Sooner or later, nearly every home becomes outdated or no longer fits your lifestyle. Although moving is certainly an option, it’s not the only one. Remodeling your Seacoast New Hampshire, Southern Maine or Northern Massachusetts home can give you the features and spaces you need. These six benefits make remodeling an excellent choice.
No Need to Call a Moving Company
No matter how well you plan your move, moving tends to be a tiring, stressful experience. Packing can take much longer than you expected, particularly if you underestimate just how much stuff you’ve accumulated over the years. Decluttering and packing can take weeks and occupy much of your free time.
When you choose to improve your home with a remodel, there’s no need to pack up all of your belongings. In fact, your renovation will give you the space you need and want without requiring you to make any major changes to your life.
You Can Stay in a Location You Love
If you can’t imagine ever living anywhere else, remodeling makes perfect sense. Although you can buy a house in any town in Maine, New Hampshire, or Massachusetts, the building itself is just one aspect of what makes your house a home.
It’s hard to move when the neighborhood is perfect, the neighbors friendly, and the school district outstanding. A short commute and easy drive to stores, restaurants, and attractions may make your home’s location particularly convenient. Why leave your home you’ll have to spend more time on the road or train or won’t be near the services you need? When you renovate, you’ll get a house that feels brand new without actually having to move.
Anything Is Possible with a Renovation
You set the limits for your renovation. In fact, you can expand your kitchen, add a new master bedroom suite, expand your outdoor entertaining area, create a wine cellar in the basement, or turn a warren of rooms into an open floor plan.
Not sure if it’s possible to carry out the type of renovation you have in mind? If you can dream it, a remodeler can build it. After working with hundreds of homeowners in Seacoast New Hampshire, Northern Massachusetts, and Southern Maine, your home remodeling team at Oxland Builders has handled almost every type of remodel imaginable. They’ll help you make your renovation dreams come true with a variety of innovative solutions and expert renovation techniques and craftsmanship.
A Remodel Makes Your Life More Convenient
Old appliances, illogical floor plans, and drafty windows or doors can make living in an older home inconvenient and uncomfortable. When you remodel, you can add plenty of modern features and amenities, including:
- Smart Appliances: Thanks to Smart technology, you can use your phone to turn up the heat in your home on the way home, turn the oven on or off, or remotely glance inside your refrigerator during a shopping trip.
- Programmable Thermostat and Zoned Heating and Cooling: Programmable thermostats aren’t new, but the most technologically advanced thermostats have features that might be new to you. In fact, some thermostats learn your heating and cooling preferences and automatically adjust the temperature in your home after just a few days of observation. Do you like one part of your home warmer than the other? Zoned heating and cooling gives you the flexibility to adjust the temperature in specific areas of your home.
- More Storage: Older homes never seem to have enough storage. During your renovation, you can expand the size of bedroom closets, add a pantry to your kitchen, or create a large storage closet to hold your sports equipment and seasonal items.
- Heated Floors: Heated floors may be a luxury in other parts of the country, but they’re practically a necessity on the Seacoast. Adding them to your bathroom or kitchen means stepping into the kitchen or bathroom on a cold winter morning is no longer a shocking experience.
You’ll Finally Have Room to Entertain
When entertainment space is lacking in your home, rearranging your floor plan or building an addition to your home is an excellent option. Combine your seldom-used formal family room with your dining room to create a large hybrid entertaining space, or ask your remodeler to build a home theater or a dining room big enough to seat your large extended family for Thanksgiving dinner.
Don’t forget about outdoor spaces when you’re thinking about entertainment possibilities. Adding porches, decks, and patios complete with outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, or pits and ample seating area expands entertaining options.
Your Home Will No Longer Be the Neighborhood Ugly Duckling
Ugly, outdated homes may be functional, but living in an unattractive or cluttered environment can leave you feeling stressed and depressed. A remodel gives you the opportunity to upgrade your home and incorporate modern finishes and styles. Thanks to your renovation, your home will finally reflect your taste, not the previous owners’. In fact, you’ll actually want to spend time in your updated kitchen or bathroom when the room contains the latest features, finishes, and amenities.
