Renovations are a great way to transform tired rooms and levels, as well as to add value to the home if you’re planning to sell at any point in the future. As one of Central Alberta’s top builders and renovation teams, Abbey Platinum Master Built is proud to partner with Albertans to help families like you create the perfect space for their needs, one project time. If you’re in the early stages of planning a renovation and are wondering what some of the best areas to focus on for maximum return value are, below are a few ideas to keep in mind. Master Bedroom/Ensuite Bathrooms The master bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the home and serves as our private oasis to relax in. Opening up the master to give yourself more room to breathe, enhancing your wardrobe (i.e. creating a walk-in closet), and redoing your lighting can all be fantastic ways to create a more welcoming and functional space for you to enjoy on a daily basis. When it comes to ensuite bathrooms, it’s just as important to make sure your master bath is stylish, comfortable, and has a layout that fits your daily routine (no more fighting over the sink in the morning!). If your home doesn’t currently feature an ensuite bath, it may be something you want to consider as a value-added renovation, especially if you ever plan to sell. Kitchens Kitchens are by far one of the most popular and in-demand renovation options, and for good reason. Though we may not always realize it, so much of our lives are centered around the kitchen. From preparing delicious meals to serving as a home base for family meetings, an entertainment hub, and so much more, there’s not much that escapes the kitchen! Creating a space that’s functional for your family, as well as modernized for safety and comfort is essential, and adds plenty of value to your property overall. Finishing the Basement Looking for an easy way to double your usable square footage and instantly increase your curb appeal? Finished basements are a fantastic way to get the most out of your home. From home offices (more on that below), gyms, theatres, and flex areas, creating a comfortable space that serves your needs is the perfect renovation to maximize your value and give everyone the space they need to feel at home! Building a Home Office If you’re one of the many Albertans that has found themselves making a more permanent shift to the WFH lifestyle, creating a dedicated home office is a fantastic way to make the most out of unused spaces. From repurposing spare bedrooms once the kids move out to finally giving that unused den a purpose, a home office can be a stylish and highly functional addition to any home. Energy-Efficient Updates Tired of seeing your energy bill climb month after month during the colder seasons? If your home has older windows and doors, it may be time to consider making some significant upgrades to your building envelope (what keeps the outside elements out). Replacing insulation, windows, doors, and taking a closer look at your foundation are all essential parts of extending the life of your home and ensuring everyone is as comfortable as possible all year round.
