Starting 2017 by giving your home some love and care will definitely pay off in the long run.

8 Upgrades That Will Benefit Your Home This New Year

There are some upgrades you can make to your home that will yield the most benefit. And just to note – not all upgrades need to put a hefty dent in your wallet. Here are some ideas that will get you started:

  1. Change old windows, replace tired doors and siding. Doing these things will pay you back should you ever decide to sell. In the same vein, a new garage door and repaving the driveway will also add some pretty terrific curb appeal.

  2. Rejuvenating the kitchen with new cabinets and countertops will make the area bright, fresh and inviting for both family members and guests. If “new” isn’t in the budget, consider giving your cupboards a facelift with a bright coat or two of paint. Doing that can instantly change the look and feel of your kitchen.

  3. If a higher-end remodel or upgrade is in the cards, then redoing a bathroom or remodelling your basement would be a good choice, especially if you’re going to be staying in the house for a few years.

  4. Adding some square footage to your home if you’re able – like a sunroom – will not only add to your family’s enjoyment, but may be a nice selling feature should you ever put your home on the market.

  5. For a couple hundred dollars, you could replace or add crown molding. If you’re handy or have a family member who is, doing this will add instant charm to any room!

  6. If you’ve got stairs in your place, you might want to add some depth and colour by installing stair runners. Not only do they look great, they increase the safety of wood stairs.

  7. Simple accessory upgrades can do a lot for a home. There are a whole range of things that could give your bathroom a new look. Better Living offers many great items, like the Toilet Valet – a caddy that also has a place for magazines! Installing a mirror like Better Living’s Cosmo vanity mirror will make your bathroom both functional and stylish!

  8. More homeowners are opting for the eco-friendly way of doing things. With this in mind, installing an efficient, under-the-sink water filtration system will eliminate water bottles and make your water taste great!
