The New Year is just around the corner, which means it’s time to start planning for some home remodeling projects that will give your house a fresh new look. Whether you’re looking to remodel your kitchen or need a modernized bathroom, there are plenty of options available for homeowners in 2022. Here are three popular home remodeling projects that people often consider in the new year:
Home Improvement Projects to Consider This Year
The bathroom is one of the most frequented rooms in the house, so if yours is in need of an overhaul, the new year may be the time to do it. There are many different home improvement projects you can take on in your bathroom, whether you do a minor bathroom remodel such as a new bathtub or shower, or you take on a total renovation. Here are a few ideas and reasons to opt for a bathroom remodel in 2022:
Combine Laundry Room and Bathroom
Combining two rooms allows you to save space and add a useful, functional area that may not have previously been a feature of your home, such as a laundry room. Adding a laundry area to the bathroom can create a more organized household, with laundry stored and dealt with away from the living areas. The right bathroom laundry room layout for your space can make a big difference in your weekly routine.
Increase Asking Price
If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, a bathroom remodel may be a good way to increase the asking price. But just how much value does a bathroom remodel add to your home? According to the RenoFi Renovation Index, on average, you’ll be able to recoup somewhere between $13,688 (64% of the project’s cost) for a midrange remodel and $37,995 for an upscale remodel (56.6% of the project’s cost)
Freestanding tubs are a fantastic option for anyone who enjoys taking baths. With freestanding tubs, you can place them virtually anywhere in your bathroom, even if it’s not directly next to the wall. They also take up less space than other types of bathtubs, allowing more room for storage or laying out your towels to dry.
The kitchen is another popular room people think about remodeling in the new year, especially considering how much time we spend in there each day. Kitchen remodels generally include new cabinetry, new fixtures, appliance upgrades, and lighting changes.
If energy efficiency is important for you, there are certain upgrades you can make this year to start cutting down your monthly energy costs. Getting new kitchen appliances in energy-efficient models like a refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove will result in lower electricity costs for years to come.
Another eco-friendly option for the kitchen is adding countertops made from recycled materials, such as crushed glass or recycled plastic. With energy-efficient choices you can save money while doing your part to protect the planet.
Return on Investment
Kitchen remodels are typically considered high ROI projects because they add value to your home, but they also give you more space to use. If you opt for a kitchen makeover this year, the increased value of your home could be worth over 60% back when you decide to sell in 10 years time.
Minor Kitchen Remodel
If you’re not quite ready for a full kitchen remodel but you’d still like to give your kitchen an update, consider doing a minor kitchen remodel instead. This type of project is cheaper and there’s usually less disruption to your life. It’s the perfect option if you’re looking to change up your kitchen but only have a small budget.
Increase the square footage of your home by finishing your basement into an additional living area. Finished basements are becoming more and more popular, especially considering the current market conditions.
Create a Family Room
Convert your unfinished basement into a family room and increase the liveable square footage of your home with a basement remodel. This project is a great way to increase the amount of time you spend together as a family.
Options are Limitless
A basement renovation can also be the perfect choice for homeowners who want to take their home workout routine up a notch, or just need more space in the house for storage. You might even discover that your basement is better suited as an office. Our latest blog, 9 Ultimate Ideas for Your Basement Remodel, is a great resource for planning your basement renovation.
Boost Curb Appeal
If you’re planning to sell your home in the near future, these three home renovations are a great way to increase the overall value of your home and prepare it for a real estate sale. A home renovation involving your bathroom, kitchen, or finishing your basement will not only increase your home value to potential buyers but will also prove a high return on investment. Many homeowners are looking for a home to be move-in ready and the more modern your home is, the more likely it will be to sell quickly once you list it on the market.
