If you want to give your home a remodel, choosing renovations with a high ROI can improve resale value. While increasing property value is something to consider, being comfortable and having a more functional space is also important. Knowing where to start a home’s upgrades can be difficult but hiring a general contractor can help make it easier.
Dorion Contracting in Edmonton has three suggestions for renovations a homeowner should consider:
Bring your bathroom into present times
It can be hard for homeowners to prioritize a renovation when an area is still in usable shape. If you’re selling, bathrooms that are out of date can cause potential homebuyers to lose interest. While a complete renovation can seem overwhelming to homeowners, it doesn’t necessarily need to be done. Homeowners can improve their bathrooms by replacing high-touch areas like flooring, countertops, and fixtures. These seemingly small improvements can make a huge impression and can fit within a smaller budget. Updating those glaringly out-of-date parts of a bathroom will improve your enjoyment of the space. It will also help you sell your home faster when the time comes.
Kitchens make a huge impression
Just like bathrooms, the kitchen makes a big impression and can impact resale value. For a full remodel, homeowners should look at things like custom cabinetry or built-in organizers. You’ll improve the looks and function of the kitchen, and in doing so, help increase resale value. If you’re looking for a cosmetic renovation, doing things like updating backsplash and countertops can also go a long way. Combine new countertops and backsplash with cost-effective cabinet refacing and you’ll have an entirely new kitchen. You can also consider replacing your dated appliances with energy-efficient models. Not only will this attract future buyers, but it will help you save energy and money in the meantime.
Expand your livable space
With so much time being spent at home in the last year and a half, livable space is more important than ever. There are studies on the importance of spending time outdoors, so homeowners should look at investing in the outdoor space. Improve the existing deck space or create a new deck to enjoy time outside or to entice potential buyers. Including notable fixtures such as pergolas or lighting can really go a long way to increase resale value. Homeowners should feel encouraged to design their outdoor space to suit their needs, especially if selling isn’t on the horizon. It’s important to feel comfortable in one’s own space, so invest in a space that you want to spend time in!
