Title: Renovating Versus Remodeling; What’s The Difference?


1
Renovating Versus Remodeling Whats The
Difference?
2
  • While the average person might use the words
    renovate and remodel as if they both have the
    same meaning, they are in fact, quite different.
    The dictionary definition of the word renovate,
    is to restore to a good state of repair, while
    for remodel, the definition is to change the
    structure, shape, or appearance of something.
  • So, if youre a homeowner seeking to make some
    improvements to your home, such as giving your
    kitchen a professional makeover either for your
    personal use or to help sell the property and
    increase its value youll need to be clear on
    what exactly it is that you plan to do, before
    engaging with a local kitchen remodeling or
    renovation firm.

3
  • Lets look at kitchen renovating in a little more
    detail
  • Restoring a space, or making it new again with a
    kitchen renovation
  • When planning to renovate the kitchen in your
    apartment, you might find it useful to think of
    it as a revamp, if youre confused between the
    two terms. Updating and improving your kitchen
    without making any structural changes (which
    would make it a kitchen remodel), is classed as a
    kitchen renovation.

4
  • If thinking about your kitchen in terms of
    renewing it or restoring it to its former glory,
    it would include such work as re-painting,
    re-facing cabinets, and installing new fixtures
    and fittings, to name but a few. Upgrading the
    kitchen to bring it in line with other kitchens
    in your locality especially if youre planning
    to sell the property would typically involve
    making the kitchen more usable, attractive and
    modern.
  • Since no structural changes are made with a
    kitchen renovation, every alteration and upgrade,
    is essentially cosmetic, but that doesnt mean
    that theyre of any less worth than a remodel.
    What it does mean, however, is that if your
    budget is limited, you can still make the most of
    your kitchen and use it to help sell your
    property, or simply enjoy your apartment to a
    greater degree.

5
  • When done professionally and with appropriate
    foresight, creativity and planning, a kitchen
    renovation can significantly increase the chances
    of you being able to sell the property, and
    depending upon the extent and standard of work
    carried out, could even see you sell your
    apartment for more.
  • Change the shape or appearance of a space with a
    kitchen remodel
  • Requiring a substantially higher budget than your
    standard kitchen renovation project, a kitchen
    remodel also takes a lot more planning, and
    typically benefits from professional assistance,
    such as from a construction firm who specialize
    in apartment remodeling.

6
  • Kitchen remodeling projects usually involve
    changing the use of a space, and completely
    transforming the entire layout of a room by
    reconfiguring the floor plan.
  • With kitchen remodeling, homeowners may choose to
    open the space up by changing it structurally and
    combining it with other rooms in the apartment,
    such as the dining or living room. Or simply make
    it a large open plan space with a convenient
    kitchen island for sitting or cooking at.

7
  • Essentially, remodeling can make an old, tired or
    cramped kitchen look and feel like an entirely
    new, more usable space, and while it is a bigger
    project to take on than a kitchen renovation
    project, it has so many benefits that its always
    a worthwhile investment.
  • You might be clear now on the difference between
    renovating and remodeling, but if youre unsure
    as to what is the best course of action for your
    apartment kitchen, consult (usually for free)
    with a local construction firm, who can talk you
    through your options in greater detail.
