Remodeling Projects that Increase Home Value

The Dallas area has a lot to offer, and homeowners who are lucky enough to have found a home in just the right neighborhood may not be prepared to move, even when their home no longer suits their needs. One of the best ways to resolve this dilemma is with a whole-home or partial remodel to increase functionality and breathe new life in to a tired, outdated, or inadequately-sized home.

When planning your home remodel it’s just as important to consider how the changes you make will impact your life now, in addition to how they may impact your ability to sell your home in the future. While you might not be planning to move any time soon (after all, you’ll want plenty of time to enjoy your newly remodeled home!), it never hurts to factor in how the changes you make might affect your home’s price tag. Here are some great remodeling ideas that will help increase the value of your home to maximize your investment and satisfaction.

Upgrade the Kitchen

Renovated kitchens not only sell homes, but they also improve the appearance and performance for the current owners. Kitchen remodeling offers one of the greatest returns on your investment, but remember to keep the style, size, and quality in line with the rest of your home if you plan to sell it in the near future. New appliances, counter tops, cupboards, and paint can breathe new life in to a tired space, and the addition of a pantry or island can give you more work and storage space. When choosing new elements, consider current trends along with classic upgrades to ensure that your kitchen is as timeless as it is functional.

Add a Bathroom

In homes that have only one bathroom or a floor with no bathroom, adding another one can enhance the value and functionality of the home. If you’re wondering where to place your new addition, keep these minimum space requirements in mind:

  • Half bath – 18 square feet of space
  • Full bath with shower – 30 square feet of space
  • Full bath with bathtub –  35 square feet of space

Bathrooms can be upgraded in a variety of ways, including double vanities, walk-in showers, and soaking tubs. Whatever your aspirations are for your new bathroom, we can make it happen!

Reinvent a Room

When possible, repurpose an existing room rather than increasing your square footage with an addition. An unfinished attic or basement can be converted to include one or more bedrooms, an extra bathroom, or as a bonus multipurpose room. The room over your detached garage may be converted in to a separate apartment and used as a rental space, or for college-aged children.

Replace Your Windows

Instantly increase the energy efficiency, comfort, and value of your home by replacing your old windows with energy efficient, thermal windows during your home remodel. We can make recommendations on the best windows to suit your home’s individual needs.

Enhance Your Outdoor Living Space

Relatively mild year-round temperatures mean those who live in Dallas can spend several months of the year outdoors in comfort. Extend your usable living space by incorporating a new deck or covered patio as part of your home remodel. Outdoor seating, fire or water features, or an outdoor kitchen can add value to your home by adding living space without the additional expense of walls, flooring, electrical, and plumbing.

Whole-Home Remodeling

Homes that lack functionality or space or that are outdated or inefficient will benefit greatly from whole-home remodeling. By renovating several rooms in your home at once, you can ensure continuity in quality and design for a more cohesive look and feel. The overall flow of your home can be improved by rearranging the space to suit your needs and by upgrading your appliances, fixtures, lighting, and other decorative elements, your home will appeal to a much larger demographic.
