Compliments from family and friends are always a welcome pay off from home improvement projects. But nothing feels better than knowing that your home’s value has significantly increased as a result of your hard work. However, not all projects offer a reliable return on investment.

In this blog post, we have put together a list of home improvement projects that pay off the biggest in raising your home’s value.

Curb appeal

Poor or unattractive exterior creates a negative impression. Oftentimes, people tend to associate it with poor maintenance and irresponsible homeowners. Clean driveway and sidewalks, well-manicured lawn and trimmed landscaping not only look great; they can also add value to your home.


The most cost effective way to boost the value of your home is to paint it. Freshen up the interior by giving it a fresh coat of paint. Make sure, though, that you choose a neutral color. Red may be your favorite color, but it might be too bright or stimulating to others.


The flooring is often one of the most overlooked parts of the house. Ripping out beat-up carpet or refinishing scratched or scuffed up wood flooring will significantly improve the look of your space.

Hardwood floor is one of those features that appeals to just about everyone. It provides warmth and elegance that never goes out of style.  Wood floors are also incredibly durable. They are particularly known for retaining their character, structural integrity and beauty for decades; thus, making it a good investment. You can enjoy your investment for the years to come.


Kitchen is one of the most sought after rooms in the house. While updating kitchen appliances is a great idea, it is not always recoverable in terms of adding value.

The kitchen cabinets are a great place to start if you are looking to give your kitchen a facelift. Repainting the cabinet and replacing the hardware.  After all, the cabinets are often the first thing people notice when they walk into the kitchen.
