7 Home Renovations You’ll Get Your Money Back On

We might have (almost) year-round pool weather here, but building your goal pool might leave you underwater — they may be home reno money pits. Instead, here will be the best fix-ups (big and small) that more often than not boost your home’s value. ENTRY WAY Curb charm, people. You may miss this center point since, well, it’s covering in plain view. But an upgraded door, or fresh cover of paint onto it and new hardware really can refresh the entire vibe of your house.

New Paint A fresh coat of car paint is similar to a facelift for your home, changing the looks from meh to mmmm-hmmm. For reference point: Real wood should be re-painted every three to seven years; stucco, five to six. Anything eco-wise Swapping kitchen appliances with low-water, low-energy options indicate you can brag about any of it in a genuine estate listing, making your home audio up-to-date. Tankless drinking water heaters, front-loading washers, even new insulation in the attic are smart-money options.

Kitchens Fine, a gut reno of the complete shebang — including stealing some square video footage from a neighboring room — is every home chef’s desire. But just changing the cupboard doors, counter top and floors can be adequate. Bathrooms Kitchen areas and bathing rooms, the old real property sales maxim should go, are what sell homes. If you are flush, get a gut restoration with luxe areas like marble or tile mosaic, so long as the look is clean and common. Normally, swapping out kitchen sink and shower hardware and re-grouting tile are happy options.

French Entrances Want your home to feel more spacious? Try out this technique tailor-made for warm climates: Replace house windows on a family group room, den or dining area with French entry doors that open up onto another patio.
