Do you really want this in your remodel?

Remodeling: so worth it in the end, but the process might drive you batty! To help keep you sane, MSN Real Estate offered some valuable tips to those about to go through this process. Here are some things to remember:
- Vessel sinks look chic in shelter magazines, but they are expensive and require a lot of thought with installation. Is there another stylish sink option that might look just as good in your new bathroom?
- Windows are a subject near and dear to our hearts! When remodeling, it’s important to choose the highest quality of windows for performance and beauty. But MSN Real Estate reminds us that you also need to think about the placement of your windows. You need to think about everything from “Is the couch going to block the windows?” to “Will I have enough privacy from the neighbors?”.
- Marble countertops and dark hardwood floors both look beautiful, but they are high maintenance. Marble stains and while dark flooring might hide dirt, beware if you have a pet (or blond hair!). Are you prepared to be vigilant about maintenance and cleaning?
- For the kitchen sink, think hard about a farmhouse sink. As gorgeous as they are, they can be deep. Are you going to be able to wash dishes comfortably without breaking them?
