If you’re planning to resell your home in the future, many renovations can increase the value of your home. We’re sharing some indoor projects that will do just that.
There are many things you could do to your kitchen to improve the aesthetics and increase the value of your home. The first thing we recommend doing is upgrading the lighting fixtures if they’re outdated. Your kitchen serves as a multi-purpose space; it’s where you do the cooking, hosting, chit-chatting, and much more. For this reason, it’s essential to have light fixtures that can accommodate any mood. The last thing you want to do is hang out around the kitchen bar with your friends and have the overbearing fluorescent lights shining in your face. Another aesthetic enhancement we recommend for your kitchen is updating the backsplash. Make a statement or improve your kitchen’s aesthetics with an upgraded backsplash.
Besides your kitchen, bathroom remodels are a trendy remodel to increase your home’s value. Try renovating an old vanity, updating light and plumbing fixtures, or even redoing the tiling on your bathroom floor. Updating your bathroom to look more modern and aesthetically pleasing will prove a wise investment when it comes time to resell.
For your living room, we suggest adding a dramatic fireplace as the space's focal point. If you’re planning to resell in the future, a good upgrade for your living room is the addition of crown molding. Crown molding adds elegance to your space that buyers love. Also, upgrading your light fixtures to fit a modern aesthetic will add value to this space. Finally, we recommend switching out any carpet in your living room for hardwood floors or wood laminates. These types of flooring are not only durable but add a tasteful element to your space as well.
Minor bedroom updates can make your home stand out from the rest when it comes to reselling. Once again, lighting fixtures go a long way in this space. For example, adding a chandelier to your bedroom would add a level of sought-after sophistication. In addition to new lighting fixtures, scaling your window treatments to your room size will nicely tie everything together. Lastly, try experimenting with timeless wallpaper for an accent wall or all around the space.
Finally, we suggest a few smaller projects. Repainting the interior of your home is a great place to start. Adding a fresh layer of paint to your interiors will essentially work as a face-lift for your home, and it will cover over some superficial damage caused by natural wear and tear. This is also a great time to update any bonus rooms you may have; we’re talking guest rooms, playrooms, offices. These rooms often get overlooked because of major renovations elsewhere, but a few touches here and there will have these rooms looking as good as new. Finally, smart home technology such as security cameras, smart locks, water leak detectors, and even smart thermostats will increase the value of your home. Smart technology will increase the value of your home because of the added convenience and security.
