A home remodel can be an addition that reconfigures your entire home to finally work for you.

If you’re starting to think that your home is no longer working for your needs, you may be tempted to put up the ‘for sale’ sign. While you could trade it for something smaller or larger, depending on your need, it is almost always more cost-effective to undertake a home remodeling project.

If you are happy with the location, neighborhood, yard, and work commute, and it is just the construction that you are struggling with, adding on is the best way to upgrade your living quarters. You may be hesitant to commit to a home addition, but note that they payoff is huge and can have you falling back in love with your home again.

Don’t think of your project as an addition, think of it as a remodel. The difference is subtle, but it’s important. You don’t want different sections of your home to feel old and new – you want a seamless home where the lines between the original structure and addition and blurred. Start to think about your current space and what you like and dislike about it. You will need to assess how you can configure it to meet your needs. A general contractor will be able to help you decide what changes need to be made, too.

Since remodeling costs 25 to 50 percent of adding on, that can mean huge project savings and it may also save you on the property taxes and fuel costs associated with expanding your home. In short, you spend less, you disturb your yard less, deal with less inconvenience, get the job done faster, and live a greener life. In essence, it’s an easy solution to your home construction woes.

Be sure that you think about your home from the inside out. Don’t just tack on an addition and hope to style it to keep in tone with the home. You’ll want to reconfigure the whole space to work better, which will help you get a better overall result!
