Kathy Foran - REALTY EXECUTIVES Boston West

When it comes to the time for a tax refund, you may have a lot of big plans for the extra money that you’ll receive back from Uncle Sam. Your mind may swirl with possibilities as to what you might do with the money. One of the best uses for the money is to reinvest it in your home. It can only increase the value of your property, giving you more equity to play with whether you plan to refinance or sell in the future. The money you get back may be enough to do things like buy new appliances or put in a new floor. Below, you’ll find some of the best ideas for how to spend your tax refund money on home improvements. 


Paint


Adding some new paint to your home can do wonders for both the interior or the exterior. See what needs to be done the most and do some cost estimates. You may even be able to hire a professional painter who can get a painting job done fairly quickly without making the huge mess that you might if left to painting on your own.


Add Some Rugs


Adding just a few rugs to the hardwood surfaces around your home may make your home a lot cozier. For one, the surfaces that you walk on with bare feet will be much softer and warmer to the touch. Rugs also add a certain style element to a room that not many other accents can. Be sure that the rug you choose blends well with the color scheme that you desire for your rooms. 


Work On The Outdoors


With your tax refund money, you’ll be able to make some significant improvements to the outdoor spaces of your home. It can never hurt to add a bit of curb appeal to your property by adding bushes, new grass, outdoor lighting, and the like. Even painting your front door can be a simple task that makes a huge difference to the outside of your home. 


Upgrade Your Appliances


Upgrading your appliances can be one of the biggest things that you do to add value to your home. You can start small with items like your range and dishwasher. If you have a bit more money to play with, you may end up servicing and replacing larger items like your hot water heater, HVAC systems, or even adding solar panels. The money that you’ll save on energy efficiency will pay for the appliances over time. Also, if you’re getting ready to sell your home, these upgrades will make a huge difference in the return value that you can get for your home.
