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.
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Painting Outdated Kitchen Cabinets
One option is to pain outdated cabinets.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 Outdated cabinets will have a completely new look once painted a fresh white or gray color.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.
