Smart Home Improvements

Should I update my kitchen or bathrooms? Or redo my floors?

It depends if you’re looking for a long term upgrade or planning on selling in the near future.  Although kitchens have become the most central room in the house the styling trends are changing about every 5 years, so if you’re planning on selling in the next 5 years then your kitchen will most likely still be in fashion when you decide to sell. 

When it comes to the biggest bang for your buck, nothing beats painting. Not far behind is redoing floors, but I would recommend waiting until shortly before you sell to do this unless you’re planning on staying put for a while and want to take advantage of a totally different floor stain.

Redoing bathrooms is a lot less costly than redoing a kitchen and the average buyer is less discerning when looking at bathrooms than a kitchen.  A new vanity, mirror and paint can transform a bathroom. Other easy upgrade options are changing vanity countertops to granite or marble if your vanities are still in good shape, and replacing vanity hardware.

Another great idea for freshening up your home is replacing the hardware on your doors, especially if they are worn.
