Aside from countless New Year resolutions made by people to get in shape, become financially independent, and otherwise live healthier, more fulfilling lifestyles, one thing many homeowners share this time of year is a commitment to remodeling projects.
Regardless of whether that is a new set of kitchen countertops, a new room addition or a bathroom makeover, you need money, time and a solid plan to move the job status from brainstormed ideas to complete.
Save and Remodel
It is very easy to put these kind of things on the back burner, and before you know it, another year has passed, and you are left wondering when you will actually get around finishing that renovation. Treat yourself to getting it done this year, but before you do, it is a wise move to get your budget in order.
Remodels and renovations can be downright nerve-wracking, especially when you take into consideration the scope and scale some homeowners attempt to tackle. While sticking to smaller projects is a great way to add value to your home, the best investments are those that pose a big challenge.
One such project would be to open up the ceiling in your house. This can typically be performed in structures with pitched roofs or attics and can instantly and dramatically alter the appearance of the property. Costly? Yes, but be prepared to watch your equity skyrocket!
Another way to save money on any add-ons is to keep existing walls intact since this means you do not need to reroute plumbing and electrical lines, an expense that can easily eat into your overall budget.
Taking the time to insulate interior walls offers numerous benefits, including sound reduction, improved energy-efficiency and lower heating and cooling bills.
Of course, our list would not be complete without mentioning why you should install new stone countertops. Granite, quartz and corian all have high resale value, and Premier Surfaces has an abundant selection always in stock!
