Reasons for Clubhouse Remodels
Developments often lose members due to poorly designed clubhouses with underutilized spaces. A well-designed clubhouses can boost sales and prevent homeowners from looking to other neighborhoods with better amenities. Well-designed clubhouses can become valuable revenue-producing centers, providing a space for parties and other community events.
A remodeling project sends a message to membership that the community is interested in growth and development, while creating a measurable return on investment. A new appearance for the clubhouse, can help your development retain it’s homeowners for many years to come.
Leading indicators that a clubhouse is in need of a redesign include: dated interior furniture and finishes, damage to walls and/or furnishings, and aging equipment such as HVAC systems, plumbing and kitchen appliances. If an interior finish is older than the seven years hotel industry standard, upgrading is typically needed, as mold and other allergens can produce health issues. Clubhouses that have a pool or other water element usually require maintenance and/or remodeling more often.
Other less obvious signs that your clubhouse needs a makeover are when the number of requests for usage and/or rentals have decreased or are not at the desired level. Higher HVAC and other utility bills may also show need for repair
Total Versus Partial Renovations and Cost-Effective Strategies
SCC Interiors are experts at ensuring limited homeowner association dollars are used most effectively. We work hard to ensure that budgeted funds are allocated in the best way to ensure the best use of the space. We can also work with the homeowners association to complete a phased plan that will allow them to complete the project in stages over a longer period of time.
Many clubhouses aren’t necessarily in need of a complete renovation overhaul and, thus, do not require a large investment. Sometimes, only a few interior architectural tweaks and treatments can create a new clubhouse dynamic without dramatically altering the existing structure. In that instance, members retain the familiarity of their clubhouse while experiencing exciting and new developments. SCC Interiors is very budget conscious and will work with your development on cost-saving initiatives to ensure the best possible redesign at a cost and method you can afford.

What Our Clients Have to Say
“It is with great pleasure that I write this recommendation for Angela Malz of SCC Interiors. Our clubhouse is almost ten years old and needed to be remodeled because of outdated furnishings and wear and tear. The members of the committee each have different decorating styles so we decided to hire an Interior Design company to oversee the renovation of our 4500 sq ft Manor House. None of us have ever used an Interior Designer so after doing plenty of research and interviewing several Interior Designers, we chose SCC Interiors to handle the project.
During the interview and throughout the entire renovation process, Angela has demonstrated an impressive level of expertise and professionalism. Our project consisted of choosing new paint colors, artwork, flooring and furniture and her selections were greatly received by all members. She has a team of contractors that she works with and they were excellent. Any minor issues we saw, she made sure they were fixed immediately without hesitation. Her quick and efficient manner of supervision throughout this project has been exceptional. Also, I appreciate that she worked with pieces that we already owned and incorporated them into the new design to help us stay within budget.
I highly recommend Angela and her team at SCC Interiors to anyone for any remodeling project. They are a pleasure to work with and she was committed to making us all happy and being a part of the decision making process. I will definitely use them again in future projects.”
