You can make your home more comfortable to live in by carrying out a home renovation. But most of the time, a home renovation will also increase the value of your property. However, this depends on the type of renovation you carry out. There are certain projects that are guaranteed to have a better effect on your property value than others.
If you are planning to sell your home at a later date and therefore raise the property value, a great renovation project you can do is updating your kitchen. This is one of the most important rooms in your house and you will be able to both improve the function and aesthetics of your home by having it redone.
Capital Building renovations will be able to help you with rethinking the layout to increase storage space and functionality, upgrade cabinets and countertops, add new light fittings, improve task lighting and replace old appliances with energy efficient models. When a potential buyer comes to your home, they will be impressed with a new kitchen layout and this will also mean that they don’t need to make a lot of changes to the area. People will pay more for an improved kitchen with all hardware and appliances so that they don’t need to renovate it on their own which will take considerable effort, time and money.
The bathroom is another area of the house that is frequently used and needs some improvement. You can upgrade any fixtures that are broken or outdated. Maybe the tiles have faded or the design is outdated and doesn’t match the rest of the house. Also, you can improve the ventilation of the bathroom by adding an exhaust fan and enlarging the window. The latter option will also bring in more light.
If it is an upstairs bathroom, you can even consider a skylight which can create a beautiful view and also ensure that your bathroom is always dry. The living room is a dynamic area that can be zoned as per your requirement. If you feel the living room is too small, you can always extend it. You can also have an outdoor deck to extend the living area. This can be enclosed by a glass roof that still retains the connection to the outside.
If you feel a bedroom is too small, it can be extended and you can also see if you can make it so that it has an attached bathroom. Adding more living space to your home will always improve the value as you will have more usable square footage. Sometimes, you can add an office room or study room on the ground floor that can also double as a guest bedroom. All of this provides more options to prospective buyers.
Another important factor you need to consider is the energy efficiency of your home. You can make energy efficient upgrades such as adding insulation to the home, installing a new HVAC system, updating electrical appliances and upgrading doors and windows. This will bring down your energy bills considerably and make it more attractive to buyers that are looking for environmentally friendly homes.
