During the renovation of the house
Homeowners remodel their homes for a variety of reasons, with a view to their own enjoyment and eventual resale value.
Some want to breathe new life into a home with an outdated floor plan. Baby boomers who want to stay in their homes as they age, as well as younger homeowners who are looking ahead, want to improve accessibility. And many homeowners want to add sustainable home features that also save money on utility bills.
One thing is clear: homeowners take their wish list to professional remodeling companies to implement.
Open yourself to new spaciousness
Open floor plans are still popular, and more and more homeowners are choosing to take out an interior wall or two to make the space feel bigger and more connected.
Remove a wall between the kitchen and a formal dining room and the newly opened space can breathe new life into the entire floor. Natural light comes in from more directions and family members who work in the kitchen or eat at the counter can interact with others who are watching TV or doing homework. Conversation takes on a new lightness, as friends can gather and move around more freely in the room.
Design for aging in place
Improving your home to better cope with aging can also be an improvement in style, usability, and comfort for all.
A bathroom upgrade where luxury meets universal design could include a large walk-in shower with zero threshold, a built-in teak bench or tile corner seat, and multiple shower heads, including a waist-high sprayer.
A new kitchen island can add an eye-catching look and adaptable amenities with multi-level countertops made of an easy-care, durable and attractive material such as quartz, a deep drawer for dishes and another one for the microwave and a sink.
Not only can remodeling your home make your family’s dream of a more comfortable and stylish home come true, but depending on the upgrades you choose, you can save on operating costs, improve air quality for better health, and increase the long-term value of your home At home.
Key improvements that can make a home more energy efficient include installing high efficiency windows and low flow faucets, replacing appliances and water heaters with Energy Star models, increasing or improving insulation quality, and installing a high efficiency HVAC system suitable for the area to be heated or cooled.
