Ideas For Minnetonka Home Makeovers and Full House Renovations.
Kitchen Renovations With Center Islands
Destiny Homes often completely removes an older kitchen to help create a fabulous new kitchen with a combination of rustic and contemporary elements. Open-concept kitchens remain popular with a center island to accommodate today's homeowners who turn gourmet chef come evening. Restaurant-inspired cooking areas are custom built in. There may be a prep area for vegetables near the main sink, a baking station near the Wolf oven with a lift-up mixer in the base cabinets, a sandwich-prep area near the refrigerator, and a bar area with second sink and mini-fridge in the island. A well-organized kitchen and pantry are musts haves on everyone's list.
Remodeled Living Rooms And Fireplaces
Minnetonka living room additions and renovations, with dramatic back-lit barrel vaulted ceilins, create a sense of expanse that fits the grand outdoor views of the Lake Minnetonka. Attractive rambling one and one half story homes are popular for seniors who are retiring from a full and rewarding professional life to enjoy quality time at home with family and friends. Homeowner home improvement projects often include an expansive living room large enough for entertaining groups, and favor the warmth of a fireplace for cooler evenings to gather around.
Sun Room Additions To View Lake Minnetonka
Breathtaking "ocean like" vistas of Lake Minnetonka allow homeowners to maximize the pleasures of living on or near the lake. Windows fill the entire walls overlooking the lake that carry the room through the day from enjoying full sunlight in the morning to soft lighting for evening times, watching the boats as they call it a good day and rest for the night at the local marinas.
Remodeled Formal Dining Rooms With Modern Lighting
Luxury dining rooms with modernized lighting are coming back as families welcome more time at home together. It really depends on the room. Custom styled wainscoting creates a fine dining atmosphere, usually dividing a wall in thirds and keeping the wainscoting just above 1/3. Liz Sprenger, home interior designer at Destiny Homes chooses just the right height when using wainscoting in proportion to the rooms size and ceiling height. Home makeovers that include adding a bay window for an additional seating area extends a formal dining room. A window seat set apart with a couch with chandelier and standard lamps is another alternative.
Sunlight Filled Front Entries
Prominent entry doors dead center in the front of the house take a commanding presence. Some Minnetonka home makeovers prefer a home's entry doors with windows that allow sunlight to pour in and immediate reflect a home's sunny side and set a cheerful tone. Windows can create daylight-filled homes in the morning to soft lighting for evening times watching the boats as they settle in at local marinas. Stepping into a Minnetonka home that introduces two and three levels with sweeping stair cases and rolled banisters state the home's distinctive personality and a welcoming tone.

Perfect Two and Three Car Garages With A Room
The garage has become as important as the home. Two and three car garages with a room above or a work shop in the back extend a home living space. Garages offer key storage space with ready access to tools, sports or boating items, project materials and so much more. A guest house over the garage may be the perfect spot to add private guest quarters that offer their own views of the lake.
