25 Amazing Room Makeovers From HGTV’s House Hunters Renovation

These 10 around-the-house improvements are well worth the investment. Replacing accessories like towel bars, light fixtures and towels, plus applying a fresh coat of paint, is the absolutely easiest way to make your bathroom feel new and clean. You don’t need special skills for success; it’s a screwdriver- and-paintbrush project you can complete in a weekend. But keep in mind that this face-lift will only work if your basic fixtures—the sink and faucet, vanity, toilet, tub and tile—are all still in reasonably good shape.

Join the Thatched Owners Group for a one-off payment of £95 (01406 330007; ) for advice on insurance, grants and other money-saving ideas.

The average return on investment was 50%, based on the total amount spent by homeowners. The average profit across all improvement projects was £8,000.

It’s a formula you see played out on home renovation reality shows over and over again: An owner has a long list of must-haves (which can quickly add up) and a very tight budget.

By 2040, there are expected to be almost 80 million seniors accounting for 21 percent of the population. The existing housing stock isn’t equipped to safely accommodate that many older people—too many steep staircases, narrow walker-­unfriendly doorways, and slippery step-in bathtubs and showers. Forward-thinking homeowners are making necessary improvements to their home now—and those changes will benefit people of all ages, not just seniors. According to a 2015 survey by ­HomeAdvisor, 56 percent of homeowners who hired a pro for aging-related projects were younger than 65, and 10 percent were younger than 50.
