If you are looking to increase the value of your home through a renovation, House of Mirrors has some great tips on what to add to your home.
How Effective Will the Reno Be?
The first thing you’ll want to do is think about life span. Are you investing something in your home with a degradable value? This could include fixing a shower, adding roof tiles, or painting. When you are thinking about renovations, look for things that will have a lasting impact for your home, that won’t decay or degrade quickly. Think about how many years this will last you and if it’s something worth investing in your home. If it’s only going to last five years, and you plan on living in your home for longer than that, it won’t do you much good in terms of lasting value.
The rules of decay sometimes apply for modern updates if you’re choosing a renovation that involves technology. It doesn’t make much sense investing in a hi-fi setup or new TV that can’t be switched out, since we know how quickly technology changes! However, creating a modern set-up in a metropolitan area is a good idea in order to keep up with new, small, highly sophisticated modern apartments.
But most importantly, don’t go for a cheap remodel. Do your homework when it comes to home renovations to ensure that the contractors you’re hiring are experienced. Look at how they’ve been reviewed by previous customers. When you’re looking to install something that will last past the sell-date of your home, make sure you’re hiring the best.
