Everyone has certain reasons to remodel their home. Yours could be different than that of your neighbors or your friends/family. You may be getting married and willing to get that extra space in your current house. It could be that you want to redesign your home and number of other reasons.
Let’s see some reasons.
1. It Makes Your Home Comfortable
A comfortable house is everyone’s priority and not to be able to do that because you are short of funds, hurt. So now you have got the money and it’s your time to add to the overall ambiance of your house; add to the comfort and enjoyment of your house.
It could be because you might consider selling the house later. Or that some factors were overlooked at the time of construction and you want to make them right.
2. It Helps You Fix Safety Issues
Where there are people living, there will always be problems such as electrical problems, roof leaks, crack in the foundation etc. It could be due to how you live in the house, if you are reckless or lifestyle is such you’d probably damage the house yourself. If you are careful and so as not to cause damage to any part of the house, you can save the renovation cost altogether.
But it is not that simple. After all, you live in a house because you just want to be comfortable in your place and not make it a showroom of some form where you can’t move freely or touch things without prior consent. Hence, the need for fixtures will always be there.
3. It Increases Value of Your Home
People add to the value of their houses if they are planning to sell it in some years (as previously mentioned). It could be that they are hosting some guests from foreign or that their family is expanding and they want to make it look perfect for the occasions to follow and so on so forth.
4. It Increases Efficacy of Your Home
Installing a new heat pump, new windows or increased insulation are all aspects that improve the overall efficiency of the house. In turn, it adds to the increases living standards. Efficiently built houses sell quickly in the market, should it comes to that or you can rent it and charge premium for it.

In your senior years, if you are planning to stay indoors, tune your house accordingly. It could be upgrading by installing age-in-place features such as replacing bathtubs with easy to step-in showers or toilets that offer ease if you have problems in being mobile around the house.
6. It Promotes a Green Environment
Green energy is quickly becoming a concern for everyone; be it homeowner or businesses. As this is your contribution in making Earth a safer place for our species to thrive.

Usually, basements become a major store unit for us. If you are planning to renovate, might take a look at your basement and perhaps shape it into a room for a living space, or a media room or heck add an extra window/closet to create an extra bedroom.

People spend their entire lives living in the same house and wish to leave it as a legacy for their future generations to come. Hence, they avoid the stress of looking for that perfect house or a dream house. Why go to such hassles, when you can renovate your bathrooms and kitchen to a modern day setting?
