-give your existing garage space a new purpose. By converting unused garage space into a home office, playroom or studio the value of your home will increase because you’ve expanded the usable living space.
2. Kitchen Renovations:
The kitchen is the heart of your home. In California and especially in Los Angeleshaving a modern kitchen with updated appliances, a good flow into the living space of the home, and a unique style is essential to increasing the value of your home.
Here are a few high-value design suggestions when renovating your kitchen:
-Add stainless steel appliances
– Update the faces of your kitchen cabinets. Make sure that when working with your contractor you get an estimate for a few types of wood. It’s important that the wood selected flows well with the design presented throughout the rest of your California home.
-During renovations, look for opportunities to open the space and flow of your kitchen. Perhaps that looks like adding a floating hood over your stovetop.
3. Bathroom Renovations:
Your bathroom is another key element of up-leveling the design and increasing the value of your home. Often, especially in some of the Los Angeles homes that were built in the ’40s and ’50s the bathroom could use an update. When looking at design ideas to increase the value in your bathroom It’s important to think timeless. Having a clean-lined design can also help streamline the cost of your bathroom renovation project.

– Amplify your bathroom’s natural lighting. A great way to do this is by adding a larger vanity mirror.
-Stick with lighter paint colors. You can easily expand the feeling of a bathroom space by sticking to light paint colors and then adding bolder color accents with towels, or artwork.
