4 Home Upgrades to Consider: A Quick Guide

Did you know that around 90% of homeowners in the U.S. plan to remodel their home at some point? If you are part of this statistic and are looking for some home improvement projects, you are in the right place. We have put together this short guide to share some top home upgrades that will make your home feel more like you and can also add value to your house.

Read on to get those creative wheels spinning on how you can improve your home.

  1. Garage Door Installation

If you have a garage door that is old and worn, then it is time to upgrade. This small upgrade can add around $2000 in resale value to your house if you decide to sell your home in the future. Also, if your garage door has to be opened manually, then upgrading it to be opened with a remote is another smart upgrade option.

If you would rather not change your garage door, then you can opt to paint it. Make sure you invest in paint that will last and is meant to withstand mother nature.

  1. New Flooring

Another way to improve your home is by changing your flooring. While this might be a more costly investment, if you choose better flooring, you will dramatically increase your home’s value.

Opting for solid hardwood, is a classic and traditional esthetic that people love. Also, waterproof flooring is another option that is popular. Waterproof flooring is a great choice if you have kids and pets because if something is accidentally spilled, it is easy to wipe it up, and you don’t have to worry about ruining your floor.

We recommend calling a professional flooring company such as Ultimate Floors to help you choose the best flooring option for your needs.

  1. Minor Bathroom Reno

If undergoing an entire bathroom renovation is not in your budget, no worries because you can make a few small changes to spruce up your bathroom space. One small change is to swap out the current hardware for something new.

You can also paint the walls or change out the current mirror. These small changes will not only give the space a facelift, they will also add value to your home.

  1. Add Mulch

Sprucing up the outside of your home will add curb appeal and make your home feel more welcoming before even stepping inside. You can order a truck delivery of mulch or buy individual bags at your local hardware store.

Mulch can be laid around the base of trees around your property or on your garden beds. As an added bonus, mulch will also save you water.
