House extension, remodels and renovations, have become the new trend for homeowners looking to increase their living space, without moving to larger properties. There are so many home projects that can be undertaken, from extensions, loft or basement conversions, remodels and renovations. All projects, if done properly, will significantly increase the value of your home and give a return on your investment if you decide to sell in the future.
Of all the extensions and kitchen or bathroom remodels that can be performed on your property, the home remodels that give the best return on your investment are the kitchen and bathroom. This leaves you with the decision of which one should be carried out first.
Where is your time spent?
To make the decision, of which remodel to perform first, think about which room is used the most, the majority of people answer with the kitchen. The kitchen is in fact the place where people tend to congregate, perform meal preparations, dine and many kids do their homework at the kitchen table. However, if you’ve really got your heart set on a luxurious bathroom, there is no rule on which room should be remodeled first; it is entirely up to you and your requirements.
How much inconvenience are you ready for?
Whichever room you decide upon, be prepared for disruption and chaos. The room being remodeled will be out of bounds for the duration of the project, so you need to make necessary, alternative arrangements. If your kitchen is being remodeled, be prepared so that you won’t be able to cook or prepare food. The bathroom is less of disruption as most properties have a second bathroom. On the whole, bathroom renovations are usually less disruptive compared to kitchen remodels.
Think about your remodel with guests in mind
If you like to entertain and often have guests over, having a fantastic new kitchen to entertain in, or a luxurious bathroom to show off both have their merits. So, the decision is which one to do first? Which project would you get more use out of when entertaining? Whatever you decide, you’re sure to enjoy many years from your new modern kitchen or gorgeous modern bathroom.
