During your next home renovation, choose changes that aren’t just about picking the hottest paint color; instead, add true value to your home. These four smart, strategic home upgrades will last well beyond the latest trend.

To create a clean and minimalist aesthetic, only treated pine plywood and concrete was used in the interiors.

1. Be Bold With the Bathroom 

When it comes to improving your lifestyle and your home’s value the bathroom edges out the kitchen as today’s best choice for a remodel. It can be more cost-effective (according to this cost versus value report), plus is an opportunity to add long-term value by installing an elegant, walk-in shower. Super on-trend now, highly useful in your (or a future homeowner’s) golden years. 

During a remodel, look to add stylish, low-flow fixtures to save money today and help you sell to the eco-conscious homeowner tomorrow. Change outdated countertops and cabinets for space-saving, floating vanities. Remove unflattering lighting fixtures in favor of diffuse LED lighting. Add some smarts and have those lights adapt instantly to your mood—bright and cheerful for the morning, calm and relaxing during your Sunday evening soak. You can’t put a price on wellbeing.

2. Switch to Smart Lighting 

Take control of your lighting by installing smart switches. While smart bulbs can change color, smart switches can change the way you live in your home. Perfect for rooms with multiple fixtures, lights, and switches, a smart lighting system like NOON Home replaces your current light switches and gives you instant control over every light in the room with one touch, or remotely through a smartphone or voice assistant. 

Switch from ‘cooking’ (above) to entertain (below) with one touch using Noon’s innovative Room Director—an OLED screen embedded into a switch that lets you select scenes. Or control it with your voice, by asking Alexa or Google Assistant to adjust your lighting.

“Noon eliminates the need to turn on and adjust all these switches by coordinating them wirelessly to create scenes that align with activities you do in the room,” says Aurora Chun of NOON. “For example, selecting a ‘Cooking’ scene on the Room Director would move all the light into the kitchen while dimming the dining and living space. While a ‘Dining’ scene would turn off all the lights in the kitchen and have a moodier dimmed light in the dining room.”
