How About a Sunroom!

Sunrooms may be a larger project than building a pergola or patio, but it is truly an addition to your home that you can use day and night, all months of the year. At McHenry Remodeling, we design and build sunrooms that fit your home and your needs.

Sunrooms, like any outdoor living structure, are not a one size or design fits all scenario. So many aspects need to be considered to create the perfect space the size, shape, light, etc.

Do I Really Want to Remodel My Kitchen?

The very first thought of a kitchen-remodeling project transpires because of several different reasons. You may want to upgrade your cabinets and make your kitchen design more functional for your lifestyle. You may want your kitchen remodel to include enlarging your space by taking out walls or adding a small addition.

Design the Perfect Powder Room

With the holiday season in full swing, many of us will have more guests around our homes than usual. We tend to do many things to make family and friends feel welcome when they visit during the holidays, like preparing special treats or offering them a cup of holiday cheer. You may also take extra care in cleaning and preparing your home, decorating for the holidays, and making sure there is ample space for guests to sit and relax. 

Create Your Island Paradise

At this time of year, many people are spending even more time in the kitchen than normal:  baking special treats, preparing holiday meals, and socializing with family and friends. All of this activity in the kitchen can make you realize the importance of having extra space and purpose built storage to meet all of your food preparation, dining, and entertaining needs. The kitchen island has become a key component of meeting these requirements in today’s kitchen design, particularly as open-plan kitchens have increased in popularity.
