Hedge Fund Investments: Divine Dividends

When most people think of a house as being an investment, it means they spend money on things that will contribute to financial gain when they sell it in a few years or more. We live in a culture of a “starter home” mentality where the belief is that one should always be buying something bigger and more expensive when able. When I bought my house my goal was for it to be my “forever” home, so one of my long-term investments for which I’m now enjoying the gains are my natural window treatments of the street-facing windows in my sunroom. A small investment in two potted perennials which have been nurtured for ten years have blossomed into the gorgeous privacy screen of my dreams!

What are some long-term investments you’ve made in your home simply for the joy it brings you and not because your ROI will be financial gain?

  1. We removed the doors to one bedroom and 2 closets. Our home is 936 square feet, no pets, no kids, just us. We can fit larger furniture in our kitchen and bedrooms since we removed the doors. I painted the closets in pretty pastel colors and stenciled the shelves. When and if we sell this house, the new owners can replace all the doors they want!

      1. We use them as closets. With the doors still on the closets, we couldn’t fit 2 side tables in the bedroom. Having matching clothes hangers and pretty colors help. Our biggest pet peeve is the fact that even though our house *looks* like a flat rectangle, windows aren’t hung in the middle of walls, door placement doesn’t make any sense, and there is wasted space throughout – which has created so many headaches! But on the plus side, the limitations are freeing because in a home this size, there is a cap to what can be achieved…but also to what could go wrong! 😆
