It’s the time of the year when many people are considering upgrades to their homes. And the latest research shows that bathroom and kitchen renovations are two of the most cost-effective renovation projects in terms of return on investment. To help guide you toward success, we’re offering a quick guide to kitchen and bathroom renovations in this latest post.
Choose High-Efficiency Equipment
Bathroom and kitchen renovations offer you the ideal opportunity to improve your home energy efficiency. Make sure you select new kitchen and bathroom systems that reduce your water use and energy bills over time.
For example, you might consider low flow showerheads for the bathroom and an EnergyStar-approved dishwasher for the kitchen.
Review Local Companies
One of the most important factors behind the success of your project will be the type of specialist you choose for the renovation work. You’ll need to take a look at the online reviews for all firms in the region to determine the quality of their services.
When speaking with companies, try to book a quote with at least three different firms to ensure you achieve value for money. Remember though: just because a company offers you a lower quote, doesn’t mean they offer value.
Balance the company’s quote with their experience to make an effective selection.
Book an In-Home Consultation
Before making that final decision and choosing to work with a renovation firm in the area, ensure that the firm’s reps visit your home. This will allow you the opportunity to work with them directly and to ask them questions about their experience in local renovation projects.
You’ll be able to determine their vision for the work ahead, and this should give you the information you need to ensure optimal results from the renovation.
