I WOULD UP GRADE MY KITCHEN SO MY FAMILY CAN GO BACK TO EATING TO AS A FAMILY. MY KITCHEN IS SMALL AND CLUTTERED .MY STOVE IS 18 YEARS OLD LIKE THE REFIGERATOR AND WHEN I TURN ON THE DISH WASHER IT'S SO LOUD YOU NEED TO GO OUTSIDE OR UP STAIRS.PLEASE HELP ME BRING US TOGETHER AGAIN.THANK YOU HEART BROKEN. MOM
I'd convince myself that I needed a new home bar....right in the corner of my living room...it would look nice and I could be the bar maid and the paying customer too, it would be much fun like I owned a real bar or something!!
Yeah, you'd all be welcome and some of the drinks would be some experimental cocktails of allsorts of alcohol...although I've been at the sauce already...can't see straight...gotta close one eye to see one of everything at the moment!!!!! lol!
Kitchen is definitely a better investment, but a top of the line master bathroom is a close second. If everything in the kitchen works and functions the way you want it to, and you plan on staying in your home for a long time, go for the jetted tub!
I need new windows. Some of the seals are broken, which is not good here in Continental Climate Central, and I want some that currently don't open to be able to open so the house gets better cross-breezes. My mom tells me that will probably cost 20 grand by itself.
Give me 100 grand and I'd toss in better insulation, hardwood floors on the main floor, built-in bookcases, new siding, and a bigger deck in the back.
Most definitely my kitchen. There are so many new ideas for kitchens today than there were 15 years ago when we built the house. I'd love a full working kitchen..no table in my kitchen, just lots of cabinets and ovens.
I would go for either siding, Kitchen remodel, Bathroom remodel, and work on keeping a room sorta flexible. If someone wanted a studio or something in a certain room, don't customize it too much where you would block out their needs.
Experience tell me that a quality paint job But with properly chosen colors (hire an interior designer OR a Feng Shui consultant) could make some remodeling not needed. Of course - I am somewhat biased, being a professional painting contractor. The rest I'd spend on a kitchen or a master bath.
+1 for solar power system proposed by Rochelle Frank. In amazon you can get 246-Watt starter kits for $1,300 I'm sure you can get much lower in some stores. With your budget at least you can get 3000 Watts, enough to power up major equipments.
Well considering the budget is only $20,000 I think there is plenty we can do if we shop wisely. I would definitely upgrade the kitchen, especially the cabinet doors and counter tops as well as cost effective flooring and maybe some sky lighting that would reduce my energy bills. I believe if space permits you could get a s new or even a slightly dented or scratched jacuzzi or maybe even one of those that are considered a knock off as they may not be deemed good enough for the high end market. That along with new faucet and a new paint job especially if you don't mind being creative with your paint colors then you could but reject paint from the home depot and with a little creativity make your own colors. Amazing what $20k can do right?
Well, my house was almost completely renovated when I moved in. The only thing I didn't replace were the kitchen cabinets, so I'd probably do those. I'm not sure how much cabinets run these days, and I'm sure it depends on wood, how many, etc. If I had enough money left after the cabinets, I'd consider a new roof.
I'd looove to redo my kitchen or even more my ensuite bathroom, but I'd probably end up spending it on redoing windows - double glazing some and at least improving the seals around others - adding wall insulation and adding some solar panels to the roof.
Where I'm from, $20,000 wouldn't go very far, but my choices would include whatever combination of the following I could get for the $$: new windows new carpeting remodel of both bathrooms kitchen countertops kitchen cupboards remodel family room in lower level repaint much of the interior new deck and landscaping in back expand the garage
I'm so spoiled. I love my home and everything is exactly the way I want it. I wouldn't change a thing. I would, however, like to give the money to my annoying neighbors across the road. Maybe they can build themselves a nice tall fence.
The house I'm in right now? New siding. That would take most of it...I have a huge house. But if it wasn't that it would be new windows, or a remodeled kitchen...maybe some awesome landscaping... there are little things you can do that make everything look better too. New paint, trim and window treatments make a world of difference.
I love this question and where do I begin the top of my list would be to redo both bathrooms in my home with a luxury look and a whirlpool tub. I am not sure how far 20,000 would go but anything is better then what I have now. I will all this to my bucket list
