Today we are excited to share with you six different ways that you can upgrade the look and feel of your home. Even if you aren’t selling, these tips will help you improve your home while you’re still living in it. It’s never too early to be prepared. Here are our tips:
If you’re not using something, find a place for it. Whether it is inside or outside of the home, cut down on your clutter. This includes personal items, family photos, and any storage.
2. Power wash the exterior of your home. Eliminate any grunge you have on your driveway, your siding, or your vents can be incredibly helpful when home buyers do a drive-by of your home. If they don’t like what they see right off the bat (which is the exterior of your home), then you have lost your chance to sell.
3. Amp up your curb appeal.
Think about getting a power washer out, re-staining your front porch or re-painting your front door.
4. Add or rearrange lighting.
Dark rooms feel smaller than ones with bright, neutral tones and natural light.
5. Upgrade your hardware.
Whether it be with new kitchen cabinets, doors, or faucets, upgrading your hardware gives the home a fresh feeling, and definitely increases your value.
6. Focus on your decor.
Maybe you’ve mismatched decor or things aren’t cohesive. Making sure they are can go a long way in terms of how buyers view your home.
