Full Interior Home Renovation: What Are the Benefits?November 18, 2022
In 2021, new homebuyers in the US spent an average of $30,000 on renovations immediately after purchasing their home. Whether you’re buying a new fixer-upper or considering remodeling your current home, this article will give you the lay of the land in terms of what to expect and the benefits. McFall Builders specializes in full interior home renovation, so this article will focus on the benefits of remodeling multiple areas at once as opposed to a single room.
What Are the Benefits of a Full Interior Home Renovation?
There are several benefits to remodeling your home’s entire interior at once. We will focus on the benefits and what you can expect during the renovation. The benefits of a full home interior renovation include the following.
- Cost savings
Have you visited a home that looked like it was “pieced together” like a quilt? One room’s Mediterranean-themed, the next is modern farmhouse, and another is still stuck in the 80s. This usually happens when homeowners renovate each room individually over time. There are some practical reasons for this, that we’ll get into later. However, renovating rooms one at a time brings the potential for a mismatched home interior.
Many times, different contractors are used for each project, and characteristics like wall texture, flooring, paint color, trim, and doors don’t match throughout the home. Not only is this unpleasant, but it also makes selling your home more difficult. Completing a full interior home renovation at once eliminates these discontinuities and makes your home’s interior look beautiful and seamless.
At first glance, when remodeling a home room-by-room, it would seem that you’re budgeting your home’s renovations more efficiently by spreading the costs out over time. Although you’re able to break the costs into manageable chunks by remodeling one area at a time, you’re likely costing yourself more money in the long run.
Have you noticed with most products and services that it’s more cost-effective to purchase a higher quantity at one time? The same principle applies to interior home renovation. For example, 1 bathroom remodel may cost you $40,000 but it’s only $60,000 to remodel 2 bathrooms. It’s best to plan for a full home interior renovation by waiting until you have all of the necessary funds or financing to hire a contractor for a single project. This also saves you from incurring additional costs that are involved with beginning and completing projects each time. Namely, administrative work, permitting, renderings, consumables, and more.
Last but certainly not least, full interior home renovations are more convenient than remodeling a single room or area. For example, when you only remodel 1 room, you are faced with the trouble of keeping the rest of the home free of construction dust/debris, noise, and disruption. Most homeowners continue living in the home during smaller remodels. Not many things are worse than living in an active construction area.
Additionally, when smaller projects are spread out over 3-5 years, homeowners are forced to live in a construction zone in perpetuity. Instead of spreading your interior renovation out over 5 years, you can get the entire process complete in as few as 2-6 months, depending on the scope and size of your project.
Lastly, full interior home renovations can be completed when purchasing a home (prior to moving in) so that the home is vacant during the project. This minimizes disruption and allows you to move into the home of your dreams on day one!
