Home improvement is one of the joys of owning your own home, but many homeowners aren’t sure which, if any, improvements are worth making.
Of course, you need to consider things like how much value a given improvement will add to your home, whether you’re likely to sell your home in the next few years, and which improvements will add the most utility to your home.
Thankfully, we’ve looked at some of the best and most valuable home improvements for the South Florida market, and we’re here to help you decide which projects are worth taking on.
These renovations are good if you’re planning to stay in your current home for a while and want to make it more functional as well as more comfortable.
However, these aren’t the kinds of renovations that are worth doing even if you won’t use the new space. You should only renovate if you’re going to use these improvements.
South Florida has fantastic outdoor cooking weather year-round. Take advantage of an outdoor kitchen complete with a grill, pizza oven, and any other appliances you and your family will use.
Outdoor kitchens aren’t the only space that can use some love. Consider renovating your kitchen to better suit your needs, whether that’s making room for a bigger refrigerator and pantry, or adding a center island or even a built-in bar.
Multi-story homes should consider adding a kitchenette, especially for multi-generational families, guest suites, or mother-in-law suites.
Bathrooms are often one of the most neglected spaces in your home, but they’re also some of the most important. Update the walls and flooring, upgrade your shower or bath, and even consider a new sink or toilet.
Garages are a great multi-purpose space, but they’re overlooked too often. Consider adding shelving for added storage, making your garage workshop a more permanent feature, or just making more space for vehicles.
These renovations are great if you want to protect the value of your home or are considering selling soon.
Fresh paint is one of the best ways to update your space and make it look better. Choose neutral tones for homes that are going up for sale, but don’t be afraid to go for bold colors if you’re planning to stay.
New countertops can quickly make a dated kitchen or bathroom look new again. Just try to make sure you’re getting a high-quality and durable counter material, even if you aren’t choosing the best or most expensive option.
Replacing or refreshing your flooring, especially in rooms that show signs of wear and tear, is one of the best ways to give your home a new lease on life. Plus, it can be a huge plus for buyers if you’re considering selling. Just look up trends in what’s fashionable right now.
Bathrooms can be another good investment when you’re getting ready to sell or want to increase the value of your home. Just remember that quality and fashionable design really matter when it comes to getting your money out of a bathroom renovation.
Weatherproofing is a must in South Florida, and updated weatherproofing can help protect the value of your home or even increase it. Checking on your weatherproofing is a must here, but updating or getting better quality weatherproofing can increase the value of your home.
These renovations are more about making your home more comfortable for you, and personalizing a home you’re planning to stay in long term.
Everyone has slightly different needs in a truly great closet, so why not customize yours to do more of what you need and less of what you don’t?
Bedrooms, like closets, serve different purposes for different people. If you aren’t satisfied with a regular rectangle bedroom, consider what might improve it and go ahead with the renovation to get the bedroom of your dreams.
