To me, the most important rooms in a house are the kitchen and the bathroom. These are two rooms where we tend to spend a lot of time, for one reason or another, and making sure they have a pleasant atmosphere, efficient design, and maximized functionality, is a huge part of having the best home possible.
If you are on the fence about whether or not a kitchen or bath remodel is worth the time and money, let me hit you with this quick list of reasons why you probably should consider pulling the trigger on the remodel.
1. Boost Your Home Value
Any realtor will tell you that two of the biggest selling points that make or break a home sale are the kitchen and bathroom. In fact, remodeling your kitchen and bathroom are less like spending money, and more like investing it. It is common knowledge that homes that have recently undergone kitchen and bath remodeling sell for more money and sell much faster than homes that have not. Even if you are not planning to sell anytime soon, you will be able to enjoy the benefits of a modern kitchen and bath in the interim, and still have a more modern home to offer when you finally do decide to sell.
2. Take Care of All Those Persistent Problems
Unless your kitchen or bath has been remodeled recently, you probably have any number of problems, both minor and major, that have accumulated over the years. A full remodel is a great way to get a fresh start and take care of all of those lingering issues all in one quick go. This is a convenient way to save time and money on calling out teams to fix each problem individually as you get around to it.
3. Increased Space and Storage
Over the years, you've probably started to accumulate a bunch of stuff. Owning a home is a great way to have random items start piling up in your home. Pretty soon all of your storage space is used up and things start to pile up on any available surface. This problem is only compounded in homes with growing families.
By remodeling your kitchen and bath, you can take the opportunity to add new space for all those appliances and random items that are commonly found in either of those rooms. It's amazing what a few extra cabinets can do for keeping a clean house and happy family.
4. Personal Sanctuary
This may seem like it would only apply to the bathroom, but I like to cook and I find that working in an efficient, homey kitchen is just as relaxing as luxuriating in a bathtub in a gorgeous bathroom. By personalizing these two very important spaces in your home, you can create an area that is useful for more than just it's given function. Everyone could use a little getaway, even if it's just to another room in the house.
5. You Just Want a Change!
There's no need to justify remodeling your kitchen or bath. Sometimes you're simply tired of looking at the same old thing every day. Embrace that, and take the opportunity to get all of the previously mentioned benefits in addition to a lovely change of scenery!
There are as many reasons to remodel your kitchen or bath as there are people. These are just the reasons I feel it is a good idea, and I'm sure you probably have questions you would like answered regarding your own personal reasons.
