How A Renovated Home Can Enhance Your Life
Most people know that a home renovation transforms a home, customizes it, and makes the space more livable. However, many people don’t realize that a home renovation can greatly improve the quality of life for you and your family. Here are some key ways a renovation makes your home a more enjoyable place to live.
1. Reducing Potential Fire Risk
Home fires can result in injuries and fatalities. Of course, home fires also cause millions of dollars a year in damage. Targeted home renovations can reduce fire risk and increase safety. Fires in the home can start from faulty electrical wiring, chimneys in disrepair, and even dirty dryer ducts.
Home renovations that include upgrading electrical systems, chimney repair, and cleaning/replacing ductwork reduce the fire risk. Other renovations, like upgrading your fire alarm system and ensuring windows and doors are up to code, can also reduce fire risks.
2. Making Your Home More Energy-Efficient
According to Canada Mortgage and Housing, about 50% of Canadians do home renovations to improve their personal experience in the home, 29% report they are renovating for lifestyle choices, and 29% choose renovation for maintenance and safety. Fully functional windows and doors fall under the latter category of essential renovations for energy efficiency.
Entry doors, windows, and garage doors are all contributing factors to your home’s energy use. Replacement of windows and doors will cut down on the sources of drafts and air leaks in your home, which will help lower the cost of your energy bills.
3. Boosting Your Home’s Equity Value
The value of your home can be upgraded with key high-end renovations. One that will enhance both your home’s equity and your own quality of life is a newly renovated kitchen. Increased cabinet space, an open concept to make the space easier to move around, and a total visual upgrade are some prime reasons that kitchen renovations are made. Since kitchen renovations are so popular, you will be greatly raising the value of your home.
Home renovation is an excellent way to add value to your home and lifestyle and to satisfy both you and your family.
