If you are considering making improvements to your home, think towards the future with changes that will appeal to buyers. Projects to focus on are the kitchen, bathrooms, floors and paint. Here are seven improvement ideas to consider:
One – Lighting
Make rooms light and bright. Add lighting under cabinets in your kitchen to make the room look more inviting. Consider recessed lighting.
Two – Kitchen
If you are not up to a large renovation, one improvement to consider is replacing older appliances such as the dishwasher and refrigerator. If the cabinets are not appealing, consider sanding and painting them.
Three – Closets
Buyers want walk-in closets. If you cannot make your closet larger be sure to make it look as spacious as possible when selling.
Four – Bathroom
Recaulk the tub. (Use caulk-be-gone to get rid of the old caulk. Fill the bathtub with water after you have caulked to stretch it while it dries.) If you have old wallpaper in the bathroom, remove it and paint the walls. Old shower doors should be removed or replaced.
Five – Paint
Fresh paint makes a big difference in rooms. Use neutral colors if you plan to sell. Paint the trim with high-gloss white paint.
Six – Moldings
Details, like moldings, add charm and character to rooms.
Seven – Floors
Hardwood floors are very popular with costs ranging from $3-$8 per square foot. (Add another $3 per square foot for professional installation.) If you have carpet, have it professionally cleaned.
