When to Consider a Whole-Home Remodel

A whole-home remodel is a big project, one that you’ll want to consider carefully. There are many things to keep in mind when considering a whole-home remodel, such as the areas of your home you want to renovate, the amount of time the project will take, and, of course, how much it’s going to cost. 

In some cases, a whole-home remodel may not be necessary. For example, if you want to make your kitchen more functional, or you have a bathroom that really needs some updates, it might be more cost-effective to simply renovate each of these areas. Sometimes, simple cosmetic upgrades—such as new cabinet hardware and new paint—can significantly improve a space. However, in other instances, a full, whole-home remodel is the only way to achieve the transformations you want.

You may want to consider a whole-home remodel if: 

  • You are getting ready to sell your house, and it needs significant updates
  • You have recently purchased a fixer-upper or a home that needs extensive renovations
  • There are several rooms or areas of your home that need remodeling
  • Your home has multiple safety hazards or health concerns 
  • You want to increase the overall energy efficiency of your home 

In many cases, a whole-home remodel makes more financial sense than renovating different areas of your home individually. If you are planning on taking out a loan to cover the cost of the project, you can save considerable amounts in interest by taking out one loan, rather than multiple loans over the course of several months or years. 

Additionally, while whole-home remodels cost more overall than single-room remodels, you can actually save money by renovating your entire home at once. For example, if you are planning on installing new plumbing fixtures, such as a kitchen sink or bathtub, you can save money on labor costs by having all plumbing installations completed at one time, rather than hiring a plumber for one project, then again later for another. 

Benefits of Whole-Home Remodels

While it may seem like a large expense and hassle to remodel your entire home at once, there are actually numerous benefits to whole-home remodeling versus renovating different rooms one at a time over several months or years. 

Some of the benefits of whole-home remodeling include: 

  • Long-Term Cost Savings: A whole-home remodel can end up saving you considerable amounts of money in the long run. It costs less to install multiple elements, such as flooring or plumbing, at one time. You can also save money on materials, as it is more cost-effective to buy materials in bulk and have them delivered all at once.
  • Less Time Away from Home: Some renovations require homeowners to leave the house until the project has been completed. With a whole-home remodel, you will likely only need to leave your home for one or two short periods, rather than numerous periods over time. This can save you significant time, hassle, and stress.
  • Easier Future Planning: If you plan on staying in your home for a long time—or forever—a whole-home remodel can help you save time and money in the future. When you renovate your entire space, you can plan for future health and safety concerns, meaning you won’t have to remodel again to accommodate lifestyle changes or advanced age.
  • Increased Home Value: While a single renovated room can help boost the value of your home, nothing increases your property value like a whole-home remodel. Whether you are getting ready to put your house on the market, or you would simply like to protect your investment, a whole-home remodel may be the way to go.
  • Reduced Red Tape: Depending on the type of renovating you are doing, you may need to obtain various permits and deal with local zoning laws. Handling multiple renovations at once can save you time and hassle by dealing with these issues at one time, rather than having to go through the process multiple times with each new project.
  • Improved Energy-Efficiency: Remodeling, including upgrading old appliances to newer models, can significantly improve your home’s energy efficiency. Why not improve the efficiency of your entire home, all at once? With a more energy-efficient home, you’ll see continued, long-term savings on your monthly utility bills.
