Ready To Remodel?
Home remodeling can be done for numerous reasons, but there are a few primary reasons why homeowners in Silverton are putting money aside to renovate their homes.
Maximizing your home value
One of the primary reasons people think about remodeling their home is so they make more money at the time of sale. In fact, remodeling investments are increasing as homeowners expect to recoup their remodeling costs at resale time. It shouldn’t be surprising that homes with outdated bath and kitchens are much harder to sell and can stay remain unsold for a very long time. Then again a higher resale value is not the only explanation why a homeowner would choose to renovate their home.
Your home is an investment
A number of homeowners these days are opting to remodel their current homes rather than selling them off to shop for better homes. Though the real estate market has recovered, some of the consequences of the recession are still being felt. Just the amount of time you save and stress you avoid by staying in your present home can make it a more attractive decision in the long term. When you remodel your home you get to make it just the way you want instead of trying to find what you want some place else. It truly is a much less upsetting situation, and has a tendency to lead to more contentment.
When it’s necessary
If you have a growing family, your house has to grow with it. That is when renovation is necessary. You may also need to enlarge your closet space to increase your storage area or make more practical use of the available space. After the kids move away empty nesters often decide to use their kids’ rooms for something else. With all the rebates and tax incentives, eco-friendly remodeling is also a new trend. It allows you to increase the value of your home while saving money on energy bills and reducing your impact on your environment.

Outdated appliances, warped cabinets and damaged countertops are all indications that you may need to consider remodeling your kitchen, but there are countless other reasons to upgrade your kitchen’s look. The efficiency with which you use your kitchen space is always worth taking into consideration. While a gorgeous kitchen is nice, it should also be one of the most efficient rooms in the house. In order to attain this you have to take many different facets into consideration.
Lighting is another critical detail in any kitchen. If you are not getting enough light you might want to consider moving the windows to allow more direct sunlight.
Remodeling your kitchen would also be recommended if you have children or are in the process of expanding your family. Keep in mind that dated kitchen designs and appliances may be dangerous for young children. If you want to do more entertaining in your home you may come to realize that you need to update to a more open kitchen design to allow greater social interaction between guests. But then, as you grow older you may decide to redesign your kitchen to increase its safety.
When talking with realtors they will all agree that out of every room in the house the kitchen makes the biggest impact on home buying decisions. This means that a beautiful kitchen could very well be the difference between a quick sale and a home that remains on the market. If you decide to redesign your kitchen step one is to make a list of all the items that you want to fix, and their order of importance as well. If you can’t change everything you want to, it is important to prioritize and determine what among your wants and needs is most important.
In the past few years the tendency has been to live in the same home for a longer time. This has resulted in bathroom remodeling being more common not only for appearance, but for function. Most people begin their day in their bathroom, and staring at the same chipped tiles every morning is less than ideal. Not to mention that bathroom fittings can leak or break and in time lead to much bigger issues. Water damage can be a pricey issue, and mold can lead to serious health issues.
Having a modernized, recently remodeled bathroom can positively 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 the majority of cases, you also get to recuperate a good portion of your investment. On the other hand, resale value is not the only reason to remodel your bathroom. You may have no thoughts of moving, but simply want your own quiet oasis. When you want to relax from a hectic day a custom built bath tub or shower can have a huge impact on your ability to relax.
The term unfinished basement has become synonymous with squandered space. If you are lucky 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 renovating in improving your home’s resale value in addition to making it more appealing to potential buyers. The possible creative and functional uses of your basement are infinite, and in comparison to other conventional spaces in your home, the basement offers the greatest usage variety and can even be used as a multi-purpose space. Since the space already is available, you might as well put it to use instead of wasting it.
Get professional help
The reason so many people leave their basement unfinished is that the process can be extremely difficult. When you remodel a basement you have to consider electrical, plumbing, HVAC, drywall installation, and even flooring. As such, it is really important to work with highly skilled pros like you would any other major remodeling project. Even so, this is one of the best kept secrets in space expansion and results in significant rewards from a financial standpoint as well as improving your quality of living.
When upgrading your kitchen or bathroom, you should target the features that will give you the greatest value for your money. Your countertops are one such component, and the good news is that they are available in as many colors, materials and finishes as you can imagine. Some of the most popular countertop choices that you could go for include granite, glass, butcher block, wood, cambria, marble, corian, concrete, laminate and soapstone.
You can make your countertop choice easier by considering a number of elements, including durability, clean-up and maintenance. Having said that, you have to balance the functionality of your countertops with visual appeals. Your countertops have to fit into the general design look of your home. Once you have found the balance between function and form, your ultimate decision is in regards to your remodeling budget. For instance, we can all agree that marble countertops are simply breathtaking. 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 price tag. Wood and concrete on the other hand can be a visually pleasing alternative which are much more budget friendly.
