Should I Renovate or Remodel My Sonoma County Home?

Are looking to update your home? Whether you know what project you want to take on or need to consult a professional for advice, it is important to know the difference between remodeling and renovating. While remodels and renovations both have stunning results, there are major differences between the two.

Knowing the difference between remodeling and renovation will help you achieve the results you have been dreaming of.  Let’s take a look at a few of the differences below:

What is a Remodel?

Remodeling a home involves changing the structure or function of existing areas of your house. A remodel will change or transform particular rooms.

Some popular remodeling projects include:

  • Master Suite Additions
  • Bathroom Additions
  • Major Kitchen Remodels 

In all of these instances and more, it is likely that the floor plan of your home will change. Doors and walls might need to be moved around, plumbing & electrical will be rerouted, and other major modifications will take place. 

Remodeling a home makes sense if your layout does not seem functional. Your family might be growing or you find yourself frustrated with the layout of your kitchen. No matter what reason you find, consulting an experienced design-build firm is the way to go when planning your new layout.

What is a Renovation?

Renovations are home improvement projects that restore houses to a good state of repair. This could mean you upgrade old appliances, update building materials, or repair different aspects of your home. A renovation will not alter the structure or form of your house. 

Some popular renovation projects include:

  • Updating Kitchen Countertops
  • Replacing Kitchen Cabinets
  • Upgrading Your Laundry Room

While renovation changes might be more subtle than a remodel, they can add tremendous value to your home. They can also make you fall in love with a house all over again! A lot of older homes are perfectly functional, they just need to be updated with modern touches.
