First, set a budget…and stick to it! AZFI offers flooring in every price range.
A few things to consider when determining a realistic budget:
- How long are you going to continue living in your home?
- What is your home value?
- How old is your home?
- What are your priorities?
- Remember, as you remodel your home it comes at a cost. Your return on your investment will be about 75% to 85% of what you spend. For every $1,000 you invest your home will increase in value approximately 75% to 85%.
- Kitchens and bathrooms are the most important. Flooring, light fixtures, window coverings, dress the house and set the design theme.
- When remodeling remember that based on your home’s value and location will have an impact on the size of your budget. The products that buyers expect in a $200,000 house are different than a $750,000 house. However, always remember that it’s your home you live in it. Make it what you want.
- Don’t overspend or underspend. Regardless of your budget…enjoy your surroundings.
- Floor preparation will make or break the quality of the job done. Your new floor is no better than the floor it goes over!
- Kitchens are the center of your home. Everyone winds up in the kitchen when you have friends and family over. Make it an expression of yourself. Backsplashes, kitchen faucets, color, all go to making your kitchen environment your own.
- Accent walls are used more and more lately. Consider brick look tile, laminate flooring hardwood on tile for a pop of color and texture to enhance any room in your home; entry walls, bedrooms, dining rooms.
- Don’t forget your fireplace. Make the fireplace a focal point of the room. Use decorative materials, maybe a pattern or a unique mantle.
- Window coverings finish a room. Not only can you add color and texture, you can control the amount of light and here in the desert, the amount of heat in a room. Help prevent fabrics from fading quickly. The rays of AZ are intense, make allowances in your balance to add new window coverings for that complete look and feel of your project.
