4 Reasons to Renovate vs. Move
Your home is more than just a house. It is where your life unfolds every single day. It’s where you celebrate milestones with family and entertain friends. It’s yours. So why move?
Maybe your bathroom isn’t keeping up with busy morning routines as family members rush to get out the door to school and work. Or perhaps your kitchen can’t accommodate large family get-togethers or prepare your home for party central.
Whatever your motivation, renovation has good reasons. Here are just a few:
1. To enhance your home’s functionality
As mentioned above, mere function is reason enough to invest in a home renovation. Consider the way you currently use each room (and hallway!) of your home – would something new serve your family better? Island counters in the kitchen, double vanities in the bathroom, a spacious new entryway – these updates can greatly improve your home and your routine.
2. To increase your enjoyment of the home
What good is function without form? Some renovations are strictly for beauty, and there is nothing wrong with that. Make that bay window in your breakfast room a reality. Give your home the grand entry it deserves with a new staircase. Or add a cozy screened-in porch to your backyard.
3. To increase your home’s value
Even if you have no intention to sell, increasing your home’s value through a renovation is a smart move. Your house is likely your biggest investment, so keeping it in tip-top shape just makes sense. Build equity with projects like kitchen re-do’s, opening up the living room space, or adding a bathroom.
4. To give your home an update
Older homes are big on charm, but they can go out of style if not refreshed regularly. Keep up with modern kitchen appliances with new cabinets and counters. Give your home an upscale feel with fresh color schemes and architectural details.
