I’ve been a homeowner most of my adult life. I love the entire process of remodeling and completely understand the desire to make your kitchen bigger, or combine the living room and dining room for extra play space for the kids. I believe a house isn’t a home unless it feels like home. If you’re here reading this, you must be searching for a way to make your house feel more like home. Let me show you some great ways to remodel that won’t break the bank, but will make a huge impact on your family life. The biggest thing to remember when planning to remodel is to do it for yourself and your family. It doesn’t matter if you have a formal dining room if you never use it in lieu of the breakfast nook or bar. What’s the use of a full basement if it isn’t finished and usable? Sure, it can collect boxes and be a dry storage area, but think about all of that space that could be put to great use.
Why Should You Remodel Your Home?
Homeowners choose to remodel for a variety of reasons. You may just want a change, which I completely understand, or you may want to modernize or customize some aspect of your home. New kitchen appliances should always be accompanied by new kitchencabinets, a new counter top, all new hardware, and new flooring. Why? Because you’re into it now, and if you don’t do the rest now, you won’t be happy just swapping one fridge for another. I know this from experience.
Remodel instead of selling – Remodel your existing home instead of going through the headache of selling and purchasing a new one. You’d be amazed at how adding a room changes the entire dynamic of your home. That extra space suddenly becomes an amazing, exciting new land full of opportunity. Take the opportunity to knock out a wall here or there to expand other rooms while moving an entire room to the new land (room).
A lot of people choose to remodel their home as their family grows; a new baby is born; children become teenagers; children become parents and you need more space for grandchildren because you remodeled after the teenagers left the roost and you aren’t willing to give up your hobby room. Whatever the reason; I get it. Don’t give up one part of your lifestyle, something that makes you happy, just for more space in the house. Create more space. Pretty simple solution when I put it that way, right?
