Here are some more ideas of upgrades that add market value to your home. Let’s begin with the exterior. At times an upgrade can be as simple as dressing up the front of the home. The addition of beautiful outdoor light fixtures such as hanging lanterns or sconces will accentuate the front entrance and bring a soft inviting look to the home. Add style and pizzazz with accessories like planters and decorative chairs placed strategically near the front entrance. Don’t clutter up the area though-keep it simple and clean.
We’ll head to the kitchen now, the place you’ll see the biggest return on your investment. Look down: yes, it’s flooring that’s a quick way to add style and value to your home. If you need to replace your floor, wood flooring is a particularly good choice and has a big appeal to buyers. It is classic and warm and goes with practically any look. If wood is out of your budget, consider laminate which looks almost the same but is significantly cheaper-just be sure to choose a good brand to prevent peeling or separating. You may also consider Tiles such as Ceramic, Linoleum Stone etc… .
Now check out your cabinetry. Reviving your kitchen with new cabinetry can completely change the look of your kitchen however it is also pricy. The easiest and most economical way is to simply paint the existing cabinets. Or you can replace hardware, drawers and fronts for a reasonable price. Add a glass cabinet door for that extra style.
Speaking of glass, the switch to a glass kitchen backsplash will transform your kitchen. It is luminous, durable, and very current making it a beautiful and perfect choice for a kitchen upgrade.
