Four Luxury Home Upgrades
These luxury home improvements will help you create your dream home—and may boost its value if you are looking to make a move.
Install the latest technology:
Make your home smarter and safer with remote communication systems such as video doorbells and WiFi-enabled security systems. The systems can be easily managed through your phone, and may help keep your home safer when you’re out of town.
Potential home value: +3% to 5%
Cater to guests—short or long term:
Remodel a basement or other area to create private, additional space to accommodate an au pair, in-laws, or other guests. As more families grow, and as parents and grandparents age, the added space becomes more important.
Potential home value: +5% to 10%
Turn your patio into a second kitchen:
Extend your living space to the outdoors with a customized patio, including a furnished fire pit space and an outdoor kitchen—perfect for hosting parties next to the pool.
Potential home value: +3% to 4%
Create your own spa:
Turn your backyard into an oasis by adding a hot spa to your existing pool or a freestanding hot tub surrounded by lush landscaping. Complete the look with travertine or exotic hardwood paneling.
Potential home value: +1 to 4%
