Top 16 “Quick Picks” for Adding Value to Your Home (Part 2)

Get ready for another eight ideas to spark your Do-It-Yourself imagination with the second part of our top 16 list of “Quick Picks” for adding value to your Edmond, Oklahoma home.

  1. Finish the basement.  Take that unused, un-inviting space and transform it with a bar area, seating, and welcoming décor.
  2. Add a deck.
  3. Do a major bath remodel.  Turn that master bath into an oasis, adding his and hers sinks, separate shower stall, and a relaxing garden tub.
  4. Paint.  Inside or outside.  It is the least expensive, greatest bang-for-your buck improvement you can do.
  5. Renovate the attic.  Of course you have to have the space to start with, and if so, add some windows and turn that unused space into a small bedroom suite.
  6. Build up.  Add a second floor and double the living space of your ranch style home.
  7. Add a bath.  No one ever said “This house has too many bathrooms.”
  8. New roof.  Keeps the inside dry and looks great to potential buyers from the street.
