Great Rental Remodeling TipsVolkan Agbas
36% of the United States’ nearly 123 million households are rentals. And most rental units are owned by local or regional individuals, which means if you have a rental business, you likely need to fix and remodel quickly to keep your few renters happy and keep your units appealing to future tenants. And because of this, we wanted to share some rental remodeling tips for kitchens and bathrooms.
Your rental kitchen is one of the places you really want to wow renters and potential tenants. Leaky faucets are a common and easily remedied problem in rental properties. Replacing the faucet in the kitchen or bathroom is a great way to update the space without spending a lot of money.
A more costly and therefore more impressive renovation for your rental is to modernize your cabinets. Kitchen trends fluctuate, and while soffits used to be a trendy kitchen feature, those trends are swinging more towards storage and entertainment. Replacing cabinets to create a cleaner, more storage-friendly experience.
If fully replacing the cabinets is out of the budget, putting a fresh coat of paint or stripping and refinishing the cabinet doors is an inexpensive way to update the look of your entire kitchen.
Another quick way to update the kitchen for your current or future renters is to replace the countertops. There are a ton of great materials to choose from. Granite is one of the most popular, but there are many other options to choose from.
The details of your rental bathroom can often be selling points. Refreshing the toilets, tubs, faucets, and other accessories can go a long way in creating an updated look in the space. It’s one step further than a repaint, but not as much work as a full remodel. Faucets, toilet paper holders, and towel racks are easy to replace and make a great impression on future tenants.
Lighting and storage are big concerns in any bathroom space, and the addition of a lighted mirror and new medicine cabinet can really change a space as well. The lighted mirrors are a very popular trend that also creates a better experience in the space. The lighting coming from a mirror rather than from above is helpful for that space when it comes to makeup, grooming, and so much more. Adding a lighted mirror to your rental can create a warmer, more inviting ambiance with a touch of modernity.
Before you hit the reset button and start remodeling, a first step should be a deep clean and repainting of the rental. Once you do that, you can take stock of any damage and make a list of the most outdated features and the items that renters in your area are looking for – whether that is an open concept space, more or larger bathrooms, or a full kitchen update.
