With the annual tax deadline behind us, consumers across the country are daydreaming about what they plan to do with their refund, which averages around $2,700. If you’re a homeowner, a great idea would be to funnel that refund into upping your home’s ROI. Here are several great home improvements you can make with that refund.
1. Bolster your curb appeal. From replacing or repainting your front door to redoing that cracked front walkway, rebooting your curb appeal is always a good idea. Hire a landscaper or plant new flower beds yourself, pressure wash your driveway and replace your mail box.
2. Upgrade your toilet. While a new toilet may be pleasing to the eye, that modern toilet can also save you money. Toilets installed prior to 1995 can use as much as 6 gallons of water with every flush. Newer models can use as little as 1.2 gallons. An older toilet is also more likely to leak, so an updated model can save you the hassle of having to make a repair.
3. Update your light fixtures. It’s amazing what proper lighting can do for your home. Replace that old, outdated bathroom vanity, swap out your chandelier, install a few sconces, and soon your home will be well-lit and sparkling.
