Renovated attics can be cozy and charming special spaces, while adding to the home square footage and resell value. These spaces are full of hidden potential to create extra bedrooms or bathrooms, additional living rooms, offices and studios, or maximizing storage areas. However, vaulted layouts can be daunting to remodel and decorate and this is a challenge that requires a clever design. Many homeowners need help to remodel and personalize this great space canvas. Arcbazar comes to the rescue with an innovative crowdsourcing approach that let homeowners connect with architects around the globe for out-of-the box creative design.
Arcbazar,a Cambridge- based start-up company helps transforms the concept of home renovation by providing access to creative online design.
