When remodeling your home you always want to make sure the remodel is for you to make your home more enjoyable and functional in a way you will enjoy. However, where remodeling your home is a major investment, you will want to ensure you get a fair return. Some remodeling projects can ensure you get your investment back if not more, while some remodeling projects can greatly increase the value of your home. For those who may be considering selling their home in the future and want to increase the value of their home, Future Vision Remodeling will share what remodeling projects can add value and how to do it right.
Open Concept Floor Plans that Increase Natural Light in House
When remodeling your home, one way to increase your home’s value is by adding more space and more natural light. Dark cramped spaces are never very appealing and more and more homeowners are looking for ways to add space. Adding more space doesn’t mean adding on a room to the home. However, room additions are still an option for those who find they need a lot more living space. Another option is removing some walls and extending the ceiling when it is possible. Walls that load bearing or that support the weight of the roof and upper levels cannot be removed. However, walls that do not support the weight of the home structure can be removed to help open up more space. Another option is interior window walls to create the illusion of more space and brighter areas. Increasing the room’s exterior window size or adding skylights is another way to bring in more natural light which reduces the need for interior light usage as well.
Front Yard Curb Appeal Landscaping
When the landscaping is done right it can increase the value and the curbside appeal of your home. For those looking to sell it is important to spend a little time improving your landscaping. When redesigning the landscaping make sure to design for drought tolerant plants or those that are water friendly. Lighting can really help add value to a home. Proper light design can enhance landscape features and also increase security for the home.
Outdoor Living Spaces
California has a delightful climate that allows for outdoor activities. More and more people are wanting outdoor living space to spend more time outside. Consider adding a deck or extending your patio for more outdoor living space. You can add an exterior dining area, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, spa, and more outdoor seating for relaxing or hanging out with friends and family. Outdoor living adds square footage and can increase the value of your home.
Creating a Home Office
When adding a study or home office area you will want to make sure it is done correctly to ensure the value of the home. Home offices or studies should have office storage and proper lighting. Another must is a data port and even an extra phone line to provide a private line dedicated for work. Natural light and a great view helps increase productivity and provides a relaxing environment.
