When it comes to home remodeling, the possibilities are endless and it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Whether you’re updating for your own enjoyment alone or for the purpose of selling your house at a greater value, here are the three best home renovations to start with.
Upgrade Your Guest Bathroom
One of the most important rooms to make an impression on guests in any house is the guest bathroom. (After all, there’s nothing more uncomfortable than a bathroom that feels dingy even if it’s technically clean.) Start by replacing old mirrors and wall decor to freshen up the room. Getting new shower fixtures can go a long way to brightening up the appearance of the room. And although they can be expensive to renovate, countertops and toilets can be a dead giveaway that a bathroom hasn’t been updated in a while, so consider replacing them if you can.
Refresh Your Kitchen
Your kitchen is also a room particularly deserving of your home remodeling efforts. Kitchens aren’t just a place to store and cook food; they’re often one of the main gathering places for families and friends to spend time together over meals, coffee and game times. Again, having countertops replaced can be one of the most effective updates you can make. If you want to start more simply, replacing the lighting fixtures is a relatively easy way to update the look and feel of your kitchen.
Update Your Dining Room
Finally, the dining room (or even breakfast nook) is a great place to start getting your home up-to-date. Having a professional remove old carpet to uncover (or install) hardwood flooring goes a long way to cleaning up the look of the room. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders. Even changing out curtains and other decorative fixtures will help.
Home remodeling can be exhausting and even dangerous at times, so be sure to hire the help you need for both planning and implementing your renovations. Starting by renovating these three rooms will get you well down the road toward both loving your home even more and selling it for a greater profit.
