Popular Renovations for Homeowners
Looking to spruce up your home and add property value, but not sure if you’re ready to move? Residential renovations are a fantastic way to improve your surroundings, boost resale value and plan for the future. At Abbey Platinum, we handle both large and small scale residential renovations. Below are a few common areas that many homeowners choose to update, along with a few details to consider.
Kitchens Given that kitchens play a central role in most homes, it’s no surprise that they are one of the most popular areas to renovate. Upgraded cabinetry, appliances, countertops, sinks and flooring can all go a long way in reviving your home and added long-term value. In addition, making sure you include eco-friendly retrofits and appliances may help you qualify for energy incentives as well.
Bathrooms Like kitchens, bathrooms are another high demand area for renovations because of the importance they play in our day to day lives. Upgrading to better lighting, tiles, plumbing or adding mobility friendly features are all common upgrades that improve quality of life, add style to your home, and ensure comfort in later years.
Basements Whether you’re considering adding a legal secondary suite to your home, or simply looking to refinish your space, there’s plenty that can be done with basements. While each project will vary greatly depending on your overall objective, examples of common renovations include adding a bathroom, installing new flooring or lighting, adding wet bars, installing in-floor heating and more.
Basements can be a trickier area to work with because of their exposure to cold and moisture. Over time, your home will shift which can compromise key components in your building’s envelope (what protects your home from the elements on the outside). With careful planning, you’re basement will be a comfortable gathering space for the whole family. And with options such as eco-friendly upgrades, renovating these vulnerable areas ensures your home will be running at its peak efficiency. Not only will you have a finished product that is pleasing to look at but this will also ensure your your home is running efficiently which will save you time and money!
