3 Areas of the House That Are Worth the Cost of a Remodel

As a homeowner, it can be difficult to decide what to prioritize once you decide to invest in improving your property. Weighing a potential project’s impact on your home equity against how much it will improve your quality of life is tricky. While not every change has to be made with profit in mind, it’s always important to understand how the changes you’re making will affect the value of your home. In addition, as the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, it’s also worth it to consider how functional your space is and whether or not you’d like to be able to do more at home in the future.

Remodeling isn’t easy, but it can be incredibly worth it to create the house you’ve always imagined living in. If you’re not sure where to get started, read on to learn about three areas of your house that are worth the cost of a remodel.

1. Partial Kitchen Remodel


There’s a reason kitchen remodels are so popular. A functional and aesthetically pleasing kitchen is typically a major priority for prospective homebuyers, in addition to being a significant quality of life upgrade for everyone at home. However, it’s easy to let a kitchen remodel get out of hand and end up spending more money than the room will ever add in value to your home’s equity.

Calling in a kitchen remodeling company is a good idea if you want to work with someone who can ensure you stay on budget and find quality materials at a reasonable price. Even without a full remodel, upgrading your appliances and fixtures like cabinets and countertops can make a big difference.

2. Landscaping


You may not be aware of it but landscaping holds its value better than almost any other home upgrade or improvement. If your front and back yard have unused space or could use a pick-me-up, it might be a good idea to put exterior upgrades and lawn design near the top of your priority list.

Outdoor remodeling can mean a lot of different things, from putting in a pool or an outdoor kitchen to focusing on gardening and landscape design. Whatever your preferences are, investing in creating a beautiful outdoor environment is worth it. Outdoor improvements also have the added benefit of improving the curb appeal of your home should you choose to sell one day.

3. Bathroom Renovation


When renovating, it’s important to focus on the rooms that you use the most, and the bathroom is certainly one of them in any household. Much like a kitchen remodel, a bathroom renovation can get too expensive and out of hand quickly, so it’s important to work with a contractor and stick to your budget if you want to ensure that your upgrades stay profitable. Many bathroom remodeling services will advise you that a complete overhaul is often cost-ineffective and unnecessary. You can design a functional and aesthetically pleasing bathroom space without breaking the bank.

There isn’t a one size fits all solution to home improvement, but there are several areas that are always smart to remodel. High-traffic areas that serve an essential function like bathrooms and kitchens are always high priority remodeling targets. Landscaping is another surprisingly good bet, not least of all because of its impact on the curb appeal of your house.

Balancing upgrades that meaningfully improve your quality of life with additions that will appeal to prospective future buyers can be tough, but an interior design expert can help you find the right solution for your space. While it’s never easy to make decisions about remodeling your home, taking the time to make the right choices is essential for anyone who wants to protect their home’s value and make a profit when it comes time to sell one day.
