Ideas for Home Improvement

Posted in Home Improvement

Getting in shape is a long process. No one expects to go to the gym one day and meet all of their fitness goals the next day. It's a day-by-day experience that must be balanced by focusing on one goal at a time.

Similarly, home improvement can vary tremendously in timing and scope. From a full-home remodel to a focus on a kitchen remodel, window replacement or bathroom remodel, choosing what to improve is an important decision. Let's discuss ideas for home improvement for both of these scenarios.

Full-Home Remodels

A full-home remodel affects, obviously, every area of your home. This method definitely increases your home's value, function and aesthetics the most, but requires the most significant initial investment (both financially and time-wise). A typical full-home remodel will include a bathroom remodel, kitchen remodel, new paint, construction/layout changes, window replacement and more. When exploring ideas for home improvement, a full-home remodel may be your default thought, but this is up to your budgetary needs and home goals to decide whether individual projects make more sense.

Pros of full-home remodels:

  • Improve overall home function and value

  • Includes all areas of home, from kitchen to bathroom

  • Easier to match styles and colors

Cons of full-home remodels:

  • Expensive initial investment

  • May not provide desired ROI

  • Significant downtime and potential delays

Standalone Projects

Home improvement doesn't have to mean improving your whole home. Making a significant improvement to an area like your bathroom can still improve the function, aesthetics and value of your home. As you explore ideas for home improvement, here are some examples of standalone projects that can improve your home:

  • Single-room remodel: Remodeling your bath or shower can give you a breathtaking bathroom. As one of the most-used areas of your home, this is a great standalone project idea or part of a full-home remodel. You can remodel a bathtub, shower, walk-in tub, shower enclosure and more.

  • Efficiency remodel: Sometimes, you simply want to increase the energy efficiency of your home, which could be as simple as replacing doors or windows. This standalone project can make a big impact on energy costs and the curb appeal of your home.

  • Aesthetics remodel: Finally, the function of a room or feature could be adequate, yet the looks are dated. With a simple update, your bath, shower or other area of your home could be matched to the decor style of your choice.

For budgetary reasons and more, the standalone remodel option may emerge as the winner as you explore ideas for home improvement. If you're in need of a bath remodel, new doors or windows contact us today for a free quote!
