Here's a list of top 3 projects sure to give you a great ROI on your home.
Doing a kitchen update instead of a complete remodel is like getting someone else's junk. Yes it’s cheaper, but also a big mistake in the long run. A kitchen update is just a bandage over a larger wound. Is your kitchen so outdated no one would be comfortable cooking there? Go for the full-blown remodel if it's within your budget. If you have to overhaul the plumbing and wiring or you have galley kitchen that can be transformed into an open kitchen concept, go ahead and do the full make-over, this is sound advice from most GTA Realtors I've spoken too. For biggest ROI, simple is better. Think in-expensive modern touches, recessed lighting, updated pulls, a solid surface marble, granite, or quartz countertops and tile flooring.
Home painting can be an inexpensive investment for your home. It all come down to colours. If your going with bold colours, make sure to keep the same theme fairly fixed throughout the entire home. Gentle colours are always a safe bet. Remember, you can always gently highlight with baseboards or crown moulding. Because crown moulding is rarely in the daily path of wear and tear, it's fun to use satin or pearl finishes. It's adds a beautiful shine and lustre to any room. If you want a little more pizzaz think 'accent walls'. Accent walls can be as bold as you'd like. Have fun, be creative and try to tie those deeper more luxurious colours into the furnishings and fixturing of the room.
Your house never gets another chance to make a good first impression. Ugly and overgrown shrubbery and a patchy lawns and yards make people assume the inside of your house looks just as bad as the outside. Have a look around the neighbourhood to see what others are doing well. If your really struggling with ideas call in a professional landscaper.
