When your little one is the light of your eye, you want to give him the best room possible. However, there are renovations that can make your home more sellable, and there are some that can actually detract from your home's value. Choosing your kid's room renovations carefully can keep you from losing money when you are trying to sell your home.
Lighting “ Adding interesting, energy efficient recessed lighting, pendant lamps, track lighting, and skylights always boosts the value of any room. Many modern light fixtures look great, but be careful in your selections. If you are looking to sell your home soon, too modern or too personal choices can make some buyers stick up their nose.
Paint Choices “ Paint is an easy way to customize any room for a child. The color choices are endless! Instead of painting every wall a bright or bold color, try making one wall the feature wall, and paint the other walls a lighter version of the color or a neutral color. If you don't, bold color schemes will be too much for most buyers, and you will have to repaint the whole room if you are planning to sell your home soon.
Storage- Families can never get enough storage, and built-in storage features are one item that will never be snubbed. Carefully select the area of the room that you will be building the storage into. Look for unused areas of the room like below windows or on walls that doors open into. Oddly shaped rooms may also have areas that would otherwise be unusable, but they can be made into storage. Be sure that your built-in storage features are easy to put things into and coordinate with the color scheme of the room.
Closets “ Custom closet systems or semi-custom systems help to organize an area that often gets overstuffed with random stuff. Adding extra shelves, bins, shoe racks, and hanging rods will help even the messiest kids get organized, and that is worth every penny. To appeal to the pickiest buyers, stay away from wire shelves and racks and look for wooden shelving systems. If you can't afford it, with a few sheets of wood, some screws, a little paint, you can build your own custom closet system.
Rugs “ Kids rooms are messy, and carpets show it quickly! Although carpeting is comfortable, hard floors are easier to clean and have better resale value. Instead of carpeting, put in nice washable area rugs. These are available in lots of colors and themes. Don't choose a main floor rug that is tiny. Be sure to get one that will extend at least two foot on both sides of the bed, if it doesn't cover the majority of the room. Smaller rugs can be used throughout the room to set up centers or feature areas.
