5 Upgrades That Will Increase Your Home’s Value

When it’s time to sell your home, you want to sell it for more than you bought it for. That’s the beauty of appreciation in real estate. Usually, this is the case, especially if you have lived in your home for many years and the area has gained popularity. 

However, there are some things that you can do to help you increase the value of your home even more. With some upgrades and updates, you’ll be surprised at just how much the value improves along with the atmosphere and beauty of your home. 

Updated Kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where people spend most of their time, whether it’s cooking, entertaining guests, or simply hanging out as a family. So, an updated and modern kitchen that is comfortable, bright, and beautiful will make your home worth so much more. 

You can start by replacing old appliances with new energy-efficient ones. Update the counters and cabinets so they’re fresh and in style. If possible, add some even more lighting to the kitchen – even if it’s beneath the counter, it’ll make all the difference. 

Finished Basement

Having a finished basement means having an entire additional room in your home. There are so many options you can do with a finished basement. Some people choose to turn it into an entertainment center, recreation room, fitness area, or even add another bedroom and bathroom down there. 

No matter what you choose to do with it, you’ll be impressed at what finished floors, drywall, and some heat can do to that once dark and cold area of your home. 

Renovated Bathroom

Even though the bathroom really isn’t something to show off to your guests, having it renovated is a complete game changer when it comes to your home’s value. Upgrading the bathroom with optimal lighting, new flooring and countertops, and updating the shower or bathtub will make all the difference. 

A simple search on Pinterest can help you find inspiration for what people are looking for in a bathroom these days. 

Backyard Patio

If you have a beautiful yard and great weather at some points during the year, you may want to consider adding a brick patio or seating area. This is a great place where people can enjoy a morning coffee or evening cocktail during the summer and warmer months. 

Making this addition to your home adds a whole other feature to it! Not only will the interior of your home be valued, but also what you can offer on the rest of the property. There are many options to choose from and Brickworks Property Restoration can help you decide which is best for your home. 

Hardwood Floors

Carpet is so early 2000s. Now everyone wants a home with hardwood floors. They’re easy to clean and don’t hold the germs and dust mites that carpets do. Plus, they don’t stain, which is great for families with children and pets. 

Replace any carpets with beautiful hardwood floors and watch just how they can transform your home (and its value) for the better.
