Your home is a major investment and whether you’ve thought of this or not, there may come a time when you may want to sell your home. Why not make your investment work for you in the long run? You can do this by renovating specific areas but be advised, there are renovations that make your home look pretty and then there are renovations that add value to your home while beautifying it. Consider these three renovations ideas for your next remodeling project.
Kitchen upgrades are typically the first area of the home people renovate because it is known to sell a home quickly. To increase value, invest in energy-efficient appliances that will last a long time like a high-quality stove or dishwasher. Install stone countertops to get the greatest amount of value. For flooring, choose a large tile like porcelain tile because it’s beautiful as well as durable.
Bathroom upgrades are always a good idea since this area needs to withstand the pressures of moisture and other wear and tear. A new sink with mosaic backsplash and granite countertops is always a winner for buyers. Additionally, splurging on larger frameless (water-efficient) showers with his and her showerheads and body sprays is a luxurious addition that will make you feel like you’re in a spa.
Your home’s exterior is what attracts people to your home. You can add value by re-siding it. Replacing siding can help you recoup over 60% of your investment if you decide to sell your home. Great options include vinyl, fiber-cement, and stone. Before choosing a siding, consider its durability, maintenance requirements, water-resistance, and energy-efficiency.
