How to Add Value to Home with Makeover | Interior Design

So there’s a lot of things that homeowners
can do to add value to their home without going crazy. Some of the basics include, we all know, granite
or stone counter tops. Why? Because they wear well over time. If you just try to save money and do a laminate
counter top, it never works out well in the long run. It will probably last, maybe a year so stone
counter tops are always a must. The other thing that’s really important is
to tone down the colors in your home. You want something that really speaks to who
you are, but at the same time you don’t need red in the bedroom. Red in the bedroom is never good. But red in the dining room, maybe above a
chair rail, and thinnk woodwork and molding. Molding is wood that you find around door
frames and also around windows. But guess what? You can also create architectural interest
in your home by adding molding, so sometimes a really simple chair rail that wraps around
a dining room or even a living room is really helpful. Another thing is hardwood floors. Hardwood floors are really easy to achieve
nowadays. I always like to go for something a little
bit more real, but it costs money. So if you want the same look for less, but
still want to add value then sometimes a pergo floor or a floating floor; which is a thinner
laminate that looks like wood; it floats right above any surface that you have on your floor. So, so far we have wood floors. We have stone counter tops in the bathroom
and in the kitchen. Colors that are on your walls that are neutral,
but still say who you are. Also pay attention to appliances. Appliances are really big. People will always look for what your appliances
say to them. When shopping for a home, even when you’re
changing out your financing for the house, they always look at the appliances, so kitchen
appliances, stainless steel bathroom fixtures. If you spend more money; and it doesn’t have
to be a ton; but a little bit more money in the kitchen and the bathroom. Then pay attention to the molding and the
floors and counter tops. You’re always going to do well and you’re
always going to add value to your home. Those are the basics. Everything else, just add on a personal whim. You don’t even have to spend a ton of money
and then you could change those out as you go on.

  1. A chair rail is molding that you apply horizontally at the height of where a standard chair would hit a wall. It was originally designed to keep chairs from scuffing up the walls. Now a days it's more of a decorative feature.

  2. Studies show that red is a high energy and can increase your appetite, which is why its used in a dining room or in restaurants. Soft colors would be a more relaxing choice for a bedroom.
