There are many reasons to remodel a home – but to make the decision to actually move forward (both financially and emotionally) is a big step, especially for the mother in the house. We asked moms in varying stages of motherhood what home remodel they would like, and here are some of the top answers:
If this is a first child for the family, there may be a need for a room addition and/or reconfiguration so that the crib is located near the parent's room. Because babies create a LOT of laundry, this may be a perfect time to move the laundry room from the garage to the main floor where the bedrooms are located, for added convenience.
Toddlers – Tweens
Storage can be a challenge at this age. Adding “cubbies” where toys, art supplies, games and dolls can be hidden away neatly is one easy solution. You may also want to consider using that rarely used spare room or formal dining area for a “kids room." For your tweens, you can have a computer nook created for homework or a cozy reading area with built-in bookshelves.

As kids grow up, so do their appetites! There is no better reason for a kitchen remodel. If you want your house to be THE gathering place so your kids are close by but still with their friends, consider this remodel – it only adds value!
So maybe you want to keep your “baby’s room" available for him/her to come home to on break from college. But if you're ready for some extra space of your own, why not renovate the closet and create an internal space for a hobby or activity like crafts, writing, or sewing?
