No matter how old your home is or how it may currently look, there are always areas that can be improved upon. Sometimes you might just want a change. Other times extraneous problems such as plumbing or wiring faults may dictate that changes need to be made. Ideally, though, you do not want to wait for something adverse to happen before deciding to remodel. A good home renovation project can revitalize your home and rejuvenate your enthusiasm for living there. It can also bring about a much needed boost in resale value ahead of placing your home on the market. Let us examine some of the benefits that come with home remodeling.
The top reason for most folks to consider a home remodeling project is simple, increasing the comfort and livability level in the home. Everyone wants to feel “at home”, and taking charge and making the place your own, with your own personality and tastes reflected, is an appealing and rewarding project to take on. A warm and welcoming living space is somewhere that you and your family will look forward to spending time together. A revamped kitchen, with an open floor plan and added functionality, can mean a lot for the chef in the family. A tweaked bathroom design is perfect for additional privacy and relaxation. And a new dining room provides a welcoming area for your family to enjoy meals or games together. The remodel does not have to be extensive either. Sometimes just reworking the layout and fixtures can be enough to give your home a whole new presence.
Another reason for choosing to remodel your home is simply to create more living space for your family. In many cases, a remodel is a more cost-effective option than selling your home and moving to a larger one. It is also desirable if you like your current neighborhood, area schools, or are fortunate to be close to your job and do not wish to relocate. Sometimes just the addition of a new bedroom and corresponding bathroom can be a game changer.
It is important for every family member to have their own space. Living in close or cramped quarters can become tedious and trying after a while. If you have a lot of friends and enjoy entertaining, opening up the kitchen and living areas can accommodate that quite nicely.
One of the most common requests when planning a home remodel is the addition of new bathrooms, which is important if you have a lot of people under one roof. And it cannot be stressed enough, more bathroom facilities will add considerably to the resale value of the home.
A remodeled home also reduces the cost of maintenance and upkeep. Every structure will experience weathering over time and exposure to the elements, and those maintenance costs will only grow as the years pass. A remodel often helps to discover many of these problems and correct them, sometimes with more efficient windows or doors, improved piping, and higher grade roofing. The cost involved may end up being far less than having to continually address these problems over time.
In a similar vein, home remodeling projects can often pay for themselves over time by upgrading the aforementioned items, improving insulation, replacing the water heater, and using energy efficient appliances. You might be surprised at just how much better your electric bills are, and often home remodeling can provide the basis for a tax credit, allowing you to save money continuously for years to come. The return on investment is almost always a plus.
Another home remodeling benefit may come in the form of changes to your lifestyle. You may not find yourself going out quite as often as you did before once you have experienced the warmth and appeal of a newly renovated home. Some who were not into entertaining before suddenly start to do so. Having a home that you are proud of means you want to show it off, so you will likely end up having friends in more often. Reducing the time to feel the need to spend outside the home will actually result in putting money back in your pocket.
Of course, the single most obvious benefit of a home renovation is the enhanced resale value. We all want to get the most out of our homes when we decide to sell, and with the return on some renovation investments approaching 70 or 80%, a home remodel is almost certainly a strong move to make. The positives are twofold…you get to enjoy the newly remodeled home while you are in it, and it becomes a plus for you financially when you do decide to make a change.
