  1. Garage door installation – This one is surprising! Although garage door installation may not be the first concept to come to mind when you think of exciting renovations, nevertheless, installing a garage door provides one of the highest returns on remodeling that you can get. As one of the first things a viewer sees, garage doors essentially pay for themselves by setting an aesthetic tone and quality standard that improve the overall retail value of a home.
  2. Updated kitchen – One of the most valued parts of a home, the kitchen is definitely an area that will either significantly contribute to or detract from a home’s net value.  If improving the value of your home is a priority, consider seriously investing in quality plumbing fixtures, cabinets, appliances, and countertops. 
  3. Increased living room space – Like the kitchen, the living room is the area where most of a home’s, well, “living” occurs! A comfortable, attractive, and versatile living room does the more to contribute to a home’s overall atmosphere of enjoyment and luxury than any other room in the house. As such, it’s worth investing in a little more living room space if you feel it will add to its comfort and functionality.

Improvements to it include a grand entry doorway, stone veneer exterior, landscaping, and new paint. Fit into the Wine Country living lifestyle with carefully chosen aesthetics that bring out the glamour of your Sonoma home.

Both as a host and from a personal standpoint, having clean, well-maintained bathrooms contributes a lot to a more pleasant home atmosphere.
