Not all remodels add value to your home.  While it’s always important to consider what you really want, it’s also a good idea to look into what home buyers want if you’re thinking about selling in the future. While it’s not likely that you’ll be adding an elevator (number 1 on the list), many of the other items get added to homes on a regular basis.  Some of these items may surprise you.  I would have thought an outdoor kitchen would be popular here in California and I’ve seen many beautiful kitchens with glass cabinets.  If you’ve always wanted a wet bar, well then go for it.  Just keep in mind that it probably won’t add equity to home the way other additions might.  For a list of additions that DO pay off check out the 11 top home improvements that pay off in California.
