10 Remodeling Options to Increase the Value of Your Home

When it comes to deciding which remodeling projects to do on your home, knowing which ones add value can be a deciding factor. Here is a quick list of 10 of the best renovations for any home:

  • Painting is one of the cheapest, easiest and most impactful ways to update your home’s interior. Repainting an entire room with a new color, or simply adding a colored accent wall will quickly make an old room feel brand new.
  • Replacing old windows is another easy renovation that can add value to your home. New windows are more energy efficient and provide more light and security.
  • Getting a new front door installed can make a huge impact on the curb appeal of your home. A modern, unique front door can create a memorable first impression for prospective buyers and guests.
  • Speaking of curb appeal, exterior renovations are a great way to attract buyers and make your home stand out. This could include landscaping, exterior painting, or replacing fencing.
  • Open floorplans are very popular and highly sought after by today’s homebuyers. Knocking down a wall or two can really make a home feel larger while providing the coveted open-concept layout.
  • Attic conversions are becoming increasingly popular. Though the renovations may be expensive initially, the value of a finished attic bedroom can outweigh the costs.
  • Home office additions can increase the value of a home by providing homebuyers with a place for work or study that is isolated from the rest of the house.
  • Quite obviously, kitchen renovations are extremely valuable. An updated and open kitchen space is one of the top selling points for many homebuyers.
  • Another selling point that interests most homebuyers is a renovated master bathroom. A remodeled master bathroom with updated amenities can add a lot of value to a home.
  • Incorporating a new patio cover or sunroom is a great way to improve a home’s value and appeal. Being able to enjoy outdoor space is always an appreciated bonus a prospective buyers eyes. Remodeling your home not only improves its style and functionality for your family to enjoy, but also increases its value for when you’re ready to sell.

    Adding Curb Appeal

    Check out the face lift we recently gave this home. The client wanted to add something to the exterior of her home to make it stand out among all the other brick houses in her neighborhood. After talking with the client to get a clear grasp on her vision, we agreed that adding decorative shutters and matching awning would be the best option. Our team got to work creating 3-D renderings and concept drawings, allowing the client see just how the finished design would look. The drawings alone proved the completed project would make a huge impact on the visual interest of the home. When the project was complete, the home looked just as the client envisioned, and now makes a bold statement among all of the similar brick homes on the street! Read more
