Remodeling your home can be a significant investment, both financially and emotionally. Because of this, it’s essential to evaluate your decisions, not just in terms of how it will benefit you by improving the resale value of your home, but also how it will bring you joy.
When the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI) recently published their Remodeling Impact Report they added a new factor called “The Joy Score.” In addition to showing cost and probable ROI, projects were ranked (on a scale of 1 to 10—with 10 being high) as to their “Joy Score.” Here are a few of the results.
- Complete Kitchen Renovation | Joy Score: 9.8
- New Master Suite | Joy Score: 9.7
- Bathroom Renovation | Joy Score: 9.3
- Basement Conversion | Joy Score: 9.4
As you walk through your home, imagine the joy you would receive from rooms that function and flow the way you envision. Opening up your kitchen could not only create a more functional space, but might also transform the atmosphere. A master bedroom remodel might allow you to walk into a space that feels peaceful and restful. Adding a new bathroom might minimize squabbles over bathroom time and help your mornings run smoother.
Remember, remodeling your home does not merely improve your home’s value, it helps improve the non-tangible value you receive from your home!
