3 Important Areas to Consider During Remodeling September 12, 2019

3 Important Areas to Consider During Remodeling, Kailua, Hawaii

Whether you’re preparing your home for sale or simply updating your space, remodeling is always a worthwhile venture. It opens up more space in your home, provides an opportunity to update old plumbing fixtures, and improves the aesthetics of your home. As you begin planning your project, here are a few areas to prioritize. 

3 Essential Remodeling Steps

1. Remove Walls

Not every wall in your home necessarily needs to be there. Some were put in for decor, such as smaller half walls. Others were built to divide the space. Removing certain walls can expand living space and make your floor plan more accessible. Just make sure the wall you want to take out isn’t load-bearing.

2. Replace Pipes & Old Plumbing Fixtures

Plumbing FixturesRemodeling is the optimal time to see if any plumbing fixtures need to be moved or replaced. If you’re remodeling the bathroom or kitchen and decide to relocate the fixtures, you’ll need to get a plumbing contractor’s assessment to determine the feasibility. They can also check on the condition of your pipes. Even if the pipes still work, those over 20 years old are more likely to experience problems later on. Maintenance or replacement now can save you money by preventing water damage from burst pipes.

3. Update Cosmetic Features

As the largest features in the kitchen, the countertops and cabinetry set the tone for the space. If they’re worn or outdated, you may not enjoy spending time in your kitchen. In addition to a boost in visual appeal, a minor kitchen remodel that involves refacing cabinets and replacing old countertops yields an 80% return on investment.
