Here are 10 of the very best home improvements you can make right now, ranging from small jobs to big ones.
Remodel the Kitchen
Updating the kitchen is one of the best ways to give your home some additional value. Adding some modern appliances and touching up the cabinets to make them look more modern too is always a worthwhile investment. Add a fresh coat of paint to change up how the kitchen looks too.
Get a Garage
Homes that have a two car garage are much more appealing to homeowners. A small garage could is basically as good as no garage at all. New homes tend to have garages that have a little extra room to give people a place to work or use as storage.
Remodel the Bathroom
The bathroom is one room that really shows off how old a home is. Painting the walls, adding a jacuzzi, and having appropriate flooring in the bathroom contributes a great deal to the value of your home. A bathroom with outdated fixtures makes a home feel old and dated.
The modern homebuyer is looking to invest in a home with wood, ceramic, and other natural materials. Another good option is laminate flooring, which creates the natural look without any of the problems and hassles of natural flooring. There are products out there designed to give the look and durability of laminate, known as PVC wood flooring.
Install Quartz or Granite Countertops
Quartz and granite countertops are a solid choice in either the kitchen or the bathroom. They don’t take a lot of maintenance, they look good, and they can give your remodel some extra value. Many people consider granite to be the better choice between the two. Quartz certainly looks and feels like granite, but it has a cheaper price tag.
Improve Curb Appeal
Everyone enjoys the feeling of driving down the road to their home. Improving the landscaping of your property and adding some color makes this experience that extra bit enjoyable. Adding some flowers and shrubbery makes your home look brighter and gives it some cheer.
Increase Natural Light
Getting more natural light to the property leads to energy savings and can improve your health. Find more places to add some windows and patio doors to house to welcome more natural light. Consider getting sun tubes or sky lights as well.
Open Up Some Extra Space
A home that has an open floor plan is a home that feels bigger than it is, especially compared to closed-up houses. It’s not difficult to open up extra space either. You might need to just adjust your furniture to avoid sectioning off rooms. It can also be more difficult; including knocking walls out. One of the most obvious walls to remove is the wall between your dining room and kitchen.
A Fresh Coat of Paint
Something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can make a home look brand new and change how a space feels.
Cluttered homes feel dirty and small. Ensure that you clean up all the clutter inside and outside the home. Rearrange – or even remove – furniture to open up the house and make it less cramped.
