Looking for ways to improve the value of your home without spending an
arm and a leg in the process? Whether you are preparing to list your property
on the market or simply wish to spruce up your home for your own personal
enjoyment, the following seven strategies can allow you to maximize your
home’s value on a reasonable budget.
Kitchen facelift: The kitchen is considered the heart of the home and is often one of the
most noticeable features for potential buyers. For just a few hundred
dollars, you can replace your kitchen faucet, add decorative handles to
your cabinets, and replace old light fixtures with modern, energy-efficient
options. If you have a little extra cash to spare, look into having your
cabinets resurfaced to give them a like-new look.
Bathroom update: Aside from the kitchen, a home’s bathrooms are usually the most
important areas to update. Replacing a toilet seat, installing vinyl flooring,
re-grouting worn tile, and installing pedestal sinks are all simple ways
to brighten up the appearance of your home’s restroom without spending
a ton of money.
Repurposing a den: Have a den or an unused room? In many cases, adding a closet to the room
is all you need for it to be considered another bedroom – a feature
which can add considerable value to your home. In many cases, a custom
closet can be added for less than $2,000.
Improve your storage: Many older homes are plagued with storage problems and a general lack
of available closet space. Adding affordable, DIY wire and laminate closet
systems to bedrooms, pantries, and even garages can help add function
to rooms and make them appear more customized to buyers.
Check your carpeting: The condition of a home’s carpeting is another feature that can
greatly contribute to its overall cleanliness. If your carpet has seen
better days, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning company or
covering problem areas with decorative area rugs.
Update your lighting: Installing an eye-catching chandelier or attractive light fixture can
help to bring life to an otherwise bland-looking room. Replacing ceiling
fan blades with new, clean blades can also be a good option.
Improve your curb appeal: While it may seem obvious, your home’s exterior appearance from
the street can leave a lasting impression on a potential buyer. Having
a nicely mowed lawn, well-kept shrubs, and a clean walkway to the door
can do wonders to create a welcoming aesthetic.
