Indoor & Outdoor Renovations

What comes to mind when you think of the word “renovation”? Perhaps an updated bathroom, or new cupboards in the kitchen. In truth, renovations can be as small or as grand as you can imagine. In the over 30 years we’ve worked in the Okanagan, we’ve undertaken countless renovations to upgrade and improve homes and lifestyles for our clients. Here are some of the potential renovations you can consider.

Outdoor projects

We can update drab, plain, or unwelcoming outdoor spaces into lush landscapes. Our renovations can focus on entertaining, privacy, or aesthetics. We can incorporate or install large features, such as swimming pools, decks, hot tubs, or fountains into our outdoor renovations. Get the backyard life you’ve always dreamed of with a renovation project.

Bathrooms

A popular project, bathroom renovations can update old plumbing and fixtures, incorporate spa features, and install custom items such as freestanding tubs or rainfall showers. Update structural features, such as beams and windows, or refresh a space with new tile, mirrors, and wallpaper.

Kitchens

You can potentially increase the value of your home with a kitchen renovation. Replace old appliances with modern energy-saving ones with high-tech features. Restructure counters with new quartz, granite, or butcher block tops. Switch out laminate flooring for engineered hardwood or foot-friendly cork. Add a pantry or larder for extra convenience.

Full home

Some clients love their home but need an all-over update. We help you plan a full home renovation to handle structural and design changes in every room. For significant plumbing, electrical, and architectural changes, a full home renovation helps ensure a successful project.

Home Additions

If you love where you live and don’t want to move, but find your home doesn’t quite fulfil your needs, consider a home addition. You can add space and comfort with a kitchen addition, sunroom, rear extension, outdoor living space, or garage expansion.

Consult our expert design team for recommendations on adding a bedroom, home office, or private entrance. We can also consult on carriage houses, mother in law suites, or rental suites.

Make your home feel brand new—without the hassle of moving—with a custom renovation or addition. To get started on your own project, contact Keith Construction today for a consultation.
