To get the most out of your life, you need to spend time in a space that enlivens you. You want a place to kick back, unwind, and chill out so you can refresh, recharge, and restore your vitality. But when you only have a small, shabby, grimy, cluttered, and confining living room or family room to lounge in, you’re likely to feel more exhausted than energized while you’re there. And you’re certainly won’t want to have company over to see the state of your living room.
If your living room is really rundown, you’ll have even more reason to avoid it. Signs that the space is no longer safe include weak or broken flooring, chipping paint, cracks or holes in the walls, pest infestations, or mold. If you live in an older home, your living room may even harbor asbestos or lead paint, both of which can really harm you and your family.
Thankfully, BenchMark Home Services offers living room remodeling services that can save you from the pit of despair that is your living room. By allowing us to resuscitate your room with our first-class craftmanship, you can receive all the relaxation that living rooms were invented to provide. You’ll also be able to socialize to your heart’s content in a room you prize.
The Benefits of a BenchMark Remodel
During any BenchMark remodel, the first concern of our team is the health and safety of your family. When we’re in your home, your family is our family, so we always take every precaution to protect them. Our plumbers, electricians, carpenters, and other home remodeling experts never fail to keep every part of your project up to code. We rigidly follow the highest standards for living room construction, so your living room will be entirely safe when we’re done with it.
Our second priority is improving the size, functionality, durability, and comfort of your living room. We can expand the area in various ways. We can also equip it with custom storage solutions, energy-efficient features, and low-maintenance materials. Finally, we can enhance the space with colors, details, and décor that satisfy your style and secure total serenity.
After your living room has received a remodel from BenchMark Home Services, you won’t want to leave it. Your remodeled living room will be so plush, peaceful, and inviting that you’ll plan to do as much as you can there. You’ll also relocate all of your social events to your living room so you can proudly share the space with your friends and family.
The Promise of a BenchMark Living Room Remodel
The first step to successfully revamping your living room using BenchMark’s living room remodeling services is determining what you need from the space.
Maybe your living room is just disorganized, so storage in the form of shelving and built-ins would suffice. Perchance, your living room is poorly lit, so you need more lighting to evenly brighten up the space. Your living room could also be a bit drafty, so new windows would help seal the warm air in and the cold air out. Or, you may even require an enlarged area to accommodate your growing family, so tearing down a wall or two is in order. No matter how much your living room must improve, you don’t have to worry. BenchMark Home Services exists to meet your every need, and we have the ability to do so.
The next item to address on your remodel agenda is admitting what you want from your living room. If you feel that watching the big game on a bigger screen would be infinitely more fun, then you’ll want to hook your living room up with a high-tech entertainment center where you can mount your new TV. Or, if you’re a movie aficionado, you may want to indulge your addiction with something even more opulent, like a project and rollup screen. Perhaps you prefer simpler pleasures like watching a fire glowing in the hearth, but your living room doesn’t have a hearth.
BenchMark can provide your living room with a custom entertainment center, an in-home theater, a fireplace, and more. Each of our expert home remodelers has over fifteen years of experience, so we can do it all. Therefore, we would love to have you put our skills to the test.
The Process of a BenchMark Living Room Remodel
Once you’ve designed your living room remodel with BenchMark Home Services, we can begin our reputable remodeling process. Our approach starts with deconstruction, which involves removing everything that you’re ready to part with. We take out old lighting, windows, and flooring. We also trim the walls down to the studs and remove any walls you no longer want.
But before we do anything to your home, we complete site preparation and logistics. Specifically, we set up a dust barrier and a HEPA filtration system. With these tools, we can minimize the dust that the remodel generates. Consequently, less dust will get into your ducts, travel through your house, and enter your lungs.
Another step we always take during your remodel is cleaning the area at the end of each day so that we can start well in the morning. We also send you an end-of-day report detailing our daily progress.
After deconstruction, we commence the mechanics phase of the remodel. This phase consists of replacing and rerouting the electricity as necessary. Our licensed electricians and builders always adhere to the most precise industry guidelines so that every part of your project passes inspection.
During the third phase of a BenchMark living room remodel, we deal with the ceilings, windows, fireplace, and drywall.
Living Room Ceiling Installations
To give your living room a true top-to-bottom makeover, BenchMark Home Services can update your ceilings. So, if your living room currently has popcorn ceilings, low ceilings, or damaged ceilings that you’d like to overhaul, we can refurbish them with the ceiling treatment of your choosing.

As a result, your masonry fireplace will be sturdy and safe. We can also fashion your masonry fireplace out of any suitable substance, like brick, concrete, or stone.
