Is your house beginning to feel old and outdated? Perhaps your circumstances have changed and you are welcoming a baby or elderly family member into your home. Maybe you are just antsy to start a new project. Here’s how to decide if it’s time to start renovating your home:

Out of Date

If you have fixtures that are decades old or floors that are older than you are, it may be time to renovate. Those dark-stained cabinets in the kitchen can make the room feel much darker, while an upgrade to new cabinets with pearly white paint can open up the space and give it a whole new look and feel. Renovating your home for a more modern look will make you feel happier in your environment and may help you retain, or even boost, your residence’s value.

Return on Investment

Before remodeling, reflect on your current situation. If your kids are in high school and you are considering downsizing after graduation, remodeling might not be the smartest choice. If you have a major renovation in mind that requires a large financial investment, make sure that there will be a chance of recouping some of those costs when you sell your home later on. 

Need More Space

If your family has increased in size since you first moved in or the house just feels too small for your kids that are now towering teenagers, it may be time to renovate. Perhaps you have space on your lot for a home addition, or maybe you need to plan for a change in layout, like opening up walls for larger living spaces. 


If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed with clutter or getting frustrated because you don’t have enough space in your home to do the things you need to do, consider hiring a contractor like Conaway Enterprises to help you figure out what you can do to fix this issue. 

Unused Space

Has your guest room been unused for years on end? Does the table in your dining room get set only once a year? If you have unused spaces in your home such as these, consider how you could make them more functional for your family. Knock out a wall between your dining room and kitchen to create a larger entertainment area and an eating area joined to the cooking space.
