3 Reasons to Downsize Your Home With Denver Remodeling


October 12, 2016

Downsizing is not just for empty nesters! Many Americans are choosing to downsize their home to cut costs and reduce their ecological footprint. You might be surprised with what you can do in a smaller space. Here are some reasons to consider downsizing and a Denver home remodeling project to utilize all areas.
  1. Financial Benefits: Moving to a smaller home will save you money in a variety of ways. First, you will not have to heat and cool as big of a space. Homeowners often have rooms they do not use yet will still get the same heating and cooling treatment that is not necessary. Second, it can reduce your mortgage and property taxes. Imagine if you moved into a space that saved you $500 per month. This will allow you to use that money in other areas, such as other bills, savings or perhaps more traveling. Plus you will spend less time cleaning a smaller space and more time enjoying life.

  2. Reduce Your Ecological Footprint: Larger homes consume more energy, hence, a negative impact on our environment. When you reduce the space, there are many different ways you will help the environment. Some of the ways you will help include using less electricity, water and building materials.
  3. Efficiently Maximize Space: When downsizing to a smaller space, you have to be smart about the space so you can utilize every corner. One of the great things you can do is find furniture that serves multiple purposes for example a couch bed that has storage. Next, consider vertical and rack storage options for easy access in closets and cabinets. Depending on your budget, you could invest in a smaller home at a lower cost and remodel it! This will allow you to have the space meet your needs but in a size that reduces costs. You can work with a local company to see what work needs to be done—whether you need a full renovation or if it would help to work on a few rooms. Plus, this gives you the freedom to have the new home match your personality and style. Learn more ways to maximize space in Freshome’s 11 Clever Ways to Maximize Space in Every Room of Your Home.
