Whether you’re looking to sell your home at some point in the near future or you just think it’s time for an update, there are many upgrades that you can do that will increase your home’s value and give it the refresh it needs without completely breaking the bank.
A bathroom remodel can be as simple as fresh paint, new fixtures, and new cabinet doors or a whole new bathroom with a 6-jet jacuzzi bathtub. If you’re someone who never uses their tub for actually taking a bath, why not take that out and install a glass shower instead? Make it your own with decorative tiles and use the extra space for shelves.
Vinyl siding is long-lasting but over time, its color fades in the baking sun and shows its age with cracks from harsh winter storms and stray foul balls. It’s not cheap but re-siding can make your home look brand new again.
Old windows not only make a house look shabby but they also increase heating and cooling costs. According to EnergyStar, replacing your single-paned windows can save you $101–$583 and 1,006–6,205 pounds of CO2 (which is equivalent to 51 to 317 gallons of gasoline) per year.
Why use your basement for just storage when you can make it part of your living space? Turn your boring old basement into a multi-media room for the whole family and add to your home’s square-footage which will make it more desirable, and more valuable, when you put your house on the market.
Refresh the old color or go for something bold and brave! Like new siding, a new exterior paint job will make your house look brand new.
Replace Carpet with Hardwood
Everyone loves hardwood floors. Carpets get worn and shabby over time, and if you’ve ever machine-cleaned them, you know how much filth they can hold. Hardwood floors are stylish, easy-to-clean, and add to your home’s value.
Create a Laundry Room
The best place for laundry that’s waiting to be washed is out of sight. Dedicated laundry rooms are becoming more popular in new construction and gone are the days when you had to shlep your laundry up and down the basement stairs. With a laundry room, you can do all your laundry and fold it too in a beautiful laundry room on the first floor. Or better yet, put one on the second floor where all the closets and dressers are!
Let’s face it, a lot of us enjoy gardening but it can be hard to get the look of a professionally landscaped yard. Look for a landscaper that’s experienced in landscape design and give your yard a whole new flow. Bring in lots of perennials that will give your yard color and beauty year after year.
