When planning a whole home remodel, you want the space to work for you. Depending on your family, lifestyle and how you plan to live, your home may need different things. Families who host visitors often want more sleeping space. If you love informal gatherings, you might want a big kitchen open to a living space. Whatever your needs, before you start working with a home remodeler, here are some things to think about other than budget.
What’s Most Important in Your New Space
If you’re considering a whole home remodel, there’s probably one space that is the primary reason for your remodel. Is that space outdated or does it just not work for you? What is that space? Here are some common reasons people start a remodel:
- Poor Layout – You may love the home’s location and it may have the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms but the main living area’s layout just doesn’t work for you. If that’s the reason for the remodel, you’ll want to ask yourself what doesn’t work and what do you want to make it work.
- Dated Kitchen – There was a time when the kitchen was hidden away from where you entertained but now it tends to be the room where everyone ends up. If you want a better layout for your kitchen and an adjoining entertaining area, you need to open up your home’s space.
- Bedroom Issues – If you see a bedroom as just a place to sleep and you have too few large rooms, you and your home remodeler can look at ways to reconfigure the space. The right number of rooms and the right size rooms make a difference.
- Insufficient Storage – Indoor storage is especially important in Florida. We can’t just leave our holiday decorations in the garage as the humidity and heat will take their toll. If you don’t have the closet space you need, your home remodeler can help with that too.
Whole Home Remodel Challenges
Unless you’re ready to invest in an addition and have the ability to expand the footprint of your home, you may have to make compromises in your remodel. The biggest challenge is the desire for the right amount of space but the inability to make it happen because of supporting walls or easement issues. One of the benefits of working with an experienced home remodeler like Build America LLC is that we know how to make the most of your space.
