Whether you are looking to add value to your home before putting it on the market or wanting to add personal value to your home by customizing it further, choosing between a bathroom remodel and kitchen remodel can be a tricky decision. Here are the top differences between kitchen remodels and bathroom remodels to help guide you to the right choice.
Return on Investment
Return on investment is how much of the money you spend on your kitchen remodel or bathroom remodel will be reflected in the value of your home. Kitchens typically cost much more to remodel than bathrooms, but they also have a higher return on investment, so a greater amount will be added to your home’s value. Kitchen remodels often end up paying for themselves over the long run, especially if you take the time to choose quality materials and new energy-efficient appliances.
Are You Moving Out?
If you aren’t moving out and love your home, think of which area you get more enjoyment out of. Do you enjoy taking a soak in the tub at the end of a long workday? Do you enjoy gathering with family and friends to entertain in the kitchen? If you spend more time in the kitchen, then that remodel will be a better investment. If you spend more time in the bathroom, then that remodel will be a better investment. Focus on the things that make your family the happiest, not only the return on investment you’ll get.
Which is More Visible to Home Buyers?
Last but not least, consider which room is more visible to prospective home buyers. The kitchen is typically in plain sight from either the front or side door, so if you are planning to sell it’s critical to make a good impression there. Homeowners who don’t like their first impressions won’t be as likely to stick around (or see the rest of your home in a favorable light).
