Every change of season presents new opportunities to significantly improve your home. Our client’s favorite time of year to renovate is fall. Here are four reasons why:
1) Hibernation Factor
It’s cold, the days are getting shorter, you long to be inside. But you’re tired of cooking warm meals in your aging kitchen. You envision snuggling with your family on a new leather sectional in front of a wide screen TV but your cramped living room isn’t big enough. You’re starting to spend more time indoors this season and realizing you don’t have enough room and your spaces are lackluster. Now is the time to create the home you love before you’re stuck indoors for another six months!
2) Ready for the Holidays
‘Tis the season for entertaining. Whether you’re hosting large family gatherings, throwing a New Year’s Eve bash or having friends over to exchange gifts, your home has to function and look its best. An experienced design/build firm will minimize disruptions and ensure your project is completed on time so you can enjoy a stress-free holiday in shiny new spaces!
3) Energy Efficiency
Heating, lighting for entertainment and early sunsets, and inefficiencies in your home design can lead to skyrocketing energy bills during long winter months (see our Home Maintenance Tips to prepare for the seasons ahead). Working with an expert architect to identify and address those issues as part of a larger home renovation project can result in significant short- and long-term cost savings.
4) Get Ahead of the Competition
Spring is the hot season for real estate transactions. Whether it’s for resale or personal enjoyment, dozens of homeowners in your area will be competing for the attention of local architecture firms to remodel when the temperatures rise. Be a step ahead of them by renovating in the fall and working with the best!
