With changes in taste, technology, style, needs and family size, your current home may not be the best fit for your family. Here are five indicators it’s time to remodel your home.

  • Love/hate relationship. Do you have some things you love about your house but other things you hate? For example, do you love the kitchen size but wish you had more counter space? Or, do you love your location and neighbors but wish you had an extra room? You don’t have to necessarily move if your current home isn’t fitting all of your wants or needs. Consider remodeling so you can add to the things you already love about your existing home.
  • Not green. If you’ve lived in your home for awhile, or you moved into an older home, you may have appliances and other home features that aren’t energy efficient which means it’s probably negatively impacting your energy bills too. The fix could be as simple as upgrading your appliances and light bulbs. Or, you could choose upgrades that are more involved. Remodeling your home can kill two birds with one stone by making your home energy efficient and save you money in the long run. 
  • Stuck in the past. It’s easy to feel like trends change so quickly, you just can’t keep up with them. However, at some point you’ve got to update your home. If you’re still sporting carpeted bathrooms, blonde cabinets, popcorn ceilings, floral wallpaper borders or wicker furniture, it’s time to remodel!
  • Inefficient use of space. Is a standard home design not fitting the current needs of your family? For example, do you have an unused formal dining room, or are you using one of your garage bays as a place to play pool? The attention to remodeling will be worth it when you make your space more usable.  
  • Fluctuating family size. Whether your home is filling up with more children, aging parents or adult children coming back home with their own families, your current home size may be too big or too small for your needs. Rather than suffer in discomfort or go home shopping, consider remodel to get just the space you need.
After weighing the pros and cons of a home remodel, don’t stress about financing. Now’s the time to remodel your home to fit your family’s wants and needs!
