If you are looking into remodeling your house in the near future, you are probably already aware that interior and exterior home designs go through different phases. What you may not realize, though, is that it's not just the design aesthetic that can change throughout the years - the type of home remodeling that will add the most value can change as well.
While it is true almost any type of remodeling or renovating will be a great investment for your home, there are certain projects that will give you more bang for your buck. These more ideal investments also follow yearly trends, based off of different factors, like material cost and buyer interest. For 2018, the remodeling projects that will give you the most added value might just surprise you!
In 2018, the most financially beneficial remodeling project you can do will be to remodel your kitchen. The kitchen is the focal point of the home and, as such, is one of the most important parts. Potential buyers often say that the state of the kitchen is one of the biggest aspects of a home they look into before purchasing. Therefore, if you want to increase the value of your home before you sell it, a kitchen remodel should definitely be on your radar.
But this project has more value than just upping your home's resale potential. As the hub of all family activity, having a modern kitchen is essential to any successful family life. An outdated kitchen, without enough space or the proper appliances, can cause more harm than good over time. A growing family needs a kitchen that grows with it, and remodeling is one of the best ways to make this happen.
One of the other best value home remodeling projects for 2018 in Northern Virginia is replacing your home's siding. Siding is incredibly important, not only for the curb appeal of your house, but also for the safety and security new siding can provide for your family. Many people don't realize that siding greatly protects your home from the harsh weather elements of the area. In Northern Virginia, your home will be exposed to both freezing temperatures and the damaging UVA/UVB rays of the sun. Great siding is needed in order to protect the integrity and safety of your home.
Additionally, with the new advances in siding using today's technology, your siding will most likely need to be upgraded and replaced (if it hasn't been done within the last year). Not only does this new technology greatly reduce the energy costs associated with your home, it also has driven down the price of siding in general. New manufacturing techniques have led to a greater quality siding project for equal or lower cost than it has been in the past.
