Spring is the perfect time in NH for home improvement projects.  Whether you’re planning to list your home on the market or make updates for yourself, focusing on certain areas of your home can improve the value of your home.  For instance, kitchen remodels will provide a higher rate of return, then replacing bedroom flooring.  This article highlights are few of the areas that will put money back into your pocket.


Whether your kitchen requires a small remodel or a major facelift, kitchens are the number one area in the home to increase your home’s value.  Depending on the area of focus, a kitchen remodel can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000.  The cost depends on the update.  Perhaps a change of appliances and a few coats of paint bring the new, modern look that is needed; you’re cost will be less than a total overhaul.  Flooring, counters, and cabinets are all expensive NH home improvements. However, your return will double. 

Often, potential home buyers will make the final decision based on the condition of the kitchen.  Due to the expense of an upgrade, many people look for a move in ready home. 


Another important area of the home is the bathroom.  Second to the kitchen, homeowners look at bathrooms.  A less expensive remodel, but equally important, your bathrooms can make or break a home sale.  With the incorporation of stylish tile, soaking tubs, and modern storage space, you will ensure an increase in your home’s value.

Exterior Improvements

If you’ve never heard of curb appeal, it’s time to call Corriveau Contracting.  Your home’s appearance is one of the most important elements of the value it holds.  Old siding, chipping trim paint, overgrown and unkempt landscaping are all factors that can work against your ultimate goal.  With the help of a contractor, updates can be made at a reasonable cost.  Providing your home a clean, fresh look will have neighbors sending compliments.

Outdoor Addition

With the addition of a deck or patio, you can add multiple levels of value to your home.  For example, a deck is an excellent addition when it comes to gatherings with family and friends.  The value of adding the capability to provide a gathering space is priceless. 

On the other hand, if you were to have your home appraised, the retail value would also increase.  With the use of simple wood, you could recoup around 90% of your investment.  However, with more innovative products, like Trex, you can increase your return rate even more. Eye-appeal with the use of planters, decorative lighting, and stylish furniture will further help to make your guest feel more at home while catching the eye of potential home buyers.
