No matter what the season, you should always consider your home’s value — no matter if we plan to sell five weeks or five years from now. It’s justt good business sense to make good investment that will not only increase your enjoyment of the home but create value for he next buyer. To increase your home value, it’s essential to make smart investments in stylish, timeless home upgrades. One easy, big-impact project? Replace your surfaces. Here, five tips (and plenty of inspiration images!) for doing just that.
Countertops, the focal point of many a kitchen, can be an instant turn-off (think: washed-out Formica) for homebuyers. Luckily, this upgrade is surprisingly easy.

Meanwhile, those looking for artful addition can opt for a style-forward mosaic in the shower (see your options here).
Fall is on the way, sure, so you should start planning now. A statement-making fireplace exudes coziness during cold-weather months.
Go classic with a rich marble or modern with a stacked stone variety. Then, when potential homebuyers visit, you can switch on the fireplace for instant home appeal.
Give tired, empty basements a much-needed facelift by installing a spacious bar ideal for get-togethers.
Entertain guests year-round, and then, when it’s time to put your home on the market, tout the rare amenity of an in-home bar and gathering space.
Lush grass and vibrant flowers certainly beautify outdoor areas, but the practical amenities — like an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and seating area — are truly transformative.
