How To Know When It’s Time To Remodel Your Home…

Home remodeling is expensive and sometimes inconvenient for you and your family. However, if space doesn’t function well for your needs or it is unattractive it may be time to think about remodeling. Just think of the many hours you spend in your home. With social restrictions we have experienced this year, more homeowners realize they are ready to undertake a remodeling project to make their home more attractive and functional. Here are a few suggestions to schedule a renovation when necessary…

Has Your Lifestyle Changed?

Families change offer the years and your home should change along with it. A casual, eat-in kitchen suits your young children better than a formal dining room. Added bathrooms make morning manageable for a large family. Expanded closets allow you to organize children’s items. But if the kids have moved ut it might be time to upsize the dining room and convert bedrooms to hobby rooms.

Are You In An Older Home That Needs Remodeling?

You may want to add more efficient building material such as blown foam insulation and triple glazed windows. Your older home may need an update so that it suits your needs and style. A full house remodeling allow you to change the home’s material, layout, and appearance. Taking advantage of affordable options to renovate your home can result in increased property value and more equity over the years as well as a home that is cleaner, more attractive and better suited to your family.

How To Tell If Your Home Is Not Working For You?

The following are a few things that show you need house remodeling…

  • Need More Space – Items sitting out on countertops and on the floors in various rooms indicate you need storage. Closets, a kitchen pantry, garage storage can happen. With a full renovation, you can create the space needed.
  • Need Larger Rooms – Do you feel crowded when you sit down at the dining table? Do you have to constantly move furniture to get into a closet or open a window? Enlarging a room or relocation of an entryway or elongating a wall all offer a more comfortable and convenient use of space.
  • Old or Broken Windows – New windows and skylights can add instant warmth and charm to even the darkest room of your home
  • Uncomfortable Temperatures – Do you need new insulation, roof vents, and flooring for better insulation and less wasted energy? Those things could be the reason for feeling dry and cold in wintertime and warm and humid in the summer.
  • Bad Configuration – Would you like to change the house layout or design? Maybe you would like to move the washer and dryer out of the basement and onto the first floor. Or enlarge the bathroom to take some of the stress out of your morning routine. A new house remodeling can include design work for your convenience and comfort.

Would You Like a Remodeled Kitchen?

Remodeling your kitchen will help boost the resale of your home in the future. Homeowners who renovate their kitchens can often see up to 90% of the cost added onto their home value when it’s done. This all depends on where you live, how much you’ve invested, the details of your renovation, and when you sell. The kitchen isn’t just a place to cook and eat. It’s the beating heart of any home. This is where family and friends congregate during parties, where midnight snack discussions take place, homework gets done, and major decisions are made. Kitchen remodels are the number one room that is renovated. A few ideas would be taller deeper cabinets. A smaller center island offers more space for foot traffic. Enlarging windows or adding a skylight can brighten up the kitchen. Updated flooring and new stone counters are easier to keep clean and less likely to hold germs and bacteria. Built-in shelving and cabinetry make storage, tools, and kitchen supplies more accessible.

Does Your Bathroom Need An Update?

The following are some things that you might discuss with a remodeling contractor…

  • Bathtub – If you do not use your bathtub replace it with a walk-in shower for added space. Add a spa bench in the shower for convenience
  • Shelving – Cut out the wall between wall studs this created storage is great and will fit even in the smallest bathroom. Use decorative baskets to hide away unsightly items.
  • Skylights – Skylights in a second story bath create a light and bright look.
  • Bathroom Size – If you can bump out a wall and expand the footprint of the bath do so. You could add a vanity area, walk-in linen closet, or other such feature.

Do You Want to Add Style To Your Home?

Does your home seem dark, dim, uninviting, or just not to your style? The following are some ideas for adding style…

  • Flooring – Upgraded flooring adds instant appeal to any room.
  • Windows – Add a new look to your house with new windows. Add a bay or bow window or an over-sized picture window. This adds instant charm to the home.
  • Staircase – If it is possible to open up a staircase by removing a wall it will offer a grand upscale look.
  • Ceilings – If your upstairs rooms are no longer needed remove the ceiling of the 1st floor and create an elevated or cathedral ceiling. This would also allow for larger windows and skylights.
  • Changing surfaces – Repaint the fronts of your kitchen cabinets. Add new tile in the bathroom and upgraded flooring can make space seem like new.
