5 Value-Add Residential Remodeling Projects

Residential Remodeling Oakland County MI

Are you interested in selling your home in the near future? Even if you plan on staying in your home for years to come, there are still benefits to remodeling. Remodeling is a way for you to invest in your home so that you can increase its housing market value. 

Residential remodeling projects can also help customize your home to your lifestyle and design preferences. An experienced residential remodeler can help you determine which remodel will add the most value to your home and your life.

1. Bathroom Remodel

Bathrooms are often neglected when it comes to residential remodeling plans. This is a shame considering that bathrooms are one of the most-used rooms in the house. 

This means that whatever bathroom remodeling you choose will have an immediate impact on you and your family’s quality of life. For example, a newly-installed luxury shower can help ease away the stress of a long day of work or watching the kids.

Is the bathroom tile starting to look faded or yellowed? It may be time to hire a reputable bathroom remodeler to install new bathroom tiling. Other common bathroom remodels include bathtub replacements, bathroom cabinet installation, or new bathroom remodels. Adding a new bathroom can give you a 60.1% return on investment.

2. Kitchen Remodel

Many people say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. This means that paying for kitchen remodels can have big payoffs when it’s time to sell your home. When potential homebuyers walk through your house, they will be paying particular attention to the kitchen. 

This is partly due to the fact that people spend a lot of time in the kitchens. However, it’s also because kitchens can be the most expensive room in the house.

If you have aging kitchen appliances such as stoves or refrigerators, kitchen appliance replacement may be a good move. When people see old appliances that have been there since the house was originally built, it can persuade them to not put an offer on your home. 

This is because they know that they will have to replace those appliances sooner rather than later. Brand new kitchen appliances, on the other hand, add value to your home and attract potential homebuyers.

3. Bedroom Remodel

There can be a big difference between selling a three bedroom house and selling a four bedroom house. If you have the space in your home for an extra bedroom, or if you are willing to invest in home addition construction, an extra bedroom can be a great way to add value to your home. 

Bedroom remodels not only have a direct impact on your quality of life, but they also help make your house look nicer for potential homebuyers. In fact, an attic bedroom can give you an 84.3% return on investment.

4. Basement Remodel

For many homeowners, their basements consist of largely unused space. Let’s change that. There is so much potential in your basement that could be unlocked with the right design and build construction contractor. 

Whether you are interested in a custom-built wine cellar or an entertainment room for your big screen TV, basement remodels can turn dark dank spaces into luxurious underground retreats. By reclaiming the basement, you will be able to expand your current living space.

5. Home Office Remodel

Do you have a home office? If so, you’re not alone. Working from home has become immensely popular over the past couple decades. From 2005 to 2017, remote work shot up 159%. It’s no wonder people are making the switch from office buildings to remote work. Studies have shown that working from home increases both your productivity and your job satisfaction.

However, an inefficient home office can leave much to be desired. A home office remodel will make your life easier in the short run and attract buyers for your home in the long run.
