Home renovations are exciting and fun—at least on paper or on Pinterest. In reality, house updates can be long and costly projects. Whether you are updating your house for yourself or planning to sell the family homestead, figuring out what projects to prioritize to get the most bang for your buck can be a challenge. After all, how are you supposed to know if painting the bathroom, putting in a tile backsplash, faux marbling your counters, or adding a backyard pergola is the best investment? Luckily, there is one project that can be done in a weekend, possibly handled without a contractor, and has a huge return on investment.
