5 Home Renovation Ideas That Decrease Your Home Value


Planning home renovations that will create your dream home is exciting to think about. But, as with any major financial project, doing your research and being mindful about your decisions is an important step of the process.

When you look at your home, it is prudent to understand all the possibilities that will increase and decrease your home value. After all, one day your house may be on the market and the last thing you want is to regret any of your home renovation decisions.

domilya GROUP understands how to strike the balance between achieving your dream home and smart home renovation ideas to protect your investment. Together we can explore all the options and create a plan that you will love.

There are 5 home renovation ideas that will decrease your home value:

  1. Getting too fancy or too much customization. Research is imperative in home renovation plans. Look at the housing market in your neighbourhood. What renovations have your neighbours done? What is a potential homeowner looking for in your area? You need to understand the market and renovate accordingly. Simple, timeless designs work better for long-term investment.
  1. Reducing the number of bedrooms or closet space for a large master suite or office. This is never a good idea. The more bedrooms in your home, the higher the market value. Instead work with the space you have to create what you want.
  1. Making your yard smaller. Again, look at the scale of the properties and houses in your neighbourhood. If you lose space in the backyard to add on a living room or sunroom, you are taking away from the overall value of your home in your neighbourhood. There are other ways to renovate so your current space is used in the best way possible.
  1. Swimming pools are never a great home investment. Although wonderful to have, swimming pools and hot tubs can affect the value of your home. Families with young children do not want necessarily want the responsibility to maintain either of these items. There are also safety concerns with such features. A pool or hot tub may inadvertently decrease the number of potential customers and your home’s value.
  1. Do not turn the garage into a living or gym space. It may make sense but losing that storage space and ability for families to store their vehicles in a covered space during cold weather could affect your home value. Renovating a basement area for a family room, office, home gym or in-law suite is a much better investment for a home renovation.

Where To Start On Your Next Home Renovation


When you consider a home renovation one of the first questions often asked is, where do I start? This is quickly followed up with, what do I do before a renovation or what area of the home do I renovate first?

These are important questions to think about before you start any home renovation project.

domilya GROUP can help create your plan with some basic initial steps with the specific goal of achieving the home of your dreams.

What To Do Before A Renovation

  • Set a budget
  • Be clear about the scope of the project
  • Do your research on contractors and best ROI for a home renovation
  • Investigate temporary housing if necessary
  • Create a storage plan
  • Improve security

Once you have a working plan and the help of an experienced contractor like domilya GROUP, the next question is what do I renovate? Being smart about home renovations is important for the present and the future. You should want to balance the desire to create your dream home with decisions that will provide an investment in your property.

5 Areas Of Your Home To Start Renovating

Sometimes thinking about renovations means more than just remodelling a room. Details can matter and thinking about your entire home works to provide opportunities for well-thought out home renovations.

  • Flooring is the most important aspect of your home. Hardwood floors provide an instant refresh to your space.
  • Fixtures are small but can be effective ways to upgrade your space that will revitalize your entire home. Cabinet hardware, light fixtures (pot lights), countertops and faucets are just a few things to consider.
  • Bathrooms are the second most important room in the home in terms of long-term valuation. Renovating to have a powder room in a one-bathroom house will help create more space for you and increase value.
  • The kitchen is the single most important room to renovate. A modern, fresh and desirable kitchen with new appliances and features like under-cabinet lighting will not only provide you space and joy, but is a highly valuable investment in your home.
  • Income/In-law suites are highly popular and if renovating a basement space, should be an important consideration. Whether it’s a possible stream of income or comfort for your extended family, an income/in-law suite will increase your home’s worth.


Whether at the preplanning, beginning or any stage of your home renovation, domilya GROUP is here to make the process easy for you. Contact us today to discuss the best way to start your home renovation so you can have the house of your dreams.
