Simple Household Improvements

Did you know that real estate agents typically advise homeowners that renovating a kitchen or bathroom can add significant value to your house? Handyman Connection insists that you don’t have to spend a fortune when it comes to household improvements. Even if you’re currently not contemplating buying or selling your house anytime soon, it is important to consider household improvements that can add value and worth to your beloved home in the future.

There are several home improvement projects that can make living in your home more enjoyable and potentially pay large dividends later when, or if, the time comes to sell your home. As a homeowner, the most important thing to focus on is making improvements that are essential to the comfort of living to you and your family. However, also think about how these renovations could add additional worth to your home in the future. With proper planning, the right building materials and a little bit of elbow grease, small household improvements can be completed in as little as no time. Handyman Connection recommends trying these easy kitchen and bathroom upgrades that you can do on your own:

  • Accessorize the bathroom: The master bathroom should have a tub and shower combination; bathtubs add significant value to a home. To update the look of your shower, replace the showerhead with an eco-friendly one that fits in with the latest trend. Luxury showerheads are incredibly popular these days as people want to escape reality by relaxing in their homes. Changing faucets, sinks and bathroom vanities are simple household improvements for a minimal investment. You can visit a local home improvement store and look over their selection of bathroom accessories. Last but not least, carpet in bathrooms is very unappealing to potential home buyers. Replacing carpeting with heated tile floors is a wonderful alternative. Carpet can be hard to clean whereas clean-up with wood or tile flooring is a breeze.
  • Spruce up the kitchen: Painting the walls of your kitchen with beautiful warm tones, such as a golden yellow, makes the space appear homier and more inviting. Replacing cabinets can be incredibly expensive and time consuming. Therefore, consider re-facing, staining or painting the cabinets instead. There is also the option of upgrading the cabinet hardware with some fun handles or knobs. Don’t be afraid to put your own personal home improvement touches on your home.
