Whether you are trying to sell your home or just give it a new look, you can fix up any property quickly by looking to a few key areas. Here are some tips to keep in mind when planning your next home project.
1. Reinvent your kitchen cabinets. Your kitchen plays a major role in establishing your home’s value, and if you are looking for a way to quickly add class and style, consider upgrading your cabinetry.
If you don’t have the money to completely replace your cabinets, consider refacing them. Refacing is a much less expensive option that works well if you already have quality cabinetry. You might also consider replacing your cabinets’ hardware. Look online for an affordable cabinet door mart to keep your costs in check.
2. Redo your bathroom floors. If you have tile bathroom floors, you can often replace them at a fairly low cost. Tiling is manageable work for any homeowner, so you should be able to handle the job if you aren’t especially handy, but make sure to lie an even amount of tile grout. Measure twice and buy a bit of extra tile for corner work.
3. Check the doors. Doors make a big difference in your heating and cooling bills. They also contribute greatly to your home’s aesthetics, so check each door in your home and consider making some improvements.
First, consider functionality. If your doors squeak or jam when they open and close, you probably need to readjust the frames or even replace the doors entirely. If they have cracks or allow air to pass through, they might easily contribute to high home energy bills. You should also look at each door to see whether repainting or refinishing would provide enough of a visual boost.
Make a list of the improvements you need in your home and work through them one at a time. By taking on small projects regularly, you can easily make dramatic improvements over the course of a few months.
