As we’re finishing up the big things on the renovation—the electric, plumbing, floors, painting, etc.—we’re starting to turn our attention to the smaller details we hope will impress potential buyers. Sometimes the smallest features can make a home stand out. For us, things like antique-style crystal doorknobs, soft-closing drawers, and an ice-maker on the fridge helped win us over.
We knew when we started the renovation that we’d be budgeting a bit for these details, and we’ve been brainstorming a list of things we plan to include. Here’s what we’ve got so far:
- A smart thermostat (likely a Nest)
- USB-compatible outlets
- Dual-flush toilets
- Under-cabinet lighting
- 6-burner gas stove
So what are we missing? What are some smaller features that help a home stand out in your mind? I’d love to hear your ideas!
