If you’ve been following us on social media, you know we love trendy homes, especially those with the white-cabinet kitchens, hardwood floors, and porcelain, stand-alone bathtubs. Are you as in love with this look as much we are? Here are some ways to add that trendy touch to your home without breaking the bank. And an extra bonus? It adds value to your home!
Update the kitchen. This is arguably the most important room of your home, especially when it comes to selling. According to a similar article on Truila, kitchen upgrades can have a return on investment of 85%. “The kitchen is just like the bathroom: full of fixtures that can make your house look like a million bucks.” The kitchen is what everyone notices. Now a full kitchen remodel is not always feasible, but changing up a few things can make a big difference. Maybe add in stainless steel appliances or put in new countertops. Still out of budget? Give those cabinets a new paint job, or install one of those farm-style sinks. One or several of these options will definitely give your house that trendy touch you’re looking for.
Put in new floors. According to ThisOldHouse.com “94% of real estate pros recommend spending some money on floors… For an estimated average investment of $600 to $900, brokers report that the return in value comes in at up to $2,000.” Nice, neutral floors aren’t likely to go out of style. Wood floors are always a great option and will add value to your home. Their quality or beauty is not easily looked over.
Modernize the bathroom. Doing so is always a good idea, but it may not always be a good idea fiscally. If you can’t do a big bathroom project, no big deal! Just changing a few things can really add that trendy touch you’re looking for. Just replace the frosted glass with clean glass. Maybe repaint the cabinets or install new faucets. You’d also be surprised how much a new toilet seat can do. You can easily spend under $500 on just a few bathroom tune-ups.
Change up that backyard space. Adding a nice deck is a great option and easily adds value to your home. According to John Veneris, the regional vice president of the National Association of Realtors, “People get back dollar for dollar for the decks they put in.” Living in Arizona, a deck is especially a great investment. With the gorgeous weather and the ability to spend so much time outside, decks are definitely used; therefore, adding a great deal of value.
