Easy Improvements to Increase your Home Value and Enjoyment

Upgrade your home to create perfect bliss

Apply a fresh coat of paint

Paint refreshes the appearance of your home’s interior. Painting is a straightforward and inexpensive pursuit that requires just a few items, namely a couple of gallons of paint, rollers, tape, brushes, and drop cloths. Replace peeling, outdated wallpaper, and re-paint any unappealing walls due to dark hues or marks on the walls. You can also utilize paint to update cabinets, drawers, furniture, etc. Consider using light, neutral shades to make your space look more expansive and add re-sale value.

Beauty is in the details

The seemingly insignificant changes could transform your home’s look and how you feel about it. Make a list of inexpensive ways to boost your property’s worth. Whether you’re planning to sell or simply upgrade your space for your enjoyment, adding some personal touches will yield fantastic results. Consider the following when making small changes:

 

  • Tackle each room one at a time. The more you plan, the better the outcome.
  • Hire an electrician or a plumber to fix any leaky faucets or loose wires. 
  • Updating flooring only takes a couple of days and will benefit you and prospective homebuyers.
  • Deep clean your home. A pristine house is not just appealing to potential buyers, it will add to your quality of life! You’ll undoubtedly feel happier when you and your family are living in a clean and healthy environment. Make it a family activity by getting the kids involved to declutter and organize each space.

Boost curb appeal

Take a good, hard look at your home exterior and consider how its appearance makes you feel. Is your home inviting? Does it look rundown? Consider what you can do to improve your home’s curb appeal for your own appreciation along with that of prospective buyers. Here are some tips to make your home exterior look inviting:

 

  • Re-paint your door, add a charming wreath, or install new lights flanking the entryway for a welcoming feel.
  • Create a warm and cozy outdoor space by adding a patio furniture set or porch swing to your terrace. 
  • Highlight your beautiful home with a manicured green lawn.
  • Plant green shrubs or perennials, or put down fresh mulch to draw attention to specific parts of your garden area, such as your BBQ or patio furnishings.
  • Replace your worn-out fence with a composite, aluminum, or other maintenance-free option.
  • Add a water feature for a touch of whimsy, ranging from cascading ceramic bowls to a stunning koi pond with a waterfall. This can be as simple or extravagant as you desire.

Renovate your kitchen

They say that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Whether it is for your benefit or that of potential buyers, many small elements can increase your home’s value and create an inviting entertainment space for your guests.

 

  • Replace your kitchen faucet, cabinet handles, and lighting fixtures with a cohesive color scheme and material.
  • Upgrade your appliances that have seen better days, considering neutral colors like white and stainless steel. Matching appliances provide aesthetic appeal.
  • Install new flooring. Choose hardwood for elegance or opt for vinyl planks for easy upkeep.

Renovate your bathroom

Kitchens and bathrooms are essential rooms to address when upgrading your property to sell. Some easy ways to update your bathroom include:

 

  • Replacing the toilet seat, adding vanity cabinets, or replacing cabinet doors can make a big impact on your bathroom’s appearance.
  • Install new light fixtures to impress guests and add unique focal points.
  • Buy a new towel set, decorate with some candles, and add small details to create an intimate retreat where you, guests, or potential buyers can de-stress.
