Six weeks ago, you closed on your first cabin. Since this joyous occasion, you’ve been busy unpacking and cleaning. Because your new cabin is a fixer-upper, you’re planning an upcoming, renovation project. However, you’re unsure what items to add to your remodeling, to-do list. Like many homeowners, building equity is important to you. If you want to complete the remodeling tasks that will provide you with the most bang for your buck, consider the following, home improvements.

Invest in New Windows

Is your monthly electricity bill extremely expensive for the size of home you own? Perhaps, you freeze while sitting in your cabin during the bitterly cold, winter months. Or, you might constantly sweat while cooking in your kitchen on balmy, summer days. If you encounter difficulties keeping your abode a comfortable temperature, investing in new, energy efficient windows might be a great idea. Besides helping you conserve energy, and helping you save money on your electricity bill, installing new windows will add value to your home.

Install Hardwood Flooring

Do you lament the poor state of the flooring in your home on an almost daily basis? If the flooring in your house is stained, scratched, ripped, or outdated, consider installing some new floors. Hardwood floors are extremely popular these days. They can instantly make your home appear warm and homey. Regardless of whether you live in a traditional, contemporary, or modern home, hardwood floors will look amazing in it. For the budget conscious, installing vinyl, laminate, ceramic, or porcelain floors that resemble real hardwoods is an option.

Purchase Dual Sinks

Do you and your significant other experience problems while getting ready each morning? Perhaps, both of you always want to brush your teeth or wash your face at the same time. If the bathrooms in your house only contain one sink, think about splurging on two. In addition to adding value to your home, you will improve the function of it as well.

Utilize a Storage Unit

Improving a home can be one of the most rewarding, exciting, and stressful times of your life. In order to increase the value of your house, you might need to undertake an extensive, remodeling project. During renovations, you may need to remove belongings from large areas of your home. Instead of unsafely stacking them in closets, an attic, or a garage, consider neatly packing them in storage units. While residing in a storage unit, your possessions will be kept safe from the harsh, outdoor elements.

Install New Countertops

Kitchens and bathrooms sell homes. Installing new countertops is a remarkable, easy way to give both of these spaces the wow factor. To create an updated, upscale look, shop for countertops constructed from natural materials such as: granite, marble, and quartz. If your budget won’t allow you to purchase a natural product, you can shop for laminate countertops that resemble natural stone.

Paint the Walls

Is the paint on the walls in your home chipped, stained, or scratched? Perhaps, you abhor the bright colors of the walls in your abode. Simply painting the interior of your home can instantly give it a much needed update. If you plan to sell your home in the near future, select neutral colors. These types of colors will appeal to more potential homebuyers than dark, bold ones.

Home renovations can be costly. Before you knock down a wall, rip up outdated carpet, or replace a bathroom sink, you likely want to know if your actions will add value to your home. If you’re ready to increase the equity in your home while making it look spectacular, consider engaging in one or more of the aforementioned projects.
