Update your outdoor space – North Carolina and South Carolina homeowners know how important outdoor living space is. Since most parts of these states have nice weather for the majority of the year, outdoor areas are heavily utilized. If you’ve been wanting to upgrade your yard, perhaps by adding a deck or a pool, tax refund season is the perfect time to do so. Not only will you have the extra money, but tax checks generally arrive right before the warmest seasons of the year, meaning you’ll get a lot of good out of your new backyard additions.
Add kitchen upgrades – Few rooms in the home have as high of a return-on-investment as the kitchen. It is not uncommon for people to spend more of their waking hours in their kitchens than they do anywhere else in their homes, so it’s essential for them to be excellent. Whether you’ve been thinking about overhauling your space entirely or just adding a few upgrades, like new appliances and drawer hardware, your tax refund check will give you the means to make your kitchen vision a reality.
Change the look of your bathroom – Bathrooms, like kitchens, tend to have a very high return-on-investment, not to mention that having a beautiful bathroom can make you feel like you’re living in a high-end hotel. Bathroom upgrades, while often expensive, are almost always worth it. Consider using your tax refund check this year to add upscale finishes to the most boring bathroom in your house. In no time, it is sure to be your favorite!
