Whether you’re looking to renovate your home to put it on the market or you want to increase the value of your property for the benefit of your family, there are several home improvements to consider. Some projects are simple but make a huge impact while other decorative tasks take more time but can make your home look like a completely new space. Here are some improvements that will immediately elevate your family residence.


Bathroom renovations are another way to attract buyers to your home or make your home more functional for your family. Consider your renovation budget so you can decide which bathroom remodeling projects are best for you. Installing a new sink or toilet can immediately upgrade the bathroom. Painting the walls and retiling the floors and showers are practical renovations as well. Installing or replacing the vanity or mirror can make the bathroom look larger and make the space more functional since you’ll be able to get dressed or do your makeup in the bathroom instead of the bedroom. If you’re looking to make a huge renovation, consider adding another bathroom to your home. This is ideal if you have a large family or want to make your home more attractive to buyers.

Unused Spaces/Rooms

If you have a space in your home that isn’t functional or that your family doesn’t use often, consider renovating the area to make it a livable part of your home. For instance, you can reorganize your home and get rid of the items in your spare bedroom to turn the space into a family room or playroom for the kids. You can also turn part of your unused garage into a workout room or home office. To make these spaces more livable, think about renovations like replacing the flooring, adding mirrors and storage space, and repainting the walls. You can also add or replace lighting to contribute to the ambiance of the room and make it easier to complete certain tasks. Depending on your renovation budget, you may also want to add a half bathroom to the room for added convenience and to raise the value of the home.


Whether you decide to make major or minor upgrades to your kitchen, you can significantly increase the value of your home. Remodeling Magazine asserts that you can recover anywhere from 53% to 72% on your kitchen renovation depending on the type of remodeling project you’re doing, where you live, and the city or state you live in. Improvements can include installing a new backsplash, updating your light fixtures, or adding a fixed or removable kitchen island. You can also add or update the exterior doors in the kitchen so you can easily access the porch or back yard. Adding laminate, tile, or wood flooring to the kitchen space boosts your property value and improves the overall look of the kitchen area. You may also want to upgrade the appliances in your home; if you’re thinking of selling your property, you may want to consider leaving some of the appliances such as the microwave or dishwasher so you can increase the asking price of your home.

Outdoor Spaces

Even though you may think of indoor remodeling when you think about home renovations, you can make some significant changes to your outdoor area as well. Update your deck and patio with composite decking or wood and paint it a color that will coordinate with the exterior of your home. By updating or adding a deck and renovating your patio, you can increase your home’s value by over 64%. You can also line the pathway to your front door with brick or stone to improve curb appeal. This is a simple renovation project that may be able to complete yourself if you’re especially crafty.

If you already have a patio or deck, pressure washing and refinishing these elements can make them look as good as new. Evaluate the deck and replace broken or rotting boards and repaint the deck before adding new deck or patio furniture.


There are just a few things you can do to improve the look of your home and make the various areas of your house more welcoming or spacious. The colors and elements you choose for your renovations can also make it easier to show off your personal style, which is ideal if you and your family plan on staying in your home and want your space to be more relaxing and inspiring.
