Remodeling your Kitchen

We all considered that the kitchen is the heart or the center of our home. Working in our kitchen is unlimited. No start, no end. Updating this room is pay off. If you really want to remodel your kitchen, expect that you are about to spend sixty to one hundred twenty percent of your investment. Always remember that you should not make your kitchen to be fancier than the other part of the house.

Bathroom Addition

If you only have one bathroom in your house, this can get a big chunk in your investment also. Always consider the spaces in your house such as closets, under stairs and so on. You need at least eighteen square meters if you need a half bath. You need at least thirty square meters if you really want a full bath that includes a stand-up shower. If you also want a bathtub make sure you have around thirty five square meters to work for a bathroom addition.

Reinventing a Room

Still thinking if you add more square footage to your home? Well, this is incredibly expensive project. Try to reinvent the existing space in your home to save more money and time. Try to finish a basement and convert the attic into a bedroom.

Add Energy Efficient Windows

Nowadays homeowners really shop for a homes with energy efficient in mind, the reason is they want to lessen the use of electricity and to add that saved money into savings. Energy efficient windows can save up to five hundred dollars a year. According to my research expect to spend around sixty to ninety percent of your costs if you are going to invest in energy efficient windows.

Deck Addition

If you want to have add some deck in your home, that is a good idea, because adding some deck will add some value in your home. If you are going to add deck in the backyard and make it more appealing, this can be a priceless to stay at home. Your family will go home as early.

Basic Updates

Basic updates can also add more value in your home. Always keep the paint fresh, cool in the eyes, and fix the roof when it leaks. Replace the ruined or the wood that rots, and remove some molds that you find. These are all the types of tasks that keep your home from deteriorating. Replace the wiring at home, repainted the outside, fix or replace the plumbing and also repaint some interior.

We often discover some leaks in the house and need more insulation:

  1. In the around doors and windows
  2. In the around electrical sockets or sometimes in light switches
  3. In recessed lighting
  4. In the attic hatch
  5. In the basement
  6. Anywhere ducts and wires outside the house


We all want to have a healthy, safe, solid home. Like any project, the cost of adding some project in your home is depend in the project that you are about to do. Remember that you don’t have to make your home fancier, just maintain the cleanliness to avoid sickness and harmful diseases and build harmonious relationship inside your home. Still you have many options for your home improvement that really add value to your home. Remember that adding value to your home can make your home sell in a higher rate if you want to sell it someday, if you also have a plan to move someday. Focus on how you can save money in repairing some leaks or replacement in your house. Always add comfort in your home, this can make your family happier and add long life. Small home is fine as long as the love is the biggest and the happiness and joyous days arrives. Having a big house does not mean you are rich to look, always remember the value of the house is in the owner. And how the people inside the house love each other.
