Home renovations are tricky because you have to figure out if the cost equals the pleasure you will receive from the remodeling plus the money you will get back out if you decide to sell. There are a few sure-fire winners in the home makeover game.
Master Bath and Powder Room
Buyers find these two rooms important. The powder room is a very public room, so homeowners should put their best foot forward. This little room is a great space to do something interesting, either with the lighting, architectural elements or artwork. Because it’s just a nook, and the door is usually closed, it doesn’t have to be an artistic extension of any other room in the house. On the other hand, if you’re considering master bathroom remodeling Leavenworth, you will want to design a space of comfort and beauty. It should be a calm, pleasing extension of your bedroom with great lighting and storage.
Increasing your home’s exterior appeal is well worth the effort both for yourself and for potential buyers in the future. Even if the façade of your house is not super charming, you can disguise it with layered trees, shrubs and flowers. If you don’t feel like landscaping will do the trick alone, replacing exterior doors and windows can work wonders for creating an attractive exterior.
Everyone loves an updated kitchen, and new appliances and increased counter space just might make you fall in love with cooking again. Whether you take the room back to the studs or just complete a few cosmetic changes, redoing a kitchen can make the entire house feel fresh. If the cabinets are unattractive, go for new doors and paint. If the space is a burden to use, bring out the jackhammers and start anew.
Resale value should be figured into any home renovations you undertake but so should your enjoyment factor. (Otherwise, no one would ever install pools.) Finding the balance between these ideals will lead you to the perfect set of remodeling plans.
