Starter Home Remodeling 101: Areas to Focus On



As a trusted home renovation company, we know that when it comes to a starter home remodeling project, it is important to plan carefully, make smart decisions and stay focused on things that matter the most. Here are the most important areas to focus on.

Kitchen Remodeling

If you are buying an older home that hasn’t been previously remodeled, chances are the kitchen is out-of-date. If that is the case for you, one useful tip to follow is to opt for a classic look that can withstand the test of time. When it comes to a kitchen remodel, try to avoid trends as they tend to go out of style quickly. Consider the needs of your family when designing your kitchen and be sure to include a lot of storage and work space, especially if you enjoy cooking.

Bathroom Remodeling

Your bathrooms are also a key area of interest and one that you should put thought into. Depending on the size of your family, one or two bathrooms should be enough. However, for a family of more than five, having three bathrooms is ideal to avoid inconveniences. If undertaking a major renovation like adding an extra bathroom is beyond your budget at the moment, there are creative solutions such as installing a privacy glass shower stall so that two people can use the bathroom at the same time. 

Consider Additions

With a growing family, adding or converting an existing room is a good idea. Sure, you can always move if you outgrow your starter home but, most of the time, this isn’t always a practical option. You can easily renovate your basement to be an extra bedroom, office or laundry and utility room. If you find that you need more living space, you can transform your backyard by building a deck or patio that you and your family can use as an extension of your living room.
