Tricks to Stage Your Home For Less

If you are ready to put your home on the market, you already know that how it looks can make a significant difference in the sales price. If you are on a budget and don’t want to hire a professional stager, there are still some changes you can make which will create a big impact.

• Declutter; pack up extra “everything.” Remove anything you don’t absolutely need from every room, closet and cupboard. A cluttered closet looks small and uninviting.

• Replace curtains, bedding and towels with light neutral colors to make the room look larger and bright • Paint a room or two with modern colors

• Store furniture to make the room look larger

• Stage the kitchen with wine and fruit. Skip the fake table setting and create an image of an intimate meal with a nice bottle of wine. The key to staging is to edit, edit, edit. A small investment in a few storage tubs filled with books, clothes, pictures and anything unnecessary will go a long way and very inexpensive.

3 Easy Projects to Add Value to Your Home

diy header

There are many ways to add value to your home, but most ideas end up being major projects that are too expensive and time-consuming. Finding easy projects to add value to your home will provide you with a new look and feel as well as more equity in your home. Read on to see a few simple ideas you can do that are affordable and well worth your time and effort.

Painting Outdated Kitchen Cabinets

One option is to pain outdated cabinets. A complete kitchen cabinet redo can be expensive and time-consuming. Painting cabinets can take a few days, but the result is just as stunning. Outdated cabinets will have a completely new look once painted a fresh white or gray color.

Adding a Cool Feature

A new feature in the home always adds value, especially if you choose something that is on trend. A barn door is a perfect way to add a cool new touch to the home. Go with a traditional option found at your local hardware store, or shop for a door at a vintage store for that true farmhouse feel.

Replacing Old Counters

Another idea is to replace old countertops with quartz or granite. This will add value to your home and create a completely new look in the home.
