What are the Most Popular Home Improvement Projects

Home Remodeling Projects that Make You Feel Better

By Mark J. Donovan

When people ask me what are the most popular home improvement projects, I normally ramble off a list of projects with the best return on investment. However, if I had to sum up my best answer in just six words I would say, “projects that make people feel better”. This brief answer doesn’t necessarily conflict with my list of projects related to return on investment. Instead, however, it provides another view point, as well as invaluable insight, into what might be the best home improvement project for you.

When it comes down to it, people in general like to do things, or invest in things, that improve their lives.

So when it comes to the most popular home improvement projects, in general it is interior remodeling projects that rank highest. In particular bathroom and kitchen remodeling projects are the most popular home improvement projects and it is not so surprising. When you think about it, the bathroom and kitchen is where we spend much of our most precious times.

They are the rooms that are most personal to us and provide the greatest pleasure, whether it be soaking in a Jacuzzi tub after a long hard day at work, or cooking our favorite recipe in the kitchen on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Other top popular home improvement projects include room additions, and flooring and wall coverings. Room additions frequently provide new bedrooms or family rooms that allow us to relax and enjoy our time at home more. Flooring and wall coverings allow us to personalize our homes, and provide character and warmth to our living spaces.
