As a listing agent I often here sellers want to add value to their home either during their time of ownership for their own enjoyment or near the end of ownership to increase their sales price. The age old question is what's the ROI. Some items like hot tubs, roofs, high end applainceces, and other nice to haves in many neighborhoods are for customer enjoyment only with little ROI for the next sale.
Here's a nice report that shows the ROI in Texas of many of the projects owners might consider:

One thing I suggest is to visit builders in the area where you live to get an idea of the latest colors, decorating ideas, and upgrades they're putting in their homes. They've often done the latest research and are incorporating ideas with designers, putting in place what buyers want. Many buyers will also be comparing your home to new homes when they are in the purchase phase. So it's always a good idea to see how your home compares to the competition.
