Weekend DIY Projects to Improve Home Value
If you’ve just moved into your first home, there are probably a lot of fixes you want to do. But how do you choose which ones to do first? It’s probably a good idea to start with the ones that will add value to your home. So here are a few weekend DIY projects to improve home value.
- Replace Worn Carpets
- Spruce up Your Front Porch
- Install Bead Board
- Install a New Faucet
- Get New Hardware
- Redo Your Backsplash
- Switch to Energy-Saving Windows
No one wants to live with old carpet that has mysterious stains and spots. So replacing the carpet will not only increase value to your home, but it will ensure that the carpet is actually clean. If you want to add even more value to your home, add in hardwood floors or tile instead. It’s easy to clean and you can put an area rug over it if you want the comfort of carpet.
You can spruce up your entrance by painting your front door, adding a bench, planting some flowers, and adding lighting. All of these things will brighten up your porch and make it more inviting.
Beadboard adds texture to your walls. This can be done in bedrooms, living rooms, offices, bathrooms, or kitchens, basically, any room in your house could use some beadboard (just don’t overdo it). Any of these places will add value to your home.
New faucets have multiple benefits. They provide better water pressure and you can make all the finishes the same throughout the house.
Getting new hardware for your kitchen cabinets and drawers can completely restore your kitchen. It’s a small, cheap update that makes your kitchen look newer and can be done quickly.
Redoing your kitchen backsplash also updates your kitchen quickly. There are lots of different types of backsplashes such as tile, wood, or beadboard. You can make it stand out with a popping color or let it blend in with the rest of kitchen. It all depends on your style.
This one might take more time than a weekend but your energy bill will be much lower. Energy saving windows keep out the cold and heat making your heater or AC work less. New windows also brighten up an old home.
