Remodeling Often an Alternative to Selling

Remodeling wtih New Window TreatmentsAs the housing market improves, many homeowners in the Baltimore area are considering the pros and cons of remodeling versus selling and moving. People who love their neighborhood are finding that making some changes to their home makes more sense than the hassle and expense of a move. With a new showroom in Marriottsville, we’re working with many new clients as they choose window treatments, paint, and wallpaper for their remodeling project.

Remodeling Vs. Moving

Making a list of what you like and dislike about your home is a great starting point. Then ask yourself:

  • What is my motivation for remodeling? 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?

Choosing Your Remodeling Vendors

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. Before you make any product decisions, make sure you understand warranty and lifetime repair specifics.

Planning Your Remodeling Project

Having a well thought out plan in mind before you jump in to any remodeling project will ensure you end up with your desired results and a home that you can live in for many more years to come. If you’re not sure where to start, consider these smaller remodeling projects:

  • Wallpaper or paint to create brighter rooms and a fresh new look.
  • New window treatments to change the way light is filtered in your rooms.
  • Re-upholstered furniture to create a new color scheme or theme in your home.
