When it comes to making changes in your home, we all want to get the best bang for our buck. Sometimes that means being able to swap out a certain product for something cheaper. However, there are a few products that are worth spending extra on to be sure you get a quality product.
Invest in Quality Tile - Not all tile products are the same. Some may look similar and you may think that the cheapest one may be your best bet, however, this can be a costly mistake. Cheaper tile can change color over time, break easier and be much harder to install. Tile needs to be strong enough not to break if it needs to be cut to fit a space and you want something that will last. Do your research and get a good product.
Invest in Built-Ins - In a high end kitchen, storage space is always the most important need. Adding a built in buffet, hutch or other cabinet space will increase the functionality of the kitchen and give it a custom look. Yes, it does cost more than floating shelves, but, having that extra space will be worth the extra money.
Invest in the Exterior - Adding a larger porch, updating your landscaping or changing your front door can add some much needed curb appeal to your home. An attractive home never goes out of style and your neighborhood will be better for it as well.
Invest in Your Roof - The farmhouse, metal roof has been a bit trendy lately, however, it is also an eco-friendly choice. They cost about 20% more, but, you will likely never have to replace that roof again while you are in the home and the roof absorbs a great amount of heat making it a good economic decision for homeowners.
Invest in a Pro - Using a designer, an architect or a contractor to help you with your renovations will be a great investment into your biggest asset. They will know how to make things look right, work right and know the best way to use your budget wisely. Having expert knowledge and training is always worth the added cost.
