If you need an extra bedroom or bath, a home office, art or craft studio, party or playroom, man cave, home gym, media lounge or apartment for a boomerang child, think about what can be done with the current unused areas of your home. Sometimes a little ingenuity and custom design can extend your current abode without the need for a costly addition.
Old Saratoga Restorations created this beautiful, airy and inviting living space by renovating an attic that had previously housed dusty memories and forgotten objects.
You may not realize the potential of the dark and barren spaces of your home. Judicious placement of windows can take advantage of views the lower rooms could only aspire to. Skylights and loft-like partial walls can add natural light, and careful placement of inset and indirect lighting can dispel the night-time gloom while avoiding harsh glare.
Pitched angles from rooflines can be used as a design advantage to create a comfortable built-in wall seat, eye-catching custom storage or even a cozy bed nook. An eave can make a sexy hideaway for a luxurious soaking tub. Old Saratoga Restorations is skilled at turning the existing features of old architecture – such as venerable beams and brick chimneys – into striking design features. Because of our vast experience at historic restorations, we are skilled at determining the structural tolerances of older buildings and planning placement and plumbing to minimize expense.
