Which Home Improvement Projects Made Homeowners Happier?

Most homeowners usually focus on the returns on investments or financial costs of a home improvement project. However, beyond financial benefits, a home improvement project can also give you a sense of satisfaction and make you happier, explains replacement windows contractor Renewal by Andersen® of Quad Cities.

Where We Got the Info

The National Association of REALTORS® conducted a survey last year about the levels of satisfaction homeowners experienced after completing certain home improvement projects. The association crunched the numbers to come up with the joy score, which indicates the level of satisfaction homeowners enjoyed.

Home Improvement Projects With the Highest Joy Scores

  • Kitchen renovation (Joy Score of 10) – The kitchen is usually the busiest place in the average American household (most homeowners spend their time at home there), so it’s no surprise that kitchen renovations got a perfect joy score of 10.
  • Fiberglass front door (Joy Score of 9.7) – After installing a new fiberglass front door, 79% of the homeowners surveyed said they wanted to be in their home more while 67% said they enjoyed being in their home a lot more.
  • New vinyl windows (Joy Score of 9.6) –  Nearly half of the homeowners in the study installed new vinyl windows  to improve the livability in their home while 23% got a window replacement to update your exterior. Regardless of the reasons for installing a window replacement, new vinyl windows gained a respectable joy score of 9.6.

Are Home Improvement Projects Worth It in the End?

Given these joy scores, not to mention the increase in property value, home improvement projects are certainly worth the time and effort. Keep in mind that other factors, such as how smooth the window installation process goes, can affect how much satisfaction you get from a project.
