From full kitchen and living room upgrades to single room renovations, Mike Edwards and his team at BellaRosa Developments in Red Deer have many ways to help enhance your current living space.

Learn how you can love your home again

From one room to major renovations, no job too big or small for Red Deer builder

So, you’re thinking about your living space and wondering what makes the most sense: do you shop for a different home, build new or renovate the home you’re in?

If you’re like many people in and around Red Deer, you’re happy with your location, but there’s elements of your current home that aren’t meeting your needs. Your busy kitchen feels too small, you dream of a brighter, open-concept living room/kitchen, or maybe you’d love more closet space.

Renovating could be the way to go. But if you’re not comfortable doing your own work, finding a local, experienced builder can save you time, money and frustration, and “help you love your home again,” says Mike Edwards, owner/operator of Bella Rosa Developments in Red Deer.

Group your renos or do one job at a time

Having spent more than 40 years as a carpenter and undertaken everything from full-home construction to smaller jobs such as framing, flooring, drywall installation and more, Edwards is adept at finding solutions for clients’ redesign and renovation projects. “No job is too big or small, whether you need help with interior design, taking down or putting up a wall – we’ll take on the drywalling and taping if that’s not your forté,” he says.

From renovating bathrooms to installing new cabinets, counters and sinks in the kitchen, Bella Rosa is able to update your home for your own use or to help increase its resale value.

Making use of that unused space

Is your family growing? Maybe the kids are getting older and need more room? Perhaps you’ll soon be caring for aging parents and want them close by. Turning that storage area into an extra bedroom, or creating a legal secondary suite are workable solutions, Edwards says.

“If you want to develop your basement so your in-laws can move in, or you’re looking at subsidizing your mortgage payments by introducing a legal suite, we can help with that,” he says.

Talk to the experts first

If you already have ideas, but aren’t quite sure how they might materialize, talking to someone with experience first is always a good idea, Edwards says. And with Bella Rosa providing free estimates on your renovation job, no matter what the size or complexity, it’s easy to get started.

Call Edwards at 403-588-0407 or email to learn more about the options for transforming your home.
