Choosing to undergo the process of home renovations is far from uncommon here in the United States, where up to two thirds of all home owners throughout the country are planning some type of home renovations project for the very near future. For many people, home renovations are well worth the cost, as it can improve the quality of a home significantly, especially if it has been quite some time since the home and its appliances have been updated in any way.
As a matter of fact, conducting home renovations can even improve the overall selling value of the home, something that many people who are looking to put their home up on the market in the near future should certainly take into consideration. After all, the return on investment can be great for common home renovations, such as kitchen renovations and bathroom renovations. Even just painting a bathroom a shade of blue can increase the final selling price by as much has $5,400, which is certainly no small sum, to say the least.
Of course, a number of important considerations must be though through before the renovations process can begin such as, to begin with, what area of the home will be renovated (or renovated first, as the case may be). For many people, it’s the bathroom, as more than 14 million bathroom renovations will occur here in the United States alone over the course of just one year. Kitchen renovations projects are also very commonplace, with up to nearly ten and a half million of them happening in this very same span of time.
After the actual project has been decided upon, the matter of the budget will need to be discussed, as these projects can become quite expensive indeed. Remodeling just one master bathroom, for instance, is likely to cost more than $11,000 by quite a bit. Therefore, saving up for a renovations project and finding compromises to lower the price – such as choosing linoleum flooring over tile flooring, to name just one example – is likely to be necessary for many a home owner planning an upcoming renovations project.
The same can be said for kitchen renovations projects, especially since as much as half of the budget will need to be spent on new cabinets alone – at least for the average kitchen renovation conducted just about all throughout the United States. As up to nearly half of all millennials prefer white cabinets over any other color of cabinet, the installation of white cabinets of a high quality is likely to draw a good deal of potential buyers to a home that has recently been placed on the market. Even if white cabinets are not in the taste of the current owners, they can more than pay off at the end of the day.
Of course, many other aspects of the cabinets must also be considered, from heavy-duty drawer runners to various aspects of door and cabinet hardware, like drawer slides and concealed hinges. Heavy-duty drawer runners can help to keep cabinets, especially newly installed ones, in good shape for quite some time, as these heavy-duty drawer runners will provide a great deal of protection, especially in the case of heavy-duty drawer runners that are of a considerable quality. And these heavy-duty drawer runners in question can also come in a number of different prints and designs, something that can be ideal for overall aesthetic appeal.
Aside from heavy-duty drawer runners, the use of decorative hinge options as well as decorative knobs and pulls are also commonplace. If you’re looking to save some money, the addition of such features can be a great way to up the appearance of just about any cabinet set – and for comparatively little money in comparison to the price of a fully brand new set of cabinets themselves. Of course, some people decide to splurge on both, a choice that can more than pay off if the house is being put up for sale in the near future.
For many people, renovations are costly, but it’s a cost that is more than worth it at the end of the day.
