It’s no secret that we consider our home to be a sacred place that is designed not only to protect us from the outer elements, but it also serves as an emotional sanctuary, and it is only natural that we spend most of our time there. That is why everyone is always searching for the best way of improving their home, and making their life a bit more comfortable and not to mention, a lot more convenient. It is surprising to find out how some small changes can improve our overall satisfaction with our homes, but those changes must be carefully chosen, as most of us are limited by our time and our wallets.

No matter what you decide is best for you, any home investment project is a good idea, as it will not only increase the overall value of the property, but will make your life a whole lot easier.

1. The magic in your attic

Many houses have large attics, and those end up being used only as a place where you can store things you are not ready to throw away yet. If your house is among one of those, you are in luck, as you can easily turn one of those spacious attics into a spacious room, all for yourself, and finally have that gaming place you’ve always wanted. Of course, every house needs a place where you can put things you don’t need, so you can place a few shelves and make it into a well-designed storage room where you can place even more things, and de-clutter the rest of your house. If you plan on making it into an office space, a study or an entertainment room, then you will need to invest into some proper insulation, and make sure that you can actually live in it, and not freeze to death during the winter. With a fresh coat of paint, some furniture you can buy online, and a few decorative pictures, you can turn it into anything you want. Unlike basements, attics are a much better investment, and they are usually more open, spacious, and can let more sunlight in, which is ideal if you live in an area with a moderate climate.

2. Small things that matter

There are many things that you can do in order

to make your life easier around the house, and you only need to have a bit more money in your pocket. You can buy a bigger TV, and this is especially good if you like watching movies, and if you buy a good blu-ray player with it – even better. With some nice set of speakers, you can easily turn a boring living room into a real entertainment center where you can spend some quality time with your friends. The living room is usually a very important room, and modern families spend a lot of their time there, so you can install an AC to make it even more comfortable. Depending on the place you’re living in, you might want to invest into central air conditioning, which can heat and cool your whole house, or you can have a split system installed, or a window unit. The prices of all these systems vary, so you can decide and choose the one that suits you the most. Other than that, replacing some furniture around the house, or buying a new dishwasher are always good things to do, or think about buying a new picture or two to place somewhere around the house.

3. Bathroom, your personal oasis

The bathroom is quite an important room in any house, and you can easily tell a lot about a person only by visiting their bathroom, and because of this, you must make it a place where you can enjoy. If you take into account that we spend about a year and a half of our lives there, on average, then you realize why it is crucial that you transform it into something more. Why not change the color of the walls, or replace that old shower curtain? Small things like that can easily improve the overall look of your bathroom and the property value of your home. Buy a pair of waterproof speakers, so you can have your own personal concert while showering. Most of the things in an average bathroom can be refurbished, but if there are some broken tiles, make sure that you replace them. Leaky faucets are not only annoying, but can also be dangerous. If you like having long showers, think about having a tankless water heater that can provide you with an endless supply of hot water.

    Good tip about the attic. A lot of people only see it as storage and don’t see what a few sheets of sheetrock could do.

    As usual, excellent tips, Ivan.

    It’s hard to have a home that isn’t a sanctuary – believe me, such a home isn’t worth the name in the first place. It is also difficult (sometimes) getting the perfect mix that would ensure that you either don’t overdo or under do anything.

    I appreciate your tips!

    Always,

  8. Hi Ivan,
    I think you are right in that your how your home can contribute to your overall wellbeing. Homes, as you said, is a sacred place for many and many people don’t have a nice place to go back to, because they made it that way. They don’t keep their house clean, and have a lot of things that does not matter personally to them. Fill your house will love and entertainment. You are right that a good entertainment system can turn a boring living room into a great place to be, and even bring your lady friends. Good post!

    Regards,
    Lawrence

  9. I work in the home improvement industry, and I would agree. It’s amazing to see the impact that doing something in your home can have on my customers. Even just a fresh coat of paint or changing the colors of the floors. Once people do one thing, they look forward to the next project, even if they need to wait 6-12 months to save up.

  10. Great points here to help get your house sold. Another key item is to address any bad odors. These can often be found in old carpeting, especially if you have pets. And, yes, the roofing can be a big one, if it’s damaged or old. Many customers will deduct that from the price they offer and it’s a big cost.
