Could making a change to your home make you want to stay? The chances are good, judging by a report recently released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR).

The 2019 Remodeling Impact Report suggests that after remodeling, 74% of homeowners have a greater desire to be in their home, and 65% experience more enjoyment in their homes.

Which renovations are likely to give homeowners joy? To answer that question, the report assigns popular renovations a “Joy Score,” which reflects “the happiness homeowners reported with their renovations,” NAR explains.

The higher a Joy Score, the greater the joy a project brought to homeowners.

Following are the 19 renovations with the highest Joy Scores of the renovations included in the report. These projects all earned Joy Scores of more than 9.0 out of 10.
