Home remodelers and improvement stores have seen an increased demand for services in 2020 as more people are living and working and going to school at home than at any time in modern history. This has led to a new regard for the home as one’s castle. Aside from the convenience, comfort and efficiency a multi-functional home can offer, there are also economic benefits to remodeling your home for the current times. Many types of projects and upgrades will actually add value and pay off in the long term.
There are many easy ways to increase your home’s curb appeal. Upgrade the façade by painting the porch or front door. Put in new landscaping or refresh what already exists. Install a new garage door, windows or siding to give your home a cleaner look.
For many people, the kitchen is the heart of their home. Add a tin tile backsplash to brighten up the room. Upgrade your faucet or replace cabinet hardware. Add a hanging rack for pots and pans to free up cabinet space. Keep the light warm, but not dim. You can achieve this by installing LED under cabinet lighting, which is budget-friendly and easy to DIY.
You can make small improvements in your bathroom, or completely renovate it for a spa-like atmosphere. For a quick overhaul, choose white paint and tile. Small houseplants add an organic element. Add mosaic tile if you have a small space. If you are going for luxury, install a freestanding tub, marble countertops and a chandelier.
Deck or Patio Addition
Give your backyard an upgrade with an outdoor living space. Install a deck or patio, weather-resistant furniture and a grill. String lights for a warm atmosphere. Add a television, firepit and outdoor kitchen for a great entertainment spot.
Adding a room to your house is a beneficial project, especially room additions like a home office. A finished basement or attic will help you reclaim unused space. Repaint your home interior and install new flooring for a whole new look.
When remodeling, remember that people are spending more time at home and using more electricity and energy for heating and cooling. Upgrade with energy-efficient appliances, solar panels, and smart devices that conserve energy.
These projects will increase the value of your house and add convenience and comfort while you still call it “home”.
