Have you walked around your house lately and thought about some updating you want to do? Updating rooms in your home is a great way to add value to it. Whether you’re looking for a complete redesign or to update paint, it will help increase the value for when you decide to sell. Let’s break down some renovations that will end up being a great return on your investment (RIO).
This continues to be one of the renovations that gives you the highest return on your investment. The renovations you should do will depend on the current status of your kitchen. Most times simply repainting your cabinets and walls, installing new flooring and replacing your hardware is all you need to give your kitchen a whole new look. However, if the layout of your kitchen is wrong, and your home is in need of a major makeover, you might want to consider a complete rebuild.
Similar to the kitchen, the bathroom remains one of the best rooms to renovate and get the ROI. If you haven’t done any remodeling or renovations to your bathroom in years, you may want to consider updating it in the future, especially if you are thinking about selling. Again, sometimes a simple paint job and updating your faucets may be all it takes. However, if your fixtures are antiquated and stained, or you have damaged surfaces along with many areas you want fixed in the bathroom, a complete remodel may be necessary.
How the outside of your home looks matters! Is it inviting and attractive? Does your landscaping look nice or is it overflowing? A great idea is to get another person’s perspective on it. Ask a friend to come over and tell you their opinion on the exterior of your house. Things you can do to increase your curb appeal are to freshen up the paint of your front door, trim any trees that need it and clean up your landscaping, and add some color by planting annual flowers.
And remember, when it comes to curb appeal it just isn’t how the front of your house looks. Check out all sides of your house. If your backyard needs some work and you have been looking to add a patio and outdoor living space, now may be the time to consider it!
When it comes to increasing the value of your home, it is important to remember not to go overboard. Keep renovations within budget and know what type of return on investments you will get.
