The main question you need to answer before renovating your home is: How can I improve my house to increase the resale price?
Kitchens and bathrooms are the two most important rooms in your home. When potential buyers view different houses, they often pay the most attention to these rooms, checking the facets, countertops, flooring, walls and lights.
Typically, homeowners tend to alter kitchens and bathrooms to suit their needs. Although this is important, you need to make sure that the refurbishments you invest in add value to your house.
Here are a few wise ways homeowners can invest in their bathrooms and kitchens:
Renovate with the future buyers’ needs in mind
Most buyers avoid buying a house that needs a lot of renovation work done in the bathroom or kitchen.
Lack of flow, over-crowded space, lack of bath or shower, poor planning, poor washing-up areas, bad tiling, etc. will affect a potential buyer’s decision to purchase a property. So – when renovating, even though you may think purple bathroom tiles are cool, the buyer may not. So, try keep your colour schemes neutral and hold back on ideas that someone else may not like.
Invest in storage space
Most people have a storage problem. A bathroom needs space to hold toiletries, fresh towels, etc. and a kitchen needs plenty of storage space for crockery, cutlery, pots, pans, groceries and the like. Creating bathroom cabinets and extra kitchen storage space does not have to be overly expensive – stylish storage spaces can be created using a wood laminate such as PG Bison’s MelaWood board.
Invest in quality
Quality beats quantity. Install quality appliances, bathroom and kitchen fittings, and even kitchen countertops that will last to avoid having to replace them frequently.
