You’re ready to begin a kitchen or bath remodel in your West Palm Beachhome, but you want to make sure you’re smart. Will the changes you make be appealing to buyers if you end up putting your home on the market in a short time? Or will they seem too unique and cause your sale price to take a hit? The wise approach is to balance key ingredients in your process: current trends, moderate approaches, and a splash of your personality. Here are a few ideas for consideration.
Keep it Clean
Clean design doesn’t have to look ultra-modern. You can stick to simpler designs and more neutral colors for the major elements to keep a more timeless feel in your spaces, then add your personal style via easily changeable elements such as backsplash tile or cabinet pulls.
Make it Smart
Appliances and other fixtures now take advantage of technology to add to their functionality. Ovens can be operated via cell phone from a completely different location. Timers can be added to bathrooms to automate the ventilation system. Tankless water heaters can help either your kitchen or your bathroom become more energy-efficient.
Many builders are starting to implement what is known as universal design, a design approach based on making things functional for as many people as possible from the start, rather than accommodating later. If you find yourself in a situation where someone in your house will be using a mobility device or require another accommodation, wouldn’t it be nice to already have a space that is functional for them?
The experts at Siegel Design Group are well-versed in current trends, and they can help you get started on a kitchen or bathroom remodel plan that will please you both today and well into the future.
