Maximizing your home value
For many people, remodeling is a calculated move that is meant to maximize their home value so they get more money when they sell their home. In fact, remodeling investments are growing as homeowners expect to recoup their remodeling costs at resale time. In addition, remodeled homes have a tendency to sell faster and for top dollar in contrast to homes with outdated kitchens and baths. However, reselling is not the only reason for home updates.
Your home is an investment
Many homeowners today are planning to remodel their present homes rather than sell them off to shop for better homes. This might have to do with the recession, whose effects will continue to be felt for a while. However, remaining in your present home also has its advantages, especially the fact that you get to save on the amount of time that you would have spent searching for a new home. Homeowners that opt for home remodeling also tend to be more pleased at the end of the day since they remain in familiar surroundings.
When it’s required
Occasionally, remodeling your home is necessary, particularly when you need to make more room for your growing family. It may be something as straight forward as needing more closet space, or trying to find the best design to use the space you already have. After the kids move out empty nesters often decide to repurpose their kids rooms. Green remodeling is another growing trend that comes with tax breaks and rebates, in addition to cutting down your energy costs and boosting your home value.

Worn cabinets, dated appliances and cracked countertops are all indicators that you need to think about kitchen remodeling, but there are many other reasons to upgrade your kitchen space. One major consideration, for instance, is whether you are making the most efficient use of your available space. While a gorgeous kitchen is nice, it should also be one of the most efficient rooms in the home. In order to achieve this you have to take many different factors into consideration.
For whatever reason the importance of kitchen lighting can sometimes be neglected. Relocating your windows, for instance, may let more sunlight into the room.
Remodeling your kitchen would also be recommended if you have children or are in the process of extending your family. Sometimes an outdated kitchen can even be a safety concern for small kids if it included older appliances and outdated designs. If you want to host more parties in your home you may discover that you need to upgrade to a more open kitchen design to allow greater social interaction between guests. You may also want to redesign your kitchen as you grow older to make it less dangerous for you and others.
According to real estate professionals, the kitchen holds the greatest opportunity for swaying home purchasing decisions among prospective buyers. This means that a beautiful kitchen could very well be the difference between a immediate sale and a home that remains on the market. If you plan to renovate your kitchen, it is advisable to make a checklist of all the minor and major problems as well as the aspects you would like to add. If you cannot change everything you want to, it is important to prioritize and decide what among your wants and needs is most important.
Since more homeowners are remaining in their homes longer, bathroom upgrading is becoming more prevalent simply because problems arise that ultimately need repairing. Most people start off their day in their bathroom, and having to look at the same cracked tiles every morning is far from ideal. Not to mention that bathroom fixtures can leak or break and over time lead to much more costly issues. Water damage can be an expensive issue, and mold can lead to serious medical problems.
Having a modernized, recently renovated bathroom can certainly influence a potential buyers decision when viewing your home. This means that investing in bathroom remodeling could really help your home close faster, and in most cases, you also get to recoup a large percentage of your original investment. On the other hand, resale value is not the only reason to remodel your bathroom. You may have no plans to move, but simply want your own quiet space. A custom built shower or bath tub makes for a stress-free time when preparing for your day or unwinding from a busy workday.
The term unfinished basement has become synonymous with squandered space. If you are fortunate enough to have a basement you really should try to make use of it. Basement finishing honestly ranks right up there with bathroom and kitchen remodeling in improving your home’s resale value as well as making it more appealing to prospective buyers. The possible creative and functional uses of your basement are unlimited, and in comparison to other traditional areas in your home, the basement offers the greatest usage variety and can even be used as a multi-purpose area. There really is no reason to let your basement go unused.
Get professional help
The reason so many people leave their basement unfinished is that the process can be complicated. When you renovate a basement you have to take into consideration electrical, plumbing, HVAC, drywall installation, and even flooring. As a result, it is really important to work with highly skilled experts like you would any other major renovating project. Having said that, this is one of the best kept secrets in space expansion and delivers significant advantages from a financial standpoint as well as enhancing your quality of life.
When remodeling your bathroom or kitchen, you want to target the elements that will give you the greatest value for your money. With many different styles, materials and colors, countertops are one such item that can make a huge impact on the overall appearance of your home. Countertops are available in a wide variety of alternatives. Recently the more popular choices include glass, granite, wood, butcher block, cambria, marble, concrete, corian, soapstone, and laminate.
You can make your countertop choice easier by considering a number of factors, including durability, clean-up and maintenance. You also need to make sure that the countertop you choose will match your design preferences. What’s more, while every countertop component comes with its practical and aesthetic benefits, you still need to figure out whether each fits into your layout and more importantly budget. For instance, we can all agree that marble countertops are simply gorgeous. However, because of the premium price point they may not fit into every remodeling budget. Granite countertops, while just as beautiful also carry a similar cost. Concrete and wood in contrast can be a visually pleasing alternative which are much more budget friendly.
