If you are unhappy with an outdated kitchen or bathroom in your home, it can be a strain on your daily life. Outdated cabinets offer less space, fewer organization opportunities, and unruly flow. Not to mention, an old kitchen and bathroom can give your home’s value a real hit. And while you may not be considering selling your home any time soon, why not update the kitchen and bathroom now so you have a chance to enjoy it?
HGTV recently ran an article covering “Which Home Improvements Pay Off?” We were not surprised and happy to see kitchen and bathroom remodels top on the list. Highlights from the article:
Seigle’s loves nothing more than seeing a remodel pay off for our clients. Recently, homeowners in Elgin were having trouble selling their home that included an outdated kitchen, so they took it off the market. They stayed in the home for a few years and remodeled the kitchen with Seigle’s, transforming it into an open kitchen with a large working island. Then they listed the house and were able to successfully sell it for more than the asking price! See the before and after photos of this winning kitchen remodel.
Experts in the article note that kitchens and bathrooms are “where you can tell if money has been well spent or not” as they are “the most expensive areas of the home in terms of construction. And they’re where people spend time in their homes.” They also give our favorite advice: remodel now, because you’ll get the maximum use out of it. The article notes, “You can’t measure the value you get out of your use and enjoyment of the home improvements you make.”
