If you’re looking to sell your home or just want to do some upgrades do you know which projects give you the most bang for your renovation buck? Here are the home improvements with the best ROI.
1. Kitchen Remodelling
Not only does a kitchen remodel increase your home’s value it also makes it look good. You can do a complete renovation where you gut the kitchen down to the studs a totally rebuild it, or you can start a little smaller. Start with some back splashes that will highlight your counters and cabinetry. Give your room a more contemporary feel. You can use any color and material from warm natural colors to bright colorful recycled glass tiles. Give your kitchen a stunning finish.
2. Roof Replacement
Replacing your roof can not only make your house look good, it can also reinforce the structure. There are a plethora of materials and looks you can choose from to change the look of your home. Slate will give you a natural look but metal can come in designer colors and it is fire resistant and energy efficient. Talk to your roofing contractor about what would work best for your home.
3. Deck Addition
Decks not only add value they are great places to kick back and relax after work with a drink, just sit and enjoy the view.
4. Bathroom Remodelling
Kitchens and bathrooms sell houses and your bathroom is more than a utility room in your home. You can create a warm spa like feel in your bathroom, if you have the space the options are endless. From a walk in tub with jets to a rainforest shower, or install both of them if you can. You can update the sinks and faucets to something modern and striking while at the same time getting something more energy efficient.
5. Get a New Door
This is actually one of the best uses of your renovation dollars. First, a solid steel door makes potential buyers feel safe and secure, and a brightly colored door can go a long way to improving your curb appeal.
6. Waterproof Your Basement
There are a couple of reasons to do this, waterproofing your basement gets rid of any potential mold issues. Mold or damp in your basement will be a huge barrier to selling your house if that is your goal. Waterproofing will also prevent seepage and act like a vapor barrier. Finally waterproofing your basement gives you the potential to add a tremendous amount of living space to your house. Again, if you’re looking to sell then the more livable space you have the better off you are.
