Last week, we spoke about some common home improvement ideas. This week, we’d like to elaborate on that topic but go in a different direction with our conversation. Making these changes help define your house as an entity that belongs to you while also helping you build some valuable equity along the way. At some point, you’ll be interested in selling your humble abode for one reason or another. Well, these projects can help motivate you to get the ball rolling!
Finishing the Basement at Last
Getting the basement finished sounds like a daunting task. Suppose you don’t have the necessary resources (e.g., time, money, expertise) to get it done. In that case, you’ll be reluctant to expend so much effort and mental energy making it happen. However, it doesn’t need to be a dramatic transformation to be worthwhile. Adding two extra rooms along with a full bathroom can yield massive dividends.
Upgrading Your Home’s Exterior Features
Now, let’s head back up to the surface. Upgrading your home’s exterior constitutes a long-overdue makeover. So if your home has been crying for a facelift, there’s no time like the present. Repair any damaged siding, and apply fresh coats of paint. Reconsider fancy facades and tidy trim details that add some character to your home. The roofline adds to the charm as well. You’ll make sure that other features such as window shutters, entry doors, roof shingles, and gutter drains are maintained if they’re not looking their best right now.
Renovating the Kitchens and Bathrooms
For many homeowners, their idea of a major home improvement project comes in the form of remodeling. In the kitchen, constantly upgrading what you have now is the name of the game. Don’t rely on the same oven, microwave, and stove that served you thirty years ago – they probably need to be replaced by now, anyway.
Meanwhile, imagine how you could change the bathroom’s appearance. The toilet could go, and be replaced with a new model that runs more quietly, wastes less water, and could even have a built-in bidet. Tiled showers with frameless doors, elegant new vanities, and better lighting are all wonderful additions as well.
Attaching a Deck to Your Home
Summer is almost in full swing. You know what that means! It’s time to spend more time outside. Take this opportunity to pump it up a notch. Attach a deck to the side of your house, and if you already have, get it refinished so that there aren’t any pesky splinters or tripping hazards.
