Are you tired of having an outdated kitchen, old flooring and faucets that drip relentlessly no matter what you do? Does your bathroom still look like it did when you moved in more than 15 years ago?  Or maybe you’ve decided to move out altogether and start fresh, but are finding that your dated home is making the process of selling even more difficult? 

Maybe it’s time you consider some other options and use October to celebrate National Kitchen and Bath Month with a new remodel!

A bath or kitchen remodel is one of the best ways to increase value of a home and provide the greatest return on an investment.  When contemplating a remodeling project there are two things to consider – budget and purpose.  How much do you want to spend and why do you want to remodel?  The answers will help guide you through the rest of the process.

If your intent is to make your home more marketable, visit homes that are at your price point in your area and check out their kitchens and bathrooms.  How does yours compare?  Do you simply need new countertops and sink fixtures, or is the entire room a turn-off to prospective buyers?  You will want to talk to a realtor to determine how much you need to invest to get a return, while still keeping your asking price affordable. 

If you plan to stay in your home, think about what frustrates you most as you go about your routine and take notes.  Make dinner and jot down what changes would make it easier and more efficient.  Different layout?  An island?  Cabinets reconfigured?  If it’s the bath that needs updating, would you change out the shower to a bath or create two separate spaces?  Maybe it feels overcrowded and simply replacing the vanity with a smaller one is all that you need. 

Truly, your options for remodeling your bathroom or kitchen are endless.  Just make sure you plan and budget ahead and consult an expert to ensure the job is done to your satisfaction.

 

 …always try to be kind to each other and to everyone else.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
