Increase the Value of Your Home

Posted by Steve Hester on Wednesday, March 04, 2015

Have you ever gotten that feeling where you just need to rearrange a room and simply try something different because you were bored of the same look or style you lived with for years?

It’s normal to become a little dissatisfied with the way your home looks after years upon years of looking at the same walls, cabinets, etc.  A little change is good once in a while, and this need for change can lead to a variety of remodeling projects that can bring some life into your home and even increase the value of your home! Full remodeling projects can get expensive which is why it is important to choose the correct rooms in your house to remodel along with the right company for the job that will bring the largest increase in value to your house.

When choosing, there is no doubt that Hester Painting & Decorating will give you the best quality for any job and increase your value the most, but when choosing which room to upgrade, there are a couple options that will increase your home value the most.

Kitchen

As you probably could have guessed, remodeling your kitchen will definitely increase a the value of your home. However, to completely gut your kitchen and do all this construction work can be costly and time consuming. With simply adding some new wallcovering, painting the ceilings, redoing the cabinets making them look brand-new, and few touch-ups here and there, your home value can increase just like that. You shouldn’t spend more than 20% of your home value because in most cases spending this will not compensate for your resale value.

Bathroom

Bathrooms are the second most remodeled area of a home. Whether it’s a powder room or a master bathroom, a well-designed bathroom can increase the price of any home. The best way to upgrade your bathroom at an inexpensive price is to simply repaint or add new wallcovering, replace tile, and add some new fixtures. If your budget is a little tight and you have multiple bathrooms, you might want to pick the highest profile bathroom or seek professional help to determine it.

There are many other projects that can be done within and outside your home that can increase the value of your home; such as putting in new doors and giving them a nice protective coating, fixing up your windows and painting the trim, and even repainting the exterior of your home making it look like new. Any remodeling project can get expensive which is why it is important to take the time to think of where you want the changes to be made,  what changes should be made to those areas, and research who will give the most long term value.
