If you’re considering upgrading your home or backyard, keep in mind that some upgrades can increase the future resale value of your property. Of course, you want your family to benefit from and appreciate the upgrade, but it never hurts to plan for the future. However, some homeowners have trouble choosing a hardscaping project to enhance their property. Let’s dive into the different hardscaping projects and how they can improve your property value.
Patios & Decks
A professionally installed patio or deck extends your living space into the outdoors and can significantly increase your home’s value. Paver patios give potential buyers the illusion of more square feet in the house. No matter the size of your patio, adding stone is a great way to create a durable, smooth surface that will last for years. Installing a deck or patio is also great if you live in a warmer climate because you can spend more time outdoors, enjoying the beautiful weather. Decks provide the additional space needed when entertaining guests. Any party can be improved by moving it from inside the house to your backyard.
Your driveway is the first thing people notice when they visit your home. Driveways are easy to clean and maintain, making a house look more attractive to potential buyers.
Avoid standard gravel or concrete; instead, choose a type of stone or brick that blends with your home. Consider the look of pebbles, cobblestone, pavers, or even colored stones. These materials give you the benefit of a more natural look while providing the same functions as a traditional driveway.
Outdoor kitchens are a popular trend for homeowners who love to throw outdoor gatherings. They allow you to entertain larger numbers than an indoor kitchen may allow. You can include elements such as barbecues, fire pits, built-in seating, and refrigeration to create a functional and fun outdoor kitchen. However, it is important to ensure your outdoor kitchen area is practical and attractive. You want to enhance your home’s functionality while minimizing unnecessary journeys back and forth.
Another great option when looking to increase your property value is to add outdoor lights to your landscape. First off, they can serve multiple purposes. Outdoor lights can keep your house safe by deterring burglars and preventing slips and falls in the dark. And they enhance your curb appeal, making your home the talk of the neighborhood.
