What is the True Value of a Remodel by Eric Gilbert

What is the True Value of a Remodel?
By Eric Gilbert
 
Generally, when a homeowner assigns value to a kitchen or bath remodel project, they consider how it affects their return on investment.

But one aspect that may not be top of mind is what effect the remodel can have on the homeowner’s own lifestyle – now. Remember, as the homeowner it’s important to place value on your personal experience your home, your joy of living.

Certainly future-selling power and sales value is important to consider, but have you considered you?

When approaching a kitchen or bath remodel project, take time to think about what impact the remodel will have on your lifestyle and comfort in the home. In the kitchen, for instance, would simply replacing outdated appliances and countertops affect your lifestyle? If the changes you make create a more comfortable environment, and result in you being more interested in the enjoyment of cooking at home, then simply giving your home a “facelift” is a solution to consider.

But if updating is not enough and your kitchen makes the thought of cooking undesirable, then a full kitchen remodel may be on the menu.

Take into account how many times you eat out in a month. Is it simply because it’s more convenient, or is the reason because you cannot face your kitchen? How much do you spend per month on restaurants and take-outs instead of cooking at home? Could that value be better spent elsewhere, say towards a pleasant kitchen conducive to your cooking needs?

The benefits of a newly remodeled kitchen may surprise you. The joy of preparing meals in your own kitchen, tailored to suit your needs and preferences, and the added value of providing healthier foods for your family are just a few. At home, you can create your own cuisine, fitted to your family’s dietary tastes and needs while relaxing to your favorite music. Or it might even turn out to be a fun family time together.

When considering a remodel, your lifestyle should be a top priority. After all, your home is a haven and space to be enjoyed daily. Consider it a priority to follow through with the correct and proper planning of your kitchen or bath remodeling project. Not only can it provide the best return on your investment, should you decide to sell your home, but the benefits of a well-designed home will be enjoyed now by the present owner … you.
