If you want the value of your home to increase, increase the value of your home. The trick is to do so with improvements that have broad appeal. The broader the appeal of the actual structural design of your home, the greater its value. Try to not over-improve with heavy taste-specific buildouts. Ideally, leave the dominant taste and style that is unique to you for what you put in the space and how you use it. Here are some strategies that you may find could work for you and your home.
4 MAIN REASONS TO INCREASE THE VALUE OF YOUR HOME
What is the main objective behind your improvement project? Keeping this in mind while you make each decision acts as a mission statement. This way, you can test if your décor or structural choices are actually a part of the solution you are reaching for and you can be sure that they are not mistakes that will affect the marketability of your home.
1. HOME IMPROVEMENTS TO SELL YOUR HOME
If you intend to put your home on the market either now or in the future, and that is the purpose of your home improvement project, then make sure your choices are neutral. Realtors actually want to make walls disappear in smaller rooms or spaces that need to be open when they show homes. Any arrangement allowing space to be flexible, as well as neutral, will just simply solve more problems as they walk through the door in the minds of buyers. Don’t create problems with colors that have to be changed or fixtures that stand out. The objective is to get buyers to be able to visualize themselves in your house; to do so remove as much indication of the fact that you, with your taste and style, live there, not them.
2. MANAGE THE COST OF MAINTENANCE AND CREATE GREATER EFFICIENCY
Home maintenance is something that can be on a schedule to mitigate damage. Upgrading technology is actually a form of maintenance, especially with appliance life-cycles being predictably bad. When you do address your media room, office, kitchen, garage, or laundry room tech upgrades, consider how you will house components and appliances, keeping in mind the need for neutrality if you ever intend to sell your home. Configuring with flexible or glass interior walls can also help with room temperature efficiency and not take away any sense of space at the same time.
3. EXPAND OR RECONFIGURE YOUR HOME FOR INCOME SUCH AS AIR BNB
Extracting extra income out of your home is a strategy a lot of people are taking now. Homeowners who want to create a separate space for AIR BNB guests can find reconfigure solutions that are unique and neutral within our collection which can provide security and ensure safety. Flexibility is wonderful as well with this kind of arrangement which could be seasonal or sporadic.
4. EXPAND OR RECONFIGURE FOR YOUR OWN ACCOMMODATION
Even if you don’t have any reason for home improvement other than for your own accommodation; an in-law suite or repurposed garage, great choices reveal themselves as you work with our design team to nail your vision.
BEST OPTIONS FOR HOME INVESTMENT
Other than staying on top of maintenance and technology upgrades, these are the long-held strategies for increasing your home’s marketability in just about any market.

We are experts at arriving at the best options for any homeowner’s intentions and we make doing so stress-free and fun.
1. CREATE OR IMPROVE AN EN-SUITE MASTER BATHROOM

Whether they are mirrors for closet doors or a sliding bathroom door this is where you want to get the most for your spend. Inserting a room divider to provide defined spaces in lofts, condos or homes creates visual privacy where needed, an extra room for guests with no major construction and a transformation in hours! Now that’s value beyond doors.

SPEND WISELY ON RELEVANT STYLE
Here are some examples of our projects that will show you how you could spend wisely on the right look for your objective:
1.COMBINE MODERN DESIGN WITH CURRENT ARCHITECTURE
Modern is the new neutral. People are stressed and want a simple, relaxing environment with sleek and unobtrusive styles. Modern aesthetics combine great with other periods to update already existing architecture. This Glass Barn Door, for example, is a sophisticated way to update any look. Updating historical or rustic looks appeals to international dwellers as well as younger generations and barn doors hug the wall and save every inch of floor real estate.
The demand for room division is increasing and our Glass Room Dividers are one of the best ways to increase utility and beauty as well. One way to create corners for furniture or more wall space for visuals is to make smaller space by dividing it, like with these Black Frame Room Dividers:
Sliding doors transform space when they disappear, turning two rooms or more into one and at the same time-saving space by not intruding on either interior or exterior space. Glass Sliding Doors can have dual purposes, like a closet door in one position and a hallway or bathroom door in the other.
No matter what you have in mind, The Sliding Door Company will certainly be able to show you how to make it real, while keeping the integrity of your home and improving its value and your satisfaction.
