Not every home improvement increases your home’s value but if you’re looking to elevate your home design, especially for potential luxury buyers, here are five editions you could consider.
#1. Home gym.
Having a well-created home gym or exercise room can be a welcome addition to potentially active homebuyers. You can purchase items through York Gym that offer durable essential items such as bikes, rowing machines, rubber flooring, and punching bags. However, make sure that this room is only designed for fitness. A hodgepodge of purposes can only make it look messy.
#2. Outdoor kitchen.
Yes, even in Seattle we like to entertain outdoors. But this is more than just an area to barbecue and a nice seating spot. Buyers are looking for a state-of-the-art, over-the-top beautiful outdoor kitchen and eating spaces. This might include a sink, ovens, grills, refrigerators, and of course, a great sitting area. You might even consider an outdoor fireplace with a mounted television above it.
#3. Architectural lighting.
This may be one of the easiest things to add on to your home. This type of architectural lighting can enhance interior features like drop ceilings or give an impression of an enhanced height in hallways and stairs.

#4. Indoor pool.
In the Seattle area, we don’t get a lot of uses for an outdoor pool so an indoor pool might be exactly what you need to appeal to a certain type of buyer. Of course, you have to be careful with a pool. It may turn some buyers off because of the added maintenance, however, to the right buyer, this is a perk that will add a lot to the value of your home.
Similar to a swimming pool, greenhouses are best for growing indoor plants, fruits, and vegetables year-round. A well-appointed greenhouse that matches the siding of your home or enhances the backyard can be a great perk to your home’s value.
Everyone is looking for something different but by adding one or two luxury items you can increase the sale price of your home and at tons of value.
