A good declutter and clean is never a bad idea if you’re looking for a helpful project at home. When you have a clean house, you can relax, you will create more space, and a lot of people feel this boosts their mental well-being.
However, this is just the starting point when it comes to making the most of your home. After you have decluttered and cleaned, it is natural to decorate the house. If you plan on staying in the house for many years, choose something which makes you happy.
Alternatively, if you know you plan on selling your home at some point in the next few years, do so with a prospective buyer slightly in mind. Opt for neutral colours, because bold colours can put people off. A fresh coat of paint is often more than enough to make your home feel like new, and it can make it more appealing to buyers, if you plan on selling your house.
If you have a garden area, spend time there
If you have a garden, it is likely you are spending time there. However, when it comes to adding value to your home, you might be surprised at how much of an impact a great looking garden has. Take the time to clear your garden, mow the lawn, remove weeds and add a touch of colour by planting flowers and freshening up borders and brickwork.
You should also take the time to ensure all paths, drives and walkways are in good condition. If you have access to a powerhouse, use it, and you’ll notice a massive in how your garden looks.
Consider window and door frames
Whether you focus on functionality or style, you need to consider the importance of door and window frames. If these areas are in excellent condition, freshen them up. However, if they need repaired or replaced, make this a priority.
When you have cracks or gaps, your home isn’t as well insulated as it can be. Fill these cracks and gaps, and you will improve the energy efficiency of your house, and you will lower your energy bills. These are outcomes all homeowners benefit from, and it will improve the value of your house.
You might be surprised at the big impact small changes can make. These are difficult times, but if you are looking to improve your home, you’ll find there are quick and effective ways to add value to your house.
