While home renovations can be costly, home shoppers are optimistic they will get a positive return on their investment.

Kitchen Renovations

Upgrading a kitchen was the No.1 home renovation chosen by nearly 30 percent of new home buyers. A kitchen is the heart of your home. It’s where your family gathers for meals, and where friends meet, the kitchen is the center of daily life.

Albrite Building offers professional and affordable kitchen renovations. Our designers will create a layout that maximizes your space, budget, and vision. We will make sure your kitchen’s sink, stove, and refrigerator is positioned for a smooth flow for cooks and others walking through the kitchen.

The proper amount of kitchen cabinets, quality appliances, and durable materials are important to consider when renovating your kitchen. When selecting islands, cabinets, and shelving, choose something that is stylish and functional. A combination of glass and solid cabinet fronts can make your kitchen feel more open while offering hidden storage.

Your kitchen will most likely be out of commission during the remodel, so set up a temporary kitchen elsewhere in the house. Also, be sure to protect other parts of your house from the dust, debris, and splatters from the remodel.

Bathroom Renovations

Upgrading a bathroom was the second home renovation chosen by 25 percent of the home buyers. Bathroom renovations can include a complete remodel with a bathtub, shower, and steam room to updating the tile, vanities, and faucets. Lighting is always something to consider when remodeling your bathroom. Brighter bathroom lighting makes shaving and applying makeup easier and installing a combination of bathroom light fixtures, including wall and ceiling lights, will reduce shadows cast across your face.

Consider a layout that makes the most sense for your bathroom renovation. Some bathrooms are large, while others are long and thin, or a tight square. You may want to fit a shower or sink in a corner to save space. Think about whether you need a shower and bath, or just a shower stall. Don’t take it for granted that you need a bathtub and two sinks. Think about what will work best for you and your family.
