Looking to put your home on the market and want to get the best price possible? Or, simply want to give your new abode a little extra something-something? These five home improvement options pack a punch without breaking the bank.
When you’re considering which room is the best investment, look no further than the kitchen. Of course, you won’t want to do anything too specialized if you’re planning to put your home on the market. (Sorry country music fans. A tiled mural of Tim McGraw just isn’t going to do it for most folks.) But, new kitchen appliances can certainly be a good place to start. So can new kitchen countertops, and a refresh on those old cabinets.
Few things make your house feel more dated than old, worn-out carpet. Breathe new life into your home with a welcoming carpet that’s free of grime.
Painting is like giving your home a face-lift. A few cans combined with a little elbow grease and you have yourself a brand new look. If you’re unsure about color palates, just keep it neutral. This is especially important if you are putting your home on the market. It will allow your home to appeal to a wider variety of prospective buyers.
The Outdoor Living Space
While it’d be nice to have a Fairy Godmother who can waive a few extra square feet of space into your home, none of us live in a Disney movie. Extend your home by creating an outdoor living space you and your family will enjoy. Make it a multi-season spot with the addition of a fire pit or outdoor heater.
Hang a Mirror (or Two)
Another way to make your home feel larger is with mirrors. They visually expand your space. For maximum appeal, be sure to find a unique frame that compliment your existing décor.
