If you have ever heard the phrase “they don’t build them like they used to” chances are the expression was referring to a beautiful old house. There is something about older architecture that harkens to another time. A time when craftsmanship and attention were put into every detail of every piece of the structure of the home.
Fast forward to today when everywhere you look is another cookie-cutter suburb or pre-manufactured building being put up. So when you find a home built before the 1950s you want to hold on to it, care for it, and honor its history.
How do you accomplish maintaining the good bones and aesthetic of your old home, while still updating it to feel new? How do you modernize a 1950s house? Are home renovations worth it with an old house? To answer these questions, and more, you need to find a renovation contractor that specializes in remodeling old homes. You need Allied Remodeling Contractors.
How can Allied Remodeling Contractors help Modernize Your Older Home?
Here are some ways Our renovation contractor can spruce up and modernize your old home remodel:
The design of rooms in older homes tended to be divided into small separate spaces. When architecturally an option, removing a wall between the kitchen and the den, or a living room and family room, can create a much more open layout. An open layout often makes your space feel and look bigger.
Many older homes from the 1930s-1950s are very dimly lit compared to today’s standards. Our renovation contractor will show you where you can add more ceiling fixtures to really brighten up a room, and improve and expand your space visually.
Say goodbye to mixed materials and especially carpet. Instead of having linoleum in one room, tile in another, and maybe even some wood sprinkled in, having one uniform material throughout your home creates a cohesive look and a cleaner design.
Along with new lamps and ceiling fixtures, replacing the small window of the original design with larger windows adds more light and brightens the space. Older homes typically had fewer windows, as well as much smaller windows compared to today. Let our renovation contractor show you the possibilities of adding more windows.

DIY or Hire a Renovation Contractor?
The answer to this question really depends on the project that you are embarking on. Renovations come in many shapes and sizes. If you want to change the aesthetics of a room by changing the color of drapes and paint, and you are comfortable with it, this is a project you could potentially take on yourself. However, if you want to install new lighting and windows, and add a built-in seating area with storage and electrical outlets, you will need to call a renovation contractor like Allied Remodeling Contractors.
If you are not comfortable doing any part of a project yourself or you are concerned about the quality of work you can produce on a project, it is a red flag that you should be calling a renovation contractor.
