With kids come toys. Lots and lots of toys! Every parent knows the struggle of having their living room converted into a playroom. Keeping the kids entertained and occupied versus keeping your house tidy and livable is a daily battle. But what if everyone could have their own space to enjoy? The ideal solution to this struggle is to have a dedicated playroom – an area where the kids can play happily, but without having every toy they own strewn throughout your house.
Turn your spare bedroom or a corner of the basement into a play space or improve the value of your home by adding a loft conversion or an extension to make a playroom the kids will love. Wherever you make room, use these tips for creating the perfect space.
- Storage, storage, storage
Kids accumulate a lot of stuff, so it’s necessary to keep the place tidy by having ample storage, including shelves, toy boxes, and cupboards to tuck away their things.
You don’t want to overcrowd the room, leaving the kiddos with no room to spread out their things to play. The more floor space you can give them, the better.
- Comfy Space
While the kids will love their own play area, they’ll also love their own chill-out zone. Bean bag chairs make the perfect spot to read a good book, play video games, or watch a favorite movie.
JM Construction/ JM Kitchen and Bath, your St. Charles kitchen and bath professionals, also specialize in whole home renovations. When you’re ready to give the kids their own play space, call on us to get the job done.
You make New Year’s resolutions for dieting, exercising, and saving money so why not resolve to update your living space in 2019? In the spirit of new beginnings, we’ve come up with a list of resolutions you might want to consider that will help make your home more beautiful and efficient in the coming year.
- Replace Windows and Doors: The beginning of the year always has people thinking about ways to make their home more energy efficient. Replacing the old with new materials and solid seals will save you money in the long run and improve the look of your home.
- Renovate the Kitchen and Bathrooms: With simple solutions like updating paint colors or adding a backsplash, to larger projects like replacing kitchen cabinets and counters, there are many options for refreshing these spaces.
- Update Lighting: Add recessed lights, spotlights, a chandelier, or under cabinet lights to brighten up any room in your home.
It’s a new year and a chance for a new start. What better way to begin the year than with a fresh new look for your home?

With a large out-of-town family and tons of friends scattered across the country, your house is the hub for holiday gatherings and summer break getaways. If you love all the company but wish you had better overnight accommodations than the sofa or an air mattress than it’s time to consider a basement makeover. Creating a guest space or in-law suite will give your company privacy while giving you back some personal space as well.
Your basement is an underused space that isn’t living up to its full potential. Transforming your unfinished basement is the perfect solution for a guest bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. No longer will your friends and family be bunking in the spare bedroom between your master suite and the kid’s bedrooms. They’ll finally have an area of your home that’s meant just for them.
If you’re thinking of turning your basement into an extra bedroom, you’ll want to be sure to brighten it up with ample lighting and make it as inviting as the rest of your home. Make sure the basement suite doesn’t feel like an afterthought by choosing the furnishings as carefully as you would for your family rooms, including beautiful bedding, artwork, and a comfortable seating area.
Ready to get started? Contact the team of St. Charles Kitchen and Bath contractors at JM Construction / JM Kitchen And Bath by calling (636) 332-6800. Your newly renovated guest suite will make for a beautiful, warm, and cozy retreat for out-of-town guests that will have them wanting to extend their stay and return often!
As you may already know the kitchen is the heart of the home. So many family meals are prepared and shared here, so why wouldn’t you want to make your kitchen as beautiful as your precious memories? JM Kitchen and Bath is here to help you create your dream kitchen, so we compiled a list of three things to make your kitchen stand out from the rest.
Custom Cabinets- When you walk into a kitchen, the first thing you notice is the cabinets. This is why investing in quality custom cabinets is a smart choice. Not only will custom cabinets make a statement, but you can select the style, color, and height.
Countertops- From granite to laminate and everything in between, you can count on us for a diverse selection of countertops. Selecting the right countertop will bring the entire kitchen together because they sit on top of the cabinets.
Appliances- You don’t want to renovate your entire kitchen and still have outdated appliances. Many people are choosing stainless steel for their refrigerator, oven, and dishwasher.
Discover the endless possibilities for your renovation by giving us a call at (636) 332-6800 today. We are happy to help people with St. Charles kitchen and bath remodels.
