Have the Best Home for Your Family

every home remodel is unique welcome to our nest

For the best home on the block you don’t have to go far.  Make your home the best you know by personalizing it to fit your family, friends and lifestyle in the best possible way. SemBro Designs and Remodeling has been here for years, helping Columbus Ohio homeowners like you discover the vitality and beauty of their own homes.  Voted Best Local Construction Company, Best Contractor and Best Kitchen and Bath Remodeler with the Columbus Ohio Angie’s List for four straight years, SemBro Designs and Remodeling promote confidence in our neighbors and customers.

To have the best home on the block, a good rule-of-thumb is to make sure it is the best to you.  The ones spending the most amount of time in a home are those who should have the most influence over how it functions, appears, and entertains.  If the work you do on your home is purely for showing to people who only visit occasionally, it may not be a look that necessarily brings you comfort so choose your home remodeling changes wisely, knowing the many hours you will spend with them.  SemBro Designs and Remodeling is a pro at helping you envision how your changes will look and feel.  We use a digital imaging software that shows you a before and after view of your home and lets you make changes before your home remodel gets started.

With all the home remodel options available for remodeling your home, kitchen and bath it can be hard to know where to start!  At SemBro Designs and Remodeling we make sure that you have the professional designer help to gauge what areas of your home need the most work and how to make it all come together into a style that feels perfect for you and your family.  A common complaint from Columbus homeowners is that the kitchen needs an update from an old-fashioned, constricting layout or cabinets that clutter the view.  They also hope to maximize the natural light their kitchen receives and to make socializing with guests while cooking much more comfortable.  Additional Columbus home remodels include room additions for new family members, growing home-businesses, and even outdoor living arrangements.  Whatever your family feels would make their home the best home on the block is important to us at SemBro Designs and Remodeling.

From kitchen upgrades to total home remodeling, SemBro Designs and Remodeling knows how to do it right and we love to build the confidence of every Columbus client, year after year.

Re-Design for Peace of Mind


For your best home and life this summer season, get ready with a beautiful new makeover for your home, kitchen, office, or bath and surprise yourself with a better summer than you’ve had in ages! We know it’s hard doing what you do; tirelessly following the grind day in and day out, responsibly looking toward the future with high goals and plans.  Make a well-maintained, pleasurably inviting home a part of that future with a Columbus Ohio home, kitchen or bath remodel that will not let you down whether you choose to sell or to stay there forever.

If you love the summer months but could do without the hectic family visits and late-night craziness that sometimes accompanies great parties, learn about how a Columbus kitchen remodel, bath remodel or outdoor living area remodel can help ease every gathering into a pleasant time both at the beginning and end.  For the family member you just can’t get away from, design a layout for your gatherings that makes it easy for you to slip out of sight at a moment’s notice, letting other guests help with the burden.  If you feel like there aren’t enough thrilling activities for the more rowdy members of your gang of friends, add some cool features like a waterslide to your pool or a covered patio with billiards table.  Whatever you’re missing at your home’s get-togethers now is the time to get it covered with an awesome Columbus home or deck remodel.

When you just want to come home some days and forget about all the troubles of the day, don’t let unpredictable appliances or faulty floor boards trip you up; let a Columbus home and kitchen remodel streamline every little task you have to accomplish.  Because let’s face it: any kind of work – even making a sandwich – is better completed with the best tools of the trade.  And appliances that give up on you or storage that swallows all your needed implements doesn’t help accomplish much; it can even cause us to give up.  So save your sanity and peacefulness this summer with a fix for all your appliance concerns and with storage that makes everything you need accessible with a simple touch, turn or click.  And get back to enjoying your time off instead of secretly dreading it.

For the best summer that you can remember, make it the one you spend at home, with people who matter and things that work.  Don’t waste another season not taking complete pride in the home you live in; instead, re-design it to fit your style, tastes, passions and life. Come see our SemBro team of designers today to discuss your next project.

Kitchen Desk Design With Style

Integrating a desk into your kitchen isn’t just about finding the space for it. It’s also about finding a way to make it look more stylish and interesting. Most of the kitchen desks I see are basically thrown together out of a file drawer, pencil drawer and other similar standard desk-height cabinets to achieve a 30-inch counter height, with a few wall cabinets slapped up on the wall above. Often they just look underdeveloped in comparison with the rest of the kitchen. But here are a few kitchen desks that stand out of the crowd — and how yours can, too:

1. Add a chalkboard backsplash. Do something different like a chalkboard or corkboard. It’s different looking and functional. I love that this desk also has open shelves above for visual interest. Not every inch can be all about function all of the time. That’s no fun!

2. Choose an accent cabinet color and accent tile. The rest of this white kitchen has classic white subway tile with charcoal grout. The kitchen needed some color and variation to break up the white, black and brown. The tiles here are reclaimed, and it’s often hard to find a place to use a few vintage tiles, but the small surface area behind a kitchen desk is a great option. Mix in a mismatched chair and cabinet hardware and you have something that works with the rest of the kitchen but doesn’t “match” it.

There’s no need for everyday needs to ruin the look; a wireless printer is set up remotely in an adjacent hutch cabinet to the left.

I’m not sure if this backsplash is tile or wallpaper, but it looks terrific. I love how it plays off the rug. A mismatched chair, open shelves for cookbooks and a ledge with baskets help make this kitchen desk look layered and interesting.

This client couldn’t decide between four favorite tile patterns, so we framed a board of each she can change out with the seasons. Decorative art tile can be expensive, so using a small amount in a desk area is a great way to get it somewhere without having to break the bank using it everywhere.

3. Integrate the desk in front of a window. Putting your kitchen desk in front of a wall of windows is a wonderful way to bring in natural light and also have that much-needed nerve center called a kitchen desk.

A kitchen desk in front of a window can be a light-filled spot to look up recipes, check email and do homework. If you can carve out enough storage elsewhere in the kitchen, resist the temptation to delete a window for a wall cabinet. I love the furniture details on the columns and cabinetry.

4. Flank the desk with open shelves or built-ins. Built-in shelves are a great way to softy transition a kitchen desk into the family room or sitting room.

5. Go for furniture details. Feet, legs, columns, or toekick valances are great ways to make your desk area stand out. I imagine this kitchen desk off a side entrance to the house: a perfect spot to drop the day’s bags, paperwork and groceries. There’s a spot for everything and it looks like organization heaven.

6. Have the desk moonlight as a baking center. If you don’t want to sacrifice a whole section of your kitchen for a desk that you might use a few times a week, let it do double-duty as a baking center, bar or serving station. All you have to do is drop the counter down 6″ from the standard counter height of 36″ to 30″ and voila, you have the perfect height for both baking and writing.

7. Carve out a niche for a message center. if you don’t have a lot of room for a large kitchen desk, opt for a smaller counter-height message center that allows you to perch or sit if you need to. A few open shelves and a spot to plug in phones, a laptop and a printer and you’ve got what you need.

8. Go wireless. If you don’t have room for a desk, let your island do double duty and carve out a drawer to stash that laptop when you don’t need it. With wireless printers and everything else these days, this is a great option.

9. Carve out a spot in the mudroom. If you’re lucky enough to have another spot in your home to house the desk, then go for it. Make that mudroom beautiful and more like a family studio: a place to wrap gifts, cut flowers from the garden, work on homework or check email — it can be a hub for all sorts of activity.
