For most homeowners, there comes a time when you start thinking about the “what ifs” of remodeling your home. It may be that you want a larger bathroom, need to add on an extra bedroom, or want to do that kitchen remodeling project that will turn your space from functional but bland to professional and beautiful. Regardless of the project, chances are, you have spent a bit of time daydreaming and thinking about the ways you can use that space, and better yet, add resale value to your home.
Speaking of resale value, keep in mind when it comes to adding money to your sell price, the 2 most sought after home remodeling projects are those done to the kitchen and the master bathroom. However, any home upgrade, but especially a bath or kitchen makeover, should be approached with several parameters and considerations. After all, the goal is to be able to sell the home and get as much out of as possible. If you are considering a remodeling project, then these elements need to be a part of design stage:
· Be careful about creating a space that is designed using all the trends and styles of the day. Architectural styles, like those in fashion world, change. You don't want your home to be dated. To make the most of your remodel monies keep structural, architectural, and key elements neutral in design.
· Come up with a plan and stick to it. You will make your construction team frustrated, and will add to your cost by making frequent changes once they have started the work.
· Be sure you understand the work process. Talk to the contractor and know what to expect, when.
· Don't skimp on counter space! This is especially important in a bathroom or kitchen remodeling project.
· When possible, use natural light wherever you can. Large windows, skylights, etc. are all vital elements of a room design.
· Make a list of the things your design Must Have as well as the things you can live without. This will help you narrow down what your new space needs to be like.
