When thinking of getting some work done around the home, it's often difficult to decide on what part of the home your money, time, and effort is best spent. Before pulling out your toolbox, make sure you're certain about why exactly you're thinking of renovating, as that can be a pretty good indicator of where to direct your attention.
Are you planning on selling your home, or are you going to be living in it for a while? If you're planning on selling, are you looking to increase the value of the property, or are you trying to get it to sell as quickly as possible? Knowing exactly why you're planning on doing some home improvement greatly narrows the list of jobs that are worth investing in.
If you're looking to dress the inside of your home up a bit, consider things like paint and flooring, as walls and floors take up a lot of visual space. The kitchen and bathrooms also provide plenty of opportunities to upgrade due to all the cabinets, appliances, and fixtures.
If the outside of your home is looking dated, new siding and roofing can have the place looking brand new, and some colorful landscaping will set the whole thing off nicely. You might also be looking to add some utility to your home by installing a garage, shed, deck, or porch. A lounging area, storage space, or workshop can be incredibly useful to you, and offers major appeal to potential buyers.
