Add a Fresh Coat of Paint

You’d be surprised how much adding a fresh coat of paint to the interior or exterior of your home can update the look. Take a look inside and look for any chipped, scuffed or worn areas and be prepared to add a coat of paint. Doorways and trim go through a lot, and it can quickly age a home. A bright white paint can update your space and give it a clean feel, or you can go for blends that mix and match with several styles.

Update Your Flooring with Timber Flooring

Adding timber flooring is a way to create eye-catching looks, but it also adds an element of low maintenance and convenience to every room you put it in. If you have darker rooms, brighten them up with a lighter flooring colour, or you can go bold and get a vibrant hue with reds or golden tones. Timber flooring is an excellent way to easily add a lot of value to your home because it can last for decades.

Add Kerb Appeal

Although updating the inside of your home is important, the exterior is just as important. Give your home a power wash to cut through the grime and cobwebs that built up over the years and can make your home look dingy. Consider repainting your trim or front door. Get a healthy yard, fix up your driveway and add a few landscaping trees, shrubs or flowers to add points of interest to your home. This all makes it more appealing to buyers when they go by your home.

Update Your Kitchen

Your kitchen is the focal point of your home for many people, and you want to update it a little at a time. You don’t have to do a complete overhaul. Instead, start by swapping out that stained sink that you’ve had forever for something more modern. Maybe you have an old microwave that you want to swap out, or you need to refinish your cabinets. Every small piece can boost your home’s overall value.

Install Energy-Efficient Appliances

A little energy efficiency goes a long way when it comes to boosting your home’s value. You can install an energy-efficient refrigerator, oven, microwave, washer and dryer quickly and easily. Not only do they make your space flow better, but they can add a modern twist to your decor. This higher upfront cost comes back to you in the form of reduced utility bills and a boost in your home’s value.

Install an HVAC System

If your home doesn’t have one already, consider adding in an HVAC system to keep the home cool in the winter and warm in the summer. For homes that already have one, schedule a routine cleaning or maintenance check to ensure that it’s running as it should be. Both large and small homes can benefit from having it.
