What should I be looking for? Consider what home improvement projects you’d like to accomplish this year in your home. If you’re not sure where to start below is a list of the top improvement projects that provide the most return on investment.

1. Front Door replacement – this is a relatively cheap project but can do wonders for increasing energy efficiency and enhancing curb appeal!
2. Siding replacement – this also increases energy efficiency and provides for a whole new and clean look to your home.
3. Kitchen remodel – there is a lot of room on this one. You can just update fixtures or you can update all the cabinetry, flooring, appliances, and more.
4. Garage Door replacement – this gives a great new look to your garage for a relatively small cost and it will last a long time!
5. Deck addition – entertaining outside can greatly expand your home’s living space. A deck lasts for years for a relatively small budget. Bedroom addition – turn the attic or den into a bedroom by simply adding a closet and you’ll significantly increase the value of your home.
6. Window replacement – One of the biggest ways to improve upon your home’s energy efficiency! You’ll save money on heating and cooling and s your house will look great !Bathroom remodel – like a kitchen remodel this can be big or small by just updating fixtures or making your bathroom into a whole new room!
7. Add storage – older houses usually feature small closets and limited storage space. Adding closets and storage solutions is an inexpensive solution that really helps to sell a home
8. Update the nitty gritty! From plumbing, heating, electrical, sewer, or the roof -these things need to be done to keep the house safe and sound. You’ll be happy you made the investment before one of them has a problem.

Even if you’re not interested in a project right now, stopping by Home Show can inspire you for the future! Walk around your home and think about what you dream you could change . Don’t forget you can use the equity in your home to fund those improvements happen!
