Increase Your Home’s Value by Upgrading Your Kitchen and Bath

Happy to have Bob Okenquist from Eagle Home Mortgage as a new contributor to The Bucks County Women’s Journal!

Is it time for a home remodel, but you don’t want to pay with credit cards? Consider the popular option of refinancing your mortgage while rates are low. This allows you to adjust the term of your loan, possibly lowering interest rates, and in turn lowering your monthly payment…making it easier to pay for the renovations of your dreams.

Contact Bob Okenquist at Eagle Home Mortgage today to find out how easy the process is.

Looking for inspiration? Check out the top 6 trends in home renovations:

  1. Heated Floors – These are especially popular for the bathroom, but they can also be added to the entry way. This makes sense during cold months. Nothing says luxury like radiant floor heating.
  2. Two-Tone Kitchen Cabinets – Go bold! Add color or texture to your kitchen by pairing two different cabinet styles together for a stunning and updated look. Be sure to upgrade to 42-inch models, instead of 36-inch standard sizes. Splurge on fancy hardware for drawers and cabinets for added drama.  Don’t forget to add crown molding to the top for a finished look.
  1. Ditch the Formal Dining Room – Give that square footage more purpose and expand the kitchen, where everyone congregates. For greater resale value, build in a kitchen nook that will be enjoyed more than a closed-off room that’s reserved for Thanksgiving dinners.
  1. Expanded Bathrooms – If room allows, knock down some walls and increase your bathroom space. Make your bathroom feel more like a spa by adding a chaise lounge, large dresser, antique vanity, or other pieces that you choose.
