By remodeling your home, you’re bringing it up to date without having to buy new. One of the greatest benefits to remodeling is that it improves the value of your home and makes it more attractive to future buyers, should you decide to sell down the road. If you’re looking to remodel your home to improve its value, here are five ideas for you to consider.
Upgrade the bathrooms
One sure way to improve the value of your home through a remodel is by looking at the new design trends for the year and implementing them. For example, one of the new trends for bathrooms is a destination tub. This free-standing tub opens up your space and can make a master bathroom feel like an all-inclusive resort. In fact, many millennial homeowners are removing their tubs entirely as they don’t have time for baths and instead prefer showers. If you’re really looking to appeal to the millennial market, a walk-through, dual-head shower may be perfect for the on-the-go homeowner.
Improve your home’s wellness
Another home improvement trend is an increased focus on home wellness. Home wellness upgrades include, but are not limited to, non-toxic materials being used during the remodeling process, water and air purification systems and circadian lighting to improve sleep. Since home wellness is a popular trend with the millennial market, adding these improvements to your home during a remodel will help you appeal to them and will increase the value of your property.
Update the kitchen
Most Americans spend a considerable amount of time in their kitchen. With this being said, it should be a pleasant and up-to-date room to hang out in, and future homeowners agree. If you are looking to remodel your kitchen to increase the value of your home, it’s extremely important to consider the cost of the materials and work compared to the value it will add. If you add marble or granite counter tops, will you be able to get back this money and more when and if you sell? If not, it’s recommended to consider other upgrades that can help increase the value of your home without breaking the bank.
Add smart features
In a world where everything is at our fingertips thanks to technology, why should our homes be any different? Many homeowners are upgrading their homes to have smart features. If you can beat them to it with a home on the market that already has these features, this is sure to stand out against any other homes they may be looking at. Smart features can range anywhere from smart sinks in the kitchen, to smart lighting and to unmonitored security systems.
Add a home office
An increasing number of companies are allowing employees to work from home either part-time or full-time. Opening up an existing space or converting an extra bedroom into a home office can really increase the value of your home both monetarily and functionally for millennial homeowners. If this is something you’re considering, be sure to add grounded outlets and USB ports to the room for easy charging and accessibility.
