Home remodeling is a great way to enhance your home’s beauty and comfort. But if added value is what you’re after, then it’s important to use your remodeling dollars wisely. While a whole-house renovation could send your property value through the roof, strategic remodeling throughout the home is essential when working with a limited remodeling budget. Here are five remodeling projects that are sure to boost your home’s value.
1. Bay Windows
Modern bay windows are an excellent addition to any living space for two reasons. First, high-quality windows can help to enhance home comfort by minimizing drafts and improving your home’s overall energy efficiency. Second, bay windows help to increase depth and natural light, which can help to make rooms feel bigger.
2. Foyer and Entry
Your home’s appearance from the front – or ‘curb appeal’ – makes a huge impression on guests, as well as potential home buyers. If you’re looking for a quick and easy boost, up the ambiance in your foyer by updating entry flooring, staircases, railings, trim and other accents that will make the area pop.
Kitchens are the most commonly remodeled area of the home, and they provide a great return on investment if you’re upgrading your current builders-grade appliances, cabinets and surfaces. Countertops, major appliances, cabinetry, islands, and flooring can all contribute to more comfortable cooking area as well as a healthy boost in a home’s value.
Closely following kitchens in remodeling frequency is the bathroom. Successful bathroom remodeling must emphasize both function and form—his and hers sinks, additional storage, heated flooring, high-end frameless shower doors and unique bath tiles and tile patterns are a great way to see an increased return on investment off your bathroom.
5. Outdoor Living Space
Finally, you can expect a significant and guaranteed return on investment by adding a dedicated outdoor living space. A generous hardscape patio or composite deck with a built-in grilling area that is low maintenance and well-cared for will make your backyard more appealing and will make your home feel more spacious.
