The 2017 Remodeling Impact Report is issued every year. It tracks the many ways homeowners’ lives are changed after having home improvements done. This year’s results are eye-opening: After completing a remodeling project, 75% of owners have a greater desire to be in their home, 65% say they have increased enjoyment in their home, and 77% feel a major sense of accomplishment when thinking of their completed project.
These statistics certainly mirror what we see ourselves as General Contractors in Framingham, MA. Prior to having their homes worked on, many local homeowners experience feelings of frustration or anger. This is especially true when the issue is inside the home -a kitchen that’s too small or isn’t configured properly for your family’s needs; a bathroom that’s out of date; or just not enough storage space anywhere are common complaints.
The Remodeling Impact Report tracks what it calls a Joy Score, which measures how satisfied and happy homeowners are with their remodels. It’s nice to see some interior remodels that don’t get a lot of attention – things like redoing the master bedroom suite – be credited for the amount of joy they bring to the homeowner’s life.
In the survey, many suburban homeowners report that they find the idea of taking on a home renovation job on their own overwhelming. This is where having a Framingham MA General Contractor to work with makes life easier. When you have a skilled, experienced professional remodeling team to work with, you can transform the parts of your home that make you sad into beautiful, comfortable spaces you truly enjoy.
This is important when you consider how much of your life you spend in your home. Kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms are all influential spaces in our lives. You can add to the happiness and reduce the stress in your life by spending time in pleasant environments well. Treat yourself well. Invest in interior remodels. The rewards will benefit you now and later.
