Consider your stay. Are you planning to live in your home for the next 5, 10 or 30 years? The shorter your plan to stay in the home means you should try to not inject your own personal style into the remodel – this may make it harder to sell/connect with a buyer. If you do plan to live in the home for a longer period of time after remodel – you should frame your remodel selections to fit your styles and tastes, and age related needs of the persons living in the home.
For example a bathroom remodel would take into consideration the needs for an aging person such as a walk in shower, seating and a comfort-height toilet. If the person is in a wheelchair, a roll-in shower is a perfect solution for convenient and safe bathing.
