Open Concept Renovations

Prior to 2000, most homes were built with segmented living areas. Whether they are turn-of-the-century homes in the Glebe or 1980s production houses in the suburbs of Ottawa, the entrance, living room, dining room, and kitchen are all separated by walls.

With walls in your way, it’s hard to keep an eye on the kids or be part of the conversation when entertaining guests. Older homes have rooms like parlours and salons that sit unused and rob square footage that would be better used elsewhere. A popular solution to this space cramp is to knock down the walls to create an open concept living area.

Open concept renovations are risky projects that should only be done by experienced professionals. If you try to do it yourself or hire a lone guy because he was the cheapest, he could remove a load-bearing wall and imperil the safety of your entire home. You need to work with a knowledgeable contractor like Holland Homes and Renovations. Our experienced and qualified staff work with certified structural engineers to ensure the integrity of your home is not compromised. Once the work is complete, you will enjoy a remarkable open concept renovation delivered on time and on budget.

We will take a dated home and bring it to the forefront of contemporary style and elegance with a stunning open concept renovation. Not only are the finishes absolutely breathtaking, but you can rest assured that the entire renovation is structurally sound and built to last.

Benefits of an Open Concept Renovation

Open concept renovations are great choices for improving the flow and space of your home. Gone are the days when each room needed a separate wall and entrance. Today’s modern homes often feature open concept areas where the lighting, décor and functionality of the house flows together from room to room.

Choose to incorporate recessed lights/pot lights in order to tastefully light your open concept spaces with minimal footprint in the ceiling. Also, open concept renovations allow for hardwood to flow from one room to the next, giving the house a continuous and open feeling.

While these are just some of the benefits of an open concept renovation, keep in mind that there are challenges that must be dealt with properly by an experienced and knowledgeable renovations team.

Issues such as structural integrity, load bearing walls, ventilation, lighting placement and structural support beams are some of the areas that are important to manage when opening up your floorplan. Holland Homes and Renovations has a portfolio of successful open concept renovations that demonstrates our team’s ability to meet your open concept home renovation vision in Ottawa in terms of the right look and feel, but also in terms of safety and proper building code.

During your free consultation, ask our team about some of the key choices you can make during an open concept renovation, including:

  • Recessed lighting / pot lights
  • Ventilation placement
  • Removing walls
  • Flooring
  • Placement of electrical work and outlets

Open Concept Kitchen Renovations

One of the most popular places that homeowners look to start their open concept renovation is in the kitchen. Removing walls and opening the kitchen up so that it flows into the sitting area or dining area is a great home renovation choice as it allows the natural lighting from the main floor windows to flow into all living areas of the main floor. It also allows for great entertaining options as you can prepare meals for guests while still maintaining visual sightlines with them.

Open Concept Basement Renovations

Basements can also benefit from an open concept renovation. Consider merging spaces in the basement to create one open feeling for entertaining or recreation. Basements often contain storage rooms, furnace rooms and main areas that can be re-arranged during an open concept renovation to improve space and also allow the flow of natural light to be maximized from the basement windows.

Holland did a large renovation for me last year, completely gutting a duplex and re-building a beautiful two level apt. Scott was an amazing craftsman and is highly skilled, Marc's finishing and attention to detail wrapped up the job very neatly. Thanks Rob and Holland Renovations
