When you opt to do a large-scale remodel on your home, you’re making both a big financial commitment and investment in your home. You’re opting to both upgrade the interior for yourself as well as for the future value that it will provide. You have to be careful with large home remodels to make sure that the interior upgrades don’t take it way outside the scope of the neighborhood if you plan on selling in the foreseeable future. Perhaps you already know that you’re ready for a large-scale remodel on your home to make it your perfect nesting place. Perhaps you’re unsure when the right time is going to be. Here at UrbanLUX Builders, the premier San Antonio home builders and building contractors, we’re ready to help you take your home to the next level whenever you are. So, how do you know when you’re ready to work with a building contractor for a large-scale home remodel?
Does your home no longer fit your needs?
If you bought your home because you fell in love with it, then you may be hesitant to move. Your home is a place you’ve made memories, but there are times where you home may not quite work just right for you any more. Or perhaps, there are quirks that have been a problem since day one. If your home no longer fits your needs, but could still do so with a renovation, then you have to weigh the costs between the renovation or moving. A renovation may be the better option if you truly love your home and other features that it has to offer. Having your kitchen and bathrooms completely redone are often the top renovations that we see in order to help your house fit your needs once again.
Have you always planned to have your home be a fixer-upper?
When you bought your home, you knew it had problems. The kitchen still has its original 1960s powder pink oven. The bathrooms are a bizarre mix of original work with 1980s updates, and you knew from the first time you walked in that hardwood floors were going to be an absolutely must. You bought the home because you saw the potential, and for the right price, that’s all a home really needs. If a home has potential, a large-scale renovation can make it perfect. This allows you to get exactly what you want, with customizations, without having to have a home built from the ground up.
Is your family growing?
Okay, we know that a growing family more often than not requires a bigger house, but occasionally a renovation on your current home can help you to match the needs of your growing family without having to move. You can turn a bathroom with one sink and no storage into a functional, multi-child space. Upgrades to your kitchen can make room. Expanding your laundry room can improve your ability to meet the needs of your family. Taking down a wall that restricts your family’s main living room can easily provide the extra space you crave. If you’re hesitant to give up your home and think that it can still work for your growing family, get in touch with a premier building contractor to make plans for your much needed renovation.
Are you living in your forever home?
If you’ve been in your home for a little while and you know that it’s your forever home, then it could be a great idea to renovate. If you plan to stay in your home for the foreseeable future, don’t you want to live in a home that is distinctly yours? A large-scale renovation can help you to make your home completely yours and improve your comfort. If you’ve always wanted the perfect master bathroom, don’t wait until it’s time to move on; let yourself enjoy it for the many years to come in your wonderful San Antonio home. Make sure that you have not only the home you need, but also the home you truly want.
Unfortunately, you will have to think about how you will afford to pay for your large-scale home remodel at some point. In fact, it’s a great idea to start saving for it as soon as you know you want to make improvements on your house. There are a variety of ways in which to pay for these types of improvements, some of which we will address in future blog posts, but the most important part to note is that no matter what, they all take planning. Planning in advance for your home remodel will allow you to be able to get the renovations that you want and pay for them easily. In addition, it’s often easier to get everything done all at once in order to consolidate the amount of visits a building contractor may have to make to your home and to reduce any fees. Having your remodel work done at a similar time also allows you to perfectly match tile, hardwoods, and other materials that may change over time.
Your home is your haven. Even if it’s not perfect, your San Antonio home is still yours and you deserve to have it look and feel the way that you want it to.
