Why Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations Matter

If you are thinking of selling your home or just want to spruce it up, you might be wondering which home improvement projects are worth investing in. According to experts, kitchen and bathroom renovations are among the most profitable ones, as they can boost your home's value, appeal, and functionality.

The kitchen and the bathroom are two of the most important and frequently used rooms in any home. They are also the ones that show the most wear and tear over time, as well as the changes in style and technology. Updating these spaces can make a big difference in how your home looks and feels, as well as how it performs on the market.

According to HomeLight, a kitchen remodel can increase your home's value by an average of 23%, while a bathroom remodel can increase it by an average of 20%. These numbers vary depending on the size, scope, and quality of the project, but they indicate that buyers are willing to pay more for homes that have modern and functional kitchens and bathrooms.

Some of the benefits of kitchen and bathroom renovations include:

  • Improving the aesthetics and comfort of your home
  • Enhancing the efficiency and functionality of your appliances and fixtures
  • Reducing the maintenance and repair costs in the long run
  • Increasing the energy efficiency and sustainability of your home
  • Adding more storage and counter space
  • Creating a better flow and layout for your daily activities
  • Attracting more buyers and increasing your home's resale value

How to Plan Your Kitchen and Bathroom Renovations

Before you start tearing down walls and cabinets, you need to have a clear plan for your kitchen and bathroom renovations. This will help you avoid costly mistakes, delays, and disappointments. Here are some steps to follow:

  • Set a realistic budget and stick to it. Consider how much you can afford to spend, how much you expect to recoup, and how long you plan to stay in your home.
  • Do your research and get inspired. Look at different styles, materials, colors, and trends that suit your taste and needs. Browse online magazines, blogs, social media, or visit showrooms and open houses.
  • Hire a professional contractor or designer. Unless you have the skills and experience to do it yourself, it is better to leave the work to the experts. They can help you with the design, permits, materials, installation, and quality control.
  • Choose quality over quantity. Don't skimp on the essentials, such as plumbing, electrical, ventilation, insulation, flooring, cabinets, countertops, faucets, sinks, showers, tubs, toilets, lighting, etc. These are the elements that will last longer and add more value to your home.
  • Be flexible and prepared for surprises. Renovations can be stressful and unpredictable. You might encounter unexpected issues, such as water damage, mold, faulty wiring, or structural problems. Be ready to adjust your plan and budget accordingly.

Brooklyn Tile and Design Day of Charity

On May 13,2023, Brooklyn Tile and Design had the ultimate honor of giving back to a great cause. BTD sponsored and hosted an informational booth to help raise funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society along with 25 other vendors and sponsors. The Block Party and Market Fundraiser was held on a beautiful tree lined street in Garden City, New York. There were over 150 smiling faces in attendance. Children as well as adults enjoyed the beautiful sunny day shopping, playing, eating, and petting adoptable puppies.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is a global leader against blood cancer. 100% of all proceeds from the ticket proceeds benefited LLS. Money raised went directly to cancer patient services, patient advocacy and most importantly, cancer research.

Brooklyn Tile and Design understands the importance of giving back and community volunteerism.

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
– Gandhi

Thank you to all who donated and attended.

Get Cozy with Fireplace Built-ins

With cooler days fast approaching- images of drinking hot cocoa, reading a great novel, and sitting by a warm rolling fire come to mind as the perfect winter day. Fireplaces are usually the focal point of living rooms or family rooms. It’s where are we hang our holiday stocking, decorate the mantle and gather for the perfect group picture. Fireplaces signify unity, family, and comfort. In many cases, this area can be commonly overlooked.
