A few weeks ago, I shared my bathroom envy with you.
I had been invited to a friends house to see her new bathroom and when I saw it, I knew I would be going home and thinking about making changes in my master bathroom too.
Growing up in a family where real estate was discussed on a nightly basis (both my parents were Real Estate Brokers) I know the value of a home can be raised significantly by having an updated kitchen and bathroom. Because of that knowledge, every time my partner and I purchased (and eventually sold) a house, we looked at what we had to do to update the bathrooms and kitchen.
After I shared my bathroom envy with you, I just couldn’t get it off of my mind.
I started searching magazines and websites to find the perfect inspiration for my new bathroom. I found knobs, countertops, tiles and more that I thought would make my drab bathroom into a fantastic bathroom.
Before I went any further with my plans, I visited Capitol One online I could:
- Get my customized rate offer and estimated loan amount – with no impact to my credit score
- I even began the application process – it was simple and there was no application fee or closing costs
Once I knew how much I could spend on my new bathroom, I called a contractor to discuss my plans.
Funny thing happened when she arrived at the house. We never made it upstairs to the master bathroom. We began to discuss my kitchen. You remember what it looks like don’t you? This is a photo of my kitchen when we purchased the house.
Here is what it looks like now. We have made a few changes, but I know my kitchen needs more work in order to bring the highest price when we sell.
My contractor and I spent a couple of hours together planning my dream kitchen:
Here is a list of a few of the things I will be changing in my dream kitchen:
- Updated antique white cabinets
- Brushed stone wooden tile flooring
- Stainless steel appliances
- Country Kitchen sink
- New knobs and drawer pulls
I can’t wait to show you a photo of what my dream kitchen will look like. I am so excited. The contractor will begin the process in the beginning of 2017.
Since I was prepared and knew what my loan amount from Capital One was going to be, I was able to discuss the changes with my contractor with confidence. Guess what? I even have enough to change this drab bathroom!
