Home Renovations That Bring Added Value To Your Home
I am often asked how different home improvement can change the value of your home. The answer to this question will differ from contractor to contractor. There are a number of renovations that increase the equity of your home however not all of them are as cost effective as others. Home improvements are not all created equally when it comes to the return of investment. Below you will find my top choices for homeowners to minimize the expense while increasing the value in your home.
Brighten Up Your Space: There are a number of ways that a home can be lightened up. Instead of being faced with life in a dull dark home bring light colors to the walls and bring in more natural light to the space. Neutral colors of lighter shades of paint should be implemented throughout the home along with an increase in lighting with dimmers. Colors can be brought to a room in the form of accessories. The pop of color, along with the lighter paint color can really brighten up the spaces within the home.
Real Wood Flooring: If you have some money to spend on your home invest in wood flooring. When buyers come into a home that has quality flooring that has been well cared for they instantly swoon. Wood flooring adds value, warmth and so much character to a space. Don’t skimp on engineered or laminate flooring that looks like wood flooring they affect is never the same. Go for the real deal. Find mixed and match pieces of wood flooring through liquidation sales, salvage yards and such to get the best deal possible. You can stain the floor and dress it up however you want to make it your space.
Enhance the Bath: Little changes in the bathroom can make a big difference. Don’t go overboard as that is when the bathroom renovation expenses soar. Instead opt for a few new fixtures, some lighting changes, fresh paint and new shower caulk and grout. A trendy new mirror and some nice architectural changes really add a lot to the style of the bathroom. These minimal updates can really impact the perception of the bathroom space without costing homeowners an arm and a leg.
When doing renovations to your home it is important that the work is done by a professional specializing in that area of home improvement. The quality of the work that is done is just as important if not more important than any other aspect of the remodel.
