Think of the last gathering you had. Where did everyone inevitably end up? The kitchen is the room you've probably invested the least in, but if you put something into it now, you could reap big rewards later on.

Kitchen renovations often pay for themselves when an owner sells their home—you'll make back 75-100% of what you spent to paint, change out the cabinets and buy new appliances.
