We observed more people than ever before embark on DIY projects in 2020. The onset of a pandemic that left millions of people isolated in their houses, was the perfect opportunity to get started on the projects they’d been putting off for years, all while improving their home’s appeal for a future sale and raising its value. Here we have some DIY ideas to add value to your home.
A fresh coat of paint can do wonders in giving your home a newer, fresher feel. It conceals obvious imperfections such as cracks, marks, blemishes, and other faults. Make sure you choose hues that aren’t too extravagant, but those that will last for a long period. Even if your creative self is persuading you that bright pink is the hottest new fashion trend, it’s probably advisable to err on the side of caution and go with a more conservative paint color.
In today’s market, nobody wants to buy a house that requires a lot of working on. Having a house that requires fixing reduces its value and attracts budget buyers. One of the best things you can do to increase the value of your property is to slowly work through the repairs in the house. Some things to look out for are:
- Faulty electrical systems
- Appliances that are out of date
- Toilets that leak
- Roof that is leaking or sagging
- Doors that have been dented and holes in the walls
- HVAC system that isn’t working
- Windows and doors that don’t fit properly
Revamp your bathroom
The quality of your bathroom can make or break your home’s sale. If it’s old, obsolete, or broken, the buyer is likely to make a lower offer or decline the sale entirely. After all, the bathroom is an important part of every home, and it may have a significant impact on the overall atmosphere and style of the home.
The good news is that you don’t have to fully gut the space and start from scratch. Just focus on the essentials, such as repairing leaks, checking water pressure and cleaning fixings. If you want bonus points, add some luxury amenities such as a jet spray, bidet or warm spa lighting. Shower speakers are also a cheap option that can add a bougie touch to your bathroom and serve as a selling point.
