Which should I remodel first: kitchen or bathroom

You may only have the money to remodel your kitchen or your bathroom. If this sounds like you, which one should you remodel first: your kitchen or bathroom? There are a few key points to keep in mind.

The Time Factor

It is important to take a look at how long these remodels are going to take. Kitchens are usually many times larger than a bathroom, so they are going to take much longer to remodel than the bathroom. If you are looking for a quick remodel, then going with a bathroom remodel might be the better choice. If you are willing to wait for a while for the remodel to be completed, then you might think about going with the kitchen instead. Think about how long you are willing to live with contractors in your house.

The Money Factor

You are going to want to consider the money as well. How big is your budget? In general, because a kitchen is so much larger than your bathroom, remodeling the kitchen is going to cost more money. If your budget is tight, then you might not be able to get everything out of your kitchen remodel that you desire. Your kitchen is also going to provide a larger return on your investment. Painting the kitchen, upgrading to new appliances, refinishing a lot of surfaces, and replacing old hardware can significantly increase the value of your home.

The Impact Factor

You should also think about the impact the remodel is going to have on people who enter your home, particularly for those who are thinking about selling their home in the future. Because your guests are going to be spending more time in your kitchen than your bathroom, a kitchen remodel is going to do a better job helping you keep a high profile. Most potential home buyers are going to be interested in the appearance of your kitchen if they are thinking about buying your property. Where are you going to spend the most time?

The Utility Factor

Where are you going to spend the most time? Most people are going to spend far more time in their kitchen than their bathroom. If you decide to remodel your kitchen, you are going to spend far more time here than you are in the bathroom. You will get to enjoy the fruits of your labor more if you remodel your kitchen.
