May is National Home Remodeling Month and it’s definitely challenging in the Middle Tennessee market which is why the LCT Team – Parks maintains a list of talented, reliable contractors to help our clients.  But, how should you prioritize?

We’ve previously shared smart home updates before you move in. Here’s a great list of updates which you’ll enjoy today while helping the overall appreciation of your home.

Home Remodeling – Flexible Spaces

The last two years has impacted how we live and enjoy our homes with the work from home trend only growing.  As homeowners continue to move away from the dining room table to carve out dedicated spaces for privacy, this space also needs to have flexibility.


LCT Team - Parks Listing, Solomon Road, Franklin, TN

This  pretty Franklin home, which will soon be on the market, takes a large game room space and carves it into areas for flexible use and could easily add a desk.

If your home doesn’t have a dedicated home office, you can utilize a secondary living space or unused bedroom. No matter how you adapt it for your office use, it needs to maintain its versatility.


Home Office, Legend Homes, LCT Team - Parks

Legend Homes is building houses available in Hardeman Springs and Stephens Valley which will offer home owners smart, flexible spaces. 

Natural light and storage space to help eliminate distractions is important.  Color is also an important decision.  Choose something light and airy to encourage focus.  In our blog on color predictions for 2022, we suggest a good neutral white like Sherwin Williams Alasbaster and Benjamin Moore White Dove.

Outdoor Living

Home offices and outdoor living have been cited in numerous surveys as the top home priorities of the past two years.  One of the most common questions we get is “does the home have a pool or can one be added?” If this is on your list of renovations, make a decision quickly because there is a significant wait list in Middle Tennessee.

Outdoor living is no longer an afterthought once you have the inside of your home “perfect.”  Investing in new doors to connect the outdoors with the interiors is a smart idea.  Several recent LCT Team – Parks listings have NanaWalls. This building feature is great way to weave indoor and outdoor spaces and include the option for folding or sliding.

If you do need to add an awning for shade space, take a look at fabrics which have the Skin Care Foundation seal of approval.  As the line between indoor and outdoor spaces happily blurs, you definitely want to find high performing, long-wearing fabrics.

Pop Of Color

An easy home renovation is to add a pop of color to your space, definitely on trend for 2022. Wallpaper continues to be a popular option with bold choices being seen in powder bathrooms as well as elegant grasscloth used in bedrooms, hallways and dining rooms.

Creative tile choices are another way we are seeing personality being expressed in new construction.  And, with the right tile installer, it is a smart home renovation you can enjoy for years.
