When to consider whole home remodeling

Does the layout of your kitchen frustrate you? Do you find yourself wishing for a spa-like bathroom instead of the cramped space it is now with bad lighting and a single vanity? Do you like your home’s flow but can’t take another minute of the dated paint colors and worn-out carpeting? Love where you live and can’t imagine moving? Well, it might be time to consider a whole home remodeling project.

A whole house renovation can turn your home into a modern, functional space that fits your lifestyle and specific tastes. Redesigned and refinished kitchens, living areas and bathrooms can make an older home feel brand new.

Picking the right full home remodel contractors

There are many whole house remodel contractors in Asheville and the surrounding areas, so it’s important to pick a contractor you can trust to complete the work as you envision it, in a timely manner, and on budget. We recommend you speak with current and past clients to find out about their experience with the full home remodel contractors you’re considering. Ask questions about dependability, sticking to schedules, quality of the work, and overall satisfaction.

Once you’ve found a few whole house remodel contractors you think would be a good fit, ask for an estimate. A good contractor is going to spend the time and devote the resources needed to provide a detailed estimate. Look for transparency in this process as well as open communication. Not only do you have to trust the work, you have to trust that they’ll be fair and honest with cost.

Whole Home Remodeling

Aging in place. A common theme for full home remodeling is to plan for aging in place. Sometimes remodeling for aging in place requires reconfiguring rooms, widening hallways, and making space for an elevator or dumbwaiter, all to accommodate mobility-assistance devices and one-level living. As long as there’s a bedroom on the main level, the remodeling project may be simpler, such as removing a shower-tub combination and installing a curbless shower in its place.


Getting Started with Whole Home Remodeling

If you’ve lived in your home for a while, you likely know how you want your home to function and what’s important to change so that it fits your needs now and into the future. But, do you know how you want your home to look? We recommend starting with two tasks: get inspired and do a walk-through. Gather photos of kitchens, bathrooms, and more that reflect spaces you love. And, do a walkthrough with your whole house remodel contractor.

Whole Home Remodeling FAQ

Generally speaking, a whole home remodel is when every room gets a facelift. That said, a whole home remodel (you can also call it a renovation) can be as simple as fresh paint, updated plumbing and lighting fixtures, new appliances, new cabinets and countertops, and refinished floors. Or, it can be a complete overhaul where the entire home is reconfigured from top to bottom, including sometimes creating new spaces like bathrooms, home offices, home theaters, or wine cellars.

Yes, if you love where you live, such as in a great neighborhood, have a fantastic view, or are in a good school district, it might make more sense to renovate your home to fit your current and future needs than to move. In most cases, you’ll increase the value of your home, too. And renovating your home means the home will function as you need it to function with the look and feel you envision. From our perspective as a whole house remodel contractor, if you’re going to spend the time, energy, and resources to renovate the kitchen and bathrooms, spend a little time and resources refreshing the other rooms in your home. A fresh coat of paint, new doors, hardware and trim can go a long way without breaking the bank.

A modern, updated kitchen and updated bathrooms almost always add the most value to your home after renovations. Adding square footage, such as finishing the basement to add heated, livable space, can also add significant value to your home. While additions, such as a adding a master wing with a spa-like bathroom and dressing room, increase your square footage and increase the value of your home, it may take time to recoup the cost of an addition.

The answer to this question is, it depends on the scope of the project and what you want to achieve. If your home is in shambles, then it would make sense to tear it down and rebuild it from the foundation because the home itself is of little value. When you factor in material costs and labor costs, which can be significantly more if you’re not starting with an existing structure, it’s likely cheaper to remodel than to tear down and rebuild if your home is in good shape structurally.

None really. Currently in the home construction industry the words are used interchangeably. Technically speaking, there are differences. A renovation typically refers to restoring something that already exists. Remodeling implies reshaping or creating something so that it feels new. But don’t sweat it. We know what you mean.
