Home remodeling might be the best investment you can make to improve the life of your family.

This past year has been crazy busy as we remodeled several spaces in our home. The most exciting (and exhausting) recent remodel was our kitchen. My husband and I (with the help of some friends), tore out our old kitchen. Over a nine week span, we rebuilt our kitchen. You can see the entire process here, beginning with week one.

Home remodel ideas for every space

Kitchen remodel ideas

We used RTA (ready-to-assemble) cabinets, and I talk about that process here. We installed the farmhouse sink and I share a tutorial on that process on my blog.

We knocked out half of a wall to open up our kitchen, and I made an inexpensive gallery wall on the other side.

Kierste’s Note:  My favorites in this room include the white tile backsplash, gorgeous gold hardware, the white alternative marble countertops, high ceiling, stainless appliances, and the lovely blue kitchen cabinets. I’m a huge fan of the microwave not being on top of the counter, because it really gives an uncluttered look, and gives you more counter space to work. You might lose some drawers or cabinets by moving it down below, but we’ve never regretted it. And the kitchen island! Love! The hardwood floors are a great shade that goes with everything else in the room. So many great remodeling ideas in this space. I love that they took out the half wall and changed up the floor plan just a bit.

Family room remodel ideas

Our family room has seen lots of changes, and you can see what it once looked like here. It looked nothing like it does now!

Kierste’s note: The before and after picture isso incredible! It doesn’t even seem like the same room. The navy wall is such a focal point for the living room, and is a lovely contrast with the white trim and walls.  

Bathroom design ideas

Due to a major leak in our master bathroom, we had to remodel the space.

The bathroom is now one of my favorite spaces in our home, and I share all the before and after photos here.

Kierste’s note:  What a relaxing space! The bathtub is gorgeous, and the upgrades in this space make all the difference. The half blinds let in plenty of light, but still provide privacy. I can see why this is one of their favorite rooms! I’m a big of fan of the black and white tile in the shower too.

Laundry room remodel and makeover

I remodeled our laundry room because I wanted to pretty up the space I use a lot, but I also wanted a little trial run with the subway tile before we remodeled the kitchen. Our DIY laundry room makeover made such a difference – I almost enjoy laundry now.

Kierste’s note: What a great space! Laundry rooms are always important to me, and this space has so many pluses.  Even small spaces can be utilized to be of the most use. There’s storage to eliminate clutter or extra items, and the cabinetry is a pop of color against the white.

Mudroom ideas

I made over our mudroom with paint and wallpaper, and the coat rack is an easy IKEA hack.

Kierste’s note:  The mudroom is usually my favorite space in the house, because it’s often the most used space.  I love love the shoe rack…what a fabulous find!  It saves floor space, lends that antique vibe, and is the perfect storage space for their shoes.  And all that light from the door! The wallpaper lends a classic look to the entire space.

The shoe rack is an antique find, but there are free plans to make your own.

Master bedroom ideas

My husband and I have been married almost 17 years, and we’ve always had a room full of leftover pieces. However, we our master had a makeover, and the space finally received the attention it deserves – See the full makeover here.

Kierste’s note: This happened at our house too! Our master bedroom was usually the last to be done.  The headboard is gorgeous, and I love the rug over the carpet. The gold light fixtures add a touch of elegance to entire space.

Boys Bedroom Remodel

My growing boys outgrew their room, so we updated their room. This space should now take them from their tween years until they graduate (something I don’t want to think about too much)!

Kierste’s note: I am IN LOVE with the buffalo check wallpaper! It adds just the right touch to the room, and makes a great focal point.  Iron beds are my favorite, and the touch of plaid pulls everything together.  

So much lovely home inspiration from Sara, and a great list of diy projects and remodeling projects. I appreciate all the attention to detail in each room, and while they’re each unique, they flow together every well.  Taking it room by room, you can make a list of things you want to change and tackle one project at a time.
