Whether you’re looking to increase the value of your largest asset, or just plain bored of the space you’re living in, you and many others are going to start thinking about renovating your home. You might be thinking about gutting your bathroom, tearing down walls, and ripping shingles off the roof with the might of 1000 suns, but set the hammer down for a second there, tiger. There are a few different spaces in homes that are commonly overlooked for renovations, and it might just be worthwhile to bring them up to the standard of the rest of the property to boost its overall value before spending a fortune on a kitchen overhaul. Here are eight areas that deserve a little bit more love:
First impressions matter, and you know that… so why is your entryway being neglected? Throw up some simple decorations, maybe a plant or two, and definitely consider investing in some simple cabinetry, or shelving. Start the tour of your home with an inviting welcome, it’s probably the first thing your guests will remember!
Your hallway probably sucks. No, seriously. Statistically speaking, most homeowners neglect their hallways to no end as the space is mostly seen simply as a path to another room. Throw up some paintings, and consider decorating to give your home an overall warm and loving feeling. Trust me, it makes a difference!

Many homeowners will see the value in a bright and comfortable workspace, thus increasing the monetary value of your property. Think about investing your time & money into making your workspace as inviting as possible. (I’m willing to wager your ‘office’ consists of a desk placed in the corner of the living room, am I wrong?)
If you’re ever thinking of selling your home in the future, some of the best ways to increase the value of your home in a buyer’s eyes are to spruce up the rooms that are normally plain and show the world that you truly take care of your living space.
