The Benefits of Kitchen Remodeling

Many consider the kitchen the heart of the home, as this is where the family gathers to prepare their meals. Oftentimes, the kitchen is used for various other purposes also, such as for doing homework or having a family meeting, thus it needs to be a fully functional room and one that draws people in. When the time comes for a kitchen makeover in Fairfax, VA, however, many families hesitate. They wonder if the money they will need to spend to get the kitchen of their dreams will be worth it in the long run. There are numerous benefits associated with kitchen remodeling, and following are a few of these benefits.
Kitchen remodeling increases the value of the residence

Kitchen remodeling increases the value of the residence, thus homeowners can expect to recoup anywhere from 68 to 75 percent of the money they spend redoing this room, as reported by Remodeling Magazine. When compared to other remodeling projects in the home, the kitchen is one of the best in terms of recouping the money spent on the renovation when the home is sold. Furthermore, many home buyers base their decision on the kitchen. They tend to look at it first and last and are often willing to overlook problems in other areas of the home if they fall in love with this room. This doesn't even take into account the fact that the homeowner can see for him or herself what they like and dislike about the new kitchen, such as the granite countertops or tile floor, even if the home is being sold right away. This information may be of great help in the future.

Homeowners now have more options.

Thanks to advances in kitchen design, homeowners now have more options. For those who are on a limited budget, for example, kitchen cabinet refacing may be an option as opposed to replacing all of the kitchen cabinets. The kitchen can be modified to an open floor plan, allowing parents to see children in other rooms, or a kitchen island may be added to provide more room for food preparation or to give the children somewhere to sit and do their schoolwork while the parents make dinner.

Many homeowners choose to upgrade their appliances.

During the remodeling process, many homeowners choose to upgrade their appliances. Although some hesitate due to the cost of updating appliances, the fact that many new units are more energy efficient than one from just a few short years ago needs to be considered. The new appliances help to keep energy costs down, thus saving the homeowner money month after month once the kitchen remodeling project in Alexandria, VA is completed. Any time the appliances in a kitchen are more than ten years old, it's time to consider replacing them for this reason alone.

Encourages the family to spend more time in the home preparing and eating meals

Kitchen remodeling encourages the family to spend more time in the home preparing and eating meals. A cramped, outdated kitchen can leave homeowners discouraged and wanting to avoid the room at all costs, and a complete renovation can resolve this issue. The money saved may be put toward paying off any balance of the kitchen remodeling loan, if one is taken out, and will help to save money in the future too.

Kitchen renovations allow for more space to be created in the home

Kitchen renovations allow for more space to be created in the home. The space may be used to store utensils, dishes, or small appliances, or it may be used for a variety of other purposes. Do children seem to gather in the kitchen and end up leaving their stuff everywhere? During the kitchen design process, parents can make a space for these items so they aren't left all over the room to get lost or damaged. A pantry can be added for food storage or a trash can may be hidden in a cabinet as opposed to being left out in plain view. It's all a matter of what the homeowner wants and needs from the storage space in their home.

Once homeowners see the results of a kitchen remodeling project in Arlington, VA, they'll likely want to move to other areas of the home. Deciding which area to work on next can be a challenge. The master bedroom should be a place of comfort and relaxation, yet guests spend most of their time in the living room. Many homeowners, however, opt to move to the bathroom next, as this is one room that gets frequent use by all family members and guests.

Provides a 54 to 65 percent return on value

Very few home renovation projects provide a 100 percent return on investment, and some projects even lead to a home losing value, such as when a swimming pool is added. Thankfully, bathroom remodeling in Alexandria, Virginia typically provides a 54 to 65 percent return on value, which is far better than many projects homeowners opt to undertake. When determining if this is a worthwhile home improvement project, homeowners need to remember that the first two rooms potential buyers tend to look at are the kitchen and bathroom. For this reason, this project should always be one that is debated when renovations are to take place.

Increase the energy efficiency

Renovating the bathroom provides the homeowner the opportunity to increase the energy efficiency of his or her residence. Replacing old toilets with newer ones that use fewer gallons per flush can significantly save on water bills, and the same is true of replacing outdated shower heads with low flow versions that have become available over the years. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency reports that an estimated ten percent of homeowners have now upgraded this room in their home, making use of energy-efficient fixtures and appliances in the process. As a result, they have saved an estimated $1.5 billion in energy costs, not to mention 70 billion gallons of water.  The planet definitely benefits as a result.

Look and feel much bigger

Bathrooms tend to be on the small side, but this doesn't mean they have to be lacking in space. There are numerous ways to expand the storage in your bathroom by adding features like wall storage or open shelving. With a few changes in the room, a tiny area can be made to look and feel much bigger, and everyone who uses the room will be sure to appreciate this.

Some luxury to this functional room

Add some luxury to this functional room. Although people don't choose to spend countless hours in the bathroom, like they do in other parts of the home, they may wish to do so when modern features are added. Imagine bathing in a Jacuzzi or sitting on a heated toilet seat when the temperatures drop. Both are possibilities when a bathroom is renovated, and there are countless others that can make this room a place of comfort for all.

bathroom clean and hygienic

Thanks to new developments in building materials, it has become easier to keep a bathroom clean and hygienic. During the bathroom remodeling Falls Church, VA, make sure to request wall boards that resist mold and mildew. Upgrade to a new shower liner that is easier to care for or opt for a shower surround for the same reason.

Tub-to-shower conversion

When walk-in tubs are needed for a family member, this option can be added. Some families are looking for a tub-to-shower conversion or a barrier free shower. The key to a successful renovation project is to determine a budget, prioritize the desired amenities, and begin the design process from there. This ensures the homeowner gets a bathroom they love at a price they can afford.
