We all have it. That long list of dream renovations or upgrades we’d like to do on our homes but never seem to find the money or time to get started.

This could be the year you finally take the plunge, but before you jump in you might want to check out Remodeling magazine’s 2014 Cost vs. Value Report, created in collaboration with the National Association of Realtors. It compares the average cost for 35 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale in 101 U.S. cities. You can check out this year’s trends — and how they stack up against previous annual reports.

The magazine even breaks down the most notable trends in remodeling this year, giving readers a look at projects that have the biggest gains in value versus cost so you can plan accordingly. How cool is that?
