Kitchens & Baths are the Key to Unlocking the VALUE!
When considering remodeling projects, the kitchen and master bathroom renovations will give you the biggest return on your investment. For decades, kitchens have been called the heart of the home. It is where people gather for meals, to share stories of the day, and to just hang out. When people entertain, the kitchen is typically where everyone congregates.
When remodeling the kitchen, countertops and cabinets are the best place to start. Replacing laminate countertops with granite or another solid surface gives the kitchen an updated look with enhanced value. Lower cabinets with pull-outs are an easy conversion option that can improve a kitchen and provide more storage. Newer kitchens often have deep drawers instead of cabinets that are used for pots and pans and other larger items. If you have room, add an island, which can provide additional workspace or a place to sit.
Master bathrooms have changed in the past several decades. Soaker tubs, with or without jets, are giving way to larger walk-in showers with multiple shower heads, benches and niches. Frameless glass showers may be a bit more costly but will enhance the look of your master bath. These days people are looking for bathrooms that are easier to keep clean. To do this, use larger tiles because there is less grout to maintain.
To save water, replace toilets with low-flow models with comfort-heights and elongated bowls. These are more comfortable and are more attractive to potential buyers.
Another way to add value to your home is through added storage space. It can be as simple as adding more shelving or perhaps expanding the footprint of the closet by taking space from an adjacent room.
Whether you plan to sell your house in the next year or intend to stay, consider remodeling. If you are not selling, you will appreciate the updates and changes. If you are selling, the money you invest will most likely pay off in a higher selling price.
