6 Ways to Improve Your Home with Custom Carpentry Services

Are you tired of not having enough storage space to keep your home tidy? Sick of looking at outdated, ugly cabinets and consoles? Wondering how to make use of an awkwardly shaped room? Searching for ways to add value to your property, or infuse it with your own personal sense of style?

It might not be the first thing that comes to mind, but there's a surprisingly simple, cost-effective way to take care of every single one of those problems: professional carpentry services. There are so many ways that a skilled carpenter can transform your home by adding functionality and making the best possible use of available space—not to mention adding charm and personality that's perfected tailored to your tastes. Whether you're planning on selling your home in the near future and want increased value or you intend to live there for many years to come, a detail-oriented, transformative carpentry job will change the entire look and feel of your room for the better.

Our carpentry service crew at Mr. Handyman of Anne Arundel and North PG have the skill and expertise to provide superior quality workmanship and unparalleled customer service. We put together this list of six ideas for custom carpentry improvements to help inspire your own home enhancement based on the many successful carpentry projects we've previously completed.

1. Cabinets

If you find yourself constantly wishing for additional storage space in your kitchen, it probably feels like there's no effective solution—after all, you can't make the room any bigger — but a clever design that is created specifically to address your needs and wants will give you the additional storage you're craving in the area you have available. If you've ever wanted your cabinets to be laid out more strategically, or the drawers to be bigger, or wish there was a way to add eating space in your kitchen, custom carpentry services are your opportunity to address those problems and make your kitchen work for you.

Since your cabinets take up so much of the kitchen, how they look tends to dictate the style of your whole room—a simple style refresh or even just a change of color makes a world of difference in how you feel about that area of your house.

2. Decks and Porches

Lately, outdoor living spaces have taken center stage as an ideal place to socialize with family and friends. Your backyard deck is an ideal place for grilling, relaxing, and just soaking up sunshine, while your front porch does a lot for your curb appeal and gives guests their first impressions of your home.

Whether you need a replacement deck or porch or want to have one built from the ground up, spend some time thinking about who will be using it and what types of activities you want to do there so you can plan to have enough space and amenities to make it the envy of the neighborhood. Carpentry services include adding extra touches like built-in seating around deck perimeters, custom planters, or even a gazebo.

3. Bookcases and Shelving

Most people don't spend too much time pondering their bookcases and shelving units—it's the stuff that's on them that matters, after all — but with the right choices, they can become a room-defining feature. Picture your study with wall-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. If your room has a high ceiling, you could even add a ladder on rails for the ultimate book-lover's dream library.

If you just need an unobtrusive place to store things, floating shelves with hidden brackets create a clean, minimalist look. A built-in trophy case can be the perfect feature frame for your proudest achievements. Shelves can even replace furniture such as bedside tables to give you back some floor space and keep the room looking uncluttered.

4. Crown Molding or Other Trim

One of the things people love about historic homes is the crown molding and lavish trim around doorways and windows that make them unique and full of charm. Those luxury trims don't have to be a thing of the past, though! Expert carpentry services can add all that character into your modern home, and it doesn't even have to look old-fashioned if you don't want it to—since it's a custom project, you can choose a style (contemporary, rustic, elegant, etc.) that perfectly matches your existing decor.

5. Entertainment Centers

Cords, cables, and controllers spilling out of every nook and cranny—if this sounds familiar, your entertainment center might not be the optimal set-up. Prefabricated entertainment centers often don't fit perfectly into the available space, or just don't have the correct configuration for all the television and video game equipment you want them to hold. Carpentry services can create a custom option that will end the madness by keeping cords neatly out of the way and providing a place for everything (and everything in its place).

6. Play Spaces

Who would have guessed that little children could have such an overwhelming volume of stuff? If you haven't seen the floor in the playroom for months, you'll benefit from carpentry services.

From cubbyhole shelves that make tidying up simple enough that even kids can (and should) do it, to window seating that happens to have a hinged toy box underneath it, there's so many ways to add functional play spaces and make pleasant, organized areas that everyone in the family will want to use.
