There is no better time to do a custom kitchen and bathroom design in your dream home. With the home value market on the rise in the Memphis area, now is the time to upgrade your home to increase property value or resale value. Choosing the right options for renovating your custom home can seem a bit daunting, but is an easy process when working with an experienced contractor. Create flow and value with ease using these tips. Now the hard part, what is first on the list?
You need a kitchen and bathroom that works for you and your family. Maybe the family was much smaller when the home was originally purchased? Now you have a larger family and need more space in the critical areas: the kitchen and bathroom. A renovated kitchen can open up the space for interaction with friends and family. A well designed kitchen can be the focal point of the home where everyone feels welcomed and never feels like they will miss a moment of the action.
If your bathroom on the first floor isn’t functional for family events, upgrading this bathroom to a half bath with more space may be a great option to create more sink space and storage in the bathroom. These options can not only improve the usefulness of the space for your family, but will likely be enjoyed by other families, increasing value on the market.
Storage and Organization
Who doesn’t want to have more space in their home? A well designed custom remodel can greatly increase not only your storage space, but also the living area in your home, while also retaining the ablity to stay organized. There are plenty of custom options when adding storage space to your kitchen, living room and bathroom such as, custom cabinets, countertops, closets, wall storage, walk in pantry, custom drawers, and maybe even a kitchen island. For something a little more try hanging shelves for your pots and pans above the kitchen island. All these little touches will help build your dream custom kitchen and bathroom.
Among many issues facing homeowners today, energy conservation seems to be near the top of every homeowners priority list. But let’s think outside the box: add a skylight to the kitchen for natural lighting. This creates more brightness in the room, without the added energy expenses of electrical lighting. Energy efficient windows could also help you retain heat or cool air and eliminate high gas or electric bills. Granted these custom features will help with resale value, but could also add to the custom kitchen and bathroom features.
Increased Home Value
Bathrooms and kitchens add the most value to a home. A kitchen is one of the most important rooms in a house to a potential buyer. A remodeled custom kitchen will catch the eye and appeal to potential buyers more than an outdated, congested kitchen. Some noticeable custom upgrades may be; custom backsplashes, tiles, beautiful light fixtures A custom bathroom can be a spa like retreat in your own home such as; heated floors, a soaking tub, custom vanities, his and her sinks, and a rainfall showerhead.
