Increase the Value of Your Home is Easy With These Steps!
It’s amazing how much the smallest touches can increase the value of your home! One of the greatest parts is that you don’t always have to spend a lot of money to improve your house; you just have to be willing to put in a little elbow grease. The DIY projects below are inexpensive ways to brighten up your home while also adding value to your biggest investment.
Update with Paint
A new coat of paint can do wonders for both the look and value of your house. Plus, adding a fresh coat of paint is one of the least expensive ways of updating your home’s appearance and increasing its worth. Stick with neutral colors since these will be the most appealing to potential homebuyers. Remove any outdated, tacky wallpaper and plan on giving your walls a fresh coat of paint. While you’re at it, consider updating your doors and kitchen cabinets.
Add Crown Molding
This often-overlooked DIY project can add real value to your home. It’s not difficult to install crown moldings, although you will need to make sure that you have the right tools for the job—like a nail gun and miter saw. Purchase decorative pieces of wood from a hardware store and size them for the room. Crown moldings add a touch of elegance no matter where they are.
Replace Your Fixtures
It’s the simple things that make all the difference. Replace your curtain rods, doorknobs, outlet covers, lights, and other fixtures with newer versions that match or improve the ambiance of the room. You can do the same thing with your bathroom fixtures to update that space. Remember—you don’t have to spend much to add a great deal of value!
Change Up Your Window Treatments
Ugly blinds and cheap curtains are the enemies of the stylish homeowner. Think wood blinds and consider investing in a nice set of custom drapes. Let the light shine in and entice prospective buyers with a dose of tasteful style.
Get New Hardware
Instead of replacing your cabinets and drawers, add value simply by updating their knobs and handles. These might seem like small changes, but they can add volumes when it comes to the worth and beauty of your home.
Replace Your Front Door
We can’t put enough emphasis on curb appeal. A new front door welcomes potential buyers into your home with grace. If you’re not able to spring for a new door, at least add a coat of glossy paint in a tasteful accent color to your current door. Don’t forget to add a new welcome mat to complete your updated entry!
