4 Home Improvements That Are Overlooked

Interior designing is really great for making your house look the way you want it to and feel like home.Most people immediately update their homes by adding a fresh coat of paint, cleaning the carpets or just installing new window treatments.

These 6 improvements can immediately update your home and add value.

1.Update your kitchen appliances
This is the most sought after room in your home. If your kitchen appliances are more than 3-5 years old consider updating them. A newer model and more features can help improve the quality of your kitchen. For top of the line appliances consider stainless steel and professional series lines.


2. Flooring is usually an omitted upgrade
Flooring should be more resilient and long lasting, the higher the upgrade is, but the higher return is on investment (ROI). Consider wood, tile and natural stone for flooring options to add value to your home.


3. Upgrade plumbing fixtures in kitchen and bathrooms
If you have standard grade fixtures, such as chrome finish, opt for higher end finishes and materials. Brushed nickel, antique copper and brass fixtures are relatively inexpensive to replace. At kitchen sinks choose plumbing fixture collections that offer matching faucet, control, and sink sprayer. Similarly in bathrooms, choose bathtub/shower/and sink controls that coordinate for a unified look throughout your home.  And always choose a thermostatic shower faucet for optimal safety and ease of use.


4. Bedrooms should feel like a retreat
Recessed lighting with dimmers, lighting wall sconces help to create an ambiance which has a high value in appeal and for the value of your home. Upgrade master bathroom with spa-like features, since master bathroom is the part of master bedroom.
