Remodeling your home can fulfill your vision of your dream home and pad your home’s value at the same time.
For most homeowners, it can be difficult to pinpoint a project that accomplishes both. Too many times, renovation projects look great, but fail to add sufficient value when it’s time to sell the home.
Here are five tips that will ensure your investment is recouped and meets your home renovation goals.
Home office conversion
If you have the space, creating a designated home office will add immediate value in more than one way. As most employers establish new work-from-home policies, the home office has never been more convenient or useful.

Bathroom upgrade or addition
If you have an older home, chances are the bathroom situation is less than ideal.
As people spend more time at home, they begin to notice how vital bathroom space is in everyday life. Now is the time to invest in either upgrading your bathroom or adding another one.
Whether it’s new fixtures, cabinets, paint or other amenities, a bathroom renovation will make everyone at home happier.
Potential buyers will appreciate the upgraded facilities, too.
Before we know it, spring will be here and everyone will want to spend more time outdoors. Nothing quite beats your very own backyard escape.
A new deck will surely recoup its value at the appropriate time – especially if the structure is well planned out. Seating, high-grade materials and unique features like fire pits and benches will spark new life into your outdoor space.
Let there be light and extra space
One quick trick that gives the appearance of a larger area is to add lighting. Or you might decide to physically create more space.
This simple tip of enhancing the home’s natural and artificial light sources will open up the home and create better flow. Knocking down walls can also brighten a room and open up the floor plan so you can do more.
It’s easy to dream about a kitchen renovation and go over budget.
Building materials such as granite and marble can quickly increase the project costs. That’s why it’s important to balance project costs and value. Be selective and budget for updated appliances or other features that are sure to attract attention and help recoup costs.
