What Does a Full Home Renovation Include?
While the process can vary depending on the homeowner’s needs, wants and budget, a complete home renovation project typically includes the following areas:
- Kitchen: These days, a kitchen is more than just a place to prepare and consume meals. It’s also a favorite family gathering point and a prime spot for entertaining guests. As part of a whole-house remodel, a renovation can improve the kitchen’s functionality via the installation of new appliances, cabinets, cooking and food prep island. It can also dramatically increase your home’s aesthetic appeal.
- Bathroom: In many homes, the bathroom is the area with the most significant need for an upgrade. A carefully planned and well-executed renovation project can breathe new life into a tired-looking bathroom. Installing an en suite bathroom in a bedroom can also add convenience or help you in your efforts to create a multi-generational home.
- Outdoor living space: Do you love being outdoors? You can add a covered living area that will combine all the interior comforts with the calming feeling you can only get from an outdoor environment. Create a beautiful enclosed space you can use as a living room, kitchen, entertainment area for parties and more.
- Attic: Why use your attic for storing items you never use — or forgot that you ever had? Including an attic renovation in your whole-house remodel can create badly needed extra living space in your home. It’s perfect for adding another bedroom to accommodate your growing family or when making the transition to a multi-generational household. You can also use a remodeled attic for a home office or den.
- New addition: You can also use a full home renovation to build an addition onto your home. You’ll instantly create usable space that can serve many purposes. Build an extra room or add an entire wing.
Because of the scope, complexity, and cost of the project, careful planning is the key to any successful home renovation. Choose a competent builder who will listen to your needs and help bring your unique design concepts to life.
