We have owned our place for 8 years, have done up the main bathroom and outdoor area. We now desperately need to do up our kitchen and we figured we should update the lounge and spare room at the same time. We plan to stay at the house for 3-5 years but it’s not our forever home, so we want to have the flexibility to sell up and move when we want, without losing money. So we are conscious of making it comfortable while ensuring we don’t overcapitalise. The main purpose of the Reno is to get the kitchen updated, and put in a second toilet - or bathroom if we can.
The biggest hurdle weve come across is the kitchen, its A tricky shape/position. After a lot of back and forth, we’ve currently got the idea of moving the kitchen to the spare study room (which is a garage converted to room). we are now having reservations about this and wondering if all the extra work will be worth it. Or if we are better off leaving the kitchen in similar layout and try to put in a second bathroom off the study instead (which would certainly add more value, but might be too much to squeeze in the small house).
Current layout is 3 bedroom, office, one bathroom. House is on Sunshine Coast, Queensland.
Any advice would be appreciated please!
