Six DIY Projects That Will Add Value to Your Home

June 25, 2019

Add Value to Your Home

Are you ready to sell your house and want to increase its value? Talisman Rentals has rounded up 6 DIY jobs that will boost the price you may be able to get for your property:

1.)  Paint the Kitchen Cabinetry

Upgrading kitchen cabinetry can be quite expensive. However, a couple of coats of paint can make outdated kitchen cabinets look much more modern and cleaner.

2.)  Change the Kitchen Cabinet Handles

Swapping out old or generic kitchen cabinet handles can make a kitchen look completely different. Many wholesalers sell kitchen cabinet handles that can fit on both mass-produced as well as custom-made cabinetry.

3.)  Improve Outdoor Living Spaces

Create a sense of another living space outdoors by adding a few chairs and a table to a porch or garden. Even if it’s small, this tactic can create the impression that there is more livable area on the property.

4.)  Get New Electrical Outlets and Light Switch Plates

Electrical outlets and light switch plates become dirty from use over time. However, they are inexpensive to replace. Take this DIY hack one step further and paint the outlets and light switch plates the same color as the walls so that they disappear into the room’s décor.

5.)  Boost the Home’s Curb Appeal

The front of your house is the first thing potential buyers will see. So, make sure it is stately and welcoming. Why not add a pot of flowers to the porch and paint the door?

6.)  Focus on the Landscaping

According to Century 21 Real Estate, landscaping can add between 7% to 15% to a home’s value, and a good first impression can increase a home’s value up to 27%. While improving the landscaping can be a more significant expense, research shows that there is a good return on investment when done properly.
