4 Home Upgrade Ideas for Your 2023 Home Improvement Plan

Did you know that around 50% of US homes were built before 1980?

At over 40 years old, many of these homes are ready for a home upgrade and renovation. If you live in one of these homes, you likely understand what we’re talking about.

But it can be hard to know where to start when putting together a home improvement plan. From deciding between the many options for flooring, putting together a home improvement budget, and deciding on what interior and exterior renovations should take priority, it can be overwhelming.

In this post, we’ll go over some of the key things you should consider for your home improvement plan.

1. Build an Addition

As your family grows and changes, sometimes your home needs to adjust with you. The small cottage you bought three years ago may not be big enough for your family anymore.

But with the cost of homes so high, it can feel like you’re stuck. Instead of trying to find a new home, consider expanding your current home.

Additions give you the opportunity to add in the spaces you want most while fixing the existing ones that just aren’t working for you anymore.

2. Paint

It’s amazing how a fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into a home. If you’re feeling tired of the same old look in your house painting even one wall, a new, fun color can give the space a different feel.

This is also a good time to repaint the exterior of your home as well. Give your house a new start with this upgrade.

3. Additional Storage

A lot of the time, as the years go by, you’ll wind up with more and more stuff but nowhere to put it all. When planning your upgrades be sure to include additional storage space in the plans.

Storage space is a surprisingly easy upgrade to fit into the smaller or weirdly shaped nooks and crannies of your home, like under the stairs.

4. Update your Countertops

Countertops are frequently noticed and commented on when buying a home. But after moving in, they can sometimes fade into the background and just become a part of your kitchen or bathroom.

However, even when you don’t notice them, they still play a big part in the overall look of a room. Updating them can have a large impact on the feel of that room.

The type of material you choose for your new countertops can help you to set a particular tone for the room. From elegant and clean to warm and homey, it’s up to you.

As you put together your home upgrade plan, be sure to consider these ideas. They can help you improve both the beauty and functionality of your home.
