If you want to increase the value of your home, there are three room renovations you need to invest on that will definitely boost the number up. These are the top three rooms that you should renovate:
You do not have to go crazy when updating your bathrooms. Sometimes, all you need is a fresh coat of paint and nice architectural detail will often do the trick. Installing a new mirror or adding light fixtures can turn a bathroom from dull to fabulous!
If you have a basement, you should finish it. Whether you’re planning to create a man-cave out of that space or an extra bedroom for your growing family, just finishing it will add more square footage to your home- and value. However, before starting any renovations for your basement, don’t forget to have permits in place and that you work with a reputable contractor who’s familiar with basement developments.
Unless your whole house is falling apart, the room where you should spend most of your budget is the kitchen. Real estate agents have told us over and again that when they hold open houses, the first room that home buyers check out is the kitchen.
Now, renovating the kitchen is not just about making it pretty. You have to put extra care into the layout. While beautiful tiles, hardware, cabinets and nifty appliances will make the kitchen look extra nice, the “flow” needs to be right as well. What do we mean by that? We call it the triangle—the space where your cooking area, sink and dishwasher meet to create a flow that makes moving around the kitchen to do various tasks effortless.
