Toronto Home Renovation by Sticks & Stones Construction
Home renovations are a sure-fire way to increase your home’s appearance, liveability, energy efficiency and, of course, market value. In the realm of home improvement projects kitchen renovations are king, and for lots of reasons we’ll get into below. However, kitchens aren’t the only place where a homeowner can harvest long term value and increase the liveability rating of their home. Bathroom renovations also carry significant panache and basement renovations are the home addition under your feet waiting to happen. At Sticks and Stones in Toronto we take a big picture view of home renovations and that means keeping an open mind while being both innovative and imaginative.
The Renovation as Home Upgrade
As any experienced reno professional knows every aspect of the home’s interior is a candidate for an upgrade. Below we’re going to focus on 4 renovation projects that typically produce both excellent ROI and result in a more liveable home.
Kitchens: The Upgrade Everyone Wants
Kitchens are the most popular focus of home renovations and typically return nearly 100% of your investment. Whether you intend to replace the cabinet faces, flooring, build a service island, replace the countertops or all of the above, you’ll enjoy a slew of benefits from upgrading the kitchen. But why do so many people focus their renovation efforts in the kitchen? In a word: history. Cooking and eating together has been part of the human experience from the time of our earliest ancestors. As such the modern kitchen serves the same purpose as the campfires of old. It’s where we share sustenance and renew bonds. It’s the heart and soul of the house. Therefore it’s only natural that when people want to engage in home renovation that adds value they think kitchens first.
Basements: The Home Upgrade That Expands Possibilities
Renovating the kitchen is sure to pay both financial and quality of life dividends, but there’s one element of the home’s interior that is all too often overlooked when folks are kicking around remodeling ideas, and that’s the basement. The basement typically represents up to a third of your home’s available floorspace yet in most Toronto homes it’s allowed to sit unused year after year; a kind of medieval appendage on your 21st century dream house. Instead of just accepting that of your home is off limits, enlist the help of Sticks and Stones to integrate your basement into the daily life of your house. A basement is a blank canvas waiting for you to create something with it whether that’s a home entertainment centre, a home office, an in-law suite or playrooms for the kids.
Bathrooms: The Upgrade That Nurtures
When shopping for a new home most potential buyers typically make a beeline for the kitchen. If they don’t like what they see the chances they’ll buy the home are drastically reduced. Many will simply cut the tour short and move on to the next house. However, if they like what they see in the kitchen where do you think most head next? According to realtors their next stop is the bathroom. That’s because the modern bathroom is about as far as it can possibly be from the cold, rank outhouse of old. It’s more spa than bathroom; a place of regeneration and renewal. As such it’s key to nurturing people’s feelings of wellbeing. So if you’re looking for a way to ramp up home value and add liveability and comfort to your home a bathroom renovation is the way to go.
Playrooms: Upgrading for the Kids
Most renovations are focused on pleasing the adults in the house and that’s entirely understandable. At the same time, however, if you have young children they don’t have to be left out of the remodeling equation. If you’re of a mind to renovate the basement, including a playroom for the kids is a great way to give them the room they need while consolidating their stuff in one space, rather than having it scattered underfoot around the house. On the other hand if your plans call for the renovated basement to be a dedicated home theatre you may be able to carve a playroom out of space that’s freed up on the first floor by the new entertainment centre downstairs. Either way, providing the kids their own space is a great way for them to share in the benefits of home renovations.
Upgrades Made Simple with Sticks and Stones
When contemplating remodeling projects for your home it’s crucial to keep an open mind and think outside the box. Renovation means to ‘restore’ or ‘revitalize’ and as such it’s a concept that can be applied to any aspect of your home’s interior from attic to basement. Renovating the kitchen or bath, transforming the basement into a home theatre or creating a dedicated playroom for the kids are all projects that will yield real and lasting value. If you’re looking for affordable renovation projects that will pay off in both the short and long term, any of the above will suit you fine.
