Home Remodeling Trends Lean Toward Smaller Kitchen and Bath Projects

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 11, 2012

As the weather starts to warm and flowers start to bloom, so does the desire of homeowners to get to their home remodeling to-do lists and projects.
 
The top trends in home remodeling based on industry statistics and customer requests indicate that people are choosing to do a series of smaller upgrades around the house rather than tackle larger renovation projects.

The most popular home remodeling job remains a kitchen makeover. Kitchens are the most popular room in the house to remodel. Homeowners in the market to sell their home recoup an average of 81% from their investment in a kitchen remodel. But smaller kitchen upgrades are what are becoming more and more popular. Cabinet refacing and refinishing are the perfect solution to a kitchen that has good layout and just needs upgrading.

Kitchen upgrades offer convenience for those homeowners wishing to stay in their home. Granite countertops, farmhouse sinks, and newly refinished kitchen cabinets are all popular choices.

Bathroom remodels are always a must-do project. Usually costing less than a kitchen remodel, many homeowners are turning their bathrooms into a spa. Updating a bathroom with new tile, vanities with granite or quartz countertops and dual rain shower set the tone for relaxation after a long day at the office.

A large amount of homeowners are doing remodeling projects that enhance their living space. For information on your kitchen or bath remodeling project, contact Kenneth C. Lewis Cabinet Refinishing.

New Countertops Add Value in This Tough Housing Market

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 29, 2012

Some home improvement projects do not give you the return on investment to make them worthwhile. However, there are some home improvements that increase market value. Most realtors will tell you, kitchens and bathrooms are where the sale is made.

Wall paint colors are easily and inexpensively changed, and chances are that the new homeowner is going to change the wall colors anyway. Complete ktchen remodels certainly create a wow-factor that will boost the value of a home, but the cost is prohibitive for many homeowners, and the work required is lengthy and messy.

Kitchens and bathrooms can benefit from a significant facelift simply by replacing outdated countertops with new custom countertops. At various price points, homeowners can choose from granite countertops, soapstone countertops, silestone countertops, concrete countertops, and a growing number of eco-friendly countertops.

Not every investment will actually pay off when you try to sell. New countertops, however, can beautify your home while you're living there and still provide great ROI when you're ready to move.

By choosing smart upgrades such as new countertops, a home's value will likely increase. Feature such as these are quickly becoming the standard for kitchens and bathrooms. Potential buyers will often not consider a home without granite countertops since they are so popular and readily available these days. Being competitive is crucial in a tough housing market.

Kitchen Remodeling has High ROI

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, February 08, 2012

Instead of selling homes today more homeowners are upgrading and updating their homes instead. There are several home improvement jobs with a high return on investment. If your goal is to improve your home’s value, here are the remodeling projects that will give you the most return for your money:

  • Kitchens and baths
  • Decks
  • Siding
  • Windows
You have several choices for bathroom and kitchen remodels. You can spend a lot of money on a complete gut and remodel. Or, you can do it for less, by refacing or refinishing kitchen cabinets and countertops, and maybe a new floor. This will still give you the effect you are looking for, and still have a great return.

Not all kitchen remodeling projects need to be invasive and massive. Sometimes it is just a face lift that you need. Where you live, the materials you choose, and the scope of the work are all factors that determine costs and can make a difference in your budget.
