Before you ever start an apartment improvement project, you will want to consider whether it will be increasing the value of your apartment. It’s always important to plan on improving your living space to increase comfort, but when it comes time to sell or sub-let, you want to make sure it’s to your benefit financially, too.
Here are some home improvement ideas for increasing the value of your apartment:
New Paint Job
If the kitchen needs too much work, the value of your apartment will decrease. Consider the costs of the materials you are planning to use before you start, and make sure that your choices make sense. If you live in an area where property values won’t allow you to recover your investment, make sure you take that into consideration. A coat of paint may do the trick, or you may be able to give your kitchen a whole new look with a deep cleaning of the cabinets and appliances, and some new cabinet and drawer hardware, for example.
Open Floor Plan
Opening up any area of your living space that feels dark or cramped can go a long way towards creating a more attractive living space. Removing walls to create a more open floor plan will bring both space and light into play, but this might not be an option for you as an apartment-dweller. If you do want to pursue this project, a professional renovation company can help you plan upgrades through their knowledge of structural integrity.
A home office is a great asset and is pretty valuable to have these days, so make sure your spaces are outfitted with that in mind. Adding grounded outlets, data ports, and extra phone lines would be very attractive to anyone who works remotely.
