Every decision a homeowner makes has to take two things into consideration: do I like this, and will the person who one day buys the house from me like this?
This is a strong deterrent against painting your walls seafoam green, but the opportunity to improve your home value is also a great reason to have Superior Stone & Cabinet upgrade your kitchen and bathroom.
In this blog, we’ll review the top things you can do as a homeowner to improve your home’s long-term value while simultaneously creating something you and your family will enjoy in the present.
Start in the kitchen
Most experts agree that the kitchen is the place to start when you’re looking to add value to your home. In hot seller’s markets—like the one here in Phoenix—the upgrade can easily pay for itself in a rise in your home’s value.
Why is the kitchen the best place to make changes?
It’s partially because kitchen design trends have changed so much since the early-to-mid 90s. Granite and quartz countertops have become popular, backsplash tile is in, cabinets have gone generally toward new colors and options, and linoleum is getting swapped out for tile or laminate.
What kind of upgrades should you make?
If nothing else, focus on counters and cabinets. These are the highly visible parts of your kitchen, and improvements here will instantly give your home more “pop” when it’s being shown off to prospective buyers.
You’ll have some decisions to make. What type of countertop? Should you add cabinet organization? Of course, the design and remodeling experts at Superior Stone & Cabinet can help. More on that in a second.
Have the funds for something bigger? You can consider opening up your kitchen, which is a popular trend at the moment and makes your home feel more roomy and welcoming.
Move on to the master bathroom
Most homes have “master” bathroom located off the main bedroom. Remodel this next. Prospective buyers will want a stunning master bathroom that they can use and admire on a daily basis.
Tackle that shower project
Superior Stone & Cabinet can help you create the perfect shower for your home. We have the right materials in our 60,000 SQ/FT warehouse and showroom for any shower design, including a wide variety of shower tile.
Creating a modern shower with upgraded faucets and fixtures can really pay off when you go to put your home on the market. This is something realtors and buyers are looking for in used homes.
Upgrade your bathroom counters and cabinets
Bathroom counters and cabinets can significantly increase the visual appeal of your bathroom, and the corresponding value of your home.
Keep up with the arms race
You may not think you need upgrades to improve your home value. After all, home prices are going up based on your location here in the Valley.
Here’s what you have to think about, though: even in a seller’s market, homeowners are in an arms race against their neighbors and people many blocks away. If your house is outdated compared to other houses in your price range, you’re going to be in a tough spot.
By investing in your home value today, you can ensure that—when you go to sell your home in the future—you’ll get the most out of it.
