If you’re like most people, you have a strong personal connection to your home. However, these strong feelings don’t always translate into actual value. Enhancing the value of your home is essential for your own enjoyment, but it’s also beneficial when you’re looking to sell your home in the near future. If you’re improving your home on a tight budget, here are a few steps you can take to boost value without breaking the bank.
Replace Light Switch Covers
After years of constant contact, the light switches in your home are likely to look pretty shabby. Swapping out your existing light switch covers for new ones can have quite an impact, especially if you’ve re-painted the interior. It’s also a rather easy and inexpensive fix, unlike other electrical renovations. While you’re at it, consider changing your current outlet covers as well.
Deep Clean Carpets
Carpeting in your home can also take quite a beating over time. Along with becoming discolored by dirt and grime, carpet fibers are notorious for soaking up bad smells and odors, as well as being a hiding place for allergens like dust mites and pet dander. While regular vacuuming is an essential aspect of carpet care, it can’t remove contaminants and stains deep within carpet fibers. Steam cleaning addresses deep-set stains, allergens, and bad odors, while also restoring the look of your carpeting.
Update Your Appliances
Outdated home appliances, like water heaters and dishwashers, function less efficiently, which costs you money on utility bills. By updating these appliances, your reducing your energy use and spending less on utility bills. New appliances are also attractive to homebuyers, as they won’t need to spring for replacements soon after they move in.
Add More Storage
When a home lacks sufficient storage, organization and tidiness is a lot harder to maintain. While it can be costly to install new closets where there are none, strategically placed shelving is easy to install and quite affordable. Additional shelving in areas like bathrooms and laundry rooms is particularly welcomed, as it provides extra room for toiletries and cleaning supplies.
