Home Renos on a Budget

home renos on a budget
If in the near future you are planning on selling your home, for an effective return on investment (ROI)  consider upgrading or updating key items in your house. For major renovations professional contractors will be required but for smaller ones most home owners will be able to tackle the jobs themselves. The following home renos on a budget tips will cost you between $500 - $1,000.

The Front Door

Curb appeal… it’s the primary and fundamental critical selling feature of a residence and may either draw buyers in or discourage them. Aside from retaining neat and tidy outdoors or having a pretty flower garden, the front door can stand as a statement to the atmosphere in your house. For new builds or older homes, the front door is generally featured with a small window. Create a assertion via replacing the the front door with one that has more complex detailing, up to date hardware, and large decorative glass inserts. If you’re planning to sell, be sure to pick a colour that compliments the outdoor color scheme of your home and has some impact, while still keeping the traditional look. A large glass insert will also draw more natural light into the lobby of your home, creating a bright and cozy surrounding. Numerous door styles can be found at your neighborhood home renovation store, saving you a trip to a professional window and door company. Be sure to measure twice and cut once. Once you've got your door picked and purchased, it’s as simple as popping the old door off its hinges, replacing with the new door.

Increase the appearance of square footage

While actually adding square footage to your home such as finishing the basement or adding an addition to your home would be too costly there are other steps you can take to make your home appear bigger.
Lighten-up and de-clutter your home is the simplest way to achieve positive results. Paint dark walls lighter by using neutral or pale colours, place mirrors in smaller rooms. Replace heavy drapes with retractable blinds.
Rearrange your furniture to create more space, if you have too much furniture you may consider storing some of it until your house has sold. De-clutter and pick up knick-knacks, children toys and any other random objects. 

Hire a professional cleaner

Professional cleaners have the right tools for the job. This is especially important if you have children or pets. Professional cleaners will be able to tackle stubborn dog fur, furniture stains and so forth. Have carpets and furniture steam cleaned to remove any odours. Have the exterior of your home deep cleaned also,this may include power washing siding, decks, sidewalks removing any fungus and stains.

This list is just an example of some of the affordable home improvements a home owner can make. Make a list of the most important items in your house to be addressed and start from there.
