Home additions and renovation projects are a fun, and profitable, way to make your house one step closer to becoming your dream home. Especially if you’re willing to put a little elbow grease into a project or purchase, you’ll have many options to make your house beautiful while building valuable home equity that could come in extremely useful down the line. Many people fail to realize just how many accessible, impressive and home equity-boosting projects are out there for them to take on. To assist you in finding the one that’s just right for you, here are eight of the most perfect home additions that will boost your home’s equity:
Island appliances have become all the rage in the last five years. They are built to keep all your useful appliances neatly and compactly stored within a single island in the middle of your kitchen. If you’ve always been annoyed by how cluttered your kitchen can be, remodeling and crafting your kitchen to have an island appliance is one of the absolute best, and trendiest, home renovations you can dive into.
Stairs are one of the most dangerous places in any home. Thousands upon thousands of injuries happen on poorly maintained or designed staircases throughout the US every single year. For those who are too old to use the stairs, or have a disability that prevents them from doing so, stairs provide extra anxiety. Home elevators are the perfect solution, and they are becoming more and more popular in US homes, making them incredibly attractive to many homeowners.
Your home is your castle, and if you want to protect your castle, you need to be strong. If you’re a fitness nut, you’ll get an insane amount of value by building a dedicated workout room in your home (or repurposing an older room for this particular purpose). Imagine all the money you’ll save on gym fees, gas, and other workout-related services, and you’ll be biting at the bit to craft a dedicated workout room in your home. Just think how much easier it will be to motivate yourself to work out if you have everything you need in the most convenient place possible.
More and more people are working from home. With this change, the value of having a dedicated home office in your home has risen dramatically. Especially if you’re looking to boost your home equity with modern-minded workers, having a home office in your house is an absolute must. Thankfully, repurposing an old room to be office-friendly is easy, allowing this to be one of the cheapest, but still highly valuable, choices on this list.
If you love to host, you’ll get an insane amount of value out of a deck or patio. You won’t always want to be inside when having friends, family members, and neighbors over, so having a comfortable outdoor space to host people is a must. Even if you’re more of a loner, the comfort and beauty a deck or patio provides to your home are worthwhile (and the home equity you’ll be adding to your home will just be an added bonus). The insane amount of customization that can go into a deck or patio project will make the adventure that much more exciting.
Bathrooms are one of the most essential places in your home, and they must be well-equipped and comfortable if you want your home equity to be on solid ground. Adding a bidet, installing more energy-efficient fixtures, and keeping the space as cozy as possible are all great ways to make the most out of your bathroom remodeling efforts. After all, if you’re shooting for a stellar remodeling job, you might as well shoot for the stars.
Solar panels are becoming one of the most cost-saving, home-equity boosting projects homeowners can undertake. The amount of energy savings you’ll gain from solar panels even after a single year is mind-boggling. The fact that some states will even pay you to install them makes the project that much more attractive. If you’re crazy about saving the environment and saving on your monthly energy bills, this is an option you should take into serious consideration.
While less well-known, painted, decorative ceilings are one of the biggest rising trends in the home renovation and equity landscape. Many people rarely think about their ceilings, and this is primarily because they keep them plain, dull, and unmemorable. If you want to wow your loved ones, and have a beautiful piece of art to look up at every time you enter your home (or when you go to bed), painted ceilings are a surefire hit. The home equity value of them is isnae when compared to the minuscule cost the project requires, making them that much more attractive to consumers.
With these eight projects, you can begin making your house your dream home. There are so many benefits to these projects aside from the home equity they’ll be packing onto your home, so taking them into deep consideration, and finding the project that’s right for you and your home, is highly recommended.
