Purchasing a home is a big deal. Whether it is your dream home or a fixer-upper, there can be plenty of ways to improve the style. While you might have gotten a deal on the market, are you happy with the way your home looks? Were they any deal breakers you sacrificed? If the answer is yes, then what is potentially stopping you from creating your ideal home and increasing property value? Here are tips on how to increase your property value:
Meet with a Professional
If you do not know where to begin with the process of improving the value of your home, call in a professional. An interior designer can offer insight on the best way to add value. While there are more expensive ways to increase values, interior designers also offer affordable options, such as paint, knobs, and furniture placement. Overall, they can assist will ensuring a home feels comfortable.
A cost-effective way to improve a home is through paint. A fresh paint coat can drastically turn a room around and make it look renovated. Paint colors to consider are neutrals. Neutrals tend to appeal more to others. The best part about painting is you can do it yourself. Simply run into a local hardware store to get started. Do not forget the rollers, brushes, and painter’s tape!
Nothing adds value to a home than a well-planned out front or backyard. Shrubs and colorful plants can immensely change a property. Depending on the area you live in, you will want to ensure that the plants you chose can survive in your region. If you can find a few low maintenance plants, you are all set. Adding in landscape lights can also improve the night time look of your home and highlight your backyard’s greatest features. While adding in the light landscape might be simple, it can be more difficult if a lawn is patchy and overgrown. These features can negatively impact the value of your home. Cut the lawn and the bushes. A messy lawn can turn into a well-maintained lawn in no time.
Improving the look of a bathroom can be costly, but it does not have to be. A bathroom can benefit from simple adjustments that are cost-effective. By simply purchasing a new vanity, switching out light fixtures, adding updated tile, and addressing old plumbing issues, a bathroom can be updated to a new modern look.
While replacing carpet is a bigger expense, it might be necessary. If your home flooring is stained or worn, it is time to consider new carpeting. If you plan to sell your home at some point, new buyers will be turned off by the look of stains. Since this can be more costly, start small. One room at a time can allow for the expense to fit your budget.
Similarly to bathrooms, improving the look of a kitchen does not have to be costly. Some think that in order for a kitchen to look nice, massive renovations need to be completed. A kitchen does not have to start all over to be nice. What is your vision for your kitchen? Is it a new sink? How about the kitchen cabinets? Granite? Lights? Whatever it might be, start slow. Small adjustments go a long way. By even simply painting cabinets and cupboards, a kitchen automatically changes.
