Curb appeal

Perfecting the landscape to improve curb appeal of the home is not as expensive as many would think. Unless you are planning an intense work of installing walkways in the lawn, you will mainly need to plant a few plants, trim the existing ones and add a bit of exterior floral decoration. Good landscape lays first impression which can never be a bad one.

Beautify traditional safety arrangements

Traditional safety basically includes outer gate and a fence upon the outer wall. You can beautify these features to improve value of your home. The fence and gate made of steel bars look attractive because they allow the green lawn to be viewed outside the home. Paint these features according your preferences to make them look fresh.

Don’t forget the fixtures

The features such as door knobs, faucets and light fixtures are often overlooked during renovation of home. Imagine living in a home that has been painted fresh but you still have to deal with the worn out, rusty or out of order fixtures. That would definitely give you some frustration.

Kitchen and bathroom deserve extra attention

When you allocate budget for home renovation, you need to keep in mind that kitchen and bathroom are going to take the huge chunk of it.

While renovating your kitchen, it is not necessary to go for the top-of-the-line appliances only. You need to make sure that basic functionality of your kitchen is not disturbed. If you have got enough money after perfecting the basics of your kitchen, you can now consider installing expensive appliances.

If you have master bathroom, it would require attention more than any other attached bathrooms in the home. Master bathroom is often seen as an oasis by the potential buyers.

If you have only one bathroom in your home, try to add another one. This addition may be an expensive one but it will add extra value to your home.

Avoid certain renovations

There are a few renovations that give nothing in return. Instead, they tend to decrease the value of your home. For instance, it makes no sense to renovate a room into a home office if you do not have enough rooms in the home. Similarly, enforcing the creation of swimming pool by killing the space of lawn can also be nothing more than an unwise practice.
