You don't have to take on an expensive renovation to add value to your home. Here are four simple projects you can tackle in a weekend to spruce up your home and make it more attractive to future buyers.
Update your switch plates. Are your outlet covers and light switch plates getting dingy from age? Swap out these covers and plates with modern ones for an inexpensive upgrade.
Choose new hardware. Refresh your doors and cabinets by switching out the hardware. Replacing doorknobs, hinges, and cabinet and drawer pulls will give your space a new look without the time and expense of painting doors and cabinetry.
Upgrade light fixtures. You can transform a room by simply changing out builder-grade light fixtures for more trendy, eye-catching models. Not only will new fixtures add visual interest to a room, you can also improve the ambience by choosing the warmth of the light.
Swap out your thermostat. Smart thermostats are ranked as one of the top most-wanted home technologies. Replace your outdated thermostat and enjoy the convenience and the energy savings now, while also knowing you're investing in something buyers will appreciate in the future.
