Is the “new home” glow slowly fading away from your dream house? Home improvements can make you fall in love with it all over again. Simple changes like repainting walls or trim often make a huge difference. For larger remodel projects, a renovation or construction loan can provide funds for a much-needed refresh. Not sure in what areas your home can use a facelift?
Here are some improvements to consider to refresh your abode.
Invest in Smart Home Devices
Adding new technology can turn an older home into one that has a modern appeal. Advances in smart home devices have made homeownership more convenient. Upgrades such as intercom systems can turn communication into less of a hassle. Investing in a smart speaker system can make listening to music and watching movies even more enjoyable. Aside from convenience and entertainment improvements, home security is an area that you may want to pay close attention to while making upgrades. Installing smart security systems and cameras can boost confidence that you, your family, and your belongings are safe and sound.
Plan a Kitchen Redesign
The kitchen is one of the most heavily used areas in the home. For this reason, it’s likely going to need handiwork more often than other rooms. Refinishing existing countertops, cabinetry, and flooring can do wonders. A larger refresh may also be necessary eventually since kitchen design trends are always changing. We offer construction and renovation loan products that can bring your kitchen makeover vision to life. Our renovation and construction loans come with competitive rates and costs. Loans are processed, underwritten, and closed in-house which means you will always get a highly personalized level of service from our loan officers.
Give Your Outdoor Areas Some Love
Your first thoughts may be to improve rooms inside of your home, but the interior isn’t the only area that can benefit from a revamp. Building an oasis outside of your home can boost curb appeal and give your family an extra living space to have memories together. Take a look at your landscape, patios, outdoor kitchens, and BBQ areas. Can they use some florals, refinishing, upgrading, or simply a good deep cleaning? The best part about sprucing up outdoor areas is that it can provide an entirely new space to relax and entertain.
Make Eco-Friendly Upgrades
Finally, the many eco-friendly home improvements available are worth checking out. Besides doing your part to preserve the environment, making eco-friendly upgrades can have tax perks*. Green improvements like changing out old inefficient appliances can improve your energy bills as well.
Home improvements can completely transform a fixer-upper or older home. Even a relatively modern home that has lost the brand spanking new appeal can benefit from upgrades every so often. We’re happy to discuss construction and renovation loan options if you need funds for your next remodel.
