Little things can mean a lot, especially when it comes to making your home more attractive to potential buyers (or the people you live with!). The following projects can help freshen up your home's look, and chances are good you won't need a professional design team to complete them.
Landscape the front yard. Your home's curb appeal is the first thing people notice. Keep your lawn mowed and free of weeds. Some low-maintenance shrubs and a simple topiary or hanging pot of flowers near the front door can make for an inviting entrance. Visit your local landscaping center for ideas.
Tile the entryway. Make the first impression inside your home a big one. A tile floor that looks like stone, rather than carpet or linoleum, says, "This home is special."
Paint the interior. A fresh coat of paint or a new color for the walls can change a room quickly. If you're painting to sell, avoid dramatic hues and stick with neutrals or all white.
Give kitchen cabinets a makeover. Homebuyers always make a beeline for the kitchen and visitors usually end up chatting here, so it's an ideal room to give extra attention. A coat of paint can spiff up shabby cabinets, and updating hardware on cabinets and drawers can make the kitchen tasteful.
Update light fixtures. If you're currently dining under a chandelier that is so-20-years-ago or getting ready each morning under drab lighting, it's time to add new light to your life. Go for a classy, simple fixture with dimming capabilities in the dining room and bright, natural lighting in the bathroom.
Maximize storage. Cramped closets are unattractive to buyers and frustrating for family members of all ages. Step up storage with a closet system that offers plenty of shelves and rods for efficient organization.
