The 5 Best Tips for Maximizing ROI on Home Improvements
Welcome to the ultimate guide to adding value to your Las Vegas house…or as we like to call it, “How to turn your house into a snazzy, fancy-pants mansion that will make all your neighbors’ heads turn.”
Renovation #1: Upgrade the kitchen and bathroom
First up, let’s talk about the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen and bathroom are some of the most important rooms in your home, and remodeling them with mid-range fixtures can yield an average of 58.6% return on investment. To make these upgrades fun and playful, consider adding a breakfast nook with a bay window or expanding your shower space. These upgrades will not only make your house more appealing to potential visitors or buyers but will also provide you and your family with years of enjoyment.
Renovation #2: Install new energy-efficient windows
Installing new windows is a great way to let in more natural light and show off your interior decorations. Plus, you’ll be able to show off your fancy new windows to your neighbors. #CurbAppealGoals
To remodel your home cost-effectively, pick and install some brand-new, energy efficient windows in key locations like the living room, bedroom, and dining room. The right replacement windows can introduce more natural light into your house, making it feel more welcoming and spacious without knocking down walls or raising ceilings.
Even better, new windows can significantly improve curb appeal and increase the value of your house. Imagine installing a new picture window (window types blog) in your living room to showcase your Christmas tree or how great window boxes would look on the outside of your home in front of a set of casement windows. Getting new windows for your home is a great passive selling tactic to get prospective home buyers interested in your house.
Bigger windows are usually better
When it comes to installing new windows in your home, bigger is better. Large expanses of glass let more natural light inside and showcase more of your home’s interior decorations from its exterior. Large picture windows are a perfect window option for the dining room or living room. Meanwhile, bow or bay windows can expand your living room or bedroom, plus offer some extra decorative room thanks to their spacious sills. Casement and awning windows can also open up bedrooms and kitchen spaces for maximum effect and are easy to clean.
Invest in energy-efficient windows
No matter which kinds of windows you choose to upgrade, be sure their replacements are energy efficient. Energy-efficient windows can save you money on your energy bill by trapping in heat during the cold winter months and the cool inside air in the summer season by using thermal technology. Energy-efficient replacement windows also help protect the inside of your home by using low-e window coatings.
Renovation #3: Install fresh hardwood floors
New or restored hardwood floors can make a major positive impression on potential buyers, and they’re sure to be an improvement project with a big ROI. To make this upgrade more fun and playful, consider adding a bold pattern or bright color to your hardwood floors or installing them in a unique shape, like a herringbone pattern. And don’t forget about the floors! Say goodbye to that old, stained carpet and hello to sleek, shiny hardwood floors. Your feet will thank you and your home value will skyrocket.
Renovation #4: Replace the entry door
A brand-new front door can make your entire home look like new and significantly improve its curb appeal. To make this upgrade more fun and playful, consider painting your front door a bold color or adding a fun door knocker.
Renovation #5: Add a deck or patio
Adding a deck or patio to your home is an excellent way to add value and provide a fun and playful outdoor space for your family to enjoy. Consider adding a built-in fire pit or outdoor kitchen to make your deck or patio even more enjoyable.
