Think about this – what type of home improvement will increase the value of your home while also maximising your return on investment?
Like most people, you probably thought of a huge remodelling project like a bathroom or a kitchen renovation. After all, these are the obvious options. The more you invest in these projects, the better the returns, right?
As it turns out, this might not necessarily be true. The most profitable home improvements are those that are cheap, simple and environmentally-friendly.
If you are hoping to put your property up for sale then this is great news! If you are not, you will still end up adding to the value of your home with some selective energy-efficient additions.
In this piece, we have discussed some of the most lucrative solutions that will not only offer the best ROI but also improve your home’s green credentials!
Let’s take a look at these energy-efficient installations!
Low Flow Toilets, Faucets and Showerheads

You can control how much water is used and add to your efforts of green conservation. Reducing the amount of water used in your home without impacting day-to-day activities and chores pave way for a brilliant opportunity to save money and be green.
