Best Kitchen and Bathroom Upgrades to Improve Your Home’s Value
There are no guarantees in the real estate market. That house down the street may sell quickly, while yours remains unsold. Renovations and home improvements are the best way to increase the value of your home. But if you want your house on the market soon, then you likely only have time for a few bathroom improvements or kitchen upgrades. Just what should you do first so that your house is desirable for the new home buyer?
Best Bathroom Improvements
A WaterSense toilet model can help families to save money on water consumption, and they are also good for the environment. These toilets also look sleek and attractive, and will freshen up an older bathroom.
Having the sink and cabinet replaced will give your bathroom a modern look. Replacing the mirror and lighting will also help. Take a look at your bathtub to see if it’ll fit with your new sink and toilet. Often all that’s needed is a good scrubbing and cleaning of the tiles, particularly if the tub color is already your basic white to match sink and toilet.
Best Kitchen Upgrades
Eco-friendly appliances are trendy today. Not only are they best for the environment, but their lower water and energy consumption can save you money. Your dishwasher, washing machine, and water heater are the big water consumers, while your washing machine, dryer, fridge, dishwasher, stove, and fans are going to be concerns for energy costs.
You may not have time to do a full kitchen gutting. Instead of removing the cabinets, you can have their doors refinished, and install new hardware.
New kitchen sink faucets and sprayers will be the quickest way to update your counter space.
The look of the kitchen can also be updated quickly with a brand new light. If your kitchen has old fluorescent lighting, this should be removed. Newer and more eco-friendly lighting is available in LED lighting fixtures.
If you have grey or blue poly pipes in your home, they can be at risk for leaks. This can send a red flag to new home buyers who don’t want to deal with this expense. If you’re planning on doing more extensive remodelling in your bathroom or kitchen, you may wish to have your plumber replace these pipes during the process.
Plumbing upgrades can substantially increase the value of your home. It’s also important to fix any leaks and do repairs. Plumbing issues are usually the number one concern that a new home buyer has, as water can significantly damage the structure of a home if leaks aren’t dealt with quickly.
Bathroom improvements and kitchen upgrades are going to be the best ways to increase the value of your home. Most of the other rooms will only need a good carpet cleaning and some fresh paint on the walls. Be sure to tackle any smaller repairs too.
