These suggestions for decorating, remodeling and adding storage will help your home stand out on the market.
When purchasing a home, at first, you aren’t thinking about one day reselling it. However, things change, families grow, and there may come a time when you may need to relocate. When relocation time comes, resale value will be extremely important. Here are our professional designer/builders’ opinions on increasing the value of your home.
Make the Room Feel Bigger Than Its Square Footage
Selecting and placing furniture that fits the scale of the room can go a long way in making the space feel larger than it is. While the actual square footage of a house will, of course, directly affect the price, perception is a powerful thing.
Add Custom Closets and Pantries
Nothing sells better than lots of storage options! A large, functional walk-in closet and/or pantry will add value to any home.
Focus on the Kitchen
If you are going to spend money on your home, you’ll get no better bang for your buck than in the kitchen. Even minor upgrades there, such as updating light fixtures and hardware, will add value to your home.
A Fresh Coat of Paint Can Work Wonders
Painting is the most cost-effective way to freshen up a space. Freshly painted rooms feel updated, clean and crisp, without leaving a major dent in your wallet.
Bathroom upgrades are second only to kitchen updates in providing a great return on investment. Since bathrooms are usually the smallest spaces in the home, a little bit can go a long way.
