If you recently purchased a new home with the intent to sell in the future, it's important to continuously invest and add value to the home. There are a number of small, budget friendly projects that can be completed to add value to your home. Making these small investments will pay off down the road when the time to sell has come. At Choice Properties, our expert real estate agents are eager to help you with both your home buying and selling needs. Consider these cheap upgrades to increase your home's value, preparing your home for the highest profit. 

10 Easy, Budget Friendly Ways to Add Value to Your Home

 

  • Paint Kitchen Cabinets. Having new cabinets installed can easily come with a price tag. Tackle this yourself by giving the cabinets a fresh paint job with a neutral color.   
  • Swap Out Hardware. When is the last time the kitchen and bathroom hardware was updated? Swap out old knobs and pulls for a clean, sleek pair. 
  • Devote Time to Outdoor Patio Space. The outdoor areas of a home are just as important as indoors. Incorporate nice landscaping, perhaps with a clean firepit and outdoor seating on the back patio. 
  • Replace Old Outlets. Wall outlets are often overlooked. Replace the old, washed out white outlets with a fresh face. 
  • Install Crown Molding. Adding crown molding is a great way to add value to a home. Contact your local contractor for an estimate and witness this small change greatly enhance the appearance of your home.
  • Focus on Curb Appeal. The walkways and front of your house is the first thing people will notice upon entering your home. Make sure it's welcoming by adding brick stairs, a safe railing, and a freshly painted front door.
  • Upgrade Landscaping. Does your front lawn look bare? Consider having a couple trees planted for shade and greenery. Bushes and year-long plants are great to add along flower beds.
  • Add Storage Solutions. If your bathroom is smaller than usual, get creative with permanent storage solutions. This could include floating shelves behind the toilet or above the sink.
  • Replace Lighting Fixtures. Don't overlook the power of lighting. Making small adjustments by replacing bulbs or fixtures can greatly enhance the appearance of a room.
  • Check Window Frames. An easy way to make windows appear larger is to add crown molding and new blinds to the window.

Kids will go through different phases as children progress from toddler to child, tween to teen. A bedroom becomes more than a place to sleep and play, it morphs into a space where homework is done, music is listened to (or created) and many other things happen with family and friends. It can be fun to create a space that serves all the necessary functions but is comfortable and inviting. Learn a few tips to minimize work on redecorating a kid's bedroom yet create a space any kid will love.

 

Consult Experts

The ultimate experts on what kids like are the kids themselves. Get kids involved in the design process and let them pick out certain elements such as colors and themes to make it fun. Some other tips include:

  • Including personal hobbies and interests

  • Focus on decorating based on child's tastes

  • Make sure the room fits both the child's needs and parent's desires

  • Basic color palettes that work well in any room can include black and white, pastels, neutral backdrops with accent colors and small doses of bright colors

 

Little Ones

Babies and toddlers do best with softer, more muted colors. Little ones enjoy soothing shades to fall asleep quickly and enjoy a peaceful slumber. Darker furniture can be a nice added element like chocolate-colored cribs or recliners. Colors help kids create and explore. Try some soft shades or deep blue and green depending on the youngster.

 

Tweens and Teens

Muted color palettes go over really well with older kids that incorporate a favorite color. Most color combinations include gray, lavender and deep purple for a more stylish approach, navy and white for preppy and muted colors for trying different looks with accent pieces in the room or on the walls.

 

Durability and Safety

It is easy to overlook durability and safety where younger kids are involved. The more durable and easy furniture and surfaces are to clean, the better. This includes durable paints where color-safe markers and crayons wash off easily. A safe environment begins by reviewing literature, safety recommendations on products and getting up to date on product recalls before making a huge purchase.

Overall, the look of a room will depend on the parents, kids and budget. A room does not need a lot of time and money put into it in order for it to look good. Try to find a compromise that works for everyone and, most of all, have fun with it.
