Time To Move or To Remodel?
We all dream of finding the perfect home. We have it in our minds and we pursue that vision. However, even if we find it, a few years later we feel like we can do better. Or like we just want something different.
The truth is that there is no such thing as a perfect home. We are different people each day and our needs also change with time. If your family grows, so should your home, but what happens when your children leave? Downsizing then doesn’t feel all that unreasonable.
But aside from drastic changes, we still want to feel excited, even thrilled about living in our home. So from time to time we crave change. And when it comes to homes, this means either moving or remodeling. And while as Chicago movers we can help you with the former, you may still want to consider the latter. Let’s see why!
The Case For Remodeling
Most people see remodeling as why too hard of a job. So much so that even moving seems more desirable. After all you won’t have to deal with builders, cleaners and so on. You simply look for a new place, buy it (or rent it) and move there, right?
Well, remodeling is not as tough as you may initially think. It can be as simple as a tile change, or a new coat of paint. Maybe just a furniture swap will do the trick as well. If you think creatively, you can actually make remodeling a fun experience. You can have your bathroom turned into a full on Spa suite, or your bedroom into an exotic vacation home. Of course, these are only a couple of ideas and there are tons out there.
The Case For Moving
While you can definitely spice things up with remodeling and renovation, sometimes it is indeed the tougher job. Sure, you can have a new bathroom, but you can have that with a new place as well. After all, everything will be new when you move, right? That is inherent to moving altogether.
Moving also gives you the opportunity of picking the right area as well. You can only go so far with remodeling, before you realize that it is the neighborhood you don’t like and you want to change. So moving can give you that option without a problem.
Perhaps we should mention one last thing – if money isn’t an issue, perhaps you’d want to move AND remodel at the same time. Not your old house that is, but the new place. Before you move, you can turn it into the home of your dreams, can you not? That way you will not only have the adventure of moving to think about, but also the fact that you will be living in a home that is just the way you like it and just WHERE you like it.
To us that sounds awesome. Don’t forget that we from H2H Movers will always be there to help you with your move!
