4 Home Improvements That Will Increase the Value of Your Home

toolbox-home-improvementsWhether you are looking to sell your home, or simply want to leave it in better condition than when you got it, home renovations are a great way to add value to your home! Read on for Stoneworks Granite & Quartz’s recommendation on four home updates you can do that will help increase your property value.

1.Kitchen Refresh

The kitchen is arguably one of the most important rooms in your home. As such, updating your kitchen is a great way to add value to your home. Modern cabinets, new appliances, and new granite countertops are sure to increase your home’s appeal to buyers. The addition of a backsplash is another common design choice that adds texture and dimension to your kitchen. If you want to take it to the next level, you could look at expanding the kitchen, and potentially adding an island. You can’t go wrong with updating your kitchen. Kitchen renovations often offer a large return on investment when it comes time to sell you home.

2. Bathroom Revamp or Addition

Updating the bathroom’s in your home is another great way to increase your home’s overall value. Similar to the kitchen, it’s an important room in a home, which means it usually has a high ROI. Look at updating the shower or tub, the countertop, toilet and perhaps the floor. Storage is important, so get creative and try to utilize any dead space in the room. If you only have one bathroom in your home, you’ll see a huge jump in value if you are able to add in a second bathroom – even a half bath can make a huge difference to future buyers.

3. Update Fixtures

If you are looking to increase the value of your home, but aren’t ready to spend money on a full reno, consider updating the fixtures around your house. A few of the fixtures to look at updating are:

While small, these changes add up quickly and can make a real difference in a home.

4. Curb Appeal

Your house may be beautiful on the inside, but you’re going to have a hard time getting future buyers inside if the outside of your home isn’t well maintained. First impressions matter – so taking some time to enhance your home’s exterior can help you maximize its value. Look at fixing up old or cracked siding, doing paint touch ups, and/or repainting brick walls. Also, never underestimate the power of a freshly painted front door!
