Inexpensive Home Improvements

 

When most people think of home improvements they think of those expensive renovation projects that can drastically increase the value of your home. However, even if you can’t afford those major home improvements there are some simple things you can do that will make your home more comfortable and attractive without breaking the bank or emptying your savings account.

Here are a few cosmetic changes that you can easily make that will add comfort to your home for your family and visual appeal for potential buyers.

Paint is relatively inexpensive and can make any room look fresh and new without costing a lot of money. By simply adding a new coat of paint to those rooms in your house you give your home a bright appeal that will be noticed by potential buyers or can be enjoyed by your family.

One of the secrets of selling a house for an increased value is by making your entire home visual appealing to prospective buyers. By setting the stage so to speak, you can often increase your home’s value by hundreds of dollars by small home improvements that in the end are not even going to part of the sale.

Choosing the right window treatments for example can improve the overall appeal of your home and make it more attractive to buyers. You want to use window treatments that catch the eye and make your home look as open and as sunny as possible. For example, using sheer curtains at large picture windows or sliding doors will let the sunlight in while still providing a sense of privacy. White sheer can lighten a dark paneled room while alternating white and colored sheers at a large window can add dramatic touch to any room.

Valances are also a great touch to use on windows that are either long and narrow or simply to small for a regular curtain to look right or to let in much light. Valances are made from a variety of materials including wood so you can find the right balance for your windows.

Using throw pillows and area rugs can also give your home a more distinct look and although these items may only be temporary the increase the visual appeal for the potential buyer and let’s begin to think of the possibilities of their own decorating talents.

While these little home improvements are mostly cosmetic in nature you should never under estimate how increasing the visual appeal of your home inside and out can affect your home’s value at least in the eyes of potential buyers.
