A Place Called Home
Remember the R.O.I.
What makes the short term financial pain of a remodel worth it is the long term financial gain.
You can expect to recoup at least 85% of your remodeling expenses, if you remain in your home at least 10 years.
Don’t Let Procrastination be Your Problem
Your lifestyle and interests have changed, but your home hasn’t. Why wait to remodel your residence?
Worried about the cost? Consider this: what would it cost you not to move ahead with the remodel? What would it cost you in stress, time and money to continue to make do with a home that doesn’t work for you anymore?
Don’t Get Trapped by “Trendy.”
What’s “in” today may be “out” tomorrow.
Many armchair decorators forget that remodeling rule of thumb, and end up regretting it at resale time.
You’re better off avoiding the latest, greatest paint color fads you see on some home and garden channel, and opting for more subdued colors instead.
Go with the Pro
If you’re spending a lot of energy trying to remodel your kitchen yourself, you’re probably wasting it.
You may soon realize that you lack the time, temperament or talent to handle the dozens of decisions that go into the remodel: from cabinets to countertops, from flooring to furniture. You may become overwhelmed with the “devil in the detail” as you confront questions about drawer depth, door hinges, cabinet pulls, and a whole lot more.
Make a Plan, Stan
Remodel your kitchen with logic, as well as luxury in mind.
A lot of do-it-yourselfers waste a whole lot of money because they fail to plan their remodel. They think too much about what they want, and too little about what they need.
Focus on the Future
Too many older Montana homeowners are paying the price now, both physically and financially, for the safety amenities they should have installed before.
Don’t make that mistake. If you plan on remaining in your residence, plan now to include features that will serve you as you age and become less mobile. Features like non-slip floors, bathroom “grab” bars, wheelchair-accessible doorways and enhanced lighting.
