When it comes to any type of renovation, be it a kitchen and bathroom remodel, as the saying goes: you get what you pay for.

Well, check out the following list of 4 ways to add more value to your home via a kitchen redo.

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 Maybe your appliances are out of date, or you need just a bit more cabinet space?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.

Many people think of a backsplash as a decorative flourish and, thus, consider it something of an "extra" when undertaking their kitchen or bathroom remodeling projects. While a properly installed, well-thought-out backsplash can add an elegant touch to the interior design of these rooms, their purpose is more than simply aesthetic.
Here at David Waller Interiors, we are big fans of backsplashes, both for their aesthetic qualities and their functionality. Here's why.
How can you prepare for this, and other, unpleasant surprises? With the help from David Waller Interiors.
Whether it’s a countertop in a Deltona, FL kitchen that needs some remodeling, or a bathroom in Orange Beach that you plan to remodel for more storage, there will probably be some unexpected challenge.
Renovation is seldom a straight line, and budgeting isn’t just a simple matter of buying appliances or accessories. Your head might be filled of gorgeous decorating ideas from Pinterest or design magazines, but there can be things like a rotting sub-floor, a support wall that can’t be knocked down, insufficient electric systems, or ceiling heights that need to be raised.
Summertime is right around the corner. Feel free to cheer, it’s finally almost here! While our winters are indeed mild, there’s just something invigorating about the arrival of summer weather. It’s the happy start to a lovely season that sparks joy in many, and with it comes that sense of renewal; of wanting to update everything in our home.
One of the most rewarding and challenging aspects of interior design is making sure you are getting the most bang for your buck. A lot of times finding ways to shave off the costs of little things here and there, can open up resources to splurge on larger, more important things.
Kitchen and bathroom remodels aren't cheap, but if you know what you are doing, and you play your cards right, nothing is nonachievable! Clearly, planning is key. Here are some areas you should focus on when making those plans:
A remodel for the kitchen and bathroom can be wildly unique, depending upon the exact specifications of the homeowner. For instance, one might prefer an entire remodel of both spaces, from new paint and flooring, to new appliances. Other may prefer only a few changes in one or both spaces. The good news is, there’s no “wrong” way to remodel these spaces, as long as the final result is exactly what you want and need.
Remodeling isn’t always synonymous with a layout change. Any remodel can be pricey, whether it’s for the kitchen, and you might be surprised of the expenses incurred by the bathroom, already a small room.
Remember, when you don’t do a layout change, it means you keep certain major systems in place, such as gas, plumbing or electrical, which can be a real money-saver.
Spring is just around the corner, and that means the yearly Spring remodeling frenzy is about to kick into full gear. People all over are going to be on the hunt for the best kitchen and bathroom remodelers, and many of them will probably have questions about what it is they should even be looking for when choosing between them.
Home redesigns can send you into a veritable tizzy with endless design possibilities and style choices; you just don’t know what to do in the end! But, as we say in the interior design business, when in doubt, keep it classic. So, if you need a little inspiration with your kitchen or bathroom remodel, consider these beautiful ideas, with a twist on classic.
That’s a very good question, and there are certain improvements that will increase the value of your house, but before you do anything ask yourself two big questions to help you determine your priorities:
Question #1: Is the kitchen functional? This will help you determine whether you just want a refresh, or if it actually needs changes to make it workable. Aesthetic-only changes will generally add less than turning something into one of better function.
