It doesn’t take a major investment to make your house look brand new. With a few hours work and a quick run to your local home improvement store, you can add hundreds — even thousands — of dollars to your overall home value.
Keep reading to see a roundup of cheap home improvement projects that are easy to do yourself.
Paint the Front Door
Painting your front door is one of the easiest ways to boost your house’s curb appeal. For under $100, you can give your front door a brand new vibe — and possibly add thousands of dollars to your home’s value in the process.
Revamp an Old Garage Door
On the subject of doors, another popular option that can significantly increase your home’s value is a simple garage door paint job. Invest in some quality exterior paint and add a few updated pieces of decorative hardware, like faux hinges, to give your garage door an entirely new look.
Add New Flooring
If you’re seeking another easy update, look down. Outdated flooring and dingy carpets detract from your home, so give your floorboards a new look and reap the nice return. Opt for Pergo or laminate flooring rather than carpet — just don’t fall in love with a renovation that will hurt your home’s value.
Change Light Switches to Dimmer Switches
This option not only provides great resale value, but it also benefits your bottom line. By adding revamped dimmer switches — especially ones with motion sensors — you’ll make your home more energy-efficient, which will only broaden the appeal for your home when you sell it.
