One of the best ways to add property value to your home is to complete a renovation. When you choose a project you need to make sure it will make your space more functional in addition to adding value. Below are four popular projects that will help boost your property’s potential.
The type of flooring in your home is important to the overflow flow and continuity of the space. Therefore, the majority of the home should feature one type of flooring throughout the area. Uniformity is much more pleasing to the eye, and homes with the same flooring feel larger. (Scroll down to the bottom of this post to view a renovation project I completed. It features hand scraped wood flooring throughout the entire home rather than the various types of flooring it had before renovation.)
The kitchen might be the most important room in any home, and renovating your kitchen is one of the best investments you can make in your property. When renovating a kitchen you should focus on the most important features: countertops, cabinets, and appliances. These will add the most value to your home. There are also some minor details you shouldn’t ignore. For example, don’t overlook the sink backsplash. Here are some backsplash ideas to get you started.
A bathroom renovation is another popular project that adds value to your home. If you decide to renovate both your kitchen and bathroom, then the countertops you install should feature the same material. This adds uniformity to the area. However, the bathroom floor is one space where it makes sense to feature a different type of flooring. Take a look at this article for some of the latest bathroom floor trends.
Adding a large mirror to the bathroom is one of the best ways to make the space feel larger. It’s also important to pay attention to minor details in the bathroom as well. For example, the mirror in the below after picture features a metal tile trim which adds elegance to the space. Light fixtures are another minor detail that you should consider updating to increase value.
The outside of your home is just as important as the inside. When selling your home it’s especially important that your front door looks up to date. Depending on the situation this might just mean a new coat of paint, or it might mean an entirely new door. Also, don’t forget your home’s back door and the garage door if you have one.
