People are always looking to remodel, renovate, and redesign their homes. In the U.S. the home remodeling industry generates around $47 billion of revenue. Having residential renovations adds value to one’s home, which is partly why residential remodeling services receive so much business.
There is a lot you can do to your home to increase its value. Deck additions, for instance, have an average return on investment (ROI) of 87.4%. The most worthwhile and valuable internal home renovations are kitchen and bathroom renovations. Both of these have an average ROI of about 64%. Residential painting services also provide a cost effective way to reinvigorate a room or entire home. Here are some things to consider for general remodeling and redesigning.
Residential Bathroom Remodeling.
Bathrooms are important, especially for those who like having guests over. Nothing gives off a worse impression than a dirty, dysfunctional, or out of date bathroom! This is perhaps why bathroom remodeling jobs account for 78% of home renovations in the U.S. So what exactly do people have done to their bathrooms?
Lighter, brighter shades and colors are a recent trend for bathroom remodeling. Many modern bathrooms have white walls, floors, and counters. Tile floors and marble counters are also becoming increasingly popular. Glass shower doors also add a modern flare to any bathroom. Anything that gives a bathroom a more elegant, sleek, and clean look is in vogue today. For more ideas and inspiration, there are several bathroom remodel blogs on the internet that showcase people’s recent renovations!
Residential Kitchen Remodeling.
Kitchens, like bathrooms, say a lot about a person’s home. A clean, well-maintained kitchen tells guests that you care about preparing food efficiently and presenting it well. In terms of demand, kitchen remodeling jobs fall just behind bathroom remodeling jobs. In fact, kitchen remodeling tasks are requested by 69% of contractors’ customers. The good news is, you don’t have to break the bank to remodel your kitchen.
Even minor renovations such as new counters and lighting fixtures can entirely change the way a kitchen looks. And while granite counters are the high-end standard, other synthetic stone materials can replicate the look and last even longer. Having new lights installed above, below, and/or inside cupboards is another valuable addition to any kitchen.
Residential Painting Services.
A little color (or lack thereof) can go a long way! If your rooms seem small and stuffy, lighter tones like white, beige, lighter greens, blues, and yellows can create the illusion of more space. Darker browns and reds tend to suggest a more rustic look. Any room can look more sophisticated and spacious with the right color scheme. Most residential painting services do more than just paint the desired areas. They also prepare the room or rooms beforehand by covering furniture, floors, and other stationary objects. Residential painters are also aware of harmful paint fumes and most services now use non-toxic paints.
Any home deserves to look its best! With minor or major renovations to kitchens and bathrooms, alongside other additions and paint jobs, you can entirely change and improve the way your home looks and feels while adding to its market value.
