Encompass Home Renovation Tips

Remodeling your kitchen can be a major undertaking but the end result may be more than just a fresh new space for the family to gather. Renovating an outdated kitchen and upgrading appliances could also help increase your home’s resale potential.

So how do you get the most out of your renovation investment? First prioritize your wish list. Your remodel will likely face budget constraints so look for easy cost-saving solutions such as repainting cabinets rather than replacing them. Second consider resale value. Try to stay away from expensive yet highly personal design decisions since they won’t always appeal to everyone. Third, opting for an open concept is generally a solid investment but it can become very expensive if you’re dealing with a load-bearing wall.

Fourth, balance aesthetic with durability when choosing countertops. For example marble looks great but it’s susceptible to stains and damage. A great alternative would be quartz countertops which can resemble marble for a lower cost and resist staining while offering longer durability. And lastly always remember to talk to your insurance agent when upgrades are complete as they may impact your home’s value and the level of coverage you may need Happy Remodeling.
