It’s funny to think about writing goals for our own home renovation projects in the upcoming year when we’ve got so many client and brand projects already in the works for 2020! But you guys, it wouldn’t be us if we didn’t have projects of our own we wanted to tackle for the year. Here’s a look back at what we hoped to accomplish, and what we actually succeeded at in 2019. And now without further ado here’s a full 2020 home renovation project list!
This room has been a work in progress for much of 2019. We are not only trying to create a creative space for both of us to work but also our employees, as well as some much needed coat storage, additional seating and an area we can have client meetings. Talk about packing a whole lot of function and purpose into one space. I’m guessing you can clearly see why this project is top on our list! Good thing is we are 90% complete, and it will be the first one down in 2020.
We’ve already started this space too! Just before the holiday we invested in a Peloton Bike (hello, lovely) and were fortunate enough to receive a TON of equipment for Christmas from our family…talk about amazing! We really want to add some finishing design touches to this space to make it as motivational as possible. Our major goal for 2020 is personal development, so creating a space where we can continue to work and better ourselves is only going to push us further in growth, and inspire our family and brand to push the limits! Looking forward to adding just that too this space!
We have done almost nothing to this space. I want to type nothing but we did rip out carpet that the previous owners dog graced with their urine, remove drop ceiling tiles and quickly painted the space when we first moved in. But when it comes to looking at this space for us it truly feels unliveable! So this is going to be one MASSIVE project for us to take on while working on client projects. I broke the basement down into individual categories, seeing how each room is going to be it’s own project!
We want to create a living area/playroom space for our dudes to call their own. But this isn’t going to be a playroom space, we want this space to be comfortable enough for the entire family to hang out and spend time in, as well as a space for guests to enjoy when we have events at the house. That means we actually have to do that…challenge accepted.
Everyone wants a space that might make them actually want to do laundry. This is a must have for our crew. Especially when your laundry room is in your basement. Big goals here would be to create a functional space to sort, fold, hang and organize all the laundry that comes down and moves back upstairs.
We’ve got to have personal storage for seasonal decor items and all my pillows. Plus storage for paper products, vases and larger kitchen items we can’t store in our kitchen.
If 2019 taught us one thing it’s that we need storage for all our client projects and additional stock items we collect throughout the year. We need these two spaces to be separated and their own. And while we can’t add additional square footage we must get creative and make it happen.
One thing we love about Michigan living is the Spring and Summer. Michigan has especially amazing Summer weather with longer light hours that leave you longing for more. We want to create an outdoor space we love just as much as our indoor space. Our goal is to create an outdoor living space to use for Spring, Summer and into Fall! Great news is that we already have new pavers and an absolutely insane outdoor gas coffee table fire pit ready to be installed. Facebook Marketplace for the win!
Here she is again. Our kitchen has made our goal project list 3 years straight. We both truly want to tackle her this year. And you bet I’ve got big goals for her, yes I’ve decided we have a lovely girl kitchen. We want to take down the wall separating our living space and kitchen to create a true open concept in our home. The goal is to design a space for conversation, entertaining and gathering. All things we love.
These are our top five projects we hope to tackle in our own home this year. We’ve got big plans to expand the garage to a full size shop and add a studio space on top too! Not sure all this can happen in one year but we’ve learned you’ve got to dream big to make a big impact! We shall see where the year takes us!
Much Love –
