Remodeling: The Game of Give and Take
Remodeling is an important experience that every home buyer should go through at least once. There are many reasons to remodel; you plan on selling your home, you want a large living space, etc. But the most important reason is to enhance your life. Doing a remodel that makes your life easier or makes your home feel brighter to you is the best reason to do a remodel. No remodel will turn out absolutely perfect and give you exactly what you put in, but if you are doing it for the right reasons, it will be well worth the price!
Remodeling involves a lot of give and take. What we mean by that is, usually a remodel will come with sacrifices. You will need to prioritize the things you want versus the things you need to have a successful remodel. Remodel budgets are not bottomless and there are issues that can come up in a remodel that can change the way you want to move forward. It is important be adaptable and be willing to make changes that will keep your vision alive.
There are many good areas to make sacrifices in a remodel. The goal of a remodel is not to spend so much money that you make your house completely unbuyable for the neighborhood. You want to enhance your home and make it a better living space for you, and in turn that will increase any profit you would get from this home from selling it if/when you do. There are many alternatives to premium items that can look and function like the real thing. Everything does not need to be the most expensive item, just make sure everything is practical and can serve its purpose.
Having fundamental items that do what they intend to do and are in the top 3-5 of their class is perfectly reasonable for a remodel. It is important you create the living space you have intended and are happy with the results.
