Five Remodeling Projects That Add Value to Your Home
Home remodeling projects are an excellent way to add value to your home. There’s more than just monetary value to consider—a remodel can increase appeal to buyers and boost your higher home value if you’re preparing to sell. If you’re not selling your home, you will still enjoy the additional convenience, livability, and pride that a remodel offers.

1. Kitchen Remodeling Projects
Regardless of whether major or minor, kitchen home improvement projects always increase the value of your home. You can expect to recoup between 53% and 72% of the cost of a kitchen remodel (according to Remodeling Magazine), depending on where you live, the renovation type, and the materials used.
Examples of minor kitchen upgrades:
- Increased storage space
- New backsplash
- Refinished cabinets
- Updated light fixtures
- Upgraded faucets
Examples of major renovations:
- Additional square footage
- Additional space for seating, dining, storage, or cooking
- Additional windows or doors
- High-end appliances
- New cabinets and countertops
- Wood, laminate, or tile flooring
It’s easy to get caught up in the excitement and go over budget, particularly in a kitchen upgrade or remodel. Watch your budget and make sure the changes are relevant to the rest of the property.
2. Bathroom Upgrades
Remodeling a bathroom is another way to make your home more appealing to potential buyers and increase its value. Some of the most popular projects include:
- New sinks, tubs, showers, or toilets
- Painting or re-tiling
- Upgraded lighting
- Upgraded mirror or vanity
If you have room in your budget, adding a bathroom (or half-bath) can make your home a hot commodity in today’s real estate market. Even if you aren’t planning to sell right away, you’ll appreciate that extra bathroom more than you might expect.
3. Add Energy-Efficient Extras
Appliances and energy-efficient building materials do more than just increase the value of your home—they reduce environmental impact and save money on energy costs. Think about projects like these:
- Energy Star appliances
- Replace battered steel entry doors
- Replace old windows
- Smart thermostat
- Solar panels
- Upgrade insulation
4. Build an Outdoor Oasis
Increase your home’s value with an outdoor project to add more function and accessibility. Popular projects include:
- Brick or stone patio
- Composite or wood deck
- Replace broken pavers or walkways
- Upgrade storage sheds
5. Transform Unused Space
If your home has unfinished space, such as a bonus room, attic, or basement, turn it into something fun or functional, such as:
- Guest bedroom
- Home gym or office
- Library or study
- Playroom or game room
