Update Your Hardware
One of the best bang-for-your-buck upgrades you can do for your home is to simply update your door hardware. Not only is this project cost-effective, but its level of effort is also relatively low – the hardest part will be choosing your hardware from the hundreds of options we have!
Swapping out your old doorknobs and hinges is a great way to add a little updated touch without breaking your budget. It’ll make your home look more modern and polished, and it will increase functionality while adding some extra security.
If you’re looking to sell in the near future, walk through your home with the mindset of a homebuyer. Would you want to buy a home with outdated or rusty doorknobs and hinges? If the homeowner doesn’t care enough to take care of simple things they use every day, what else did they neglect? It’s a small detail that will go a long way in increasing appeal to potential buyers.
Emtek Door Hardware is one of our top brands, and for good reason! Emtek offers a wide selection of high-quality doorknobs, hinges, and other hardware to suit any style and boost your property’s value. Stop by one of our four convenient locations to discover everything Emtek has to offer – from function to finish to style, we’ve got you covered!
Finish Your Basement
Looking for a more substantial project to add value to your home? One of the highest return on investment home projects you can do is right under your feet!
Finishing your basement is great for two reasons. First, it’ll almost instantly increase the value of your home. Second, you’ll have significantly more living space for you and your family to enjoy for years to come.
Of course, finishing your basement is a big project and might not be friendly to every budget, but many homeowners have seen upwards of a 70% return on their investment on average, with the increase in their home’s value.
If your looking for inspiration for your basement remodel, think shiplap. If it’s good enough for Joanna Gaines, it’s good enough for your basement! Something as seemingly simple as adding quality mouldings is enough to drastically change the space and add value to any home.
Next Day Moulding Doors & Stairs has a wide variety of shiplap and other moulding profiles in-stock and ready to make your project quick and easy. Check out some of the mouldings and boards in-person at one of our four convenient locations in the Boston area.
Build a Home Office
It goes without saying that the pandemic completely changed the way we work. Today, a whopping 58% of Americans work from home at least one day a week. That means that most homeowners and home buyers are looking for a nice, quiet, private spot to work remotely, that doesn’t even require a commute.
By adding glass doors, updating mouldings and adding wall paneling, you can create a brand-new home office that’ll increase the value of your property by upwards of 10% and make it even more appealing for when you’re ready to sell.
Boost Your Home’s Value With The Right Projects
Everyone wants their hard work to pay off. Now, when you complete your next home project, you can take the phrase “pay off” quite literally!
By updating your home’s hardware, finishing your basement, and adding a home office, you can increase the value of your home and make it more attractive to potential buyers. And even if you don’t want to sell your house any time soon, your family will be able to enjoy these upgrades for years to come.
