Remodel Your Home for Entertaining
Do you love to have family and friends over for dinner parties, birthday parties, or just casual get-togethers?
Do you wish your kitchen or basement had more to offer when you entertained?
Are you considering a remodeling project to improve your home?
If you’re looking for ideas about how to reshape your home for parties and social occasions, we’ve put together several ways you can have the perfect space for entertaining friends and loved ones.
- Open Kitchens - Many older homes are designed with tight, small spaces, including the kitchen. A good designer can find a way to take out walls to make more room, all while sticking to your budget. At Alpha Design + Build, our designers have the eye and experience to look at small spaces and figure out how best to utilize every inch of the space efficiently. We can help make even the smallest kitchens feel large and welcoming!
- Multi-purpose Rooms - Media rooms, dens, or bonus spaces, once popular in the 90s, are coming back into style Now, they’re being used for more than just big-screen TVs and lounge chairs. Today, you can utilize a multi-purpose rooms for everything from family game night and movie night, to just a night in relaxing with friends.
- Decks and Outdoor Spaces - To make more room, don’t forget your outdoor space! Weather permitting, outdoor spaces like decks and patios can be great gathering spaces for you and your family. Incorporate drop-down canvases and a space heater or two, and you can enjoy these spaces year-round.
- Opening Walls - Have you tried moving the furniture around and around, and still you don’t get the look you’re trying to achieve in your home? You might consider opening up some of the walls in your home. Consider taking down a wall separating the living space and the kitchen, so it doesn’t feel so disconnected.
- Think Smart - If you put the time and energy into a thoughtful design, the size of your space doesn’t matter. Minor arrangement tweaks and better storage can go a long way in a small space. Think pull-out cabinets, walk-in pantries, or a room that can be repurposed from an office into a guest room.

We came to love our team! Frank became part of the family. Every day the house was cleaned and organized. And Mary had great design ideas and listened to our passions to create the best spa experience.

The whole team was approachable and responsive to my emails and questions. I would recommend this company for any project, big or small.
Louise, Ann Arbor, MI
The deciding factor in choosing to work with Alpha was their confidence in the project and completion time line. They have done other renovations for us and it was a positive experience once again.

Brian and Joey, Ann Arbor, MI
Ken, Mary, and Phil made the renovation process for our bathroom-laundry room pretty painless. They kept us in the loop, cleaned up at the end of the day, and always demonstrated a high level of professionalism (early/on-time, respectful, reliable, etc.) which made them stand out compared to all the other contractors we contacted.
Adrianne and Chris, Ann Arbor, MI
The new bathroom is great. It was a very positive experience from beginning to end. The quality of the people working for
Alpha is a real credit to the company.
Chris and Pam, Ann Arbor, MI
When it comes to design, cost management and construction, the team at Alpha made me feel confident and reassured that my project would be completed on time and on budget.
Jeff and Mary, Ann Arbor, MI
I have nothing but good things to say about Alpha and what they did for us and our house. What Alpha says they will do, they do. Everyone I talked to had a horror story about contractors. Alpha is the anti-horror story. Alpha is that rarest of commodities – a genuinely reliable contractor.
Tony and Lisa, Ann Arbor, MI
I would highly recommend Alpha to others. The company workers are courteous, show respect and concern for the customer and demonstrate careful and fine workmanship.
Sara, Ann Arbor, MI
In our initial meeting, Alpha was very informative giving us a step-by-step on how and when things happen through the remodel process. Alpha took what seemed to us an overwhelming job and made it a very clear, step-by-step process ending in a great new kitchen!
George and Barb, Pinckney, MI
I absolutely love my house now. It looks brand new, and I have received many compliments from my neighbors (some of whom I have never spoken to before).
Kathy, Saline, MI
To the Alpha team who helped our kitchen be such a wonderful place for us to hang out, cook, and simply enjoy. If we had it to do over again, we wouldn’t change a single thing. We were most impressed with the professionalism you people displayed while working with us. Thank you.
Fred and Barbara, Ann Arbor, MI
We had Alpha build a two-story addition on our 1927 Dutch Colonial house. The design team at Alpha did such a good job of matching the style of the house that people who see it now believe it was all part of the original house.
