Your kitchen and bathroom have the potential to be an excellent investment in your home. In Toronto, home and kitchen upgrades make up the vast majority of all home improvements, and see the highest return on investment. In addition, your kitchen and bathroom are the most used portions of your home, meaning that an upgrade not only raises the value of your home, but also improves its functionality and comfort. For these reasons, choosing fixtures and appliances for either of these two interiors can be a daunting task.
With all the options available on the market, as well as renovation features, it’s difficult to choose the best option for your interior without prior knowledge of the industry. Which kitchen and bath furnishings offer the best value for price? Which environmentally friendly options are likely to save you on energy and water in the long run? In order to facilitate your shopping experience, we’ve compiled a list of a few tips and tricks to guide you through your bathroom and kitchen upgrade experience.
Shop for Function
With any item and fixture, you should avoid shopping based on pure visual appeal. Before you fall in love with a particular faucet or sink, think about how this option will work in your home’s interior. Your family, your available space and your budget limitations should affect how you look for fixtures in the first place. Choose based on your interior’s needs, and the needs of the users before considering the visual appeal of your choice. While visual appeal plays a huge role, it should never be your primary factor in making any purchases.
Budget Your Interior
Before you begin shopping, remember to sit down and establish a budget for your interior. If you’ve already invested in some renovations or plan to, take in the cost of these renovations and include it in your budget. Your final sum should be representative of how much you are willing to invest in your bathroom and kitchen fixtures.
Look at Trends
Modern kitchen and bath design is very trend based, meaning that a lot of research should go into deciding what the look and style of your interior will be. Spend time browsing through resources such as Pinterest.com or Houzz.com to accumulate enough information about how you want your design to look like and go from there to select appliances and fixtures.
Don’t be Afraid of Creative Solutions
You may want to merely opt for traditional fixtures and home improvements, but with so many new items on the market it’s always a good idea to explore creative solutions. Take a look through Amati Canada’s catalogue for unique products such as space saving, hanging vanities or modern, water saving faucets.
Review the Market
With the Toronto housing market in shambles, home improvement is one of the best methods to upgrade your home’s value as well as your comfort. However, if you are planning on upgrading with the intention of raising your home’s sale value, you should be careful. In precarious markets your upgrades can mean little to a potential buyer, and may not significantly alter the cost of your home. Consult with a professional before upgrading so that you maximize your profits and avoid costly mistakes.
