Most homeowners are interested in boosting the value of their home and owning a beautiful property. Although you may not want to spend the money to make improvements, there are inexpensive projects that will allow you to reap the reward when it’s time to sell. When you want to increase your home value, there are a few cheap home improvements that will attract more buyers.
1. Redesign the Kitchen
The kitchen is the most important room of the home where the residents spend a significant amount of time. Although you may not want to break walls or gut the kitchen, you can make subtle changes that transform the overall setting. Consider replacing the entire faucet set for a few hundred dollars and also replace outdated light fixtures with new energy-efficient pieces.
Instead of replacing all of the cabinets, you can change their appearance by resanding the surface and restaining the wood. If you want to brighten up the kitchen, consider repainting the cabinets with a bright color shade. Complete the project by adding new brass or silver pulls and handles that look modern and luxe.
2. Add More Storage
Many homeowners underestimate the value of storage that is available in the home. If you live in an older house, you may have a lack of closet space. You can measure and redesign the closets online or use kits that are available at home improvement stores. Your home will look more organized and customized with built-in storage that prevents clutter from accumulating in the rooms. You can also add built-in storage options in the garage to create a space that is streamlined and functional.
Find a drill that is comfortable to use as you install the cabinets and shelves. You can also utilize vertical space and hang a pegboard to store tools above your workbench. You’ll free up space on the garage floor and can enjoy the convenience of finding what you need.
3. Increase the Curb Appeal
The first impression that you make on buyers is determined by the condition of your yard. Your home’s curb appeal should be beautiful and contemporary to make it stand out in the neighborhood. Add potted plants and flowers on the front porch to make the home look inviting. You can also add additional features that include a water fountain in the yard or a swing on the front porch when you want extra charm without spending a lot.
The front door should also be in good condition because it’s the focal point of the property. Consider painting it to have a pop of color that stands out. You can consider painting the door red, yellow, and even black to make the home look modern.
It’s also important to clean out the gutters and hire a professional to trim the trees. Installing a fence, power washing the driveway, and adding a fresh coat of paint on the home will also brighten up the property.
4. Redesign the Bathrooms
The condition of the bathrooms significantly influences the value of the home and should look updated. Install a new toilet seat and pedestal sink, which you can do yourself without hiring a professional. You can also regrout the tile to make the bathtub or shower look new again. The lighting that is used should be modern and updated to increase the appeal of the space. Install light sconces on each side of the bathroom mirror or add a dramatic chandelier overhead. Repainting the walls or adding wallpaper can also increase the bathroom’s aesthetics.
5. Invent a New Room
Instead of spending thousands of dollars building a new room, you can make use of the space that you already have on the property. Transform an old den or an unused bedroom to have it serve a purpose. Talk to a real estate agent about the most desirable types of spaces in residential buildings that buyers are looking for on the market. Consider turning the attic into a gym or using an extra bedroom as a home office. Having an extra room that serves a purpose will make your home stand out on the market and will allow the property to appeal to more buyers.
