#20: Update the Home Office

Take care of business with a home office remodel. More and more often people are working out of their houses. It is not just a luxury, but a necessity. Turn an unused den or an old office into an inviting work sanctuary with new windows, a fresh coat of paint and built-in shelving, and you're sure to reap the rewards.

#19: Spring for a Sunroom

Anytime you can add square footage and living space to your home, it's a winner. Build a sunroom in the back of the house where you have less tree cover and more privacy. The result? A stunning addition that transforms the entire house. During the day, the room attracts sunlight, and in the evenings, it attracts guests.

#18: Create or Renovate a Master Suite

Master suites aren't really a luxury anymore — they are an expected feature. On average, 33 percent of house shoppers are more than likely to buy a home that has recently been renovated. If you can work within the footprint of a house, you're going to increase your return on investment. When buyers walk into a master suite, they want to see a cozy open space with a really nice closet. Also, always try to squeeze in every bit of storage you can.
