Are you tired of the look of your home? Is remodelling on your mind, but you’re not sure if you should take the leap into home construction yet? Here are 7 signs it’s time to remodel your home:
1. You Have The Funds To Do It
Let’s be clear – remodelling your home is a costly process. Even if you’re only remodelling a room or small area, it’s going to cost you money to do it right. After all, you’re changing the entire structure of part (or all) of your home. There are likely some ways to cut some costs — without cutting corners — which you can discuss with your construction team. Still, the cost of materials, building, permits, and finishing work will undoubtedly add up.
2. Your Home Is In Rough Shape
Maybe your home is starting to deteriorate, so you need to do some serious work on it anyway. If you have a leaking roof, tiles coming off the wall, foundation issues, rotting floorboards, or other structural damage, take this opportunity to remodel your home around fixing these issues.
3. You Need More Space
If you suddenly find yourself in a position where you need another bedroom — maybe you’re expecting a baby or an elderly family member is moving in. So, you’ll need to reconfigure your house design to add another room.
On the other hand, maybe your kids have moved out, and you’d love to finally have that home gym you’ve always dreamed of. Remodelling can do that for you.
4. You’re Frustrated With Your Space
Do you love to cook but have a tiny kitchen? Do you have a family room you never use? There’s no reason why you should have a space in your home that makes you feel frustrated every time you see it. Changing up your house design to create a space you love will allow your family to function so much better.
5. You Can Handle Disruption
Remodelling your home isn’t easy! It will mean at least a few weeks of disruption for your family while your home literally gets rebuilt around you. There will be noise and dust, and likely a time where you won’t be able to use your kitchen or bathroom. This may mean you have to move out of your home until the home construction is done, or try to live with the disruption.
6. You’re Not Planning To Move Soon
As we’ve already covered, your remodelling project will require a lot of time and money. So, if you’re planning on selling your home in the next few years, there’s not much reason to do a significant remodel project now. You likely won’t recoup all your costs in your selling price.
7. Your Home Is Outdated
If your bathroom still has fixtures from the 1980s, or your kitchen has original appliances from the 1970s, it may be time to remodel your home. If your home was built more than a few decades ago and nothing has been done to it since you’re probably aching for a change. So, if you’re feeling like your home needs a major facelift, it’s time to consider a new house design.
