If you renovate based on making a profit on any future sales, you might find that you feel like you are living in a show home rather than a place that feels like home.

To Make Sure It’s Safe

Some renovation projects can’t be left. Things like any electrical problems, a crack int eh foundations, or a leaking roof are just a few of the problems that must be looked at with urgency. They will help to keep your home safe and prevent any future damages. 

To Increase The Value Of Your Home

If you want to sell the house you are living in over the next few years, then renovating part or all of your home may help to increase the return on your initial investment. If you want to get the best price possible on the market then some reno projects are in order. Think about opening up the living space, replacing the front door, and updating the bathroom and kitchen. 

To Improve The Functionality

Maybe you need a second bathroom, a playroom, or need more space so you can chase the kids around without running into walls.

    If I could change things in my apartment, I’d make the bathroom more handicap accessible and the kutchen ,too, for that matter.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    Lord, Dad picked lilac for the hallway in the old house. I mean Dad wouldn’t care if he had odd socks on!

  • Tamra Phelps

    I’d like to change a few things around here. I wish the walls weren’t all plain white… but I rent, so I can’t change anything.

  • Kate Sarsfield

    I’ve got rid of all the dated and personal choice colours (not everyone likes lilac!) and gone for white walls, taken down family pictures & wacky ornaments and souvenirs. If the buying public don’t like it now I shall curl up & cry.

        This is what my neighbor did. I adore lavender, but know not to do it now. I need to get my place ready to sell, and need to paint. I’m surprised I’m having a hard time picking what would be best for getting a sale, other than knowing neutral, but you still have to figure out for the existing tile or flooring etc. what will go with it.

    Did a major overhaul of my kitchen almost 2 years ago. I’m debating about my master bath – it’s hard renovating when you’re retired.

  • Tamra Phelps

    If I were to update this place, which I won’t since I rent, lol, I’d make it more handicap accessible. When you spend part of your time in a wheelchair, you really notice how everything is out of reach!

  • dana

    Did a big reno of my kitchen that was completed a year ago. Been really enjoying it. Trying to decide if I should move onto the master bath.

  • Rosie

    This is a good list. I used to think it is better to do a reno closer to when you move in, but reno’s can look dated in a decade, so may be better to do mid- or later- before you want to sell, but you probably won’t recoup all your costs, sometimes, but there are tables that show estimated cost and ROI, usually less than 100%, but you can sell faster, saving taxes, insurance, and potential liability from people coming onto your property. I have replaced appliances, etc., but not renovated, I’d love to, but don’t have the funds.
