Renovating your home is often necessary if you’re on a mission to put your home on the market. Speaking from experience, you usually start at one end of the house and before long, your list is as long as your arm. However, in order to get a good return investment on the home you’ve owned for years, you need to replace the old with the new.
Here’s a list of definite home renovation needs to maximise your returns:
1. Replace old windows with aluminium ones –
You’ve had the same windows for years, which means they’re most likely out-dated. Opt for installing durable Horizontal Sliding Windows – which not only saves up valuable space by sliding to the side, but it looks much neater while giving your house a modern feel.
2. Improve the landscaping –
That’s the first thing potential buyers see when they look at your home. Invest in doing some landscaping upgrades by either hiring a professional company or converting it in a DIY project.
3. Replace light and plumbing fixtures –
Out with the old and in with the new! Your light fixtures are most likely discoloured and your taps are outdated, which is why updating to more modern fixtures that fit with the feel of the property will convey the style of your home much more effective.
4. Install aluminium doors –
Installing VistaFold Folding Aluminium Sliding Doors is a great way to bring the outdoors inside, opening up the space – which creates the feel of a bigger surface area than what you probably have. It’s also a modern option when wanting to replace any outdated sliding doors.
5. Upgrade the kitchen counters –
Everyone wants a beautifully modern kitchen. Whether you install new laminate kitchen counters or go with a granite top, upgrading the look of your kitchen with spark potential buyers’ interest.
6. Replace carpets with tilling –
It gives your home a clean, modern feel to it. You can always place a decorative rug over a portion of the tiles. Just remember to go with a neutral, earthy colour tile that fits with almost any style or colour theme.
7. Paint –
Give your walls a fresh coat of paint to brighten up your living space. Go with a neutral colour which will open up the space and make your home look clean and “fresh.” It’s always a good idea to paint the exterior of your home as well, especially if you haven’t done it in a while.
8. Upgrade your bathroom –
Give your bathroom an upgrade by replacing the bathtub or shower, whichever you have installed. This is another area in the home that potential buyers would consider a deal-breaker.
Install vibration sensors or motion sensors on your aluminium sliding doors to improve the security of your home – which will increase the value of your home, especially during the times we’re living in today.
