4 Expert Tips to Boost the Value of Your Home with Interior Design in 2024
As we step into 2024, the real estate market is still going strong. And, as some of us move into new homes while others put their property on the market, there’s no better time to consider what interior design features can increase the value of our homes.
At Noelle Interiors, we believe interior design is all about creativity, with each year bringing a fresh wave of exciting ideas—and some of these can instantly boost resale values. Let’s discover the top 4 tips to boost the value of your home with interior design!
1) Go Big on Practicality
While there are plenty of ways ways to make your home more practical, we love merging the top two ways—optimal storage and multifunctional rooms—into one innovative solution: a combination laundry and mud room. Here, the homeowner can remove muddy coats and dirty sportswear and place them in the wash before they are able to track dirt into the rest of the home. This is also a great place to maximize storage with cabinets, hooks, and baskets.
2) Enhance the Curb Appeal
How attractive your home is, when viewed from the street, has a say in its resale value. When done right, it can boost this value by up to 11%. Consider achieving the purpose by:
- Replacing old hardware on the porch
- Painting the front door with a bold color
- Adding comfortable seating to the porch
- Installing outdoor lighting
- Renewing the garden with plants and flowers
3) Renovate the Kitchen and Bathroom
A prospective homebuyer’s first stop is usually the kitchen—so, consider giving it a quick spruce-up before putting your home on the market. Consider replacing dated backsplash with something more trendy, painting the cabinets a new color, and putting out open shelving for storage. If you’re in for a splurge, a breakfast bar makes for a great addition!
A spa-like bathroom is another value booster for your home. Regrout your tub and tiles, add vanity cabinets, and replace your toilet to make your home stand out on the market.
4) Add Artisanal Crafts and Handcrafted Details
People are now looking for uniqueness and character in their homes—as achieved by artisanal crafts and handcrafted details. Our favorite ideas at Noelle Interiors are handcrafted objects, such as pottery and ceramics as decorative pieces.
As we forge ahead into 2024, we see new, innovative trends taking center stage. Tip: If you’re in for a quick (and affordable) upgrade, consider a fresh coat of paint; here are paint colors that will add value to your home.
