When it comes to modernizing their investment, it's important to understand the ARV and current market rates so they don't over upgrade. This is especially important also, if the upgraded property is to be rented. The upgrades being implemented must be appropriate for market rents in the area in order to maximize their ROI.
The importance of maintaining real property cannot be overstated.

For Resale or Rental?
When flipping a property for capital gains, or rehabbing for rental; it is important to understand that improvements must be considered differently for both.
A good approach to renovating a rental is to have a real estate agent provide comparison properties in the area with similar value. See how much they're renting for, and what's inside. A decent goal would be to meet or slightly beat, the value provided by the higher rents so that your clients also can gather similar income without adding more expenses than necessary.
On a flip, also receive comparison's for the targeted After Repair Value. This should greatly assist in the decision making process for such things as whether or not granite or laminate counter-top would be the best approach for the area the property is located in, or how much tiling should be expected in the bathrooms, etc.
Before the improvement process however, all necessary repairs should be made a priority!

Today, there are many manufacturers that provide products that need to be put together.
This allows companies to save warehouse and freight space.
However, the end product is dependent upon the ability of the consumer to follow their instructions and competently install their provided, necessary hardware.
It is important to realize that several items requiring assembly have safety risks if not installed properly. Items like bunk beds or gym equipment for example, must be assemble in a manner that will most avoid failure and prevent a serious injury.

TV Mounting can be accomplished in varying ways.
They can suspend from the ceiling, mount to different wall surfaces or even a self supporting home entertainment unit.
