inward, you have to make sure that nothing stands in the way of their movement which limits the amount of usable space in your home.

    Our Illuminations™ Patio Doors by Preservation are designed to provide full, unobstructed views of the outside. A weathertight fit and powerful build provide energy savings.

  4. Opt for a White Kitchen

    There’s a reason white kitchens are trending in interior design for 2017. White makes a small home look bigger by reflecting light and the color’s simple elegance never goes out of style. Lucky for you, white is a standard color for most kitchen appliances and cabinetry. But if you’re looking for a little more flair for your counters, some say quartz is having a moment, too.

    Our sister company, Woodfront Kitchen can reface your kitchen cabinets with beautiful, Amish-made Kiln Dried Wood in hundreds of wood, stain, frame and center panel options. There are countless quartz options for your countertops, but my favorite white quartz styles are Dovedale and Torquay.

  5. Convert Your Tub to a Glass-Walled Shower

    It’s tricky to find space in your bathroom because you can’t exactly remove your tub or your toilet. What you can do is convert your traditional bathtub to a glass-walled shower. A shower has a lower threshold than a bathtub, and won’t visually divide space the same way. Glass walls in your shower will make your small bathroom look bigger by adding depth.

    Our sister company, Custom Bath Solutions specializes in tub-to-shower conversions and we can customize your new shower in a variety of finishes. We can even install a seat in your shower if you’re worried you’ll miss the luxury of lounging in a tub.
