Cadence Vertical Blinds by Hunter DouglasAs the housing market rebounds many homeowners have more options than they did a few years ago. Still, deciding to stay in your home and remodel or sell and move on is a tricky decision. If you love the area and your Connecticut neighborhood, then a little remodeling might just give you the house of your dreams without the hassle and expense of a move.

Survey Says – Remodel!

To find out if remodeling your home is your best option, ask yourself these questions:

  • What is my motivation for a home change? For example, do you need a bigger kitchen, or would just a facelift do?
  • Is there a big event coming up that I need to be ready for, such as the holidays, a graduation, or a new baby?
  • Can I live through a remodel?
  • Do I need to plan out my remodeling project over time or do it all at once?
  • Do I need to hire a professional or can I do some of it on my own?
  • Do I have a realistic budget?

Remodel Right

  • Wallpaper or paint to create brighter rooms and a fresh new look.

Unless you’re doing all your remodeling yourself, you’ll need to select vendors and contractors. Look for partners who will listen to you and will make your project a top priority. Although remodeling can be costly, it’s not a time to make selections on price. Consider product quality and manufacturer reputation for long-lasting window treatments, flooring, and wall coverings.
