Raising the value and sales potential. Fresh paint, clean shutters, a new roof and neat landscaping are simple ways you can enhance curb appeal if you're looking to sell.
Prepare for Retirement
If you plan to stay in your home thorough your senior years, upgrade your home with aging-in-place features. Replace your bathtubs with easy step-in showers with grab-bars and install toilets for people with limited mobility or in wheelchairs.
Paying too much for your utilities? Replace your single-panel windows with energy-efficient windows and you can save hundreds in monthly bills.
Upgrade Your Kitchen
Expand, add an island, a pantry, a new stove, replace your refrigerator or add new cabinets to make it more functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Update Your Bathroom
Tired of that pink tile? Replace it. Put in new plumbing, and replace that old mirror with a beautiful framed one. And don't forget the lighting.
Don't want to leave your neighborhood because your children would have to change schools? This probably means that you and your family won't be moving until your kids are grown. Why wait years to remodel? Make your home suitable for the future now.
Your Home Feels Out of Date
It's nearly perfect but needs a facelift. Paint your walls and baseboards to make it feel fresh again. This is a good alternative for anyone on a budget.
