According to Remodeling magazine’s annual analysis of cost vs value, a major kitchen remodel nets a return of investment of roughly 80 percent? When people do kitchen renovations or bathroom renovations, they are improving the structure of their house, and as such the value. You are not only customizing the house, you are improving it for future residents.
In terms of kitchen ideas, you should use pull out drawers instead of reach in drawers. If you are retro fitting existing cabinets, you can have pull out trays installed. On that note, you can add breakfast nooks and counter dining, which can add a cozy, informal bit of spice to your kitchen. In addition, if you have eight foot ceilings, you should choose cabinets that go to the ceiling, as this offers more storage space. If they are higher than eight feet, you should leave 15 to 18 inches above the cabinets.
But what about bathroom renovation ideas? The best bathroom renovation ideas can result in a huge ROI for your home, as well as a major morale boost for the homeowner who spends a lot of time in the bathroom. A customized bathroom, fit with everything you want, can be a catalyst for you always looking forward to getting home.
Some people like to be environmentally responsible in their renovations, and on that note, according to the National Home Builder’s Association, the green building market has increased dramatically in the past couple of years. Two percent of homes were built to energy standards in 2005, and 17 percent of homes were built to energy standards in 2011.
