WHAT TO REMODEL IN YOUR HOME FOR THE BEST RETURN!

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty World Platinum


When you're ready to nail down your plans (so to speak), here are suggestions from industry experts:
 
Kitchen
Add usability with dual sinks and cooking stations. Add aesthetics with commercial-quality and stainless steel appliances, stone or stainless steel countertops and ceramic tile back splashes.
Add space with breakfast nook or walk-in pantry. Add livability with computer desk, mudroom, or hobby area.
Siding
Remodeling the exterior is as much about maintenance as it is about curb appeal. Vinyl siding looks fresh and tidy year after year with minimal upkeep.
With stucco siding, a new polymer covering can be sprayed or troweled onto a fiberglass mesh base.
Bathroom
Add light with skylights and glass blocks without losing privacy. Add space with walk-in dual shower, vaulted ceiling, recessed medicine cabinet, or a curved shower curtain rod.
Add functionality with twin sinks or vanities. Add aesthetics with ceramic tile or stone flooring, stone countertops, heated towel bars and floors.
Windows
New windows will help you realize additional savings in monthly utility bills. Prospective buyers view windows as they do other structural items, so failing to update old ones can result in lower-or no-resale offers.
Newer styles include seamless bent-glass corner windows, curved glass, and casements with no center stile.
