1. Improving Your Kitchen

A kitchen renovation can in some cases be a costly one, but improving a space that is used every day is worth the investment. One concept that is often used is removing the wall between the kitchen and living room, creating one large family space. Maybe your kitchen is already spacious, but you want to create more prep space with a custom island or peninsula with seating. You can also look into upgraded appliances, which your family or potential buyers are sure to appreciate.

2. Re-purposing An Unused Room

Do you have an unused room that could be used for more than just storage?

One idea is to turn your home office into a guest bedroom for family or friends staying overnight. On the other side of the coin, if you have a guest bedroom but never entertain; use that extra room as a study.

Maybe you need to use an extra room for storage after all. Imagine turning that room into your own walk-in closet.

3. Outdoor Additions - Decking, Patio or Pool

You do not want to forget about your outdoor area during your renovation. You may want to add a decking with plenty of space for a grill and furniture. Why not add built-in benches for entertaining? A buyer who loves to host gatherings may appreciate the extra seating. A pool for the summer is sure to increase the value of your home, or you can add a pond or garden if swimming is not important to you.
