Home improvement projects are a gamble. You may end up with what you had hoped for, but you may not know how the improvement affects your home’s value until it’s time to sell it.
Here are simple home improvements that won’t cost you an arm and a leg:
Installing a New Door
Pick a door that’s efficient for insulation. Choose a design, colour and material that goes well with the rest of your house. Make sure the brand is known for its longevity. Ask about the warranty not just on the product but also on the workmanship, so you’re covered for the door and the installation.
Adding Plantation Shutters
Plantation shutters are Melbourne home owners’ favourite additions to their windows for a good reason. They add beauty to just about any window, from dual pane to bay windows. The Timbershades Group recommends plantation shutters to home owners who want low-maintenance window covers that still serve their purpose. They also add privacy from prying eyes, and a level of security for your home.
People who are looking to buy a new house are not likely to choose one if they believe they have to spend more on renovation. If they see that the insulation is already perfect, that’s one less thing to worry about. With improved insulation, you save on repairs and the cost of heating or cooling
Replacing Your Windows
In addition to making your home look nicer, you also help your insulation with replacement windows. Get low-e glass windows that reflect heat, or double-glass windows with argon sealed between the glass. This prevents the transfer of heat and cold within the window.
Major bathroom or kitchen remodels may be popular, but they may cost a fortune, and you may never recoup that amount. With these improvements, you won’t spend too much and still enjoy the benefits when you decide to sell your home.
