Real estate values have been going up significantly in the last few years. This can be both good and bad. If you’re a homeowner, you may now have a lot of equity in your home. If you are in the market to buy, things have gotten more expensive.
If you already own a home and don’t see it as your “forever” home, you may consider remodeling to get your dream home. Or, if you are planning to purchase a home and have decided to buy an older home that is more affordable, choosing a home with your remodeling plan in mind is a smart idea.
Some remodeling projects are more popular than others, so here’s a list to help inspire you. These popular remodeling projects not only give you an idea of what you may want in a remodel, but can signal what the market desires and help resale value when you go to sell.
Here Are the Most Popular Home Remodeling Projects:
Many Americans are choosing to remodel their bathrooms, adding a modern and luxurious feel. Some of the more popular things on the bathroom remodeling shopping list:
- Walk-In Shower
- Claw Foot Tub
- Upgraded Smart Plumbing Fixtures
- Heated Floors (in colder climates)
- Luxury Bathroom Lighting
Estimates for an average bathroom remodel are around $11k according to Home Advisor. Prices can go way up from there depending on the size and scope of your bathroom remodel.
The kitchen is another very popular room of the house when it comes to remodeling projects.
According to BobVila.com,
“The kitchen is the heart of the home, and it's also one of the most popular—and expensive—renovations a homeowner can undertake. With the numerous purchases required, including appliances, cabinets, and countertops, along with construction and installation costs, a kitchen renovation can set you back a pretty penny. Costs range from $22,000 for a minor face-lift to $131,000 for an upscale remodel.”
Whole House Renovations:
Also according to BobVila.com, "When it's time to upgrade a home, particularly if you've just moved in, sometimes it makes sense to tackle everything at once so you can start with a clean slate. Whole-home renovations, which come in third on the NAHB’s list of most popular remodeling projects, can set homeowners back quite a bit. They come in at an average cost of $46,000, but the range stretches from $18,000 to $75,000."
Room additions are another popular major home remodeling option. If you need more space to stretch out - such as an extra bedroom for a growing family or a home office, then a room addition would be the perfect remodeling project. Most homeowners spend between $22-74k according to HomeGuide.com estimates.
