If the owner intends to stay put, they should spend the money on what they will enjoy.
Too often home owners wait until it's time to sell before updating their home. They spend the money and in the end sell their dream home they never enjoyed.
The heart of the home tends to receive the greatest financial support.
Best of success,

Kitchen and bath upgrades cost the most, and one spends more money on these.
the amount of time spent in the Kitchen and Baths, is not as much as the Family
room or Bedroom or Office or Garage.
Rooms where one spends most time are those that are more comfortable.
In regards to light cosmetic remodels, there is nothing quite so strange as to walk in a home with a subzero wine chiller in the kitchen, and the door handles falling off, or torn up carpet in other rooms. It's a good idea to make sure your dollars are allocated in moderation throughout the house to get the greatest value. Though, you might keep a few extra dollars set aside for the wine chiller! :)
