One of the first and most important things you can do before you begin your remodel is to be sure of what you want to accomplish and what you’re willing to spend to achieve your goal.
If you’re remodeling to increase the value of your home, be sure to look at the price/value relationship. For example, homeowners in the market for reselling their home recoup on average 81% of every dollar they spend on a remodeled kitchen. That’s an excellent return on your investment. Master baths are the second best when it comes to recouping your investment.
But before you even start calculating your return, you need to take a realistic look at your budget. Discuss what you’re willing to spend with your designer before you start to plan. At Atlantic Kitchen & Bath our designer can work with you to make the most of your budget and create a living space you’ll be proud of.
Ironically, not hiring a designer in an effort to save money often ends up costing homeowners more. An expert will help make sure all is done right the first time and avoid costly mistakes.
