You can improve your home value without breaking the bank by completing one or more inexpensive updates. Whether looking to sell your home or just wanting to make it more enjoyable to live in, these updates can help you get the most out of one of the largest investments you will ever make. Here's a couple ideas any homeowner can tackle:
One of the quickest/simplest ways to improve your home's value inexpensively is to give the interior a fresh coat of paint. A new paint job can make rooms look brighter and more inviting. Painting can also help to hide any imperfections on the walls and ceilings. If you are looking to make a bigger impact, paint your home's exterior and front door as well. This will give it a more modern look and can help to increase its curb appeal.
Another great way to update your home and improve your home's worth is to update your fixtures and light fixtures. If you have outdated fixtures in your home, especially older brass fixtures, update them to a more trending look such as brushed nickel. Or update them to bronze fixtures which have a timeless feel to them. Update your faucets, doorknobs, hinges, strike plates, cabinet knobs and handles, vent covers, and everything else that has the old finish. Replacing outdated light fixtures with modern, more energy-efficient ones can make a big difference as well. Not only will it look better, but it can also help to reduce your monthly energy bills.
Upgrading your landscaping is another inexpensive fix for growing your home value. Get your lawn in tip-top shape. Clear out weeds and old brush from your landscaping beds. Add new plants, trees and bushes to your landscaping beds. Add flowering perennials and annuals which will add pops of color and vibrancy to your beds. This can create a more inviting look and can also help to increase its curb appeal. If you are looking for a more substantial upgrade, consider installing a patio or deck. You can do this by not spending too much money. Work to set your budget. This can provide you with a great outdoor living space which will help to increase your home's worth.
Replacing old carpeting with new carpeting or even hardwood or tile flooring can give your home a more modern look and can help to increase its value. Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is very on trend right now and it is not as expensive as hardwood flooring or some of the more expensive tiles.
