I have found in my walks of life, than very few things made to a home actually increase the value of a home. Maybe one for sure would be a pool.
But many other "in home" repairs or upgrades only fall into maintenance and up keep. Maybe a fireplace in an original home without one may also increase the value.
Before you dump in $$$ and expect this to increase the value, check with a reputable realitor.
Remember, most if not all homes are valued on what other homes sell for in your vacinity or comparable size and shape and stuff.
Don't expect to increase it too much and be disappointed. any improvements need to be looked at what they will do for you and your family NOW.
