What if Christmas doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more…”

Along with Charlie Brown and Virginia, The Grinch pondered the real meaning of the season and came up with a heartfelt conclusion: It’s not about the stuff.

This year, as we look back on the things we’ve survived, it’s a good time to take stock of what really matters—each other.

People are choosing experiential gifts over empty material ones. As we slowly emerge from the pandemic and start to throw parties and reconnect once again, people are remodeling their homes to improve their everyday living experience, whether that means entertaining or gathering as a family in a gourmet kitchen to envisioning a spa-like master bath oasis.

The experts at Acclaim Renovations & Design have four-plus decades of experience and talent to bring your dream space to life. They’ve even earned a slew of industry awards and accolades along the way. Three things they’ve earned a reputation for are honesty, reliability and innovation.

The owners, designers and craftsmen are passionate about bringing an elite level of home renovation to the area. They create one-of-a-kind spaces (no cookie-cutter jobs allowed) that reflect each homeowner’s personality and lifestyle.

During the planning and design phase, they ask a lot of questions to pinpoint the functionality and unique style of every room, from kitchens and bathrooms to basements and home additions.
