You probably already know that remodeling your home can significantly increase its value. But did you know there are plenty of DIY projects you can undertake to get the same results? Specific tasks are easier and more affordable than others, but you can make many upgrades without going into debt or emptying your life savings.
A little commitment goes a long way, especially with a DIY attitude! Here are a few ways to update your home for results you’ll appreciate.
A Trendy Color Upgrade
Walls help create a massive part of your interior decor, but it’s also one of the easier surfaces to take on wear. Fingerprints, scratches, and fading are all issues that can reduce the appeal of your decor. But it’s also one of the easiest to revamp without hiring professional contractors.
Choosing a trending color or wallpaper can change the room’s visual appeal and ambiance, adding interest and eye-catching options for potential home buyers.
Improving color schemes can mean as much outdoors as indoors, so take a closer look at your porch or patio railing, shutters, overhangs, and soffits. While these might not be what home buyers look at first, it’s just as important.
Treat Your Windows
Window treatments might not be a stand-out feature that draws the eye when you enter a room. But it can undoubtedly pair with the rest of your decor and design to help create a finished look. Opt for fabrics, materials, and features that take things up a notch!
If you’ve never considered window treatments, this is a great time to introduce yourself to drapes, blinds, or plantation shutters. Don’t forget to ask about automated features, which can increase your home’s worth even more.
Don’t forget that curtain rods and pull-backs are also a big part of this space. Adding the right touch will complement the room scheme and keep things neat and fresh.
Kitchen and Bathroom Fixtures
Cheap, generic, or dated fixtures can mar any appearance. But when you have these in places that see extensive use throughout the day, it makes a more significant impact than you might think. For a reasonable budget, you can upgrade faucets, drawer and cabinet pulls, shower heads, and towel bars for results that command attention.
Other pieces can also be grouped here, including ceiling fans, ceiling light covers, door knobs, and door knockers. All these little features can add up to a significant home value increase, so take careful inventory around your home.
Some upgrades can even increase yearly energy savings, including shower heads, faucets, water heaters, and refrigerators. Be sure to ask how to take advantage of upgrades that increase savings over time.
Curb Appeal Matters
When it comes to sprucing up your home, the exterior features are often referred to as curb appeal, and yes, it matters. Small upgrades such as a new front door or doormat can easily impress.
Power washing goes a long way, breathing new life into your exterior walls, driveway, walkway, and patio spaces. If you want to go further, consider upgrading your landscaping, such as new plants, shrubs, or hardscaping features that capture attention.
Clean gutters not only look great and allow proper functionality, but it decreases situations that can cause foundational issues and water damage. With just a bit of attention, you’ll see less mold, mildew, and wood degradation in this outdoor space.
