Plan A Successful Home Remodel
Remodeling your house can change the functionality and personal enjoyment of the space that you call home. Whether it’s the kitchen, the living room, or the bathroom that will be the target of your next remodel, it’s important to pool all of your resources in order to make the most of the opportunity. Consider the materials, the space, future value, and how traffic will flow in the home as you start piecing your layout together.
Although it is not necessary to buy new appliances or furniture when remodeling, it tends to be one of the extra highlights of the experience. Making sure that you have the hooks ups for any new appliances, and that you plan ahead for their added (or reduced) size can help you avoid some headaches later on in the process.
Compare the materials that you plan on using. Natural pieces, such as wood, tend to offer a warmer, more welcoming feel to the space, while modern pieces that use a lot of metal can present the appearance of class and style. Using the materials to add to the layout of your remodel can make your efforts to reinvent your living space more effective.
The traffic patterns in your home may change after your remodel is complete, and knowing how that will happen can dramatically change the layout that is best for the space that you have available. The last thing that you want to have happen is for people to be squeezing in between appliances to enter or exit the room, or to be pumping into things on a daily basis. On average, you’ll probably want almost three feet of room for free and relaxed movement.
The best way to make sure that you’ve got enough room to move around is to take precise measurements of each appliance and piece of furniture. Adding about three feet into your plan in areas that will experience high levels of traffic should make your layout more realistic to daily living.
A successful remodel can improve the market value of your home. However, simply remaking a room doesn’t meant that buyers will like the changes that you’ve made. Considering the materials and types of layouts that are more in-line with the common preference can improve the likelihood that future buyers will be interested in investing in the future. For ideas and inspiration, check out picture galleries and remodels that your friends and family members have done.
