While renovating your home, you need to clarify with yourself the reasons you are doing it. If your goal is to get the house sold and earn a decent amount of profit, then you need to invest wisely while remodeling your habitat. You need to understand the perspective of probable buyers out there and redecorate your home accordingly. But if you are doing it for your own sake, then you need to check out what needs to be redone and what should stay the same. For example, if for years you were itching for that open terrace where you can enjoy the early morning sunshine with a cup of tea or the garden where you could plant all your favorite flowers, you should get the help of an architect and also an interior decorator because these two along with a real agent are instrumental in helping you sell your new redecorated house! The following should help you get a clear idea on how to go move forward with the remodeling.

Home Improvements – Getting The Most Bang For Your Buck

  • CURB APPEAL:

They say that a  book is not judged by its cover. But in some cases it does! And your house is the perfect example of this. It will not be incorrect if we say that homeowners treat their abode as little children and they love it when their children are praised. So if you are renovating your residence and want to add something eye catching, you can build an open terrace or a sidewalk with enough lights or what about a porch with a little swing? Another interesting thing would be to add a garage and you can use it for other purposes too. You can store old things and also transform it into your own space if you want to spend some lone time or for all you music lovers there, a garage is often a cool place to jam or practice on that piano!

  • KITCHEN AND BATHROOMS:

We often hear the saying about a family that eats together stays together. A visually appealing kitchen helps today’s modern family to leave their individuals lives for a while and come together as an entire household and enjoy a warm dinner. Ask any architect and he will tell you that kitchen and bathrooms are the parts of a house which usually speaks volumes about the owner’s taste. People usually spend a lot of time there and when it comes to construction they are usually the most expensive investments. If you are living in a big house with two balconies, four bedrooms, but only two bathrooms, then it would be wise of you to add an extra bathroom or remodel the existing ones. An extra bathroom helps in case you have guests at home. If you are not really into Jacuzzi, then let go of the tub and get a walk in shower instead. Think traditional and get stone floors and wooden cabinets installed if you prefer the old world charm. Also get rid of that old hideous mirror and buy a mirror which creates an illusion of a bigger bathroom.

  • WALLS AND PAINT

If you are planning to sell your home, you should stick to neutral colours because you wouldn’t want potential buyers to get distracted with all those extravagant colours  which are a reflection of your taste, not theirs. You can consult all points chem dry OC for further assistance to select the wall texture. Your walls should be like a blank canvas for them, which they can fill up with their own palate. Neutral doesn’t always mean white, though. You can use shades like Nantucket gray, providence olive, Carrington beige, barley, etc. But don’t just stick to walls. You need to create a stirring first impression and for that you should also get your mailbox, porches, patios and most importantly your front door painted. A fresh coat of paint in neutral colour often gives the impression of a spacious room which is surely going to work as an advantage for any prospective seller.
