Andrea Lauren Elegant Interiors, in Tampa, wants you to make a BIG resolution this year that will spark joy in your soul and bring a positive return to your bank account with a kitchen or bathroom remodel.
It seems like every year has its thing, doesn’t it? Remember in 2019 when we all started the year going Marie Kondo crazy and picking up every throw pillow and knickknack to see if it “sparked joy”? And then the exuberance we placed at the start of 2020… a year when Cinco de Mayo fell on Taco Tuesday? I think we can collectively agree that 2021 is the year we all just want to exhale and put the past behind us. We’ve learned a lot this year and now January 2021 is our time to start fresh with a new focus and intention.
Let’s start by going into your master bathroom. Hug your toilet and see if it sparks joy, just for old time’s sake. On second thought, please don’t do that.
As you think about your master bathroom, though, think of the first thing you would love to change about it. Now take a moment and think about another thing in that master bathroom that would make you happy if it were upgraded. Chances are that this wasn’t a very hard exercise to do.
If your master bathroom is already at peak perfection, try this exercise in your kitchen space. Does it need a better flow? More counterspace to make Christmas cookies with your kids or host your friends for game night? New fixtures and appliance upgrades to make you feel like Top Chef in your own domain?
It’s not uncommon for people to dream big in their home space, but then only take small actions like freshening up paint or changing a faucet. While the mini fixes may provide happiness in the moment, they don’t remove the “I still wish…” from the space. Well, 2021 is not the year to act small. Make this year’s resolution to start with the fresh and renewed energy that a total kitchen or master bathroom makeover would bring to your home.
There are several important reasons why 2021 is a particularly good year for kitchen remodeling or master bathroom remodeling in Tampa:
- Peace of mind. Regardless of whether 2020 treated you well or was a painful year, we all experienced new and prolonged stressors in our life. A complete remodel is the literal cleaning away of the past and a signal to your brain that a new beginning is here.
- Wear and tear. The kitchen and master bathroom are some of the most heavily utilized areas of your home. The quality of these spaces may deteriorate more quickly than other rooms. It makes sense to invest your upgrades into the spaces you use most, for the maximum personal benefit.
- Lifestyle changes. You have most likely changed as a person since your master bathroom or kitchen were installed. What you value in life may have changed. Your habits and hobbies may have changed. (Any one identify a sourdough bread or small gardening talent this year?) Your current space may not adequately reflect who you are now and, thus, feels incongruous with your life.
- Wise investment. The Tampa real estate market is hot right now. Studies have repeatedly proven that investments in the kitchen and master bathroom spaces produce big returns when it is time to sell.
If the thought of putting time and energy into master bathroom or kitchen remodeling is causing you stress, we encourage you to give us a call at Andrea Lauren Elegant Interiors, for a design experience in Tampa that is like no other.
