5 Signs It’s Time To Renovate

When you bought your house, you couldn’t have been more excited. It was the perfect location, the perfect house and you were in love. But after a few years the honeymoon phase wears off. You begin wishing that your house was bigger, or more modern or just worked better for your current lifestyle.

Sound familiar? Then it might be time for you to renovate your home and get back to that honeymoon phase. Here’s 5 signs that it may be time for you to renovate your home and turn it into your dream nest.

1. Your guests feel nostalgic

The world moves quickly, and so does style. Do you ever have guests over to your home and find them getting nostalgic? Like they’ve walked through a door that transported them back to the 80’s? “My Gran used to have that same wallpaper!” - Something that a homeowner never wants to hear.

A renovation is the best way to shake the old styles of the past and help your home achieve its true potential. Whether that’s a whole home renovation, a kitchen renovation or a living room renovation – a little reno will go a long way.

Not only will your house increase in value to the market, it will increase in value to you too and make you happier in your updated space.

2. You have funds available

The one thing that’s necessary for every renovation – the proper budget. If you’ve got the funds to create your dream nest, why not? Investing in your home will almost always increase your home’s value and make your living space more enjoyable!

3. You're in it for the long-haul

60% of people say that moving is the most stressful thing they’ve ever had to go through. If you’re one of those 60% and you don’t want to leave the home you’re in, then don’t!

Renovating your home can make it feel like an entirely new space. New fixtures, updated flooring and modern appliances can turn your outdated home into a candidate for Architectural Digest. Well, maybe not a candidate for Architectural Digest but it will make you feel like it could be.

So don’t move, stay in that house you love! Because with a renovation, you can easily turn it into your dream nest.

4. You see better ways to use your space

Have you considered moving because there just isn’t enough space? Do you feel like you’re excluded from the conversation when you’re in the kitchen and your guests are in the dining room? Then maybe it’s time to knock down that barrier wall and give your house more of an open concept. A renovation to free up more space is a great way to transform your house and make it more enjoyable for your current lifestyle.

5. Your Spending More Time at home

Let’s face it, we’ve all been spending more time at home than we ever have. We’ve been stuck inside our homes and dreaming of ways to improve it. With more time being spent at home, it’s time to act on those dreams. Because if you’re going to spend a majority of your time in one place, you might as well make it as enjoyable as possible!
