Home Improvement Projects that Make a Big Difference

Posted on 25. Feb, 2015 by in Home Improvement

Everyone wants to increase the property value of their home, but most people do not even know where to start. From indoor projects like kitchen backsplashes and bathroom faucet choices, to outdoor projects like home roofing options and front door replacements, here is a guide to a few of the projects that you should consider updating to increase the value of your home.

Outdoor Projects

Besides updating and maintaining your landscaping, there are also several other things you can do to the exterior of your home to ensure it looks nice, including:

  • Replacing roofing: You may think your roof is in great shape, but a closer look may reveal a few potential problems that would lower the overall value of the home. Visually inspect the inside and outside of your roof and look for any sagging areas, dark spots, signs of water damage and cracked or missing shingles. There are many home roofing options that can instantly provide a safer, cleaner and updated look to the exterior of your home.
  • Replacing front door: By simply updating the front door of your home you can add up great value to your home. It instantly increases your curb appeal and will make your home more modern.

Indoor Projects

To add significant value to your home, look at the state of your kitchen and bathrooms. They are most important to potential buyers.

  • Kitchen Backsplash: This is an easy DIY project that you can complete over a weekend, and it is fairly inexpensive. The impact is huge though, so consider updating the kitchen with a stylish or classic backsplash.
  • Bathroom Fixtures: If your bathrooms could use a little TLC then consider updating the faucets, light fixtures or even replacing the sinks. Find something modern and updated to give a whole new look to an older space.
  • Window Coverings: If you want to make a small change to your rooms — living room, dining room, bedrooms — you can replace your curtains or shades with shutters as a nice update.

There are many choices available to you when it comes to home roofing options or backsplash ideas. Do a little research before making the ultimate decision and get ready to watch your property value increase.
