Outdoor Recreation Spaces
The outside of the home is the most visible and is often underutilized. Outdoor spaces are especially in demand in tropical Florida, where the outside becomes an extension of the living space. Add in some home comfort, and you’ve set your home apart from the rest. While pools are a popular option, other sought-after outdoor upgrades include outdoor kitchens and bathrooms, decks, patios, and gazebos. Outside kitchens can be a particularly cost-effective upgrade in a state where you can host outdoor BBQs and gatherings all year long.
An outdated kitchen can make or break the sale of a home. Even if you’re planning to live in your home for the next twenty years, an older kitchen can be inefficient, require more energy, and deter you from using one of the essential rooms in the house. While not all homes need a full kitchen remodel, especially if the last renovation was less than a decade ago, common kitchen renovation projects include replacing the lighting, installing new countertops and cabinets, and updating the flooring. In addition, if you’re already planning to upgrade appliances, it’s a good time to remodel around those new appliances so that everything fits together seamlessly.
Second perhaps only to the kitchen, a bathroom remodel adds incredible value to a home. And the great thing about bathroom renovations is they can be as involved or simple as required. Many older bathrooms suffer from a lack of storage space, so custom cabinetry is a popular choice. Upgraded fixtures, such as bath and shower combos, double vanities, and accent faucets and handles, not only increase usable space but can provide a much-needed facelift for outdated bathrooms. Even something as simple as replacing the toilet can provide increased comfort and savings on water use.
Home additions are often necessary for older homes with only one bathroom, tight kitchens, or absolutely no closet space. And a home expansion doesn’t have to be too involved either. Expanding a kitchen or bathroom space can utilize a room or part of a room that is unused. For example, adding a pantry to a kitchen only requires a bit of space and good forethought. However, if you’re already dealing with a small home, an addition can expand outside of the current home’s layout. An entire second floor can even be added to double the living space!
