In many cases, just a small project can make a huge different to a home’s value. If you are actually reselling your home, try a few small-budget improvements. A bright and colorful coat of paint can add visual interest to any room or exterior. Such a simple and inexpensive upgrade on your end can add an enormous amount of value when selling.
Add some sophistication and class to your living space by building a unique addition. Something like a built in book shelf for the library, or a wine cellar are great ideas. It will seem impressive to your guests and also to future homeowners, who may be interested in buying your property.
Repainting a porch may be necessary. The paint you use should be high-quality and formulated for exterior use. The new paint should have the same base, be it oil or latex, that the existing paint does. Oil-based paint should be used for trim, but not on walking surfaces. It does last longer but can get slippery.
Update your flooring and replace old carpet. You can choose to do the work yourself, or most flooring companies can install the flooring of your choice (either carpet, tile, hardwoods, or other) in a short amount of time, generally about one day.
Have you tried everything to fix your squeaky door? If so, then you might need another door hinge. You can pick up this piece of hardware in a big box retailer. All you need to is attach each section to your door and the frame of your wall. Line up the two sides of the hinge and put the pins back in.
Don’t buy furniture that has busy prints. If you do, you will have the challenge of coordinating your home to that pattern until you recover or discard the items of furnishing. Purchase furniture in solid colors and dress them up with your accessories. If you want patterns, use pillows and throw blankets to have patterns but also design control.
