Title: Tips to Achieve a Dream Home through Remodeling


1
Tips to Achieve a Dream Home through Remodeling
(1888 PressRelease) EcoMinded Solutions offers
the best tips for a successful home remodeling
project. Most Americans want to have a home
that works. In fact, 85 percent of homeowners
feel that a walk-in pantry is a high priority, 93
percent want a laundry room, and nearly the same
amount (90 percent) want a closet to store linens
in their bathrooms.(1) Remodeling can be a great
way to transform a home from functional to a
showcase of personality and lifestyle. If 2014 is
the year to embark on a home remodeling project,
then getting all of the information together
about what you want and need to achieve your
dream home before starting the project will make
the process that much easier. According to a
study done by the Internet giant Houzz,
"Significantly more U.S. homeowners are moving
forward with renovation projects compared to this
time last year . . . A majority of the homeowners
surveyed also believe now is a good time to
remodel (53 percent), and 58 percent of those
planning projects in the next two years will hire
professional help."(2)
Before beginning your project, make sure to do
some research. What are your "must haves?" While
there may be things on your list that are simply
wishful thinking, there are likely things on your
list that are "must haves." Make sure that your
design includes those items - whether you need
space for a new baby or additional storage area
for sports equipment. It is also critical to be
open to suggestions. While you may have specific
ideas about what your home needs, you can also
look to your contractor for their opinion. They
may have innovative solutions to your most
pressing problems or may be able to offer
affordable add-ons that will give your home
personality.

Understanding your budget and how you use your
space are also important considerations. Knowing
your budget can make your home remodeling project
much easier. By communicating this with your
contractor at the beginning of your process, you
will have a better idea of what can be
realistically accomplished with the budget that
you have, preventing sticker shock at the end of
the project. Additionally, remember that you will
recoup much of what you spend on your remodeling.
In fact, according to Realtor.org, you can expect
to achieve a return on a kitchen, bathroom or
basement remodel of anywhere from 50 percent to
70 percent.(3) These changes also need to make
sense based on the way you live in your home. If
the kids dump their books and bags right by the
door and it drives everyone crazy, then adding a
new entry or additional storage may be just the
right solution. Likewise, if you entertain a lot,
then adding a new great room with a guest bath
dedicated for that area may save you time and
stress if someone stops by unexpectedly. Remodeli
ng can be one of the best ways to achieve the
home of your dreams. By collecting your "must
have" list, being open to suggestions from your
contractor, and knowing your budget, you will be
on your way to a successful - and beautiful - new
living space. Call Eco Minded Solutions today for
