Increasing Your Home’s Value By Remodeling Your Kitchen or Bathroom
Spring is here, and things are blooming. It’s the time of rejuvenation and renewal. Maybe you’re waking up from the winter grey to realize that your kitchen is looking tired, or your bathroom is uncomfortably outdated; or, you’re thinking of selling your home. Either way, worry not – there’s a lot you can do to revamp the old look! From smaller improvements to major remodels, not only does it all make your home more comfortable, but it also increases your home’s value!
“People buying a house look first at kitchens and baths,” says Kermit Baker, director of the remodeling futures program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University. So even if these areas require more cost to redo, they tend to be the best overall investments.
If you’re thinking of upgrading so you and your family can enjoy your home even more, you can certainly make plans to create that gourmet kitchen or dreamlike bathroom., and go as extravagant as you desire.
If you’re going to remodel your kitchen for resale, it’s best to go for traditional materials and appliances, to make sure you’re speaking to a broader audience of perspective buyers.
So, if you want to sell your home, all of the industry experts agree that a kitchen renovation should be at the top of your list, as stated by LifeHacker. Kitchen is the heart of a home and where families spend most of their time. Jane Bianchi continues to advise that starting with upgrades to stainless steel appliances and installing countertops made from engineered stone or granite should be your first steps. These changes are pretty easy and will improve the visual appeal of the kitchen.
If you’re looking for a more in-depth yet wise kitchen upgrade, think about creating a more open layout by removing a full or half wall, so you can connect the kitchen to a dining room a den, or a living room. “It makes the kitchen feel more spacious,” says Phyllis Rockower, owner of the Real Estate Investors Club of Los Angeles, CA. “If you’re cooking, you can still hear what people are saying during a party, or keep an eye on your kids while they’re playing.”
