Home Renovations That Increase Your Home’s Value
So you want to spruce up the ol’ homestead. Maybe you are planning on selling or maybe you are doing it for yourselves. Is digging up the backyard to install a pool a good idea? Or, maybe a kitchen renovation is the way to go? Chances are, you’ve asked yourself these types of questions since you began thinking about the reno process. Well, we’re here to help alleviate some of the concern.
- Absolutely upgrade your kitchen! Most experts agree that upgrading your kitchen is the surest way to increase your home’s value. Its the heart of the home, the place where families spend most of their time. But, where to start? A couple of ideas right off the bat is to install new stainless-steel appliances and counter-tops in stone or granite. These are fairly easy changes that will improve the esthetic of the space. Other details might include installing a shiny kitchen faucet or door/cabinet pulls.
- The Bathroom A nasty, old cracked or “just not working quite right” toilet is a turn-off…the same goes for a vanity, which should be practical and eye-catching. Proper lighting is also a great “value adder”.
- Go Green Over the last several years, there’s been a growing demand for green housing. Making your home energy efficient is a plus. Anything that helps keep the heat in during the colder months or the heat out during the hotter months is a good idea. Think about adding ceiling fans in all rooms. Its relatively inexpensive and a quick change. Consider replacing those old incandescent light bulbs with LED’s or CFL’s. Not only are these new options more energy efficient, they also last for years, sometimes decades.
