Bathrooms and Kitchens Pay for Themselves

Will this renovation pay off? That’s the question on the minds of many a homeowner who want to increase the resale value.  The best remodeling projects with the highest return on investment focus on curb appeal and renovating kitchens and bathrooms. Here a few helpful tips on why these investments pay off:

Curb appeal:

First impressions are critical to selling. Potential buyers are forming opinions before they are even out of the car. Easy ways to improve exteriors include paint, power washing and cleaning windows. This freshens the appearance. Landscaping and removing clutter make a property feel cared for and tidy. Attention to these details can mean making a sale sooner. Additionally, outside investments are worthwhile because if prospective buyers don’t like the outside, it is hard to get them to go inside where the magic happens.


Who doesn’t eat? Who goes into a house and doesn’t pay attention to the spot where many hours will be spent? It is a critical selling point because most buyers do not want to renovate. In fact many dated homes sit on the market far longer than turn key properties. If a prospective buyer walks into a kitchen with a face-lift, they only need to bring their pots. This translates into less work for them. Wahoo!

While remodeling a kitchen can be costly, it doesn’t have to be. Quicker, less expensive options include paint and refinishing.  Have Refinish First improve countertop and flooring surfaces to achieve amazing results. New surfaces will make a kitchen pop and look new again.


Make a buyer feel like they are the first to use the room by creating a fresh and clean bathroom. Few people want ‘70s harvest gold wallpaper with a chipping ‘60’s pink sink. Not strong selling points. It is wise to replace and resurface. When you do your bathroom remodel, contact Refinish First to transform your counter, flooring and shower into a newer and better version of itself that will bring a high return on investment.

Return on Investment:

If you control your remodeling budget, by making decisions that will give you the highest return on investment, you will be able to ask a higher price. However if you decide to use gold plated faucets or diamond encrusted counter tops in your new bathroom, it is hard to recoup the investment. Using a company like Refinish First is a good idea because it is an affordable investment that delivers high value.
