Maximize the Value of Your Home
Four easy steps to create a more beautiful home and increase its value on a budget.
Looking to spruce up your home? There are a number of simple, budget-savvy solutions that can help make your home more beautiful while adding value to your property.
Here are a few ideas to get you ruminating (and renovating), as we look forward to spring:
Make an Entrance
It’s often said that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. And that can be especially true when it comes to the entryway of your home. Make the front door the centerpiece of your home’s curb appeal by repainting it a striking-yet-tasteful color or staining it for a more antique look. Add some updated porch lights, high-end hardware and some flowering plants in stylish urns to make guests feel warmly-welcomed.
Keep It Neutral
A fresh coat of paint will do wonders to help present your home in its best light. Consider earth tones such as gray or tan when considering a base color. And painting window and door trims, baseboards and crown molding in complementary colors can do wonders to brighten up a living space.
Transforming your backyard into an entertaining oasis is a great way to increase the value of your home while creating wonderful times with friends and family. All you’ll need to set the stage is a few pieces of good quality, inexpensive patio furniture, a grill, and some potted plants to fill in any extra space. Adding outdoor lighting like string lights or lanterns as an enchanting finishing touch allows you to enjoy your space even after the sun has set.
Highlight the best features of each area by making small changes, such as updating the lighting, or installing some new faucets, nozzles, mirrors, and cabinet doorknobs. These minor revisions can significantly elevate the ambiance of your kitchen or bath.
Try one or more of these fresh and frugal fixes to help brighten up your home! However, if you’re looking to make bigger changes to your home, with an addition or larger scale renovations to your kitchen or bathroom, consider a Home Equity Line of Credit from Leader Bank to finance costlier projects or consolidate debt.
