As a homeowner, you want a residence that’s safe and comfortable for you and your family. You know that goes beyond having everything in good working order. The importance of aesthetic beauty should not be overlooked.
Today, it’s easier than ever to tackle large-scale home projects. Many of these tasks can be completed in a long afternoon or weekend. Still, it’s wise to keep in mind and practice home improvements that will always add value to your investment.
In this article, you’ll learn the projects that are worthy of your time and others that benefit from the skills and experience of a qualified contractor.
1) Kitchen and Bathroom Improvements
According to HGTV, kitchen and bathroom upgrades return up to 100 percent of the project cost. Remodeling experts say improvements in these areas of the home show that a homeowner cares about the property. These rooms are also areas where your guests and family members spend most of their time.
One of the easiest and most noticeable improvements is with lighting. People are naturally attracted to a bright and clean look. In addition, potential homebuyers are impressed by stainless steel, quartz countertops, and more.
2) Basic Maintenance
It may sound easy, but the best way to add value to a home is through simple maintenance. This attention to detail shows an interest in all aspects of the property, not just the main areas of a home.
Securing loose cabinet knobs, repairing or replacing broken and chipped floor tiles, and similar projects demonstrate that you’re a homeowner who is invested in the long-term life and prosperity of the residence.
3) Landscaping and Gardens
While landscaping itself may not add direct value to a property, REALTORs agree that eye-catching additions and overall aesthetic beauty can make a difference for home buyers when considering multiple homes. Even if a potential buyer doesn’t have a “green thumb,” REALTORs say they’ll appreciate the charm and artistic flair landscaping adds to the residence.
Furthermore, the concept of “curb appeal” asserts that if people driving and walking by a home aren’t impressed by the exterior, they won’t make time to view the interior. That means non-structural improvements have the power to entice and appeal to potential buyers.
4) Professional Upgrades
In an age of do-it-yourself (DIY) projects, some jobs require a classically-trained touch. When the scope of a project becomes too much or you simply don’t want to invest the energy, contacting a qualified contractor is a good idea.
Another option to consider is having a home custom built. This way, you’ll have full control over the features and upgrades that best fit into your personality and lifestyle.
