With the economy still in a rut and the value of homes still decreasing, rather than moving, the new trend is to redesign old rooms or shuffle floor plans to upgrade. This can give a home a new fresh feel without the expensive cost of moving or adding a new addition.

The easiest way to solve this problem is through the use of a floor plan. This will help you to get an idea of how the furniture in question will look in the context of everything around it. One of my favorite tools to accomplish this task is a free piece of software called Google Sketchup. The advantage to using software instead of a paper and pencil is that the computer model will be much faster to build and edit provided you take the time to learn how to use the program properly. After you install this program, plan on spending about one hour going through the basic tutorial thats include. Remember, its much smarter to spend one hour learning to use a program followed by half an hour building your model than it is to spend three hours fighting with a poorly constructed model. If youre planning on doing three-dimensional work, I highly recommend that you go through the entire tutorial, which should take around two and a half hours. Thankfully, its quite easy to grasp due to the high quality of the included documentation.

Everyone needs more room in their closet! Small spare bedrooms next to the master suite are being converted into large dramatic dressing rooms. This is easily created by adding a door to the shared wall and adding hardwood shelving and cabinetry finished with fancy cabinet hardware to the spare room. The closet doors from the spare room are removed and hardwood shelving or dressers are inserted to add more space to the closet. Large three way mirrors, lounge chairs, and plush ottomans are added to complete the dressing room and give it a luxurious feel. Another common use for that spare bedroom is to create a sitting room for the master suite. The shared wall between the master and spare rooms is removed and finished with trim work. A chaise lounge and high back chairs with matching coffee tables are added to the sitting room along with luxurious curtains, decorative pillows, and rugs that coordinate with the master bedroom accessories.

Plan a room in groupings. In a large living room there can be a primary seating area with sofa and armchairs at one end and secondary seating, such as a love seat and light-scaled chairs, at the other. Relate the scale of furniture in groupings. Avoid tall wing chairs next to a low sofa, and side tables that are higher than the arms of a sofa or a chair. Keep traffic lanes open. Allow for easy access from one area of the room to another. Dont use a shin-buster of a coffee table in front of a long sofa - two small movable tables are a much better solution.

Once you have your ideas and a basic floor plan, visiting a local contractor is the next step. The more organized your ideas, the better estimation of price per square foot he can give you. He can also make suggestions for redrawing some lines of your home and share his expertise. Another option is to locate a log or timber company and have them work with you on a plan. They are able to provide and exact cost for their packages, thus making your home costs less variable. As builders we do this quite often for potential customers.
