Redo Your Front Door

Add some fresh paint to your front door. A bold hue that complements the exterior and expresses some personality is exactly what to reach for.

Rejuvenate Your Backyard Shed

If you have a backyard shed, tidy it up, add a fresh coat of paint, and toss on a few decorative accents inside. When you renew its appearance and would-be buyers have a glance at the backyard, it’s sure to make an impression.

Make Your Ceiling Unique

Ceilings are often overlooked. Infuse some drama into a room by incorporating a bold paint pattern, eye-catching wallpaper, wood panelling, or intricate moulding. In the right context, a statement ceiling really works.

Refinish Your Hardwood Flooring

If you have hardwood flooring, refinish them to increase your perceived home value. If you don’t, refinishing your floors or replacing worn carpeting is strongly recommended.

Add A Faux Fireplace To Your Living Room

A faux fireplace is cozy, inviting, and really warms up the main living room. Choose a design that complements your home’s style and consider other ways to decorate the room to make it feel lively.

Update Dated Light Fixtures

Swap out old, uninspiring light fixtures for trendy, modern fixtures that add ambiance and style to your space. This is particularly important in the kitchen, bathrooms, and bedrooms, but can also apply to hallways and your living room.

Fine-Tune Your Landscaping

The outside of your home is important. A little low-effort improvement to its curb appeal can mean a lot. Remove plants or trees that don’t look like they’re doing well. Clear weeds. Edge sidewalks and driveways. Trim trees and bushes. Fertilize the yard. That’s it!

Add Crown Moulding

Crown moulding elevates a room. It’s an architectural detail that many love and will only work to infuse charm into your home.

Complete A Fast Bathroom Remodel

A quick bathroom remodel will earn you major points with buyers. Re-caulk the tub. Replace the vanity if it’s dated. Change the shower head. Replace the faucet. These four things will give your bathroom an entirely new look.

Stage Your Home

Lastly, for the best sales price possible, before you sell your house, connect with a real estate agent skilled in staging. When you stage your home, you present it in its best light and expand its appeal. It costs very little to do and could net you a lot more from an inspired homebuyer.
