Do you dream of a complete kitchen remodel? Could your master bathroom use an overhaul? What about adding built-in cabinetry to your TV room? Here, well cover which projects are worth tackling if you want to add value to your home.
In The Kitchen
A kitchen remodel is by far the best investment you could make in a home for resale value. Granite, quartz or solid surface countertops are extremely desirable in the kitchen. Other must-haves include a kitchen island, modern appliances, plenty of quality cabinetry and countertop space, and a design with an easy traffic flow. Storage solutions, a large kitchen sink, and a beautiful backsplash are icing on the cake!
In the Bathroom
Almost as important as the kitchen, a bathroom remodel can also add value to a home, when done properly. Whether it’s a powder room or the master bath, there should be good lighting and adequate ventilation. Bathroom vanities play an important role, so choose wisely. Not only will your cabinetry provide much-needed storage solutions in the bathroom, but it will also anchor the room from a design standpoint. A soaking tub and/or large walk-in shower are also important features to consider when planning a bathroom remodel.
In The TV Room
Like the kitchen, the TV room (also known as a living room) is a place for gathering and entertaining. Put wasted space to work by installing custom cabinetry in the TV room. Not only will it add storage solutions to cut down on the clutter, but it will also make an attractive focal point in the room. When designing your TV room, take advantage of a large and empty wall space by thinking both horizontally and vertically. Then, add visual interest with a mixture of closed cabinetry and open shelving.
Other Home Remodeling Projects To Consider
- If you live in an older home, consider replacing drafty, single-pane windows with energy efficient units. Windows with an Energy Star rating can help to considerably cut the cost of utility bills, and as an added bonus, some even tilt in for easy cleaning.
- Make your laundry room more attractive and functional by adding a new, front-loading washer and dryer, and lovely laundry room cabinetry to stow detergent, stain removers, fabric softeners, and even your ironing board, out of sight.
- When it comes to flooring, hardwood floors are immensely popular. Options include both solid and engineered wood. Or get the look without the big price tag by opting for laminate, vinyl, or tile flooring that is made to look like the real deal, but for a fraction of the cost.
While these are just a few updates that can add value to your home, hopefully they will inspire you to tackle that project you’ve been dreaming of. When you look at your house as a whole, any improvements should be worthwhile, whether you are planning to sell in the near future or not.
