Outdated ranch becomes an entertainer’s paradise, both on the interior and exterior

Sparse, but chic, this entry door gives off a welcoming vibe that urges friends and family to continue through the door to the wonders of the rest of the home.

This kitchen renovation included new semi-custom cabinets, granite countertops and a porcelain farm sink.

In this great room, the remodelers installed wide plank hardwood floors and replaced an old fireplace with a new contemporary design.

These homeowners favor an open room design, but by placing an area rug underneath the dining area they have succeeded in adding dimensions to the space while still leaving it open.

Various remodeling ideas transformed this 50s ranch into a contemporary living space, complete with a second floor master suite addition.

Rather than just serving as a temporary gathering place, this kitchen island with seating is somewhere where the homeowners and guests can come together and enjoy the evening, it doesn't matter if they are simply talking over drinks or dining casually.

A striped area rug adds visual interest to this covered outdoor deck, a space where the homeowners love to entertain.

With a dining table for eight and separate outdoor bar stools by the grill area, there is plenty of seating for meals by the pool.

A spacious table surrounded by cushy outdoor chairs is located right next to the grill area and is in the perfect position for transferring food from one area to the other.

Indoor activity from the kitchen and dining area flows easily to the great outdoors with this covered outdoor living space

To the rear of this home, an outdoor living space was created by adding a spacious covered back porch.

To enhance this swimming pool area, contractors added lush landscaping, stone walls, a fence and a new deck.
