Each year the Home Builders Association of Greater Baton Rouge presents the Parade of Homes. Spanning two weekends in April, this event provides the opportunity to tour the newest homes and communities in the Baton Rouge area. This year’s parade will be held on April 6th & 7th, and April 13th & 14th; from 11am to 5pm on Saturdays, and 1pm to 5pm on Sundays. While these homes were designed, engineered, and built with the newest of ideas and the latest industry innovations, this year’s parade will have something new, so to speak; a remodeled home showcase. This showcase offers the chance for those considering a remodel or renovation to not only meet the best designers and remodelers that Baton Rouge has to offer, but actually experience their work.
The first house on this year’s parade is unique as it will be the first completely renovated home on the parade. While some homes will feature an updated bathroom or kitchen, this Live Oak Estates home has an entirely remodeled interior. Located just off of historic Highland Road in Baton Rouge, this 2,500 square foot, 4 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home has updated and upgraded aesthetics and amenities throughout multiple spaces.
All new wood, soft close cabinetry with full-extension, dovetail drawers were installed throughout this home. Every countertop has been upgraded to beautiful, easy-to-clean quartz. The kitchen, master bath, half bath, living room, powder bath, laundry room, and mud room all have new wood or porcelain flooring. The lighting and plumbing throughout the home have also been updated.
In addition to the flooring, lighting, cabinetry, and countertops, the new kitchen features a Dacor gas cooktop, double ovens, and a microwave drawer. Storage has never been easier now with a tall pantry unit with an integrated countertop. Likewise, the master bathroom now has a new double vanity complete with custom storage features that make organizing and access easier than ever before. Also, a new freestanding tub and oversized shower with a bench creates a relaxing, spa-like atmosphere.
While these beautiful, new homes have been a staple on the parade route for years, this year’s remodeled homes, like Acadian House’s Live Oak Estates masterpiece, display how modern design and technology can transform any home.
