An Addition Or Remodel

Deck Addition 

If you have the space and ability to add a deck to your home, you will not regret it. Adding outdoor space to enjoy is huge and adds great value to your home. Utilize the strengths of your property to choose the best fit and deck it out.  

Kitchen Remodel  

Kitchen remodels are one of the biggest tips to maximizing your ROI, and you never know, it might be the space that you end up crafting into your dream. Kitchen remodels can take time and be costly, but if that is one area you do not enjoy or you see selling in the future, a kitchen upgrade is most definitely worth your while.

Modern Lighting  

Lighting is a huge way to modernize and upgrade your space. Adding recess lighting or modern pendants throughout your home is an innovative way to freshen up on a budget.  

Fresh Flooring  

Flooring makes a world of difference to a room’s overall look. Consider refinishing or replacing the flooring. The great part about this tip is it isn’t an all-or-nothing task; you can go room by room.  

Bathroom Facelift  

Having an upgraded bathroom is something buyers look for. Replacing the fixtures and lighting are easy improvements to giving your bathroom the ultimate facelift. Rather than replacing the vanity, try a DIY and paint it yourself. Adding floating shelves is another way to add storage and maximize your look.
