When was the last time you really looked at the condition of your home? Are you really happy with it just the way it is? How many projects do you have that you would like to have done, especially in terms of remodeling rooms, or even the whole house? If there’s more than one, you might have some difficulty trying to figure out which project to start with.

Need

Some remodeling projects address a need in the home. Maybe it’s adding a new bathroom or transforming the attic into another bedroom. Maybe the basement needs to be finished. Whatever the case, if there are things that need to be done around the house to make it a better fit for your family or to fix real problems, those sorts of projects can be a good place to start.

Value

But what if there aren’t any need-based projects to do? If you’re trying to build your home equity, remodeling projects that increase the value of your home can be a good place to start. Kitchen and bathroom remodels are commonly considered to be the types of projects that add the most value to a home, though midrange upgrades tend to pay off more than luxury upgrades. Considering which project will yield the greatest return is a good way to choose one when your goal is to increase the value of your home.

Budget

Maybe you have a whole list of projects that you’d like done, but you don’t have the money to cover all of them. In that case, your budget could have something to say about what project you start things off with. Figure out what specifically you want to accomplish for each project and get quotes for the work. Once you know how much each one is going to cost, it will be easier to let your budget guide your decision. Choose the project that is the highest priority but that fits within the budget you’ve set to start with.

Having multiple remodeling projects you want to have done around your home can be exciting, especially when you think about your vision for the final result. It can also make it a little tricky to know where to start though. Consider how much a project needs to be done, the value it adds to your home, and your budget. That should make the decision a little easier to make.
