Did you know experts say you should set aside at least one percent of the purchase price of your house each year for home improvement projects or repairs? That means, if your house cost $400,000, you should budget $4,000 annually for maintenance and improvements. Of course, this amount can depend on the condition of your home and when you last had a remodel or made improvements.
In talking to some of our clients, we’ve learned that every Milwaukee family is different in terms of what they want and need when it comes to home improvement projects. Some people assume that a remodel project must always be a very large-scale project, and they should only even think about addressing problematic areas of their home if they’re ready to commit to a major expense and a major time frame for the work to be completed, but this isn’t always the case.
Here are three ways for you to give your home a facelift on a smaller scale, in a shorter time…
- Plan a partial bathroom renovation for one (or all) of the bathrooms in your home. You can give your bathroom a great facelift by simply changing out cabinetry, countertops, fixtures, or amenities.
- Boost your home’s curb appeal and energy efficiency with new windows. If your window frames are in good shape, consider a pocket replacement to change our your existing window for a more energy efficient glass window.
- Make your home more welcoming by replacing your exterior and/or interior doors. With so many beautiful, durable, and energy efficient options, the impact will be long-lasting in a short amount of time.
Many times Wisconsin homeowners don’t stop to ponder what a simple “facelift” could do for their home. A smaller remodel, like updating fixtures or surfaces in a bathroom, can make a world of difference in your space and be completed easily in a short time.
