The layout was inefficient, the divides between rooms were not meant for the 21st century, and it was just time to rework it all. Our kitchen/bath project is taking a big step was the wall between the living and dining room comes down to unite the two spaces, and add more space for everything you need.
We often hear that people “just want a new bathroom” or “Just need a new deck” and want to take on this smaller project, because it is what they can afford right now. Breaking your renovations into smaller, manageable pieces is great, but to do it effectively, homeowners should really think about how it connects with potential future renovations or improvements for the whole home and property at large. Here are a few tips to consider before starting that small renovation.
As part of this first floor transformation, we did our best to consider the optimal layouts, what was existing, what we could work with, and what needed a little bit of change. The exterior fixes were step 1, now onto the interior, and first stop was the bathroom, with some unique changes and interesting discoveries.
It’s easy to search the internet for names of home professionals (contractors, real estate brokers, insurance professionals, mortgages, lawyers and more) but then comes the time consuming task of trying to figure out if they are any good. You check reviews, you call friends, you try lead-generation sites, you make lots of calls and even try to find the few pros who will actually engage via email. And then you start to ask yourself…is homeownership really worth all this? Is my valuable time worth all this effort? We agree. That is why Housequarters offers Smarter Homeownership that any house and condo owner can use.
About two years ago, we worked with this homeowner to purchase a home “in need of a bit of work”. Before she event put in the offer, our experts helped paint a picture of what the home could be and ideas of what it might cost, and how it might affect future value of the home.
