Increase Your Home’s Value with 4 Easy Renovations
Investing in your home can bring you benefits both now and later. Not only does keeping your home up-to-date make it safer and more convenient to live in, but a quick do-it-yourself renovation can also increase your home’s value! By increasing the value of your house, you’ll set yourself up to sell it at a higher price point in the future. Here are 4 easy home renovations to enhance your home and bring its value up a notch.
Paint the interior.
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your home! Do you have any dark rooms lacking natural light? How about scuffed walls or peeling paint? Painting the interior of your home can brighten up dark rooms, fix scuffed walls, and drastically improve friend, family, and buyer impressions.
We recommend sticking with neutral colors that appeal to a wide range of people. Painting is a cost-effective way to give your home a clean, updated look. You can easily do it yourself or hire local experts like Two Dudes Painting to get the job done. Phillips Paint & Decorating Center and Grauer’s Paint & Decorating are just two of many great Lancaster stores selling interior paint.
Update your lighting.
When was the last time you updated your lighting fixtures? If you have any eyesores, consider updating them with more modern lighting arrangements like the ones that Capital Lighting Fixtures carries. Add a ceiling fan or a chandelier to elevate a room’s decor! Brightening up your home can also be achieved by simply opening up any windows that are blocked by furniture, cleaning your skylights, or getting rid of dark curtains that prevent light from entering a room.
Refinish your cabinets.
Most people spend lots of time in the kitchen, which means that having cabinets that are easy on the eyes is essential. Consider sanding then staining or painting your kitchen cabinets! Your kitchen cabinetry occupies a lot of visible space in a regularly used room, and refinishing your cabinets can take your kitchen to an entirely new level of style. Head to True Value to consider your finish options, or have a local company like Cedars Woodworking help you out.
Beautify your bathroom.
Similar to your kitchen, your bathroom is another room that residents and visitors alike see often. To give it a refresh, consider changing the faucet, handles, knobs, towel racks, or vanity! There are plenty of bathroom fixtures that can easily be replaced or beautified. Upgrading things like knobs and handles can be as simple as using a screwdriver to switch the old out for the new.
