Bonus Room Renovation

Whether is it called the bonus room or simply an extra room, we at Greens Reconstruction and Renovation can help make it into an asset for your family. There are ideas for all sizes of rooms and with some thought on the functionality and purpose for who will be using it, you can turn previously unused space into a room that fills a need in the home.

Sometimes a room referred to as a ‘bonus room’ is one that has no outlets, windows, or closet. In New Jersey, in order for a room to be considered a bedroom, it must have a window, door and closet and outlets as well. The bonus room may have a slant in the ceiling or be a little low. Depending on the size of the bonus room and your imagination we can help create a room that meets the needs of your family.

A small bonus room idea that makes the most of the available space could include built-in bookshelves and recessed lighting. Both serve to free up floor space for games and other activities. Using neutral color palettes helps a room look larger and the impact would be improved by natural light through an installed window if there is no one there. Using a striped rug will make the room look larger. In fact, you may be surprised at how well you can turn a relatively small room into a combination gym, and home office. Some decor ideas may not work if you have a very small bonus room, but you can also do a lot to maximize the extra space you have found.

For larger bonus room spaces, perhaps, your dream bonus room is a home theater. Smart technology has made it possible to achieve an at-home theater experience that rivals your local cinema, as well as creating the right acoustics and ambiance.

A bonus room playroom is ideal for a family with children.

  • A built-in stage for playacting
  • Chalkboard wall for drawing.
  • Installed closets or bookcases for toys.
  • As children grow so could the room for gaming or studying.

Depending on where the bonus room is in the home, sometimes there is no possibility of an actual window. An illusion of a window can be created which increases the sense of space in the room. A media room can be a useful, one that includes banks where phones, tablets and laptops would be centrally located. A couple of desks and a designated nook for reading, and now there is a place for books as well as media.

As you can see, there are many possibilities to a bonus room that can benefit your family, let us help. Whatever your vision is, we can help bring it to life and make it a reality. At Green Reconstruction and Renovation, we have the expertise and professionalism to work within your budget to turn your bonus room into useful space for your family.


The Bathroom Remodel

Thinking of remodeling a bathroom, Green Restoration and Reconstruction can help guide you. Whether it is a major overhaul of the guest bathroom or making a bathroom more child friendly, our company wants to work with you to achieve the bathroom that works best for your family.

Bathrooms are one of the most heavily used in the home, and over time things can break down. Broken tile, and leaky faucets, as well as poor lighting can contribute to the desire for an upgrade. Bathroom upgrades add significantly to the value of a home when sold. That said, wouldn’t it be even better to get to use those upgrades for you and your family members now?

At Green Restoration and Reconstruction, we listen to what your ideas are, what your budget is and work within it to give your bathroom the lighting, cabinetry, tile as well as bathroom and toilet fixtures that make this room better. The options are endless, dependent on your budget and needs. Sometimes the tile needs replacing, or the towel racks are in the wrong location. Some people cannot see a bathroom without a tub as well as a shower and others, don’t need the tub at all. Depending on the size of your family and how the bathroom is used, you may want a total remodel which generally takes one to four weeks. We have designers that will help you design and plan out the remodel and order the parts necessary. Maybe you just need a few upgrades for issues like a leaky showerhead, broken tiles, or dim lighting; we can replace what is broken from cabinets to plumbing needs.

The wonderful accents available for bathroom remodeling today extend from recessed lighting to unobtrusive medicine cabinets, to toilets designed to save on water; and bathroom tiles that are easy to clean using grouts that resist mold, humidity, and stains. Colors are an option as well, either for the tub or shower, and tiles, cabinets, and flooring. Adding lighting to the interior of a shower can give one a better sense of safety. Bathrooms need a vent or sometimes even a window to release the moist, warm air that permeates them. Vents can be installed unobtrusively without the often-clanging noise that is the sign of an older vent system.

As you are thinking of what can make your bathroom better in functionality and even comfort, give Green Restoration and Reconstruction a call for all your bathroom remodeling questions.
