Home Upgrades HGTV's Nate Berkus Says Are Worth The Extra Cost
When it comes to upgrading your home in a way that reflects your story and personality, HGTV star Nate Berkus has the perfect tip on where to spend a little extra money.
In an interview with MyDomaine, Berkus cautions home owners: "Don’t skimp on anything built-in like the countertops, appliances, plumbing."
Berkus doesn't think these are the places for guesswork or going DIY, and he recommends working with licensed contractors with known references to avoid any upgrade failures.
Built-in elements, like countertops, aren't solely aesthetic but are required for daily life tasks. As they're built-in, they're costly to install and even more expensive to fix.
