5 Expert Tips to Instantly Increase the Value of Your Home

Everybody loves a little extra value! Whether you’re looking to sell your home or planning to stay for many more years, putting a little time and money into updating will pay off big. Here are a few things you can do to update and increase the value of your home’s interior:

  1. Update light fixtures – It’s amazing the difference that changing a chandelier or ceiling fan can make in a room. Light fixtures not only brighten up a space but they can also add a lot of character. I love choosing fixtures that double as statement pieces – look for a future post on some of my favorites.
  2. Add crown molding and/or judges paneling – These extra details will bring a bit more character and sophistication to your home. Choosing a wall color that contrasts well with your new trim will add additional interest to the space.
  3. Install updated hardware – Don’t have the time or money to replace cabinets and counter tops in your kitchen or bathroom? No worries! Try switching out your drawer pulls for any easy update. This makes a huge impact for a small amount of cash. If you want to go a little further, replace your faucet with a piece that matches the new hardware.

  4. Install new flooring – Using the same flooring throughout your home gives the space a larger, more open concept feel. Use area rugs to define spaces. If you’d rather not install new flooring, make your existing hardwood floors like new by having them refinished.
  5. Invest in new appliances – New appliances can completely change the feel of a space. My husband and I love our new black stainless kitchen appliances that we recently purchased from Lowe’s.

When it comes to updating your home’s interior, a little bit can go a long way. Try a few of these things in your own home. You won’t regret it!
