Spring is finally upon us, and the best remodeling pros’ calendars are already starting to fill up.

In other words, if you’ve been dreaming about a new bathroom or updated kitchen all winter long, now’s the time to do it.

Here are a few rooms to consider re-doing this spring, with the help of some pros or do some of it on your own!:

Garage Remodel: Average cost: $10,772

Whether you want to turn your garage into an extra room or just add some streamlined storage, the garage is an existing space waiting for you to take advantage. So why wait?

Kitchen Remodel: Average cost: $20,556

The kitchen gets more action than any other room, so a few upgrades can go a long way in terms of your daily life. Whether you are remodeling for a sale or for your own convenience.

Basement Remodel: Average cost: $18,810

Having another room in the house undoubtedly adds value to a house, which means someone will pay more for your home when it comes time to put it on the market. Plus, basements are also often some of the biggest spaces in the house, which means your dream of having that pool table for parties can be a reality.

Bathroom Remodel: Average cost: $9,348

Who doesn’t want to sit in a spankin’ new soaking tub at the end of a long day? The benefits to your daily life are one thing, but bathroom remodels provide some of the highest resale returns because buyers are also all about these types of little luxuries.

Attic Remodel: Average cost: $49,438

As pricey as an attic remodel can be, it can expand your living space and create great guest quarters, master suites and play areas. Man cave, anyone?

Multiple Room Remodels: Average cost: $36,001

Why you should consider it: You can save a substantial amount of time and money by tackling multiple rooms at the same time. Since workers can cover a few projects at once, getting it all done in one big swoop increases the efficiency of the project and reduces your contractor costs
