Interior Designs That Will Increase Your Home’s Value

Designing and renovating your home will always affect its value when it comes time to resell. While our top priority with any renovation is to make your home more comfortable, live able and functional for your family, it’s important to also keep in mind how future buyers will regard the changes.
If you’re planning to renovate your home anywhere, here are some of our best tips for what will add the most resale value.

– Renovate the kitchen and bathroom.

Most renovation designers will tell you that renovating the kitchen or bathroom, or both, will give you the best return on your investment. Buyers are usually looking for modern appliances, natural countertop materials such as granite or quartz, rooms that feel open, and clean functional flooring in these two types of rooms. Quick, lower-cost fixes such as updating the hardware and the light fixtures can go a long way toward increasing your home’s resale value. In the bathroom, outdated or stained fixtures and countertops can easily turn a buyer up, so updating these are a great investment.

– Add storage, including closets and more.

For expansive homes to tight townhomes, adding storage space is always a great way to make your home more functional for your family, and for future buyers.

– Make small rooms feel bigger with smart furniture choices.

Talk to an interior designer or interior decorator about the best types of furniture to place in each room in your home. Furniture shouldn’t be solely functional, nor solely esthetic. The best-case scenario is that your furniture ticks both boxes effectively. Proper placement and sizing of furniture for your home, especially couches and coffee tables, beds and the dining room table can have a huge impact on how much space your home appears to offer – the more, the better, in most cases.

– Paint.
A fresh coat of paint goes a long way! Fresh paint can instantly brighten your living room, bathroom, kitchen or hallway. Discuss the best color options for your house with an interior designer.

– Hire a renovation designer.
The best way to get the most out of your renovation for your family and for buyers down the road is to work with a professional renovation designer who can help you make the best decisions for your specific property.
