Every year, Realtor.com tracks which home improvements are the most popular, making special note of which improvements do the most to improve the value of the home and which contribute the most to homeowner satisfaction. The report echoes much of what we see on an everyday basis as Framingham building contractors: kitchen renovations top the list, followed by bathroom upgrades. Both of these choices make a lot of sense, as these rooms see a lot of use, and are subject to fashion trends that can make a room feel out of date and obsolete – if you’ve ever walked into a kitchen that hasn’t been redone since the 1980’s, you’ll understand what we’re talking about.
Other popular Framingham MA home improvements include room additions and having a porch or deck added to the home. Both of these improvements deliver more space for the family to enjoy. The trend toward outdoor living definitely drives the desire for porches and decks: these spaces are ideal for relaxing, entertaining, and cooking. Today’s high tech composite decking materials means you can have a very attractive, durable deck for the same prices as an old-fashioned wood deck – and you never have to worry about your deck warping, wearing out, or needing time consuming scrubbing, staining, and other maintenance.
It’s never too early to begin talking with your Framingham home improvement company. They can help you plan your project, determine a realistic budget and timeline, and make design suggestions to maximize the enjoyment you get from your renovation project.
