Primary Room Upgrades that Increase Home Value
If you are hoping to add value to your home, making some upgrades to your primary/master/largest bedroom is a smart place to invest your home renovation dollars. Many homebuyers are currently looking for homes where the largest room in the home, the room they will be living in, feels like a place where they can retreat and get away from the hectic craziness that everyday life can sometimes become.
When performing any renovations on your home with a focus on building the fair market value it is always wise to do your homework on what is desirable in homes currently. You want to be careful not to fall into the trap of making the space overly personal to fit your specific dreams or too trendy.
When adding value, it is best to stick to a mindset of what will appeal to a large set of potential buyers. As well as styles that will last the test of time and not be dated when you hope to sell. Because a home is only worth what someone is willing to pay you for it.
Here are some great main bedroom renovations that increase value in homes
A majority of homebuyers include a walk-in closet in their bedroom on their list of wants in their dream home. Who doesn’t want plenty of space to easily store all of their clothes and other belongings?
In addition to having a sizeable closet is one that already has a quality organization system in place. If you walked into a home with a bedroom that had a large closet and a system for you to easily put everything in an easy-to-access place, wouldn’t you be ready to buy?
If you have the space including a second walk-in closet to accommodate couples purchasing homes is a great investment.
Today newer homes with more than one bedroom would not think of building the main bedroom without its own private bathroom. It is standard for newer homes to have a primary suite.
If you are living in an older home with a primary room that does not have a private bathroom attached it could be the best renovation choice to make. As long as the current plumbing system can allow for it, as well as the structure of the home.
Some buyers pass on properties if the home does not have a private bath for the main bedroom.
Private Deck or Balcony
Since the beginning of the pandemic more and more home buyers are looking for extra ways to enjoy outdoor spaces and fresh air in their own homes. There were times when the only way to get some time outside in some areas was in the space you held on your property. As more and more people continue to be grateful for outdoor spaces having more ways to enjoy them is more desirable.
What is more luxurious than having your own private space to enjoy some fresh air in your own way?
If you do not have the ability to add a private balcony, deck, or patio even just the addition of large picture windows is a plus in a master bedroom.
