Increase the Resale Value Of Your HomeIncrease the Resale Value of Your Home

Tips from Holmes on Homes

Here are some home improvements that can really increase the resale value of your home.

Capitalize on Kitchen Space

The kitchen is the heart of the home and often the centre for entertaining. A warm paint job and new backsplash will improve your kitchen's appeal. Consider enlarging this popular space. A roomy kitchen will be attractive to families of any size. Indirect lighting mounted under the cupboards is an elegant touch.

Liven up the Bathroom

Buy expensive-looking hardware for taps and showers and get a sophisticated new look without cleaning out your wallet. Like in the kitchen, soft lighting and warm colours here can go a long way in increasing home value. Add vases and plants as design elements and make sure vanity mirrors are at an accessible height for every member of the family.

Install Thermal Windows

Keep cozy and cut costs by installing thermal windows. Perfect for Canadian winters, these windows trap heat inside, helping to reduce heating bills.

Build a Deck

Summer means barbecue season and with that comes the urge to kick back and relax outdoors. Building a backyard deck will increase the resale value of your home by providing an extra "room" outdoors, a perfect place to relax after a cold Canadian winter.
