The weekend is fast approaching, and it’s the perfect time to put in a little yard work or take on a home project. Which is why we’ve put together the top 4 ways you can boost your home’s value – all perfect projects to undertake over the weekend.
- Lighten Up: Nothing says outdated like run-of-the-mill recessed lighting. Consider upgrading your lights with new and modern ceiling fixtures. Another affordable way to improve the aesthetic of your ceiling fan is to buy replacement fan blades to update the look. You can do the same for any lamps in the home buy purchasing new shades.
- Curb Appeal: The exterior of your home is your first impression for buyers. It’s also an easy place to start! Rake leaves, trim shrubs and hedges, and invest in a little autumn décor. It’s the perfect time of year for pumpkins, horn-of-plenty, and mums to adorn your walkway.
- Maintenance: Without a lot of cash, you can improve your bathroom or kitchen or living room by fixing any leaky faucets, or replacing old discolored tile. For bathrooms, consider small upgrades like a new toilet seat or faucets. Shine and clean kitchen appliances, and consider investing in cost-effective updates.
- Brighten the View: A new coat of paint will freshen any room. Cool neutral colors in gray or blue tones are a current popular trend, and will help brighten your living space. Don’t forget to apply fresh coats (of white or whatever color they currently are) to your ceiling and trim!
There are so many cost-effective and do-it-yourself ways to help your home live up to its greatest potential. Remember to look at your house through a buyer’s eyes – see it as your want them to see it, and then allow yourself to have fun and be creative as you move through the restoration process.
