3 Dream Home Projects & What They Cost

When it comes to home design, there is always seems to something that we want to do to improve our home. Whether it is to make it more efficient or more visually appealing, we love to consider how much better our home could be with a little bit of re-design. Below, check out some dream home projects and what it takes financially to achieve these looks.


  • Garage Into a True Organization Piece

With the help of a professional, you can finally get that cluttered garage into an organizational masterpiece. It will cost you though. Taking into account that material selection is a large determining factor, you can bet that you will at least spend $1000 to $2000 for an 8 foot span of open shelving in the garage. Storage bins, lockers or dividers of the same length would cost and additional $2000 to $3000.


  • Crown Molding

This may not sound like a “dream home project” but much of the elegance in a home is in its intricate details. The right choice of trim in your living room could give your home a whole new look. A small size bedroom could actually cost you under $500 if you choose a cost-effective molding material. If you have substantial rooms and prefer more sophisticated materials, be prepared to spend upwards of $2000.


  • Remove A Wall

In order to create a more open floor plan or connect more rooms together, you may have to remove walls in your home. This simple re-design is often overlooked when it comes to making your dream home budget, but it can cost a pretty penny. To remove any non-load bearing wall in a one or two story house, you will spend around $2500 to $3000. On the other hand, a single story load bearing wall will cost about $10,000, and a two story load bearing wall will push you upwards of $20,000.


  • A Dimming System

The lighting level in a room can enhance your dining and entertaining experiences, as well as set the tone for that area of the house. It creates a significant amount of flexibility to adjust to your needs. Trying to relax? Dim them down. Need to work? Turn them up bright. A basic dimmer switch will cost around $30, plus at least $1,000 for professional labor installation throughout your home.
