Renovating your home can be stressful, let us at Be Happy Property Services make it easier for you!
How can you tell when is the right time to have your home be renovated?
- When your floor needs to be replaced
- The roof is leaking
- Your home feels too crowded or too empty
- The paint looks dingy and starts to chip
- The house feels out-dated
- Your kitchen and bathrooms look old
1. When your floor needs to be replaced.
The first sign that your home needs a renovation is when your floors tiling system is starting to detach. The detachment of the tiles only means that the tile grouting is already wearing off. The more common rooms that will need new floors are bathrooms and kitchens. You can also change up the design and add some wood floors; wood not only looks great, but it’s good for resale. Wood floors can have a great return on your investment. Carpet in high traffic areas should be replaced every 10 years. The look of carpet that needs to be replaced can make your home look like it’s in desperate need of a remodel. By replacing the carpet or adding hardwood flooring, it will significantly update the look and feel of your home.
2. The roof is leaking!
Leakages in your roofing system mean two things:
One, the roofing installer and service that you hired is no good, and two – the roofing system of your home is already old and rotten.
Either way, your roof needs fixing and renovating. Roofing companies work in squares, which is a 10×10 foot area, 100 square feet. The more square feet your roof is, the more it will cost to replace. If your home has vinyl siding and the paint is chipping, then it’s time to repaint the exterior of your home.
3. Your home feels too crowded or too empty.
Have you ever encountered coming home to your house and you feel weird, and something is off? When people encounter this, they often feel that their house is either crowded or too spacious. Note that when this happens to you, it only means that your house needs refreshing. You may actually renovate your home by simply re-organizing all the things and belongings inside your home.
4. The paint looks dingy and starts to chip.
Another factor that could explicitly mean that your home needs remodeling is when the interior or exterior paint starts to become worn down, dirty, and chipping. It only shows that external factors are already affecting your home negatively. These factors could be dirt and chemicals. Aside from the fact that this circumstance means that your home is deteriorating already, it could also mean that you need to regard and renovate and clean things inside your home.
Apply a fresh layer of paint to your walls on the inside and exterior of your home. Repaint the baseboards and crown molding if needed. Touch up your kitchen cabinets and other areas in the kitchen and bathrooms. Having freshly painted walls and baseboards can take years off the look of your home. If the white is starting to yellow, a nice coat of white paint will do wonders for updating your home’s look.
5. The house feels out-dated.
If you see lots of shiny gold door handles or shiny gold finish on anything really, then it’s about time to start a new remodel project to modernize your home. Older bathrooms will have gold everything, facets, door handles, bathtubs, and shower fixtures. This was a popular design in the 1990s but feels very out-dated in 2021.
You can buy oil rubbed bronze or brushed nickel faucets, door knobs, and other bathroom and kitchen accessories fairly cheap. They are easy to install and can usually be completed in 10 minutes or less. New modern fans and light fixtures can be found on Amazon for under $100. These improvements will have a big impact and make your home feel much newer than before.
6. Your kitchen and bathrooms look old.
These are the most important rooms in the home, not only for homeowners but also for home bu
yers. If you have a very outdated looking kitchen or bathrooms, your home will feel old. You should modernize these rooms and bring them up to date. Give us a call at Be Happy Property Services about your kitchen remodel and renovation project. Bathroom remodeling usually includes new sinks, flooring, shower walls, faucets, toilets, etc. Like a kitchen remodel, the homeowner’s costs are moderate, with a huge payoff. Not only will your house have a great interior design and be up-to-date, but it will also be worth more if you ever decide to sell.
The bottom line is these signs can be very minimal and too “normal” to be seen and noticed in entirety.
However, once your home shows these kinds of signs, it only means that your home is starting to deteriorate and needs home remodeling.
