HOW TO CHOOSE WHICH SPACE TO RENOVATE FIRST
Take in the whole picture. Before you focus on individual rooms in your home remodel, it’s important to assess the structural condition of your home first. If you haven’t had your roof inspected, schedule that now. A roof inspection will reveal any leaks you may have in your roof, as well as any other maintenance issues, such as critters living in your chimney. If you’ve noticed any cracks in your walls, this could be an indication of a foundation issue. It’s a good idea to have your home regularly inspected by a certified home inspector or other specialist every few years. Houses are strong, but not invincible.
What’s missing? Even if your whole house needs a complete renovation, ask yourself what is missing. Do you need more closet space in the master bedroom? Are you missing an adequate coat closet in the entryway? Is there a wall that has been pestering you for a while now, and it either needs to go or needs a window added? It can be easy to start with your wants first (such as a custom kitchen design by Showcase Kitchens), but you should start with your needs. By doing this, you’ll find your list will naturally be narrowed down.
Which rooms do you use the most? For most people, the answer to this question is the master bedroom, the master bathroom, the kitchen, and the living room or TV room. Next, narrow it down to if there are any problem areas or irksome areas to these rooms that you just want to fix. For example, if your master bathroom only has one sink and you really need two sinks, this might be the place to start. If you use your kitchen only some of the time, this might not be the place to start. However, if you love to cook and your current kitchen is driving you crazy, it might be a good idea to contact Showcase Kitchens for a custom kitchen design quote if you are in the Long Island area.
Remember, home renovations can be overwhelming, especially if you have a lot you want to do. By narrowing it down and tackling one space renovation at a time, you’ll have less stress and, slowly but surely, you’ll have the home of your dreams.
SHOWCASE KITCHEN’S TAKE
Showcase Kitchens is a custom kitchen designer in Long Island. We love kitchens; we love creating custom kitchens; we love seeing your face when the process is done, and you have a space renovation for life.
If you’re on the fence about which space to renovate first, Showcase Kitchens in Long Island suggests you analyze your decision based off cost to remodel versus return on your investment. Traditionally, kitchen remodels will garner you the most return on the value of your home. Kitchen bathroom remodels are a close second. This is because the kitchen is the heart of your home and family; it’s where you nurture your family with life-giving food; it’s where you gather your family for important conversations and decisions; it’s where you celebrate life’s milestones, such as birthdays and graduations; it’s where you gather family and friends on the holidays and express your gratitude for all you’ve been given; it’s where your heart lies.
Bathroom remodels are second because it’s where we spend a lot of our time as well. We want to have space to store our most intimate belongings, space to move around in, and space to be comfortable when we need to take a long, relaxing bath at the end of a hard week’s work. Showcase Kitchens also remodels bathrooms as well.
In the end, the first step is the most important. Reach out to us for a free custom kitchen design consultation. We can give you an idea and help you to hone your vision for your space. This may help you make your final decision as well. Below, we’ll go over some of the major reasons to renovate your kitchen.
REASONS TO RENOVATE YOUR KITCHEN
Increase home’s value. We briefly touched on this before, but it’s worth mentioning again. With a custom kitchen design by Showcase Kitchens, your home’s value will go up.
Modern look. Let’s face it, wallpaper from the 1970s doesn’t cut it anymore. Giving your home a modern look will not only improve your mood every time you walk in the kitchen, but modern kitchen appliances will make your life easier, and the price of your home will increase as well.
Energy savings. By installing modern kitchen appliances, you’ll save energy since these appliances use less energy than kitchen appliances of the past. Adding in a skylight could bring in more natural lighting, eliminating the need for extra kitchen lights that use electricity.
To suit you. When you invest in a custom kitchen renovation by Showcase Kitchens in Long Island, you can be assured your custom kitchen will be laid out exactly how you want it, with the custom kitchen cabinets where you want them, the kitchen nook you’ve always wanted, the mini-bridge in your newly renovated custom kitchen island, or a drawer created just for kids’ snacks at their level.
Deterioration. If it is way past time for you to renovate your kitchen (signs include broken tiles, crumbling paint, and broken kitchen cabinet handles or doors), then it’s time to call Showcase Kitchens in Long Island.
Time for a change. This is one of Showcase Kitchens’ favorite reasons to renovate your space because the sky is the limit. If you don’t like your current kitchen just “because”, then Showcase Kitchens in Long Island can help.
Dream kitchen. If you love to cook and you’ve always wanted a gourmet kitchen that has everything you could ever want and the space to do it in, then give Showcase Kitchens in Long Island a call. We have been making homeowners’ dreams come true since 1933. We can make your dreams come true as well.
