When you think about home improvement projects, you might immediately think about the ways you want to update your home for a fresh, like-new look. However, beauty is not the only benefit of remodeling!

According to a recent Forbes article, what 35% of homeowners enjoyed the most about investing in home improvement projects? Better functionality and livability.

Here are several specific reasons home improvement projects will benefit your home’s livability:

  1. Optimized Space
  2. Improved Energy Efficiency
  3. Additional Living Areas
  4. Upgraded Materials

Optimized Space

Sometimes, a room is simply not all you need it to be! Whether the issue is a small space, impractical placement of countertops, not enough storage, or the wrong flooring, you know that your home life will improve drastically with some renovations.

This is especially common for heavily-used living areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects happen to be the two areas that bring the most satisfaction to our clients!

Improved Energy Efficiency

Did you know that replacing your windows, specifically, can actually improve your home’s energy efficiency and overall value? This is because a window’s insulation value goes down the more time passes. But depending on the type of glass you choose when replacing your windows, and whether you add a low-emissivity coating to the glass, you could save as much as 50% on your home’s energy expenses.

In addition to reducing your HVAC costs, new windows obviously can improve your home’s livability in terms of views, better lighting, and home’s overall curb appeal.

Additional Living Areas

Have you reached the point where you just need more space? Custom home additions and room expansions are a practical and popular choice for Nashville home improvement projects, and for good reason!

Maybe you need another bedroom, a home office, a breakfast nook, or an outdoor living area. There are other creative ways to expand your square footage, as well. Here are some of the custom additions we specialize in at Donnelly Timmons:

  • Master bedroom extensions
  • Additional bedroom options
  • Basement build-outs
  • Above-garage additions
  • Detached living quarters

Upgraded Materials

This year, the Remodeling Impact Report found that the top motivators for kitchen remodels, specifically, were to upgrade worn-out surfaces, finishes, and materials (32%), and to add features that improved livability (20%). It makes sense: the materials and surfaces in your kitchen are going to be used regularly and will need to withstand kitchen tools, heat, spills, and more.

Other home improvement projects that would benefit from upgraded materials in the short- and long-term include new flooring, cabinets, countertops, doors, storage, and decks and patios. If you’re living with a disability, upgrading your home to include a residential elevator is also a common benefit. The possibilities are endless.
