Oh yes the Joys of Remodeling
Recently my husband gifted me with a new kitchen! How exciting right?
I am not going to tell you that we didn’t experience headaches because we did. The biggest headache was not able to use my kitchen for at least a month. All the planning in the world will not prevent this inconvenience.
Once the project is complete there is a sense of joy! Accomplishment something that you can see and touch.
Referring to the info-graphic the kitchen gives you a sense of JOY because it is bright and shiny. I like JOY!
Last year I also “Tidy Up” my home, it was not a Closet renovation but it felt really good. I can see why it has a JOY factor of 10.
We still need to paint the entire house, I can’t wait to experience that JOY!
Now on to how it affects your return on investment, The new roof has a return on Investment of 107%, that is hard for me to swallow as a consumer because I like bright shiny things. But buyers like to know that things are going to last. Same thing goes for hardwood floors those ROI numbers are 100%! Wow you can’t go wrong there.
So if you are thinking about a home renovation, consider why you are doing it and will it bring you JOY or $$$$.
