Chances are your home is one of, if not your biggest assets. You’ll want to make sure you take care of your home to not only maintain its value, but to keep it looking its best. If you’re considering doing some investments and upgrades to your home, I’ve picked out my top 3 investments I think you should consider in order to increase the value of your home and to make it more comfortable to live in. So no matter whether you’re looking to sell, or want to keep your home for the long term, these 3 upgrades will be worth your time.
1. Plumbing and Heating
There’s nothing worse than being cold! Proper heating especially when you live somewhere that gets cold, is crucial to feeling comfortable in your home. There are many changes you can make to ensure that your home is not only more effectively heated, but that the heat actually stays inside. Stjohnplumbing.net offer a variety of services to ensure that your heating and plumbing is durable and will function perfectly during the cooler months when heating is needed the most. They also do a variety of other home renovation projects including bathrooms and kitchens.
2. Install a Bar
Covid has really dampened my social life, I’m not sure about yours but I’m guessing it’s the same. Going out in the midst of a pandemic doesn’t quite have the same appeal as before. For that reason, I suggest making a home bar! You can invite friends and family over, mix up your own cocktails, and enjoy time drinking together without the worry of mixing with large groups of people in crowded spaces. I love the bars created by luxury millwork, they’re beautiful and statement pieces that would add character to any home. Installing a custom bar means you can have one made to your specifications, one that perfectly fits your space no matter the size, and has plenty of room for all your favourite liquors!
3. A Modern Bathroom
I’m not sure why, but of all the rooms in the house, the bathroom is the one that I want to be the most modern. I think it’s in part because a newer bathroom just feels cleaner – which is exactly what you want for the space where you’ll bathe yourself. If your budget doesn’t extend to a new bathroom, why not pick pieces of your bathroom to upgrade. Maybe that means installing a newer shower and/or free standing bath. Maybe you want to redo the tiles that are very dated. Whatever you can afford, focus on that and you’ll quickly notice how much of an upgrade it feels to be. Having a modern bathroom can also make it a lot easier to sell your property, as it dramatically increases the value of your home.
Making upgrades and changes to your home is an exciting step. Hopefully these three suggestions inspire you for ways that you can upgrade your home!
