Are you always dreaming about what to do next to improve your home value? Many are daunted by the thought of a massive remodel, but it doesn’t have to be that big! There are simple and less expensive upgrades you can do in one weekend that add value to your home. It also helps to research what you want, talk to contractors or your local Home Depot to get realistic ideas, and consider the cost and time involved. Make sure you have the mindset that upgrading your home isn’t a sprint. It’s a marathon. Take the time to consider what you really want. When you do this necessary prep work, it eliminates mistakes, haphazard changes, frustrations and long, drawn out projects.
With winter on its way, it may not be so easy to upgrade the exterior of your house. But here are a few simple ideas to upgrade your house’s interior.
Look at your light fixtures.
This seems like a small detail, but replacing your boring, recessed lights with an eye-catching chandelier can really uplift a room. Or what about that $30 Target lamp in the corner that doesn’t offer much light anyways? Take the time to look for one you really like and that will match your needs. You might be surprised that it doesn’t cost that much more!
Consider your kitchen woes.
Does your kitchen frustrate you? The kitchen is where you spend most of your time and it is also the first area potential buyers like to look at. Don’t waste your energy on the unneeded stress of a less-than-adequate kitchen. Take the time to identify exactly what frustrates you and consider what can help that.
Maybe it’s the mismatched appliances. Did you know you can order new doors or face panels for your different appliances? And we found a little secret – many dishwasher panels are black on one side and white on the other!
A simple paint job can really do wonders to brighten up your kitchen. Or consider adding a new backsplash. Many home improvement stores teach classes on applying tile. It’s not as hard as you think!
Give a room a paint job.
We know it can be overwhelming to consider everything you want to do. Try to focus in on one room that you feel needs a facelift. It can be the powder bathroom, the guest bedroom or even the den. A very simple place to start is with painting the walls. This could be the perfect job for you to keep your remolding hands busy throughout the winter. Here are some things you can consider when you’re choosing the perfect color.
