5 Minor Renovations to Add Value to Your Home

5 Minor Renovations to Add Value to Your Home

When it comes to selling a home, making minor renovations can significantly increase its saleability and overall value.  You don’t always need to break the bank to make your home more attractive to buyers. Here are five minor renovations that can make a big impact:

1. Paint

Fresh paint can instantly transform the look and feel of a home. Neutral colours are generally recommended as they appeal to a wider range of potential buyers. A fresh coat of paint can make a space feel brighter, cleaner, and more inviting, ultimately increasing its saleability

2. Lighting

Updating lighting fixtures can modernize a home and improve its overall ambiance. Energy-efficient and stylish lighting can make a significant difference in how a space is perceived. Consider replacing outdated fixtures with more contemporary options to enhance the home’s appeal.  It is also important to make sure that all of the bulbs in the house are of the same tone.  Some “daylight” bulbs can look quite blue and make the space appear cold which is something to be aware of.

3. Door Trim and Baseboards

Refinishing or replacing door trim and baseboards can give a home a polished and well-maintained look. Painting out or replacing oak casing or banged up baseboards can make a big difference in how updated and maintained the home looks.

4. Cabinet Hardware

Upgrading cabinet hardware in the kitchen and bathrooms can give these spaces a fresh and updated look. It’s a relatively inexpensive and easy change that can make a big impact on the overall aesthetic of the home

5. Window Coverings

Replacing outdated or worn window coverings can instantly improve the look of a room. Consider updating to modern blinds or curtains that complement the overall style of the home. Replacing dark curtains or blinds with something light can enhance the overall appeal of the space

By focusing on these minor renovations, homeowners can significantly increase the saleability and value of their home without undertaking major, costly projects.
