Updating a ranch style home

Rated 4.82/5 based on 767 customer reviews

• Open up walls for view portals from room to room; use color to emphasize the transition between spaces.• Omit some hallways next to common spaces by removing the separation wall between them; this will provide “borrowed” light to the now boundary-less hallway and the additional space.Give your squat space a lift with options as inexpensive as a coat of paint.

An updated ranch home fits in better alongside taller neighboring homes, and attracts more buyers, if you list it for sale.• Replace the front door with a pair of glass doors (9-lite) or stain-grade wood stile and rail design; consider a carriage door design for the garage in stain-grade wood. • Transform your landscape with new patio trees in odd-numbered groupings and colorful, low maintenance plantings.• Wrap porch support posts with decorative panels; use wood, stone or brick for base.Because so many ranch-style houses were built quickly and with a cookie-cutter formula, the ranch is dismissed by some as simple, ordinary and without style.But there is more than meets the eye to the classic suburban ranch.
