It doesn’t matter whether you’re doing a full top-to-bottom kitchen remodel or simply a spruce-up for your bathroom. If you don’t know certain terms, it can lead to serious miscommunication with your designers and/or contractors, costly mistakes and post-project woes.
Have you recently noticed that you could use a potential face-lift in certain rooms? Maybe your appliances are out of date, or you need just a bit more cabinet space? If so, it could be that a kitchen or bathroom remodel would take care of it.
Both of these spaces are areas that you use multiple times a day, especially with larger households, so they receive more wear than other rooms might. You could easily redo these spaces twice or three times as often as any other.
The short answer is yes, but you may not recoup all of the money you spent. A kitchen remodel generally has an ROI (Return on Investment) of 70 to 80% so if you spent $20,000, you might see $16,000 added to the sales price.
You can recoup upwards of 50% to the cost of a bathroom renovation.
It’s so worth it, because you’ll be getting your dream kitchen; but a kitchen and bathroom remodel can drive you crazy!
Any renovation always takes longer than expected with unexpected problems and costs that seem to pop up from nowhere. What if your bathroom is the only one in the house? How do you shower? Your quality of life will be interrupted, and it’ll be enough to make your want to run away from home.
