Should I remodel my kitchen or bathroom?

Ideally, a lot of us would like to remodel the kitchen and bathroom at the same time.  Unfortunately, that’s not always possible.  Here are a few things to help you decide which to complete first:

Kitchen remodels tend to have a better return on investment if you plan your project well and spend wisely you’ll get the most for your money while likely adding the optimal resale value to your home.

Consider what suites your lifestyle best.  If you don’t plan to sell your home in the foreseeable future a kitchen renovation might be a better option if your family spends a lot of time there.  However, if you enjoy long soaks in the tub and the kitchen is only used to unpack your takeout, then a bathroom renovation might be the way to go.

You might also want to consider what guests see when they come to your house.  Bathroom doors can be closed, but the kitchen is often one of the first things people see.  A kitchen that requires a serious overhaul could turn off potential buyers.

If you plan on selling your home in the future, it’s a good idea to really consider which renovation will add the most value to your home.
