Renovating a home isn’t simple, however, it requires jumping innumerable hurdles, following proper channels, financial management and an eye for design. It also requires market foresight because renovations, ideally, should boost the home’s resale value. How do you ensure you’re renovating for resale? Here are a few tips to follow.
By renovating the right spaces and making deliberate, secure and energy efficient decisions, you guarantee that you’re renovating your Atlanta home not only for yourself, but also renovating for resale.]]>
Keep this in mind, as well as these other tips, if you’re considering a kitchen remodel.
Kitchen remodels are extensive and among the more expensive renovations you can make. Thus, you’ll want to guarantee you get it right the first time by following these tips, budgeting, having a master plan and making thoughtful decisions regarding each and every feature.]]>
Do…have a solid budget and professional plan in place before beginning. Many people get excited about the finished product and take shortcuts when preparing. This is the surest way to make mistakes during the remodel.
Don’t…stick to your DIY guns if you come up against projects outside of your expertise and abilities. Although you’ll spend a little extra hiring skilled labor, what you get in return with regard to quality, craftsmanship and the life of the bathroom will far outweigh your initial investment.
Do…plan for unexpected repairs. Bathrooms are wet! Unseen mold or fungal growth, even water damage, is not uncommonly uncovered during bathroom remodeling. Have some funds set aside for unforeseen issues like these.
Don’t…leave the toilet exposed. Hide it behind a partial wall, in an alcove or in a small, separate room.
Do…think big when it comes to the shower. When was the last time you used your tub? Many of us don’t have the time to soak in a large, Roman style tub. But spacious showers with upscale faucets, tile, good lighting and glass doors are in demand.
Don’t…forget about storage. From toiletries to medicine to the various sundries we require to look our best by the time we leave every day, there are several storage needs our bathrooms must meet. Provide ample space for towels and bathmats, as well.
Do…install a spacious vanity. We stand in front of our mirrors and vanities to get ourselves ready, and we need space to sit our shaving setups, makeup, blow dryers and brushes. Large vanity surfaces plus drawers for storage are important.
Don’t…order all of your materials online. You will want to see, feel and ask questions about supplies you’re using in your bathroom remodel in person.
Do…be mindful of water use and energy efficiency. Save money and resources by using low-flow faucets and toilets in your bathroom renovation.
These dos and don’ts of bathroom remodeling will not only help you stay on course, they will help to ensure that you’re upgrades are adding value to your property, as well.

Even our home inspector said he has never seen such a high quality renovation. We wouldn’t hesitate purchasing another GSD property.
Maura and Kendall were awesome to work with, and it’s obvious how much pride they take in their company.
Thanks Green Stone!

From the quality of the work to the openness of the living space, it was easy to make this house a home with our own personal touches. We love the hardwood floors, the tray ceiling, the detail of the fixtures; it is just perfect!
Thank you, Green Stone Design, for our amazing new home!
