Home renovations are a popular way to turn your current home into your dream home without having to move. Whether your goal is to improve energy efficiency, make your home feel more luxurious, or increase home value before you sell, pursue one or more of these home remodeling trends in 2016.
As more and more homeowners become concerned about energy efficiency, the idea of replacing old windows with efficient models has soared in popularity. The return on investment is about 75% of the total cost if you seek window replacement prior to selling your home. If the goal is to reduce your heating and cooling bills, your savings will vary depending on the quality you choose.
In the end, higher-quality replacement windows deliver the greatest long-term savings. In addition to helping you save money, installing new windows can also help:
- Improve your home’s curb appeal
- Increase interior comfort all year round
- Reduce maintenance and prevent headaches
Entry Door Replacement
The high value of replacing your front door is surprising to many people. Many homeowners recoup more than 100% of their investment, which is incredibly rare among home improvement projects. Even if your goal isn’t to recoup your investment in a sale, a new front door can do wonders for improving your home’s curb appeal and making a good impression on guests who visit.
Kitchen and Bath Remodel
There are two rooms that really sell a house: the kitchen and the master bathroom. As the most high-traffic rooms in the homes, and the ones with built-in appliances that make or break your experience there, it’s clearly worth remodeling an outdated kitchen or bathroom if you want to increase your home’s value. A remodel – even a minor one – could also be enough to make you fall back in love with your home and decide not to sell after all.
Garage Door Replacement
As with entry door replacement, installing a new garage door is bound to provide a great return on investment and make a big difference in your home’s curb appeal. Choosing an insulated garage door also creates the opportunity to use your garage as more than just a place to park your car. By expanding the living space into the garage, you can add more square footage to your home and broaden the possibilities of using this room to the fullest.
