Top 10 reasons to remodel
1 | Sales potential
The external appearance of your home is important for raising the value and sales potential; enhance curb appeal if you’re looking to sell. Whether you are renovating one part of the exterior elevation of your home, changing out the front door, remodeling the kitchen, adding bathrooms, or updating all of the exterior look and feel of the home keep an eye on maximizing your home listing price for when your home goes on the market.
2 | Preparing for retirement
If you’re planning on staying in your home thorough your senior years, it’s important to upgrade your home with age-in-place features, including replacing your bathtubs with easy step-in showers with bars and installing toilets for people with limited mobility, creating a home with ease of function to ensure you enjoy your home. Or maybe you need to add room for grandchildren to visit; on the other side of the house.
3 | Go green
Paying too much for your utilities? Slash your energy bills. Replace your single-panel windows with energy-efficient windows and you can save hundreds in monthly bills. Add energy-efficient appliances, solar water heater, high-efficiency furnace, and added insulation to decrease energy costs and the upgrades will pay for themselves over time. Plus energy efficiency will make your house more comfortable and reduce your carbon footprint.
4 | Home is where the heart is
And the kitchen is the heart of the home. Family and friends gather and spend most of their time here. Everyone gathers to start their days and to check-in when you get home. Our kitchens set the stages for family gatherings, celebrations, heated discussions, and to pass down to new generations family traditions and recipes. Is it any wonder that kitchen remodels are so popular and have the largest payoff in terms of boosting a home’s resale value?
5 | Make it right
Your bathroom might function just fine, but it’s always a good time to update and put in new plumbing. Maybe the kids have outgrown sharing rooms? Re-configuring by adding functional space to a laundry room can make sometimes an everyday task easier. Look for areas that need to be updated and improved through out your home.
6 | The kids are staying
Your family won’t be going anywhere until your kids are grown; maybe even stay through/past the college years. So why wait 10 or 15 years to remodel? Make your home suitable for the future now; adding bathrooms, reading nooks, creating outdoor space to entertain; look to add spaces for expanding families can make a difference for a joyful households.
7 | Updated look
Don’t waste another day looking at those tile (with cracked grout lines) counter-tops! Does your home reflect the era it was built in; like a flip phone? Now is the time to make your retro kitchen environment into a kitchens of today’s century. Perhaps it lacks a breakfast bar, and your family wants to gather informally in the kitchen to enjoy coffee or grab a quick meal without going to the dining room table. Whatever the reason, one motivation for a kitchen remodel is to arrange the room to best suit the family’s needs.
8 | Your home feels stale
Your home is almost perfect but it needs a minor facelift or you are simply ready for a change. The current kitchen might be functional, updated and attractive, yet no longer appeals to you or mets your family’s needs. Maybe its time for gourmet kitchen with fancier amenities than accommodates the cook’s needs.
9 | Make your basement usable
Are you tired of using your basement as one big storage unit? Convert it into a living space, such as a media room, or even add a closet and a window for an extra bedroom, which will add square footage and increase the overall value of your home. Maybe you need more space, or a second bathroom would make things a lot easier during those busy mornings. Maybe your husband wants a man cave, or you would like a deck or a patio for outdoor entertaining. Renovating so that the home functions better is a good idea, as long as the upgrades don’t hurt the home’s value or decrease usable space.
10 | Avoid the stress of buying a new home
Searching for a new home can be stressful and time-consuming. Instead of spending months looking for that perfect home, upgrading your bathrooms and kitchen or removing that wall that’s been bugging you and add in a walk in closet. Fall in love with your home all over again.
