If you’re planning a home remodel, chances are that someday you want to see a return on your investment in the form of a higher sale price when it comes time to move on to a new home. Unfortunately, with all of the planning that goes into a home remodel, it can be easy to fall into certain mistakes that may actually make your home harder to sell. In today’s blog, we offer some advice on how to avoid common home remodel mistakes so that you’re left with a home you love and one that buyers will too!
The Biggest York Home Remodel Mistakes You Should Avoid
Think through how it will be used
One mistake many homeowners make is to pursue an idea that they haven’t completely thought through. For example, if you’re thinking about adding a patio off the bedroom, it may seem like a romantic addition. But do you plan on using the patio for entertaining? Will it bother you that guests have to walk through your bedroom to access the patio? And if you’re a fan of summer BBQs, how do you feel about the idea of your bedroom smelling like charcoal and grilled meat after a party? With a little more thought, a run-of-the-mill backyard patio might make a whole lot more sense.
Balance form and function
While it may be a whole lot cheaper to purchase mismatched cabinets that you found at a secondhand store, buyers may look sideways at a kitchen that looks like it was cobbled together from disparate elements. It is important to focus on creating a coherent visual aesthetic if you want future buyers to buy in to your home.
Focus on an intuitive layout
While it’s important to leave your personal stamp on your home, you also don’t want to confuse guests and potential buyers with a confusing layout. Nobody wants to wander the halls of an unfamiliar home searching for the bathroom so don’t tuck it away in a unintuitive corner. Your home should be easy to navigate for both you as well as possible future buyers.
