Older Home Remodeling & Upgrading in Pittsburgh

How do I modernize my old kitchen? Is remodeling a dated bathroom worth the time and expense?

These are two of the most frequent questions we hear from Pittsburgh-area homeowners interested in updating their older homes. For some, it’s about a bathroom that no longer accommodates everyone’s morning schedule. For others, it’s a lack of kitchen counter space and a cramped layout.

Some want to add a home office or reconfigure the entire first floor. Whatever your reason, if your current space no longer meets your family’s needs, a remodel can be the solution.

This can include:

  • Replacing cabinets
  • Installing new countertops
  • Replacing sinks, faucets, and lighting
  • Updating flooring

Upgrading an older home can refresh and enhance existing spaces, allowing you to achieve a new look and improve functionality before committing to a larger-scale remodel.

4 Things To Know About Renovating an Older House

When remodeling or upgrading an older home, considering these factors before you dive in can ensure a successful and satisfying transformation:

  1. Preserving character: Many older homes have unique architectural features or “quirks” that make them special. Carefully preserving these elements, including original woodwork, vintage tiles, or period-specific fixtures, can maintain the home’s character while updating its functionality. Think about which features you want to keep and which you want to replace.
  2. Modernizing systems: Older home renovations typically include at least some upgrading to the electrical, plumbing, and HVAC systems. The goal should be to incorporate modern technology and energy-efficient solutions that enhance the home’s functionality without compromising its aesthetic appeal.
  3. Maximizing space: Older homes often have smaller or differently configured spaces than modern designs and layouts. Creative space planning and thoughtful design maximize the available space, making it more functional and adaptable to today’s lifestyles.
  4. Blending old & new: Successfully integrating modern amenities and design elements with existing features allows homeowners to enjoy the best of both worlds — classic charm with contemporary comfort and convenience.
