Upgrading your home can be a fun and simple way to increase its value. Not all home projects are complicated enterprises requiring the work of teams of professionals; on the contrary, there are plenty of small things that you can do over the course of a weekend that will increase your home’s value.
Landscaping is perhaps the simplest way to increase a home’s value as well as its curb appeal. Replacing a lawn with native plants, creating stone pathways, and constructing outdoor seating areas are all relatively simple ways to update your home’s exterior.
A new coat of interior paint can give a home new life. Playing with color trends can be immensely gratifying, but classic neutrals can also modernize a stale living space. Consider your new color(s) carefully and your results are sure to shine.
Kitchen and Bath
Bathroom and kitchen upgrades are arguably the most effective ways to increase the value of your house. For the truly handy, this can mean replacing cabinets, light fixtures, windows, and sinks. For those who are more comfortable with a pen than with a hammer, make sure to plan meticulously, giving yourself a clear picture of your expected outcome before you contract the job to a professional.
