Chocolates? Flowers? Go Out-of-the-Box For Mothers’ Day
Whether you think of Mother’s Day as a “Hallmark holiday” or a very important occasion, it’s likely that your mother will expect some form of acknowledgement on May 8. Maybe you take her to brunch, or out to a nice dinner — or perhaps she’ll be happy to receive a card with a heartfelt message.
Some moms will no doubt want to receive a gift to commemorate their special day. Flowers are always a nice choice. Chocolates are nice, until they’re gone. A Google search will unearth any number of possible Mother’s Day gifts — but very few of them fall under the category of creative, unexpected and even over-the-top.
Authentic Designs & Remodeling would like to help you make a grand impression on your mother this year. Consider some long-lasting changes that can be made to your mom’s home to make her life easier, more comfortable or just more fun. Gift the woman who gave you life with a home improvement like one of these:
- A new kitchen. Most moms spend a lot of time in the kitchen, so why not make sure your mom has the workspace of her dreams — including new appliances, custom cabinetry and a granite or quartz countertop. Whether you choose to go for a complete teardown-rebuild or you pick one or two improvements to make, your mom will be thrilled.
- A “woman cave.” You hear a lot about man caves, but your mom deserves a special room reflecting her passions as well. From flooring and wall treatments to built-ins and custom furniture, transform a room that’s under-utilized into a game room, a library, a sewing room, a crafting room or (no sexism here) a place to watch her favorite teams with friends. If her home doesn’t have an existing room that fits the bill, think about an addition.
- An outdoor living space. If your mom loves to enjoy the great outdoors but craves the creature comforts usually found indoors, cater to both her needs with an expertly designed outdoor living space that can serve as her sanctuary and an excellent place to entertain.
These are just a few home improvement ideas that will “knock the socks” off your mother — and provide her with years of enjoyment. If you’re not sure what improvement around her home would give your mom the most delight, introduce her to us and set a project budget, and we’ll work with her to make her vision become a reality.
