Life is always evolving, and this past year, the Coronavirus Pandemic saw the entire world adjusting to new ways of doing life and experiencing their homes differently. The desire to remodel homes went beyond just making a dream into a reality but created a feeling of necessity. While the pandemic certainly holds strong motivating factors to renovate your home in 2021, many of the motivating factors have stayed the same.
The Coronavirus Pandemic Effect.
Many people found that their living space was no longer meeting their needs. Last year homes became our schools, offices, gym, and recreational area. When we had to shelter at home, homeowners began seeing their homes differently. Home renovation saw a rise in adding pools, home gyms, and space. People are cooking and eating more at home making kitchens the center of family life. Thus, kitchen and bath remodels have become even more popular. Working from home created the need for office space or a “Zoom Room” so that we could get away from distractions. Students being educated at home or online needed learning rooms for the same reason. And even with the pandemic seeing the light at the end of a long tunnel, life has dramatically changed in how we live it. Those home offices and expanded family nights are not going anywhere.
Home Equity and Increasing Market Value.
Homeowners are getting an extra incentive from the record high amount of home equity they now have as home prices continue to gain and demand for housing soars. People also have saved money over this past year from not going out to restaurants, not eating out, not going on vacations, and they are putting that value back into their homes.
Your home is an important investment. Making smart decisions about renovation can have a positive long-term effect on the home’s market value. We can help you research your options and know what the best return on your investment will be.
Having Time to Remodel your Home.
Remodeling your home takes time and we seem to have more time as life has slowed down. Many people are no longer waiting until retirement to remodel. While a major remodel can require months of effort, from the design and selection phase to the on-site construction, the rewards are worth it.
Remodeling for a Changing Lifestyle.
While the Coronavirus Pandemic may have changed your lifestyle, there are still other common motivating factors to remodel. Whether your family is growing, or you have become an empty nester, your home needs to adapt to your lifestyle. As you grow older, capabilities change which means your home needs to have an accessible design. We can help you plan for that. With home renovation, your lifestyle is also enhanced by creating the space you want in your kitchen or upgrading your bathroom. This can have profound results in your everyday routine.
Remodeling Due to Deterioration.
Stuff happens! Kitchens, bathrooms, and exteriors remain the most frequent renovation projects because replacing them eventually becomes a necessity. Making the repairs is also the best time to expand into a remodel since the experts are already on hand. This can include updating for style as well as functionality. It is also a good time to make your home more efficient and sustainable which also helps reduce overhead and maintenance costs while decreasing your home’s impact on the environment.
Sometimes you just want to freshen things up. Whether it is changing the flooring, opening the floorplan, repurposing an existing room and its functionality, or finishing the basement, home renovation can change things enough to make you excited about loving your home again.
