Real Smart Remodeling


Remodeling your home can be difficult and tricky at times. Getting specifically to the point, if you’re attempting to remodel you need to add a measure of intelligence and critical thought to the process. Otherwise you might end up fixing up your place, but the remodeling won’t go as well as it necessarily should.



Not only do you want your home to look aesthetically pleasing, but you also should focus on making changes that will make your property more valuable. Performing a kitchen remodel if your existing kitchen is run down, old, and worn out will definitely add more money to your bottom line when it’s time to sell.

Other valuable intelligent renovations include fixing up your bathroom, the bedrooms, and maybe adding an addition to make the home even bigger. At the end of the day, you should renovate your home however you want. Just try to make intelligent choices during the remodeling process. We’ve shared some suggestions to help you get started below.


Transforming Your Kitchen with a Total Makeover

One of the most intelligent remodeling ideas is to modernize and redo your kitchen from top to bottom. If your current kitchen has old and outdated appliances, ugly linoleum on the kitchen floors, and outdated wallpaper then it’s time for a major change.

If you remodel your kitchen strategically, you’ll definitely add to the value of your home and it will absolutely look and feel a heck of a lot more attractive. The modern appliances are great because you’ll be using the best stuff available instead of your old and outdated refrigerator, stovetop, and more.

And speaking of appliances, it’s best to give your kitchen a complete appliance makeover if your stuff falls under the following criteria. 

  • Are your current appliances energy-efficient or not? 
  • Are your appliances old and outdated? 
  • Do you have gorgeous stainless steel appliances like refrigerators, stoves, etc.?
  • How did you answer the questions above? 
  • Did you say no to most of the questions? 

If so, then you definitely need to upgrade your kitchen appliances as soon as possible.

Making these small and inexpensive changes will actually add more value to your home than the money you end up putting in. So it’s a win-win situation because you get better stuff and make your home more valuable at the same time.

Adding new kitchen cabinets is also a great idea in many cases. But if you like your existing cabinets think about replacing the hardware and hinges instead. This will make your cabinets look new without actually having to replace them entirely.

Add an Additional Bathroom to Make Your Life More Convenient

Additional Bathroom


Convenience is everything in this day and age. We all lead busy lives and we hardly have enough time to eat, sleep, and breathe. Forget about waiting for your spouse to finish up in the bathroom. You don’t have time for that and you shouldn’t have to wait anyway.

It’s time to finally pull the trigger and finally build the new bathroom that you’ve always wanted. This addition is a great idea because it’s not only going to give you additional time, space, and a bathroom of your own, it will also add value to your existing home.

As an example, let’s say you end up spending $20,000 to put in your brand-new modern bathroom. If you decide to turn around and sell your home, you could end up getting an extra $35,000 for your property just because you put in this addition.

Adding a new bathroom to your home is definitely a major undertaking. When you do, make sure you use modern appliances, today’s best fixtures, and everything else in between.

Completely Reinvent One of the Spaces in Your Home

Spaces in Your Home

Do you have wasted space in a large basement or attic? Why continue to let this space go to waste when you can use it instead? How about a loft above the garage? Is this additional space waiting for you to finally do something with it?

You can no longer let these great spaces go to waste. This would be a foolish thing to continue to do. Instead, go through one of these spaces and completely reinvent it by fixing it up from top to bottom.

You can turn the loft above your garage into a guest room or a new bedroom for one of your kids. Or you can turn the basement into a Man Cave with tv installation for the hubby or a playroom for the children. Even better, you can turn the attic into a bedroom, an office, or a place to go to make your art in peace and quiet.

It may seem pricey to completely reinvent one of these rooms. If you sink $10,000 into the space, you can probably raise your home’s asking price by $25,000 or more. So this transformation is definitely worth it in the end.

Bottom Line

Remodeling your home is unquestionably going to be a big challenge. But if you do it intelligently, it’s going to be a challenge that pays dividends over the long run. You will make your home much more valuable than it is in its current condition, so spending the money is a great idea because it’s going to pay you more in the end when you finally decide to sell your home.

Are you ready to make some intelligent remodeling changes? Use the suggestions shared today and your home will look and feel absolutely amazing. Plus you’ll be able to sell it for much more than its current value when the time comes.
