1 | Kitchens The most popular renovation is (and likely will be for the foreseeable future) your kitchen. Kitchens have become the focal point of homes everywhere. You can drastically improve the quality and value of your home by renovating this room first. There are countless ways to improve your kitchen, so consider updating the style of your cabinets, adding an island, upgrading to stone countertops, and new tile backsplash. 2 | Basements Most basements are unfinished in new home construction.
