One thing you can pay attention to as a homeowner is renovation.
There are many reasons for renovating, and some reasons are: the desire to experience luxurious living right at the comfort of home, the desire to maximise available space, or the desire to put up the house for sale or rent. Regardless of your reason, the result remains the same—a home with added value.
If you’ve been looking into renovation, then you may be experiencing difficulties deciding on the parts or sections to be renovated and how exactly they should look. If this is the case, then know that this isn’t exactly surprising—the parts or sections of a house that can be renovated and the ways these sections can be renovated are most likely as many as the reasons for renovating.
Here is a rundown of the top renovations (in no particular order) that can be done to your home to make it luxurious and comfortable, and, as a result, more valuable.
A basement remodel is a good way to stretch available space in your home. It’s also a great way to motivate you to get rid of all the junk that’s been piling up in there.
There are two ways to remodel an existing basement. The first is to turn it into a second living room or an entertainment centre, and the second option is to transform it into a home office. If you’re looking to turn the basement into an entertainment centre, your options include turning it into a mini theatre or game room.
Regardless of how you want to remodel the basement, make sure it is properly ventilated, and any plumbing parts that run through it free of leaks.
Entrance Door Repainting or Replacement
Did you know that a shabby-looking entrance door can decrease the value of a house by a significant amount? So if the paint of the door is peeling off, have it repainted right away. If the wood is in the process of rotting for some reason, then have it replaced by a professional right away.
Make Your Home Accessible to Those With Special Needs
Making the house accessible to people with special needs is another renovation option that increases the house’s value. This is because it eliminates the need for a buyer or renter to alter the house in any way to make it accessible to a person with special needs who is living with them.
Some ways to make the home accessible to people with special needs include the installation of ramps, installation of wider doorways, the replacement of rounded knobs with lever door knobs, and the installation of stair lifts.
Installation of a Rainwater Harvesting System
In places where they are legal, a rainwater harvesting system can be an asset. This kind of system, after all, ensures a steady supply of water and lets homeowners save a good sum of money on water.
To get the most out of this kind of system, make sure all the essentials are set up—an unpainted metal catchment, gutter, downpipe, rainwater tank, pump (mounted pump or submersible pump), and devices that connect the rainwater harvesting system with the plumbing.
Add a Deck
A deck is a great addition to your home whether your front yard has enough space for parties or not. This is because a deck is a place for your barbecue that can be set up just high enough so whoever is on it can appreciate a view of the neighbourhood, parts of the city, the night sky, or even all three.
