As a homeowner, one of the things I had to learn while house hunting is to compromise. I remember wanting a laundry room, but I settled for a laundry closet when I found my starter home. If you’ve heard this term, then you know what it means…it’s not your forever home. It’s your first home that teaches you valuable lessons for the future and ideas on what you want or needs for your next home.
I’ve looked around my house and thought about what I would change if I could afford it. Whether it be replacing the tub with a jetted tub or expanding the bathrooms or kitchen in any way possible. So, I ask you, dear readers – what have you compromised on to have the home you wanted? And is there anything you’d want to change or add on to it?
Remodeling Is Not A Decision To Take Lightly
Remodeling is a huge decision to make, no matter the size of the house or the size of the project. The cost is probably the first thing that comes to mind, and it’s an enormous factor too. Can you afford it? Another factor to consider is what will the remodel add or take away from the space. Will you have to borrow space from one room to expand the other? But possibly the biggest question with any remodel is will it help to add value to your home?
The answer to this is complicated and varies with each person and home. But be aware that whatever you spend on that project, large or small, you may not see that same investment returned in the value of your home. For example, you could pay $9,000 for a new HVAC system, and only see a $4,000 improvement in the value of your home. That’s not an accurate example, but you get where I’m going with this.
Have you been wanting to remodel a room in your home? Maybe the kitchen? If you want to change from an electric stove to a gas stove, you’ll need a plumber to come in and inspect that area of the kitchen to see if there’s an existing gas line, or if one will need to be run to the kitchen.
How about the bathroom? Many people are okay with their bathrooms, but probably think they’d like to move the toilet over a few inches or replace the sink or convert from a tub to a standing shower. These items are something that a plumber can also help with.
