Home renovations can make you fall in love with a house that you had spent years struggling to feel comfortable in. Another thing that home renovations can do is raise your house's value. But, you have to make the right home renovations,popular upgrades.

Check out these popular home renovations

Because popular home upgrades are often trendy, they may change every several years. Unless you have deep pockets, you may want to focus on upgrades that you and potential home buyers will appreciate for at least a decade or longer. Here are popular house renovations that offer benefits like more living space, better comfort, improved style and greater functionality:

  • Upgraded bathroom - You don't have to knock out walls and redo the entire bathroom. A great bathroom upgrade can be as simple as installing stylish, metal bathroom faucets or replacing bathroom counters with fashionable granite counters. You could also replace your bath tub, installing a classic marble tub or a standalone metal tub.
  • Kitchen counters - People love granite kitchen counters and unique back splashes. Another item that people appreciate is a kitchen island that's topped with a granite counter. These renovations add more space and personality to your kitchen.
  • Finished basement - Little upgrades add more sleeping, living or entertaining space to your house like a finished basement. Go as far as adding a bathroom and small kitchen to your finished basement and you could rent the space out as a small apartment.
  • Covered parking space - By adding cover to your current driveway, you'll enjoy added protection for your vehicles. The cover protects vehicles against hot summer's rays, hail, snow and hard rains.
  • Extra bedroom - Look to your attic, basement or den when you start thinking about adding a bedroom to your house. Use this space as a short or long term living space for guests.
  • Enclosed porch - Turn your front porch into a fascinating outdoor living space.
  • Customized bookcase - This is a popular apartment amenity. Add a customized bookcase to your living room, bedroom or home library. Fill shelves with family portraits, fresh or silk flowers, awards and artwork.

Home renovations do more than improve your living conditions

The right home renovations can shift your opinion of your house from disapproving to very satisfied. Make popular home renovations and you could shift opinions that home buyers have of your house too. If you've been struggling to sell your house and get it off the real estate market, one or more renovations may be in order.

Just make sure that you pay for renovations that lots of people love. Stylish bathroom tiles, fancy kitchen back splashes and newly installed living and dining room bay windows get a lot of appreciation. Other home renovations like roof solar panels empower your house with trendy style.

This type of popular home upgrade is also environmentally friendly. On top of that, it lowers utility costs for homeowners. It's just one reason why popular home renovations offer more than one benefit. It's why popular home upgrades pay for themselves over the short and the long term.

You may be in the market to buy a vacation home in the near future. Getting ready to purchase a second home can be a big decision and a big financial commitment. Aside from a good investment, buying a vacation home brings enjoyment to you and your family. To help you make a good decision on when and where to buy your vacation home, read on. 


Itís All About Location


You need ton know why you want to buy a second home. Do you spend a lot of time in one specific area? Do you want to explore one particular place a bit more on a frequent basis? The reason behind why you purchase a home for vacation purposes will fuel your decision on location. If youíre looking for a simple getaway with your family several times a year, the answer may be different than if you want to have a rental property. Choose a location that has varied seasons. You donít want the prime time for use of the property to be the same as when youíd like to be on the property with your family.   


Donít Purchase On A Whim


While it can be tempting to search for homes while youíre on a getaway, you should rent several times before you make the decision to buy in a particular place. Vacations can give buyers this sense of awe that could quickly fade. You donít want your decision to be fueled by emotion. You need to be certain that youíll actually enjoy an area for the long term. 


Shopping for a vacation home is quite similar to shopping for your main house. You want to know youíre in a good area and that youíll enjoy the house or the long haul. Itís tough to do that if you donít have a basic understanding or appreciation of the area.  


How Often Will You Use The House, Really?


You need to be realistic about how often youíll actually use your vacation house. It may not be worth it to buy in an area that will only be used one week out of the year. If you know youíll be able to use the space all of the time, then go for buying a home in the location of your dreams. If, however, youíre unsure of how often youíll be able to get to the house you might want to think twice. You could do just as well finding a spot that you can use as a reliable rental when you want it. Donít forget that buying a second home means having a second home to maintain. Not everyone is up for that challenge.
