Market Home Makeover:
When the Home You Buy Doesn’t Meet Every Item on Your Wishlist
Let’s face it—when you buy a home, not everything about it is going to be at the top of your love list. Ideally, you’d be able to throw the whole idea of budget out the window; present your list of must-haves to your real estate agent; and just go for the gusto so that you get the home of your dreams, but most people go house hunting with the realization that they’re going to have to make some compromises. That said, it’s important to remember that when you sign on the dotted line and take the keys firmly in hand, you don’t have to settle for things the way they are now. Your new home is just that—your new home—so take the bones of what you have and make them work for you. Hire a well-reputed home remodeling contractor or a custom home builder, walk through your spaces, and let your imagination run free.
Re-crafting Your Kitchen
Does the tiny kitchen leave you craving open-concept? Just because your space is cramped, that doesn’t mean you can’t take that galley and make it grand. A kitchen remodeling contractor will be able to offer you advice on all the possibilities, pointing out which walls may be structural, how plumbing can be shifted, and how to truly maximize the room to make it fit your dreams of master chef-dom.
Soak In Your Style
The master suite—namely the bathroom—is one of the top selling points of a home, but things weren’t always that way; and the home you have may not exactly live up to your fantasies. If you don’t share the previous owner’s sentiment that brass fixtures look classy or that bathtubs look more beautiful in blue, think about what appeals to you and talk to a bath remodeling contractor. Your vision really is within reach, and with a few masterfully executed changes, you’ll be able to walk into your master bath feeling as though you’ve stepped into your own personal spa, rather than stumbling over someone else’s derailed design.
Unless you’re building a custom home, no house on the market will ever be able to fully meet every one of your expectations from the get-go. Painful as it is to remember that, it’s reality; but it’s not one that can’t be altered. At some point or another, the things you’re having to make do with right now may prove themselves just a little more than you can live with; but that doesn’t mean you’re stuck or that you’re going to have to plant a for sale sign on the front lawn. Put your personal touch on the home and make it shine—dream houses can be built one room at a time, so dream away!
