Your home is where you live and feel most comfortable, but if you’re like most people, it’s also your largest investment. So it makes sense to upgrade your home, because it makes your home a better place to live but also increases your home’s resale value if you do ever intend to sell your home. It’s important to know which projects are worthwhile when remodeling your home. If you aren’t sure of which projects are worth the bang for your buck, continue reading our blog below to learn which projects you should get started on.
If you’ve ever flicked on the TV to any home improvement channel, you’ve probably realized how important kitchens are to any home sale. They’re one of the most used rooms in any home; you’ll likely be using the room multiple times per day, every day. Potential homebuyers may not be inclined to tackle a kitchen remodeling project themselves, so they’ll be happy to find an updated kitchen in a home they’re thinking of buying.
An outdoor remodeling project may not be the first thing that pops into your mind when you think of a value-adding home improvement project, but it’s one of the best. In terms of cost, decks recoup about 80% of their initial costs, making them a top remodeling project. Building a deck will give you a space in your yard to entertain, grill, and relax with family and friends. It’s a project that can be completed fairly easily as well, so you can begin enjoying your new deck quickly.
Along with your kitchen, your bathroom is one of the most used spaces in your entire home. Updating your master bathroom or adding an additional bathroom to your home is a great way to impress potential homebuyers but also make your home more convenient to live in. Even small updates like changing the lighting fixtures and paint in a bathroom can upgrade a bathroom in a meaningful way, but a total bathroom remodel will hugely increase your home’s value.
One of the most popular ways to add space to your home has always been finishing your basement. It can add additional living space to your home that you can use for a guest bedroom, game room, man cave, or more. It’s a more affordable project than most people think to finish your basement, so many homeowners shy away, but it’s the perfect way to add versatile space to your home without disrupting the rest of your home.
Last but not least, and a more minor project than the other projects that we mentioned, installing efficient windows and doors in your home will significantly improve your home’s value. Energy-efficiency is important for homeowners and potential homeowners alike, you’ll enjoy lower energy bills with more improved efficiency, and it’ll also be a selling point for potential buyers. New windows will also and some style and flair for your home, and today, even great looking windows provide excellent energy efficiency.
