Home Renovation advice that don’t make much sense!

One often comes across home renovation advice like : You don’t have to gut the kitchen to realize an improvement in your home’s value, change the cabinet faces and your countertop and increase the value of your home immediately!!

What’s most important in any home renovation and remodelling is the effective space planning to increase the usability and flow of a space. Cabinet resurfacing will not achieve that and installing expensive granite countertop on an old cabinetry with a poor layout is waste of money.You spend the money and still don’t come away with a kitchen that is functional.

Most kitchen’s primary problem beside its unappealing aesthetic is the ineffective layout.

Hire a designer to help you get grounded in the functional and practical matters before jumping into aesthetic consideration. Interior Designers are professionally trained to do space planning. They combine aesthetic vision and practical skills and knowledge. A well planned kitchen/bathroom maximizes a home’s marketability. Avoid doing mistakes that have to undo later.

    I do agree with you, hiring the services of contractor for renovation purpose is very necessary. One of the reasons for this is that they have a good knowledge of all the process and other requirements. They can make good estimate of all material to be used in proper quantity.
