When you are building with new construction, you are tasked with making a lot of important and expensive decisions. If you’re planning to customize your home, you have to factor in the cost of upgrades as well as the value that you will be able to reap if/when you do ultimately sell your home.
While improving the value of your home is surely important, it is also important that any changes and addition you do make actually improve the value of living in the home itself.
So, if you’re thinking about making additions to your home, here are some home construction choices that are totally worth it!
The kitchen is the heart of your home and it’s one of the most common reasons for new home construction for a lot of great reasons. If you are looking to sell your home in the near future, upgrading your kitchen is a fantastic way to add value to your home.
Primary improvements and renovations made to kitchens include upgrading appliances, installing new countertops, installing new cabinets, and upgrading the windows around the kitchen.
Adding a foot or two of height in your basement can turn it from feeling like a cramped little cave into a spacious place that you want to spend your time in. This is especially worth it if you plan on fully finishing your basement to turn it into a guest room, an entertainment room, or something else that you plan on using regularly.
Improving your master bath
Improving and upgrading your master bath is one of the best decisions you can make when it comes to making improvements that will make living in your home more pleasurable. Major upgrades include expanding and improving the shower and/or tub area, upgrading countertops, including plumbing, and improving natural light and window space. Natural light and window area not only improve the look and feel of a bathroom, it also keeps it dry and fights of mold and other water damage.
Whether one of your kids is about to add another driver to the household, or you’re simply lacking for storage space, expanding your garage can be a great way to turn that messy, seldom used area into a real extension to your home.
People often expand their garages to not only make room for another car or more cardboard boxes filled with holiday lights, people often use additional garage space for a home gym, a home studio, or something else that is quite useful and fun!
More natural lighting
One great way to add room to your house without actually adding room is by adding more natural lighting by way of bigger windows and moonlights. Natural light is a great way to upgrade your home without doing much at all. Just make sure to install high-quality windows that keep sound out and heat (or cold) in, depending on the season.
Hopefully this quick breakdown has helped you in your decision-making process. Now, it’s time to reach out to your favorite local contractor and start making plans.
