How to Know When It's Time to Remodel

While many homeowners choose to remodel as a result of worn countertops or broken tile, there are a variety of reasons to renovate that do not deal with obvious repairs. Consider the following when evaluating your Maryland home and determine if it’s time to remodel!

Establish More Space

Your house may have met all of your needs when it was first purchased, but due to a growing family or other circumstances, the space is no longer sufficient. Choosing to remodel doesn’t necessarily mean that you are going to add square footage to your house, but that the current space will be altered to meet the needs of your family.

Opt for Efficiency

Are you spending more time repairing your oven than baking dinner in it? Is your washing machine using more water than necessary? If so, consider opting for modern, technologically advanced appliances. New, sleek technologies allow homeowners to maximize space and increase functionality in the home!

Create the Ideal Location

The original design of your home may not allow ample sunlight indoors. Or maybe you’d like to rearrange the kitchen to accommodate your new interest in feng shui. Investing in a home remodel could provide you with the ideal space to entertain guests, make dinner, or spend time with your family.

Accommodate Disability

Accommodating a disabled family member requires certain exterior and interior updates. For example, do you plan to install a ramp or step-free entrance? If your home is multi-story, how will your family member move freely throughout the space? Consider the accessibility of all areas of your home, including the outdoor spaces.

Increase ROI

If you’re preparing to sell your home down the line, remodeling is a great way to improve your return on investment. The 2017 edition of Cost Vs. Value reported that the cost recouped for the average basement remodel in Baltimore was higher than 60%. The cost recovered of a minor kitchen remodel was higher than 79%. That’s more profitable than the average for the entire South Atlantic region!
