Some home improvement projects make a huge splash, and others simply don't. They can cut costs, improve appearance, make the house more comfortable or any combination of the three.
One project that can certainly have a great effect is sprucing up your yard for greater curb appeal, according to real estate listing company Trulia. This could help raise the resale value of your home, impress passersby, as well as, maybe, yourself. Try power washing your home and walkways, installing a new garage or front door or starting a landscaping project.
Another option that may also improve your home's energy efficiency is to install double-pane windows. The right ones will improve the look of your home, while helping you cut energy costs.
Some kitchen appliances can also help homeowners reduce their monthly bills. New energy efficient refrigerators or dishwashers can also make keeping the kitchen clean and organized much easier.
Technology can do more for your home than beef up your kitchen. For example remote lighting, AC and heat will help you better manage your energy usage, no matter where you are. This sort of technology may require some extra home improvement financing, but it can save you money later on, make your home more comfortable to live in and help you sell it for more down the road.
