Whenever you ask some of the most fundamental questions concerning your home’s aspect, especially when it’s a couple decades old, you might ask yourself: Is it worth it to restore my house?
It always depends: according to data exposed in a Home Advisor article, the average price for a home restoration in the U.S, averaged a whooping $47,000 of which $25,000 of the total budget are eaten by the kitchen restoration alone, while another $10,000 are employed for bathroom general restoration
Now the real question is: Can you really afford to pay almost half a hundred grand for a “touch up” to the structure of your home? Is it really worth it?
To begin with, restoring a house not only restores value to the property itself, but also makes it more pleasant to live in: The smell of new is something comforting and in the vast majority of cases usually compensates for the great initial effort required to finance such a repair expense;
A taste for one’s own home can also contribute to an improvement in personal self-esteem, since in general, living in decrepit and run-down homes often contributes (not only to the possible contraction of diseases from exposure to fungi or pests such as rats).
However, results are also a matter of personal “resistance” to tolerate several cramps during the restoration process which includes: living in an environment full of dust, solid waste (and also constant sneezing), unfamiliar people (especially if one is in the presence of children) living with you, Inability to use certain areas of the house temporarily (which, for example, make it impossible to hold private meetings.
In the end after all that initial suffering, you can show off to your family and friends your new “luxuries”: the new tapestry in the living room, the polished and varnished wood of the dining room table or the staircase railing, and the smell of spring jasmine in your most intimate place, your bathroom.
