1. Start with an outside paint job

Notes:

  • Is your home looking a little worse for wear? A lick of paint will freshen it up in no time.
  • Consider hiring a professional so that you don’t end up making even more of a mess. It will cost around $1,000 to paint your home but it will seriously increase the value.
  • Choose a neutral color rather than one which is in season now but could soon go out of style again.

2. Update your old garage door

Notes:

  • If you’ve never upgraded your garage door, it’s time to do so now. Once your home is looking beautiful with a new, modern paint job, it’s time for a new door.
  • By choosing something sleek and modern, you’ll increase the appeal of your home. Opt for materials that won’t wear or go out of style quickly such as wood or metal.
  • You may also choose to upgrade your front door too. But, this isn’t as easy to see from the sidewalk and may simply benefit from a new coat of paint.

3. Replace old windows

Notes:

  • If your windows are looking worn out, are showing signs of any warping, or are over 20 years old, then it’s time to replace them. But, did you know that new windows will also increase your home’s value? This makes buying new windows a good investment.
  • You’ll also see a reduction in your energy bills if you buy insulated windows.

4. Always look after your garden

Notes:

  • Even if you absolutely hate gardening, it’s a surefire way to improve your home’s curb appeal. It’s time to pull out the gardening tools and learn a little about plants.
  • At the very least, you should be regularly cutting your grass. To go the extra mile, you can very easily find plants that neighbors are throwing away by asking around or looking at local Facebook groups.
  • After nurturing these plants, you’ll create a beautiful garden. Alternatively, why not hire a gardener who can come in and make your home look more presentable and appealing?

7. Repaint your interiors

Notes:

  • As well as painting the outside of your house, it’s important to also repaint your interiors. Choose a neutral color that looks clean and bright.
  • You can either repaint your interiors alone (after learning how to from YouTube) or you can hire a professional who will do the job right.
  • Always look for someone who comes highly reviewed and who can offer you a quote for the entire job, not just per hour.

9. Paint the kitchen cupboards

Notes:

  • In your kitchen, you should also paint the cupboards in order to refresh the entire room. Again, choosing a color that is neutral will add value to your property.
  • It isn’t easy painting cupboard doors as it requires time and patience, but it can be done for cheap. Start by choosing a beautiful color and make sure you have enough paint so that you don’t run out midway!
  • Next, take off all of the doors and make sure you know how to put them back together again. Developing a system so that you know which doors go with which cupboards is very important.
  • Don’t forget to remove the door handles and clean the doors as thoroughly as possible. Sand them down using sandpaper and use a primer before painting your doors on a flat surface.
  • Unfortunately, you can’t do this in just one day. It will require around a week to paint every door properly and to let it dry.
