Regardless of the method, remodeling projects are not inexpensive, so making the best impact for the cost is important. Here are the top 5 rooms to remodel in 2019.

1. Kitchen – Always a great return on investment. From functional spaces to bona find living areas, add extra seating, lighting and entertaining spaces such as a bar or counter.

2. Backyard Kitchen/Family Room – The backyard is an extension of the interior. Section off areas for an outdoor kitchen and family room. Add a fireplace or even a TV.

3. Master Bedroom – Always a place to retreat and refresh. Master bedrooms are getting makeovers with calm soothing paint colors, large picture windows and balconies or patios.

Let's Ask A Professional!

We asked a local Realtor at Keller Williams Signature Partners in Wichita, KS her thoughts. 

Q: When showing your client(s) a home(s) what room(s) do they care about the most? 

A: With my clients it’s typically the kitchen and bathroom(s) that they like to look at first.

Q: If your client(s) don’t like a kitchen, how likely are they to put an offer on the home?

A: I find that if a client doesn’t like the kitchen, there is a 5-10% chance of putting an offer on the home.

Q: Since bathroom(s) are the second room(s) looked at.  If a client of yours likes the kitchen, but hates the bathroom what tends to happen?

A: If the kitchen is nice enough and they are willing to live or remodel the bathroom(s), then they’ll likely put an offer in.  However, it generally is lower than asking considering the amount that will be needed to remodel the bathroom(s).
