Remodeling is a fantastic opportunity to make major changes to your Bergenfield home and its layout and decide exactly how you want your bathrooms or kitchen to look. But before you get started, here are a few tips to follow that will ensure the job gets done exactly as you want.
Aim for High Return on Investment
When making changes to your home, comfort should be at the top of your list, but so too should the value of your home. That’s why kitchens and bathrooms are often at the top of the list in terms of remodeling. Other things to consider include new siding, windows and decks, but in terms of what you can do in your bathrooms and kitchen, aim for things that bring real value to your home. This includes new low flow fixtures, upgraded water lines and drain pipes, and new counters and flooring.
Map Out Your Changes in Advance
Before you call the first contractor on your list, create a thorough list of things you’d like changed. This list will allow you to contact someone who has a clear idea of what you need and will help you avoid the waffling that often occurs when a contractor comes to do an estimate. It also helps you know what your budget actually is and what changes to your plans may be needed.
Plan for the Remodel
Above all else, make sure you plan for the remodel. Don’t assume the remodeling process will be done in a single day – be ready for many days of inconvenience in your home. Know where you can take your children for the day and how you’ll make meals when your kitchen is in pieces.
Remodeling can be a stressful experience if you don’t plan it out well in advance. But with the right forethought it can ensure you have the exact bathrooms and kitchen you always wanted.
