Whether you’re thinking of selling or you’re ready to renovate, it’s important to choose home improvements that will also improve the resale value of your home. Here are the 5 best upgrades you can make.
- Minor Bathroom Reno
Don’t knock down any walls or reroute piping. Bathrooms can look brand new with a coat of paint and new fixtures. Replace scratched tubs, sinks and shower doors and re-caulk around the bathtub and shower.
- Replace The Front Door
Improve the curb appeal of your home with a new door and hardware. Steel doors look modern and are extremely strong and secure. Plus, they aren’t affected by changes in temperature so they won’t crack or warp.
- Update The Flooring
If you’re planning to sell in the near future, it’s time to get rid of any carpeting and replace old flooring with hardwood or even great-looking laminate.
- Minor Kitchen Remodel
New countertops, cupboard doors, hardware or stainless steel appliances can make a big visual difference in a kitchen. You don’t need to replace all of these, but one or two upgrades will definitely elevate the look of your home.
This is the lowest-cost and easiest way to improve the look and value of your home. A fresh coat of paint makes any room look bright and clean, but choose bright, neutral colours over dark, trendy or bold ones.
