A Smart Investment: How to Use Your Tax Refund for Home Improvement

Expecting a refund check from Uncle Sam this year? If so, hopefully you’ve developed a sound plan for how you will spend the money. Financial experts do not recommend frivolous purchases, like an emotional support peacock, or taking a big gamble and putting all your money on black. And, they’re right. Neither of those are smart choices.

A better way? Consider investing the money into a home project or renovation that will hold value. Here are two projects you could take on to help you love your home even more, or appeal to future buyers if you’re looking to sell.

A Kitchen Remodel

The kitchen is the heart and soul of your home. It should reflect the style, features, and colors that will fit your family for many years to come. And, if you’re thinking about putting your home on the market in the future, remember that buyers look at kitchens closely.

Modern day kitchen trends are drastically different than kitchens of the past. Today’s families need a highly functional space that supports the needs of each and every member. But, before you even look at a paint swatch or piece of tile, you must map out a plan and budget for your remodel. Are you looking to make basic, cosmetic updates to paint and hardware? Or do you plan to rip everything out and start over?

Our friends (and sister company) CT Construction specialize in designing and transforming kitchen spaces into beautiful, functional spaces. From choosing raw materials and appliances, to designing the ideal layout, CT Construction can help you at every step.

A Flooring Transformation

Installing hardwood floors is another smart project that can add value to your home. Hardwood floors can transform a living space. And with many great options on the market, you can find a style and material that works with your budget. Here at Carpet Tech, we sell a wide range of quality and affordable flooring from the best manufacturers. Our experienced team also offers full-service installations.

If your home already has hardwood flooring, consider using your refund to revitalize them with  professional refinishing services. Our craftsmen can remove years of damage by sanding and refinishing your hardwood floors. We use a 100% dust-contained sanding system that keeps your home clean and your family comfortable during the update. Once we’ve successfully removed evidence of wear and tear, we’ll apply a coat of stain, sealant, and finish to get that brand new hardwood look that will last for years to come!
