How to Prioritize Your 2023 Home Remodel
Functionality and Flow of the Home
While increasing property value and adding to the beauty of your home are important, you don’t want to forget about functionality. Make note of the pain points or frustrations you have with your home to make sure they are addressed in the remodeling process.
Prioritize improving the functionality and flow of your space. Consider how you use each room and how they connect with one another. Opening up floor plans, creating efficient layouts, and optimizing traffic flow can significantly enhance the overall usability of your home, and thus how much you enjoy living in it.
A kitchen remodel is one of the best ways to make your home both more functional and more valuable in one project. It is known as one of the home renovations with the best ROI, both financially and practically. The kitchen is often the heart of the home. Upgrading kitchen features can offer both practicality and aesthetic appeal, especially if you focus on quality appliances, durable countertops, ample storage, and efficient workspace.
Bathrooms are another area that can greatly impact your daily life and property value. Prioritize fixtures like faucets, showers, and toilets for quality and efficiency. Adequate lighting and storage are also essential for creating a functional and comfortable space.
This is especially important to prioritize if you live in an older home with bathrooms that have not been redone in a few decades. The bathrooms in the home tend to bear the brunt of major wear and tear, showing the age of the home and bringing down the overall functionality.
Investing in energy-efficient features can lead to long-term savings on utility expenses and contribute to a more sustainable lifestyle. Prioritize insulation, energy-efficient windows, LED lighting, and energy-efficient appliances. You can also opt to incorporate smart home technology into your remodel to optimize your energy usage, being kinder to both your wallet and the planet.
Flooring plays a significant role in the overall look and feel of a room. Depending on your preferences and needs, consider upgrading to hardwood, tile, or high-quality laminate flooring. Durable and easy-to-maintain flooring options can enhance the longevity of your remodel.
Based on your family, whether you have pets, your budget, your lifestyle, and other factors, we can help you decide which flooring is the right fit for your home.
Effective storage solutions contribute to an organized and clutter-free home. Prioritize built-in shelving, cabinets, closets, and creative storage options to maximize space and reduce clutter.
Built-in, custom storage will make your home more beautiful and functional, and at the same time increase its potential resale value.
Invest in quality materials that will stand the test of time. While these materials might have a higher upfront cost, they can result in lower maintenance and replacement expenses in the long run. When it comes to 2023 home remodels there are ample materials available which can often seem overwhelming, however, it is vital that you take your time to find the perfect material that will stand the test of time.
If you are faced with choosing a lower quality material or nixing a small portion of the project, it is often better to choose higher quality materials at the expense of waiting for some part of the renovation. It is a better investment to choose the best materials now.
While personalization is important, consider how your remodel choices will impact the future resale value of your home. Prioritize features that have broad appeal and contribute to your home’s marketability. If you are not sure what these might be, our designers can help you decide.
