If you’re ready to start the new year by making some changes to your home, perhaps it’s time to sit down and decide which areas you may want to concentrate on the most. Since there are many areas of your home that could be renovated in ways that would increase your home’s value, take your time when looking at the various possibilities. As for which areas you may want to consider more so than others, here are four that should be given serious consideration along the way.
Over the past decade, bathroom renovations have skyrocketed in popularity. As it has become easier to do these renovations in only one or two days by fitting customized coverings over existing bathtubs and walls, the price of these renovations has dropped dramatically. In addition, if you are an older homeowner and want to continue living in your home, you may want to renovate your bathroom with such things as step-in showers and tubs.
Rather than continue to live with the traditional asphalt shingle roof currently on your home, you may want to make a change by having metal roofing installed. Long-lasting at 50-70 years, metal roofs are very easy to have installed, help regulate the temperature inside your home, and immediately increase its value.
Always a very popular spot in the home for renovations, the kitchen offers almost unlimited opportunities for you to go in any design direction you choose. Along with being the place where your family’s meals are prepared, kitchens today are also looked at as gathering spots where families can share experiences from their day with one another. If you are planning to sell your home at some point, a kitchen renovation will go a long way in ensuring your home will sell quickly and at a higher price.
Rather than continue to let your basement be a dark, musty area that is used only to store things you don’t use often if at all, it may benefit you to consider renovating the space. By doing so, you can turn your basement into almost anything you choose, from a home office or workout area to a family room with a TV and plenty of comfortable furniture.
No matter which area of your home you choose to renovate, you can be sure it will add value to your property, provide enjoyment to your family, and give you peace of mind.
