There are really two main reasons to upgrade the look of your home. The first one is you’re tired of the way it looks or it’s not functioning the way you need it to. In other words it was a great fit when you bought it, but it just doesn’t work anymore and you’ve outgrown it.
The second is there has been some type of damage or the home is deteriorating. The deterioration of homes is inevitable – especially since we are in Florida and a great way to slow the deterioration process is by renovating.
Check our list below to see if you need verification that YES, it’s time to remodel or renovate your home.
1. The House Has A Dated Look and Feel
The house having a very “dated” feel lowers the value of your home. This usually means you have a chopped-up floor plan with small rooms instead of open floor plans that homeowners demand in today’s market.
When it’s time to sell, you can increase the selling price if you have at least an updated interior. Remember, the kitchen and the bathroom tend to look the most out of date the quickest, so it’s best to start with these rooms.
2. Your Home Isn’t Functional Anymore
Does your home feel cramped even after you’ve re-organized? When your home is uncomfortable to be in it’s time for a remodel; especially if your family is expecting a new member or you are becoming empty nesters. A home that is functional and meets the needs of the family is a comfortable home.
3. There is Never Enough Storage
If you’re storing pots and pans in your oven or closets and things fall out every time you open the cabinets – it’s time for a kitchen remodel. Adding storage to your kitchen can keep you organized and clutter free. The newer kitchen construction designs are focused on sleek storage designs and functionality.
4. The Tiles are Detaching
The detachment of tiles means the grout is wearing off and this typically happens in the bathrooms and kitchens. This could be because of old age, or there could be a more serious foundation problem.
5. It’s Time to Re-paint
Paint lasts about 10 years, so if it’s chipping or has a dingy look then it’s time to repaint the inside or outside of your home. During this time, you should reassess any other external factors that could be affecting the value of your home.
6. Pests have Moved In
The presence of rats and termites can cause a lot of damage. Usually, if these pests have moved in and caused an infestation, the house was built with low quality materials. If there is an infestation, you need to take care of that problem first and then renovate to repair any damage and improve the status of your home.
Remodeling or renovating will increase the value of your home and make it easier to sell. Open floor plans and updated kitchens and bathrooms will sell a home. However, once you update the look of your home – take some time and enjoy it first before putting it on the market!
