Some Things To Consider
Make decisions on the details early
The sooner you can select all your fixtures, tile, flooring and countertops, the more information H & N Custom Homes will have to arrive at an accurate estimate. You’ll also avoid the delays that backordered items cause if you can order well before they’re to be installed.
Consider retaining the current footprint
You will see cost savings by keeping electrical and plumbing lines where they are and you’ll also make planning your new layout easier since you’ll already have the locations of important features set. Another benefit is reducing the costs (and the dust) of demolition.
Expect the unexpected
You will encounter surprises in your remodel, especially in older residences. There are all sorts of surprises lurking behind the walls or under the floor. For example, when you rip out your walls and discover your electrical wiring is out of date. Or you pull out your shower and discover the floor beneath it is rotten thanks to a water leak you didn’t know about. Leave some wiggle room in your budget to cover these surprises.
Make the entire process easier with the help of H & N Custom Homes
This is a job that should be entrusted to a qualified contractor who will add value from the earliest stages of planning and can help you keep your project on the right track.
Let’s talk budget
Deciding how much you want to spend and sticking to it sounds so obvious and simple, but it’s harder than you think. A kitchen or bath remodel is one of the most expensive projects that you can take on and it’s one of the best in giving you a return on that investment. You can dramatically improve the value of your home and your quality of life.
The average kitchen remodel in our area is 20K and for a bathroom it is 9K, but three factors should determine your personal budget.
How much can you can afford to spend?
Look at your finances to determine this number. Secure financing before you begin
How long do you plan to stay in your house?
If you are planning on selling your home within five years, then your kitchen or bath renovation should be viewed as an improvement on a real estate investment. Only spend what you think you will get back when you sell the house. If you plan on living in your home longer than five years, you should do a remodel that will make you and your family the most comfortable.
Is it modest, or upscale? If you put an upscale kitchen or bath in a modest neighborhood, you’ll lose money on your investment when you sell your house. Don’t over improve.
