Home Remodeling for the Holidays: The Gift that Keeps on Giving!

Lansing Home Remodel - K Fedewa Builders

The holidays can be a stressful time of year for many reasons, one of which is ensuring that you choose the right gift for those closest to you. What if you could give your loved one a gift that keeps on giving the entire year and beyond?


Gifting a home remodel to your spouse, family member, or close friend would make them happy throughout the year. Whether you choose a kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, addition, finished basement, or other type of remodel, your gift can also increase the value of your loved one’s home.

After you have chosen to give the gift of a home remodel to your loved one, you need to decide on which are to renovate. This time of year can easily help you decide the answer to that question though. With the holiday season upon us, our homes will be flooded with guests at different times. Our kitchens and bathrooms will have a revolving door of guests coming in and out, seeing plenty of use.


As the holidays progress, it can become apparent that your home doesn’t have enough space or is outdated. That’s when you’ll know the answer to which room is the remodel gift you will give your loved one. Understandably, this remodel won’t be complete before this holiday season. However, because this gift doesn’t have a timeline, your loved one will be able to enjoy your gift remodel for birthdays, anniversaries, family gatherings, upcoming Thanksgivings, Christmases, Hanukkahs, and every day!


Imagine the look on your spouse’s face when they have a kitchen that accommodate the entire family comfortably? Picture standing around a beautiful kitchen island talking with your family and friends while children run in and out with toys and pets. Because the kitchen is one of the busiest rooms in a home, often serving as the gathering place for everyone, a kitchen remodel tends to be the remodel that is the top gift choice. Besides being the heart of the home, remodeling a kitchen helps increase a home’s value. From countertops and cabinets to luxurious finishes and appliances, kitchen remodels make remarkable gifts.

Next up, update that tight and outdated guest bathroom that your loved one’s family and friends will be using at your next get-together. Give your loved one a guest bathroom they are proud to send their guests to use. Or, better yet, give your spouse an incredible master bathroom. Have they talked about a gorgeous walk-in shower, large spa-like bathtub, or double sinks for convenience? Make their eyes light-up with opulent finishes, massive amounts of storage, and a place they look forward to relaxing in at the end of the day.


Besides remodeling a kitchen or bathroom as a gift this holiday season, don’t forget about finishing a basement to add much-need usable space to a home. If you have a basement, you have a blank slate to add additional living space and value to your home. Give the kids a space to play and be kids, let your teenagers have a hang out space, give aging parents a place to move in with you, create a new storage space, or just a create a fun space like a movie theater. Your imagination is the limit when it comes to top ideas for finishing your basement.

Additions might be the largest option for gifting a home remodel this holiday season, but they can add so much more than just usable space to a home. Additions offer up an entirely empty shell to create a new living room, additional bedrooms, a magnificent new master suite, the kitchen of your spouse’s dreams, or even an in-law suite.


As we all get older, gifting an in-law suite for aging parents is an incredible gift to those who raised you or your spouse. Give them a safe place to live while helping your family stay incredibly close with each other. On the other hand, consider gifting a remodel to your adult children as an early draw from their inheritance. This is a perfect option for those adult children who are first time buyers and could use a little equity by adding value to their first purchase.
