Did you know that home remodeling should be done every 15 to 20 years? When was the last time you modified your home?
The warm weather is finally here and you know what that means: it’s time for every Phoenix homeowner to start making some serious home upgrades. But what are you going to do?
We’re here to talk about a few home renovations that you can start this summer. Read on to learn more.
1. Minor or Major Bathroom Remodel
Whether you’re improving your home for yourself or you’re trying to make improvements so you can sell, a bathroom remodel is one of your best options! When people are looking for new homes, the bathroom is one of the first places that they look.
So what modifications should you make for a great bathroom remodel? Both minor and major renovation can be effective, so just be mindful of your budget.
Think of things that would improve your quality of life. For example, perhaps you want to trade your standing shower for a soaking tub. Maybe it’s time to upgrade all of your old plumbing to make it more environmentally friendly.
A great way to upgrade a bathroom to add property value is to add more storage. Could you fit some overhead cabinets?
2. Solar Panels
Solar panels are a large investment, but they’re worth it.
When you get solar panels in 2022, you’ll still qualify for the solar tax credit (meaning that you’ll end up saving money overall). You may lower your monthly electricity bills or even get money back every month.
Solar panels help you shrink your household’s carbon footprint, so when you buy them, you’re also doing something good for the environment. Bonus: they’ll add value to your home, so even if you plan on selling within the next few years, they’re worth it.
3. Attic or Basement Conversion
Do you have an extra room taking up space and collecting dust? Time to convert it into something more practical.
For most people, the empty rooms are basements or attics. If you’re using these rooms for storage, why not make some home updates instead?
Basements make fantastic game rooms, playrooms, and home bars. You could also convert your basement into a small studio apartment for older children or guests (or even potential renters).
Attics make fantastic bedrooms, yoga rooms, and reading rooms!
What will you do with your extra space in your Phoenix home?
4. Patio Remodel
So what if your home’s interior is already picture-perfect? Why not make some outdoor home upgrades? Your outdoor space is just as important as your indoor space, and you can make it cozier with a quick patio remodel.
Our best recommendation for remodeling your patio is to treat it as an indoor room. Use furniture that you’d love to have in your living room (as long as it’s durable enough for your local climate).
By upgrading your patio, you’ll create a whole new space where you can relax or hang out with friends.
