The words “remodel” and “renovate” are often used interchangeably. However, in the construction industry, these terms mean two very different things.
The term "RENOVATE" typically means to make NEW again. In the world of home construction, this includes new appliances, installing new lighting fixtures, re-painting, re-facing cabinets, or updating other finishes and fixtures. The original design of the home isn’t altered drastically, but rather, it is updated to the current design trends and standards. A room renovation in your home, especially a kitchen, not only makes the space more attractive, but also adds value to the home or property. For instance, if you’re looking to sell your home in the near future, adding stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and replacing the cabinets in your kitchen will often increase the chance of a sale and deliver a return on your investment.
The term "REMODEL" typically involves altering or changing the use of a space or floor plan. When the structure and style of a space is completely transformed, this is considered a remodel. If you want to change the layout of a room and re-configure the floor plan, you’re remodeling. In a kitchen remodel, for instance, you may decide to combine the kitchen with the living room to create an open concept kitchen layout. Or perhaps you’d like to install a kitchen island to create more functional space for cooking. Whatever it is, remodeling breathes new life into a room, giving the space a whole new look and feel. Home remodeling involves complex design considerations as well as construction, electric, and plumbing expenses, it typically costs more than renovating. For this reason, it is important to consult an experienced design build contractor or architect before you begin a remodeling project. If you are interested in remodeling your home, it always pays to make sure that your project gets done right the first time around.
