Exciting Ways to Improve Your Home in 2021

This year’s stay-at-home orders made many of us more appreciative of our cozy living spaces. If your home still has a long way to go, you might consider prioritizing a few well-deserved upgrades in 2021.

As we continue to battle the covid-19 pandemic, more people are spending their money on home improvements. Staying home more often tends to make people pay attention to things around the house. Even if you are still working outside of the home, there are many good reasons to improve your living space.

Maybe you’re thinking about selling in a few years, and you want to increase your home’s value. You could want to redesign your home to make it more compatible with a healthy lifestyle. Perhaps you’re hoping to treat yourself to some luxurious new features next year. No matter why you want to update your home in 2021, these great ideas will point you in the right direction.

Best Improvements for Property Value

Roof Replacement

A roof is one of the critical parts of a building, so it makes sense that a new installation would add to your property value. A roof can offer a 68.4 percent return on investment, but one of the greatest benefits is peace of mind.

If you plan on living in your home for a while longer, you’ll be glad to reduce any worries about a leaky roof. There’s nothing worse than realizing you have roof issues in the middle of the season's biggest rainstorm! If your roof is getting old, replace it sooner rather than later.

Updated Composite Deck

A deck provides space for dining and socializing as well as placing potted plants, fountains, or other types of outdoor décor. A composite deck looks like a wooden deck, but it’s far more durable. The composite is a blend of wood and plastic fibers, which serve to make the deck more durable. A composite deck will do a better job of withstanding the elements than a wooden deck.

Not only does a deck provide you with a comfortable spot to enjoy the outdoors, but it also increases the value of your home by up to $9,000. With a composite deck installation, you’ll recoup around 82 percent of the costs when you later sell your home. Considering you’ll also get to enjoy the deck before you move, that’s a great return on investment!

Best Improvements for Comfort at Home

Bathroom Addition

Anyone who has shared a bathroom with family members will recognize the value of adding another to the home. This year, most people were home from work or school. Being home more often results in more wear and tear on bathroom surfaces and fixtures.

Whether your trustworthy old toilet has taken a beating, or you’re simply tired of waiting in line for the shower, 2021 is a great year to add a new bathroom to the house.

A New HVAC System

No home is complete without a functional HVAC system. Just like bathrooms, HVAC units are enduring more usage during the lockdowns. More usage means more maintenance. If you don’t want to deal with HVAC problems anytime soon, investing in a new unit is a great idea.

If you already have a relatively new unit, consider signing up for a maintenance program. That way, you’ll always be able to trust your system is functioning efficiently.

Best Home Improvements for a Healthy Lifestyle

Whole-house Water Filter

Most home water filters only filter the water coming from the kitchen sink or fridge. If you want to ensure the water you bathe and brush your teeth with is clean, you’ll need to install a whole-house filter. It cleans all the water coming into the home, removing the need for tap or pitcher filters.

Most of these filters practice reverse osmosis, a process that completely purifies the water of substances like chlorine or fluoride. Those with sensitive or dry skin may benefit from bathing in purified water. A whole-house filter also makes it easy to get drinking water right from the tap.

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Device

Up to 96 percent of homes have some type of unhealthy substance or material in the air. Examples include dust, pet dander, pollen, and chemical pollutants. An IAQ device will monitor the quality of the air in your home. This is a wonderful investment for anyone who suffers from allergies or asthma. You’ll be able to keep track of your air quality and watch for anything that might trigger your symptoms.
