As your home ages, you know improvement projects may become necessary to maintain the house in the way you want. You may also want to add value to the home with these projects. It never hurts to kill two birds with one stone, right? So as you assess different home improvement projects that will aid your home and add value, where should you start? What does your Clayton, MO home need? The answer may not be the same for every homeowner, but here are a few ideas to help you brainstorm.

-Finish Space

If you have an unfinished region in your home, like the basement, you can add value to the home by finishing that space off. Adding space to your home will give you more room for your own family and it will put a higher price tag on the house if you sell it. You can add a game room, finish off an office area, or place another guest bedroom in that space. Whatever you need, finish the area and it will be valuable both now and later.

-Re-do a Bathroom

There aren’t many things you can do to a home that buyers appreciate more than a renovated bathroom. Bathrooms are spaces we all take for granted, but we all spend time there and the area can be both functional and beautiful. When you re-do a bathroom, think about style and beauty as well as basic functions to make the most out of the project.

-Renovate the Kitchen

Kitchens are the heart of any house and when you renovate the kitchen, it adds quite a bit of value to the home. Consider the layout and make sure it’s functional and then get new cabinets or re-do the old ones. Change up the countertops and consider new appliances to fit in with the other changes.  You’ll love the result and you’ll love the value it adds to your home when you sell it later as well.

-Replacement Windows and Doors

There aren’t many projects you can put into action that will do more for the inside and outside of your house other than installing replacement windows and doors. New windows and doors will give your house a whole new look on both sides of the wall. They will also raise your energy efficiency, lower your bills, and increase the value of your home. You get all the benefits in one project and it’s definitely worth your time and effort.
