Are you ready to start that remodeling project? You could add value to your home, as well as improving your standard of daily living. With some thought and careful planning, a home remodeling project can be a great investment. You will need to design appropriately for the space you have to work with. And you’ll want to stay within the value range for your neighborhood. You won’t want to over-do it and price yourself right out of the local market.
Estimates on the returns to be expected on home improvements vary. You can do your own research and decide what you want to believe. But most sources agree that bathroom and kitchen remodeling projects are worth doing, both for living pleasure and for resale value. You’ll almost certainly get the pleasure of an upgrade without losing value, and you might make some pretty serious gains on your investment.
One of the surest bets is a kitchen upgrade. New counter tops, possibly some stylish granite, will add appeal and usability as well. An excellent new garbage disposal unit will be a pleasure to use and a good selling point as well. A reverse osmosis water treatment system will give you and your family great water for drinking and cooking, and might be a deal-clincher.
For California homes, an outdoor kitchen is a great idea. Living where the weather is great for grilling so much of the year, it makes sense to upgrade the grilling area. A sink will make cooking and cleaning easier. A bar with its own sink might not be bad either, and some refrigerator capacity will be enjoyed by all.
A bathroom upgrade is a good idea. If you have only a tub, adding a separate shower is a pleasing project. If you could upgrade your tub to one of those spa-type tubs, that would be a fine feature. Most everyone appreciates a double sink as well. Then you could consider one of those new tankless water heaters. Those are great in so many ways.
Plan ahead. Do your research. Consult the family, the financial advisor, and a plumbing professional. Then you’ll be read to reap the benefits of a home remodeling project.
