A lot of us often shy away from the idea of home improvements and upgrades simply because they can feel a bit heavy on the pocket. But what we don’t realize is that even some minor remodeling projects around the house, like replacing the front door, for instance, can go a long way in boosting the property’s value.
For example, with new doors and windows, you can gain back at least 70 to 90 percent of what you spend. And with some door options that add to the curb appeal of the house, you may get even more than what you invest.
But in case you’re feeling clueless, here’s what you should focus on.
Work on The Curb Appeal
Think of the first thing you notice in a house. It’s probably the exterior, right? This is why it’s referred to as the curb appeal of a house. It’s what a buyer will notice before they even step inside.
So, from upgrading the entry doors to installing modern factory-style steel windows and new patio doors—you can do several things to boost the curb appeal. You can also give the house a new coat of paint!
But if you’ve got a limited budget, we suggest focusing on the doors and windows—especially the front door. Because not only is it great for first impressions, but also because the right iron doors and steel windows can add character to the interior space as well.
Make It Appear Spacious
Another thing that most buyers look for is space. So naturally, homes that are or look more spacious sell well.
The idea isn’t exactly to create more space—because really, we’re not suggesting you build extra rooms. What we propose is that you make changes to the existing interior space to give it the illusion of being spacious.
You can do this by choosing vertical designs or by keeping a neutral color palette to blend walls and flooring. Another thing we suggest is installing steel and glass doors and large steel windows to let in plenty of light. Natural light itself can make a space look bigger.
You can also reduce some of the concrete clutter and install steel and glass room dividers, bi-fold doors, and sliding doors to make family rooms more spacious.
Focus on The Kitchen and Bathrooms
You’ve probably heard this from real estate agents, but we’ll reiterate anyway—no one’s selling houses in the housing market; everyone’s selling kitchens and bathrooms.
That’s right. You could have the most aesthetically pleasing house with a swimming pool and modern iron doors lining the interior, but if you haven’t paid attention to the kitchen and bathrooms, you’re in for a tough time in the market.
You don’t have to go all out, but we do suggest making improvements here and there. For example, install a new pantry door, paint the kitchen cabinets, add a kitchen island, and for the bathroom, you can install a new shower door and perhaps a large steel window to brighten up the space.
If you’re not sure where to start with your home upgrades, we suggest starting with the doors and windows—that’ll help you set a design tone for other elements as well.
And needless to say, you need to go with modern iron and steel doors instead of bulky wooden ones. We have an exclusive collection at Pinky’s Iron Doors that you can check out. From exterior doors to interior doors, we have something for every space in your house.
