Whenever we embark on something new, it’s important to focus in on why we are making a change. Remodeling your home is no different. What is your “why?” in remodeling your home?
While there may be several reasons to remodel your home, chances are, there’s one reason that compelled you enough to take the leap. As you start the remodeling process, it’s essential to keep your why in the forefront of your mind.
Here are just some of the why answers we encounter regularly:
I want to modernize an outdated space.
You may be wanting to tear down walls to create an open floor plan or remove outdated wood features. Remodeling can be a wonderful way to give your old home some new life without the hassle of moving.
I want extra organization in my home.
This is particularly common in kitchen and bath remodels. Whether you’re fighting to make room for pots and pans or simply wishing that the space you had was designed with your needs in mind, the need for better organization can be a compelling reason to remodel.
I want a home where I can age in place.
Wanting to make the home you love be an easy place to age is a very compelling reason to remodel. If this is you, consider converting space on your first floor (maybe a den or formal dining room that doesn’t get much use) into a master bedroom to give yourself the option of avoiding the stairs or maybe transforming your bathroom to include a walk-in or roll-in shower. Changes like these can take a space from being simply manageable to a home that allows you to live life to the fullest.
I love my house, but there are a few niceties I wish it had.
When you moved in, did you say, “I love this house, but I wish…?” If so, consider reaching out to make those dreams a reality. Whether you wanted a walk-in shower, a jacuzzi bathtub, or a kitchen island, there are many little niceties and upgrades that can be included in a remodel. Take your home from like to love by making those changes!
