Home renovations and remodels are some of the best ways to add value to your home, upgrade out-of-date areas, revamp your design and aesthetic, and create a space that fits your needs. A huge benefit of remodels is that they allow you to upgrade your home to accommodate new designs and functional needs without requiring you to move and buy a new home. You can remodel almost any space in your home and there are definite pros and cons to each space. Two of the most popular remodels are often the kitchen and the bathroom with Americans remodeling about 24 million kitchens and bathrooms a year. That’s a staggering number! With all of the benefits, it’s no surprise these remodels are popular. With that in mind, if you are getting ready to commit to some home improvement projects you may find yourself wondering which you should start with, the kitchen or the bathroom? Well, at Doppler Construction, we’re here to help! Ask yourself some of the following questions to help determine which space you should start with.
When trying to decide between a kitchen or bathroom remodel it can be helpful to think about which area you spend the most time in. It may be beneficial to start with the space that gets the most use and therefore its remodel will hold more immediate value for you and your family. Typically, this space would be the kitchen. The kitchen is often viewed as the heart of the home and is where people gather to enjoy each other’s company and eat together. Especially if you are someone who cooks a lot or loves to entertain, it may make sense to start with this space first.
As with any home remodel project you will want to consider the inconvenience factor. All remodels are going to come with some amount of disruption but depending on the project this can range from a minor inconvenience to daily challenges. A kitchen remodel is likely to add some significant disruption to your everyday life while a bathroom renovation would typically be less invasive.
It can be helpful to consider your long term goals with any remodel. Are you mostly concerned with updating your home to best suit your needs or are you looking to sell in the near future? If you are updating in the hopes of selling your home soon you should consider which space affects selling more. Many studies have shown that both bathroom and kitchen remodels up your home value but kitchens may give you a little more bang for your buck.
