6 Home Improvements That Add The Most Value | Phyxter Home Services

Simply moving a couch to the other side of the room or renewing the drapes can ultimately change how the entire room looks.

So imagine the huge transformation that can take place when you renovate your home to make it look more enjoyable and fun.

Once the remodeling notion hits you, endless options can be overwhelming.

Therefore, whenever you think about implementing some improvements, make sure they will increase the value of your home for two important reasons.

Firstly, you deserve to feel luxurious in your own home, especially after spending considerable money.

Secondly, your property should impress others should you think about selling your property in the future.

That said, read on to know six great improvements that will surely add value to your home.

1. Start with The Kitchen

The kitchen is one of the most visited rooms in any home; it is where food is cooked, dishes are done, cleaning products are stored, and probably where all the meals are eaten.

Therefore, it is a smart move to start with renovating the kitchen; however, the key is to start small.

Replacing the old rusty faucets with new shiny ones will make a notable difference.

You can also update the cabinet hardware, knobs, and handles.

For example, investing in vintage copper handles will add a classic neat touch, especially to a farmhouse kitchen.

Furthermore, instead of paying thousands of dollars on new cabinets, paint your current ones.

Choose a vibrant color to add a funky look to your kitchen, or opt for classic white cabinets to give more depth and width to your kitchenette.

2. Update The Roof

You may have come across many people saying how important a good roof is, but do you really know how crucial it is to have a reliable roof?

Your roof is the barrier that separates your home from the outside world

On the one hand, a roof in good condition ensures that your house won’t be affected by anything that happens outside, such as rain, snow, or ice.

Ignoring to update or repair your roof, in addition, can easily make your home vulnerable to leaks, mold, debris, and other problems that can cost you a fortune to deal with.

So, whether you want your house to be the envy of the neighborhood or you’re planning on selling it later, replacing or repairing your roof has long-term benefits that you may be unaware of but will be thankful for.

Moreover, a good roof plays a vital part in making your home look appealing.

Even if your property is not going to be for sale, having a well-structured roof and proper insulation will ensure that your home experiences fewer leaks, hence a safe and secure environment.

3. Revamp Your Bathroom

There is always room for a makeover when it comes to bathrooms.

If money is not an issue, replace your old tiles, fixtures, and cabinets with new modern ones to give your bathroom a stylish finish.

However, if you’re on a budget, renewing the tubs’ faucets and showerhead and investing in a new wide mirror will surely make your bathroom look sharp.

You can also purchase new light fixtures, which can transform the entire look of your bathroom.

Make sure to address any plumbing issues, if there are any, before running any updates.

Furthermore, you can remove outdated wallpaper and apply new paint for a freshened look.

In case you have a shower cabinet, you can remove it to give more width to the space.

4. Jazz up Your Deck

Rumor has it, renovations on the exterior of your home add the most value. 

In that case, you don’t want to miss out on renewing your patio or deck to make your home look appealing and welcoming.

First, you need to think about what needs to be changed.

If your floor looks old and worn out, change it for modern wooden flooring.

Add a table, surround it with a few chairs, and place them on a fluffy carpet to feel snug as a bug in a rug.

To jazz the space up a little, add light strings across the fence or add some plant pots on the stairs to provide a homey feel.

If you don’t have a patio or a front deck though, you can build one.

It is best to leave this task to a professional contractor that can do all the work promptly.

5. Replace Your Garage Door

If you want to improve your home’s curb appeal, your garage door can greatly affect how your house looks according to its layout.

You don’t want to have a damaged or dated garage door that can give the exterior of your home an unattractive appearance.

Additionally, when you overlook repairing minor damages in your garage door, it will become more vulnerable to deterioration over time.

By replacing or repairing your garage door, you prevent pests and other impurities from making their way into your home.

6. Decorate and Paint

6 Home Improvements That Add The Most Value: Painting

Decorating your home never goes out of style.

Adding a few statement pieces here and there makes a huge difference and elevates the entire look of a room.

You can invest in simple decorative shelves to showcase family pictures or small artificial plants.

You can also create a wall gallery by hanging different pictures in a specific layout that gives the wall a dramatic vibe.

As simple as it is, painting your walls truly transforms how your home looks and feels.

Pep up dull, patchy walls with fresh coats of paint.

Opt for neutral colors, such as gray, beige, and cream, as they can make any room look sleek and polished.

Hopefully, this guide helps you have an idea of the renovations you can apply to your home.

Even if you’re not going to apply all the ideas above, we hope that they give you inspiration and insights for remodeling your home.

The most important thing, though, is to do what feels right to you and your property and ensure that whatever you do increases its value.
