5 Ideas For Making Home Resolutions
Making home resolutions is an important step in maintaining and enhancing the look of your home. Whether you plan to live in your home forever or are looking to sell and build a new house, doing home improvements are part of home ownership and will maximize your home’s value and beauty. When the year is coming to a close, it’s a great time to make some resolutions for your home for the upcoming year. These improvements will help to make your home feel new again. Here are a few things you can do to increase the value of your home this year.
Upgrade Your Flooring
Changing the flooring in your home can increase your home’s value significantly. Going from carpeting to hard wood, laminate, or tile will increase the worth of your home and its salability. You can easily change one room at a time or many. Although this change may seem daunting, with the proper tools, it can even be done on a budget. It will update the entire look of your home.
Finishing The Basement
A great way to increase the value of your home is to complete an unfinished basement. This is a larger size project but finishing the basement can add a lot to the value of your home as well as the enjoyment of your home. Finishing a basement allows you to utilize this space in your home. And, when it comes time to sell, your home will be worth a lot more.
Install Energy Smart Technology
Technology is making energy consumption a lot easier to regulate. Look into the many green home building tools available now you can use to control the lights and temperature of your home remotely. This technology will help you to turn off the lights easily and you can also control the temperature when you are not home. By installing energy efficient technology, you will find a lot of hidden savings.
Go Low Maintenance
Think about going green with your landscaping. Replacing your lawn and plants with low-maintenance plants and grasses improves curb appeal and will benefit you long term. When you use drought-resistant landscape plants, you will reduce your use of water. Adding these plants cuts costs and requires minimal effort on your behalf for upkeep.
Add An Outdoor Living Space
Adding a porch or other outdoor living space will definitely help to increase the value and appeal of your home. People love to spend time in outdoor spaces like this. Good looking patios don’t need watering, mowing, or fertilizing. If you choose composite decking, it will be easy to maintain. This will give your home new look and its value will increase.
