During this great recession, many homeowners limited their Sunnyvale bathroom remodel projects to repairs that were large enough to require a partial remodel (moisture damage issues and the like).
As such, many of us have been living with what we feel are sub-par bathrooms, but because of the economic uncertainty, we continued to live it it.
Have you ever heard of Frugal Fatigue? It is quite literally when we get tired to having to live frugally.
The good news is the US economy recently replaced every job lost in this recession. This does not state or imply that economic uncertainty is over for all of us (it is not) but for most of us our situations are stabilizing.
Is now the right time to finally modernize your bathroom?
If you’re planning to stay in your home for years to come, now is.
As the economy continues to improve, the cost of remodeling will rise (as prices do) and while this is good for remodelers it’s not so good for home owners. So maybe now IS the time to finally rid your life of that gaudy old bathroom you’ve wanted rid of for years and years.
I do however have one strong word of caution. Do this only if you have the money ready to go. If you need to refinance your home to pull out money for such projects, please don’t. That is how we collectively got into this financial mess in the first place.
On a more positive note, if you’re ready to go and you need a quality contractor for your Sunnyvale bathroom remodel….
