Kitchen splashback grey

Your home is the biggest investment you will make in your life. There are a number of small improvements that you can do without spending a lot of money. The renovations of a house can add value to your home but also will add comfort, which will be better for a future sale.

Regardless of whether you are upgrading your floor, walls, outdoor space, or splash-back, opting for tile is a no-brainer. Tiles last for decades, is simple to clean, and is versatile. Moreover, it is available in all sorts of shapes and sizes, a wide selection of colours and tones, and different glazes to produce natural or sparkly effects.

If you can only choose a couple rooms to revive during your remodel, focus on the kitchen and bathroom. Just minor remodels of these two rooms have been shown to provide the best interior room return on investment.

We aren’t surprised that the kitchen and bathroom are so important because we spend so much time in these two rooms. Making sure these spaces shine is critical to our personal long-term comfort and to making a good impression within the housing market.

As with home repairs, you don’t have to spend a lot on your kitchen and bathroom in order to increase your home’s value.

There is also a way to provide a healthy and sustainable living environment and it lies underfoot — ceramic tile flooring. Ceramic tile emits no volatile organic compounds, contains no plastics or plasticizers, and will not harbor dust mites, mold, or bacteria. And, there is peace of mind with ceramic tile flooring knowing that it doesn’t burn or smoke in a fire.

Ceramic tile can also save you money once installed. Besides easy maintenance, ceramic tile  can make your home feel cooler in the summer and, with inexpensive radiant heating, warmer in the winter.

Because it has the lowest life cycle cost of any flooring option, ceramic tile also adds value to your home, as it will last longer than other surfaces. You won’t need to update your flooring to attract a buyer when you decide to sell, and your buyer won’t need to update the flooring anytime soon, either.


The real estate agents always claim the kitchen is the most valuable room in the house, and they would be right in saying so because people often spend more time in the kitchen than any other room. Upgrading your kitchen, giving it a fresh look, and transforming it into something that appeals to buyers doesn’t have to require complex challenges. By making simple cosmetic upgrades like replacing the flooring and adding some backsplash behind kitchen countertops is the easier and most cost-effective way to upgrade an refresh your kitchen.


Along with the kitchen, the bathroom is among one of the most important rooms in the house, not only for you but your guests too. Your bathroom is the one room that buyers analyze with scrutiny and nothing turns potential buyers off more than an outdated bathroom. If a potential buyer finds your bathroom clean, modern, and newly remodelled then it instantly supersedes their expectations and leaves a lasting impression. Aside from some deep cleaning before potential buyers view your house, the most important and easiest things you can upgrade in your bathroom are the new tiles, backsplash, and countertop.
