Remodeling your kitchen , well of course it would be ! A sleek new remodel of your kitchen will
A) give it a fresh new exciting and modern look
B) new stainless steel appliances and new tech that comes with these modern world appliances, like a fridge that has a TV? Mad

Think about the kitchen is probably one of the most used and shall I say lived in and loved places in your entire home. Reports show a nicely done kitchen with modern granite countertop and some fancy stainless steel appliances, actually increase your homes equity by almost 60-70% !
What would be the second best Reno to do in your home ? Well like most of Canada we have tough winters-and lush , amazing summers filled with bright sunny days. Temperatures that rise above 25 degrees on most days and just and all around feeling of happiness.
So why not build a deck in your backyard ?
It is a tiny bit pricy depending on how extravagant you want to go with the build but usually a deck that can hold about 6-10 people easily is around the $9,000 – $12,000 range. The more SQ foot you need the price increases ! But the average deck is about 200-400 sq so your fine.
The benefits of have a deck in your backyard ? Invite your friends for some backyard get togetherness ! Host small parties for your kids and yourselves of course. Whip out the BBQ and make some burgers , enjoy the sun and maybe get a tan ? Who knows ! Having a deck in your backyard is kind of an extension of yourself and personality ! It’s kinda like having a porch in your front yard but in your backyard and it’s bigger … and away from nosey neighbors.
But how much on average does a deck add to your home ? It ads close to 80% from stats we’ve collected ! Don’t believe us ? Go to an open listing and see the backyard your realtor will more or less always say a deck would be the best added feature to any backyard ! Plus any home without a deck just feels empty
