Improve Your Kitchen to Help Sell Your Home

My husband and I recently put our home onto the market, because we were expecting a baby and need to upgrade to something larger. When offers rolled in that were really low, we decided to ask our realtor why people thought the house was worth so much less than it was. He was honest and told us that he had heard our kitchen was a bit of an eyesore. He was right, but I had actually put off renovations because I knew we were looking to sell the home soon. We took the gamble and renovated our kitchen. It paid off! We received an offer that was near our asking price, and it made the kitchen renovations well worth it! I created this blog to help others struggling to sell their homes realize that a few small improvements can help you finally sell your home!

Designing A Custom Home For Your Young Family? 4 Rooms You Need To Add To The Plans

If you're in the process of planning your custom home, make accommodations for the kids. Whether you have young children right now, or you're planning on starting a family soon, there are some things you'll want to add to your custom home. Here are four rooms you'll want to discuss with your custom home builders.

Laundry Room

When it comes to kids, they tend to generate a lot of dirty clothes. If your laundry area is located in the garage, you'll need to leave your kids unattended while you do your laundry. Unfortunately, young kids can get into trouble when they're left unattended. In fact, you could end up with big messes to clean up each time you come in from the garage. Not to mention the fact that you'll have to carry all your laundry back and forth from the garage. To make your life easier, insist on an indoor laundry room in your new custom home. Don't forget to include a utility sink so you can rinse out any seriously messy clothes before tossing them in the washer.

Mud Room

Kids love to spend time outside. However, outside play often leads to muddy clothes and shoes. Unfortunately, mud can wreak havoc on your carpeting. To make sure that you have an easier time keeping your house clean, as well as an easier time keeping mud off your carpets, talk to your contractor about including a mudroom in the plans for your new custom home. A mudroom will provide a safe place for your kids to take their muddy shoes off when they come back in. If you have a dog, the mudroom will also give you a place to clean off muddy paws, as well.

Play Room

If you haven't added a playroom to your plans yet, you need to talk to your contractor. Playrooms provide kids with plenty of space to play, without the need to clutter up their bedrooms. Adding plenty of shelves and some built-in desks will ensure that your kids have a place to neatly store their toys, while also affording them space to sit and color or write. That way, their bedrooms stay neat and tidy.

Entertainment Room

In addition to the play room, be sure to include a family entertainment room. This room should include all the toys and gadgets you'll need to keep yourself entertained, such as a media wall, movie theater seating, and refreshment stations.
