A homeowner may decide that their house does not look or “feel” the way that they want it to, and if a home feels a bit shabby or stale, the time may have come to remodel a kitchen, remodel your bathroom, or even a basement remodel job. Does anyone even want a basement remodel job done? Often, homeowners think of their basement as a dark, dirty room where odds and ends are stored, but this does not have to be the case. Basement remodel work can turn a dark or dirty room into something very accessible and fun to be in, and in fact a basement may be transformed into a lounge, a second living room, or a place where the homeowner can pursue all kinds of hobbies. A basement remodel job may be very convenient if all the rooms in the above-ground floors are dedicated to other work and cannot be changed, and if home additions such as a new room are too expensive. Basement waterproofing may also be done if the home is in an area that gets flooding every so often, and an earthquake retrofit may also be needed for an older home that’s near fault lines, such as California homes found near the San Andreas fault.
How to Remodel
Different rooms of the home may be targeted by a remodeling job, and any homeowner interested in remaking parts of the home can hire an experienced crew whose members will have the skills and materials to get the job done right. It should be noted that some renovation jobs like in the bathroom may make the home inconvenient to live in; for this reason, homeowners might schedule a house remodel service during a vacation or business trip when they will be away from the home anyway, to minimize inconvenience. Just how is this done, and what are trends of home remodeling? Many rooms are popular to remake. A Houzz survey showed that 60% of homeowners want to remodel the master bedroom, and another Houzz survey showed that one in three homeowners adopt a healthier lifestyle after their kitchen has been remodeled, since a refreshed kitchen may be a fun and convenient place to cook healthier meals in. And according to a survey by the National Association of Home Builders, bathroom remodeling stands as the most requested remodeling job in the United States, and 78% of renovations are for the bathroom.
If the kitchen is being remodeled, crews may replace the cabinets or at least replace the cabinet doors if the old doors were dirty or scratched or had bad paint, and the kitchen counters may be replaced with new, tougher materials such as granite that is attractive and practical at the same time. The floor tiles may be turn up and replaced with newer ones, and even appliances like the stove or microwave may be replaced, and the sink may also be fixed or replaced with a more attractive and water-efficient model. Someone renovating their kitchen may take stock of all their kitchen items and get rid of what they don’t want so they can find room for everything after the renovation.
Bathrooms are also popular for renovation, and crews can work with the plumbing there to put in new sinks, toilets, or even bath tubs or shower systems for more attractive and water-efficient models, which can save money on the water bill in the long run. Bedrooms can also be remodeled for new furniture or to replace the carpet if it is old or dirty.
A basement remodel job can totally transform this room. Crews can help the homeowner clear out a lot of items that they do not want anymore, and the crews may also clean up the room such as mold or cobwebs or anything else. New lighting, wall panels, and even carpeting or wood floors can be put down to make the basement attractive, along with more lighting. With the basement cleared out and made more pleasant, a homeowner can use it for a home entertainment system, and may add chairs, tables, and more for entertaining guest. Hobbies can be pursued in the remade basement, from model building and crafting to playing musical instruments to making a home workout gym with weights and cardio machines.
