Those in the throes of a grand remodel must ask themselves this very question concerning their decisions, because lets face it....remodels know how to wear out the seams in your pockets and before you know it, all of that lovely moola has said adios amigo and you had so much you still wanted to do! The reality is that you WILL have to spend a good chunk of change to make that remodel or your newly constructed home just how you wanted, but some wants/needs can be game changers or unfortunately....deal breakers. Your number one priority right at the start is to ask that very question.
Try these two tips to make sure you’re making game changing decisions in your home remodel. Focus first on these two inner aspects of your home, then work your way on to the other areas of your project.
The kitchen is where the housewife spends much of her time cooking, baking and experimenting on those secret recipes she’s so famous for. Its the place the party planner and social butterfly prepares their delectable treats for their guests to munch on. Or its simply where the family finds as a cozy, warm place to congregate for fun and fellowship. Every one is different but the consensus would be that most everyone wants a nice kitchen.
Although there are so many styles and color variations that one could talk about, sufficed to say the most important elements to hone in on are: up to date appliances, cabinetry, and last but not least elegant countertops.
Yet again, there are many options of colors and styles available in all three of these areas that can cater to every individual’s preference. That’s where you as the individual come in and put your own fingerprint on the home. It is worth bearing in mind that for the possibility of resale, neutral bases are a smart foundation to build off of in a kitchen.
Granite and quartz countertops are the leading choices today. For those who aim to resell in the future the fact that choosing either of these options will increase the appeal and probability of reaching a wider range of buyers. There is such a diverse selection of colors that its almost hard to decide on just one stone color! A growing trend is for the island to be one color and the perimeter countertops another complementing color. One could go so far as to say that your granite selection is a reflection of your own personality. So let people take a little peek into your soul.
Secondly, the bathroom(s) is majorly appealing component of a home. This is where one comes after a long hard day on the job to decompress under the warm streams of the shower, encased in rich solid granite, or a long relaxing soak in that spacious garden tub surrounded in a strip of complementing stone. Its at the double granite vanity that you stand beside that pretty girl or handsome guy as you brush your teeth and ready for bed.
Essentially, this is the place your heart calls home and within these walls you will live, love and learn. Thats the unique beauty of this otherwise ordinary building amongst the vast array of homes in the world...Its yours...unique to your tastes and preferences. So make every penny count to make it the way you want it within your means. Everyone has their wants and desires to implement into their home remodel or new construction, but most people have Mr. Budget straining on the reigns to keep in check those wild horses of want and desire. So again, the question you must always ask as you undertake this adventurous yet daunting task of remodeling or building your home is this : Game changer or deal breaker?
