kitchen-remodelThe motive behind renovating a room can be practical or aesthetic; remodeling a kitchen or bath offers advantages on both levels. Adding monetary value to a home is the most obvious benefit.

When searching for their dream house, potential homebuyers take a close look at the quality of a home’s kitchen and bath. If these key rooms are updated and attractive, they are often the deciding factor in a sale. When homeowners decide to remodel kitchens and bathrooms, they can expect a return of up to 100 percent or higher on their investment.

The other important reason to remodel is to improve the home’s appearance, comfort and functionality. This makes life easier and more enjoyable. Kitchens and bathrooms are the most functional rooms in a house. In kitchens, every element contributes to the ease and success of cooking and entertaining. Upgrading refrigerators, stoves and dishwashers can reduce the time spent on maintenance and cleaning.

New energy-efficient appliances and lighting choices save money and help families to live more eco-friendly lives while giving the room a modern feel and streamlined function. Increased cabinet and counter top space not only look beautiful, they help keep a kitchen organized and uncluttered.

An old, outdated bathroom is transformed into a relaxing oasis by adding a walk-in shower or soaker tub. New vanities and mirrors increase functionality and enhance dimension. Even simple, elegant touches such as crown molding or a decorative vessel sink can create an entirely new atmosphere. For even more luxury, the plans may include heated towel bars, accent lighting and custom tile designs.

Adding additional space or accessing more natural light can improve both kitchens and baths. The pleasure and pride of creating an efficient, modern home with a fresh, updated custom look cannot be underestimated.

Personalizing a kitchen or bath design is easily accomplished with an integrated approach. A design-build process encourages open communication and ensures that clients are satisfied with every element of the project. With the latest kitchen and bath innovations and upgrades, homeowners can enjoy their homes more today and know that their investment will pay off handsomely in the future.
