Home Renovations that are Worth the Investment

~ This is a featured post. ~

Home improvement projects are a great opportunity to add character and create a better living space, but they could also raise the value of your home too. Even if you have no intentions to sell your property in the foreseeable future, it’s always worth thinking about making your home a piece of prime real estate in case you do decide to sell several years down the line. However, not all home improvement projects will provide a return on investment. Here are some of the best projects to choose if increasing the value of your home is one of your goals:

The Roof

An essential part of your home’s structure, the roof is an area that should always be paid close attention to. Not only does a damaged roof lead to higher bills (loss of heat) but it could also spread causing further damage to the rest of your house due to damp and leaks. If your roof is looking worn out or you have noticed some signs of damage, call roofing contractors immediately to inspect it. Although work on your roof can be costly, it’s a vital investment.

Converting the Attic or Basement

If you live in a property that has both of these spaces, converting one into an extra room could be a good idea. Originally designed as storage rooms, it’s good to keep at least one of these areas for this purpose, as adequate storage is desirable in a home. However, if you don’t need to use them both for this, converting one into another bedroom, games room, study or den would help to add value to your home. Having an additional bedroom would make your home appeal to larger families, and if you choose to convert to one of the other suggestions, it appeals to those looking for a little more luxury or a home office area.


If you have the space to extend your property this could be yet another wise investment. Like the point above, adding extra rooms onto the house makes it more appealing to larger families looking to buy. You might not be extending the property to add another room, but instead creating a larger one. If you have a small kitchen, living room, or bathroom, these are all good candidates for extending as they serve more practical purposes in the home.

The Kitchen

Whether it’s an extension or just remodeling, the kitchen is always worth investing in. One of the most important rooms in the house, having a well-designed and well-equipped kitchen is what many buyers look for when inspecting properties. Installing a good-sized stove and oven will be ideal for families or those who are keen cooks, and adequate storage or a built-in pantry will look fabulous as well as being practical.

The Garden

Don’t underestimate the power of your garden. Having a beautiful outdoor space is very appealing to those looking to buy a home. It doesn’t have to be big, but taking care to make sure it looks nice with a good patio, plant pots and character will win many people over. If you can, hire a landscape gardener for a truly incredible transformation.
If you want to add value to your home, choose your renovation projects wisely. Select one of the areas above.
