4 Home Design Investments to Make for Higher Resale Value


If you are even considering selling your home, it may be time to invest a little bit of time and effort into making upgrades that will boost your home’s resale value. There are endless ways that you can invest in your home that will pay off quite handsomely when it comes time to sell. Below are four ways to upgrade your home that will immediately pay off quite nicely in upgraded home value.

Bathroom Remodel

Over the past decade or so the bathroom has gone from a room of mere function to one of increasing importance when it comes to resale value. A bathroom remodel, even a minor one, is one of the top ways to instantly increase the resale value of your home. If you don’t want to remodel the entire bathroom, get a new vanity and lay down some nice tile—you can look to tile stores in New Jersey that ship across the country for trendy tile. Focus on the master bathroom and the bathroom that guests are most likely to use as a priority.

Minor Kitchen Upgrades

Similar to the bathroom, the kitchen has gone from a room that used to be one of mere function (cooking) to literally the hub of many households. While you don’t necessarily need to overhaul your entire kitchen, installing new, modern cabinets, adding an island with a chic countertop and stools, and adding a breakfast nook will greatly increase your home’s resale value as well as make your home highly attractive to families.

Lighting Upgrades

Perhaps one of the simplest ways you can increase your home’s resale value is to upgrade the lighting. Your goal should be to have a multi-level lightscape that can easily transition depending on the activity. Adding trendy recessed lighting that can be dimmed as the occasion calls for.

Exterior Upgrades

Remember that when you are looking to resell your home the first thing potential buyers will see is the curb-view. Simple exterior upgrades such as adding a new door, having the lawn professionally landscaped, adding stylish modern shutters, or adding a new garage door will instantly help your home make a stunning first impression, therefore increasing the resale value. Of course, these are just a few ways that homeowners can instantly upgrade their home’s resale value. Another great way that’s more of an investment is to turn your house into a smart home with the latest technology. No matter what upgrades you decide to make, every little bit will contribute to a boost in resale value!
