Looking to do some home improvements? How do you make sure your renovation upgrades are worth it? Will you see a return on investment? The biggest question you should be asking yourself is “Is it for now or is it forever forever?”
Yes, it’s important to update with the times of say a modern kitchen. The value of a high- end, extremely functional kitchen with up-to-date appliances will always be a big part of evaluating a home’s value, especially when it comes to putting it on the market. The important decisions really come when designing and adding your finishes. If this is going to be your forever home and you really aren’t worried about recouping your investment then go-nuts! Some of our most incredible jaw-dropping projects are from clients willing and able to take risks and the pay-off can be huge!
For those who see their current home as an investment and perhaps a stepping stone to their forever home then maybe it’s better to play it safe. When we say safe we mean go for those finishes and elements that are truly timeless. A white kitchen with granite or marble countertops that’s open-concept for a place to both cook and entertain is always going to keep its value. This will allow most people to envision themselves in the space and because it’s a blank canvas, the possibilities to personalize are endless. To keep things fresh while actually living in the space, you can bring your personality out with fun accessories and cookware. Having a few go-to colors in the same hue is all you need to create a vibe of your own. If you have a place to add art, this will also bring personality to your space. Regardless of whether it’s for now or forever one thing remains true, if done right, having built-in cabinetry in your home always adds value!
