Remodeling Projects That Pay Off
These remodeling projects will increase your home's resale value, improving chances for a speedy, attractive offer when you decide to sell.
 


Spruced-Up Front Door
  • Adding a new front door -- or simply painting an existing door and installing new hardware -- makes a great first impression and increases your home's curb appeal.
Kitchen Improvements
  • As the hub of the house -- and its hardest-working room -- the kitchen deserves special attention. New appliances and refinished or refaced cabinets can pay off handsomely.
Cabinet Makeover Tips
  • Not in the market for a full kitchen remodel? Try one of these easy cabinetry updates for a new look in no time.
Fresh Paint
  • Few other fix-ups can give you so much improvement for so little money and effort. Use a unified color scheme of neutral shades.
Simple Landscaping
  • Flowerbeds, foundation plantings, paths, and borders can make a huge difference in your home's appeal. If you buy small plantings and let them grow into their role, you get a particularly high value per investment.
Additions and Outdoor Living Spaces
  • Additions that suit your home's style, scale, and traffic flow generally add value -- as do well-designed outdoor living areas such as porches and decks.
Added or Upgraded Bathrooms
  • Generally, adding a bath to a home that has only 1 or 1 1/2 baths will pay off at resale. Elements that prove most popular include ample storage, natural light, and ceramic tile on the floor and tub and shower surrounds.
Updated Faucets and Fixtures
  • Add allure to baths and kitchens with good quality, stylish fixtures and faucets. These changes are relatively easy and inexpensive.
New Knobs, Pulls, and Light Fixtures
  • As with new faucets, these easily installed off-the-shelf items boost style and have a big impact with relatively little cost and time.
Renewed Surfaces
  • Worn flooring and chipped, scarred countertops turn off buyers; refinishing or replacing these surfaces with good quality upgrades provides instant appeal.
