DIY Jobs That Will Add Value to Your Home

25 June 2018

Want to increase the value of your home? Talisman Hire has rounded up a few DIY jobs that will boost the price you will be able to get for your property:

  • Paint Your Kitchen Cabinetry

Upgrading your kitchen cabinetry can be quite expensive. However, a couple of coats of paint can make an outdated kitchen look much more modern and clean.

  • Change Your Kitchen Cabinet Handles

Swapping out old or generic kitchen cabinet handles can make a kitchen look completely different. Many wholesalers sell kitchen cabinet handles that can fit on both mass-produced as well as custom-made cabinetry.

  • Improve Outdoor Living Spaces

Adding a few chairs and a table to a porch or garden can create the sense of another living space outdoors. Even if you don’t have a lot of garden space to work with, this can create the impression that there is more livable space on your property.

  • Get New Electricity Outlets and Light Switch Plates

Electricity outlets and light switch plates become super dirty from use over time. However, they are really cheap to replace. You can take this DIY hack one step further and paint the outlets and light switch plates the same colour as your wall so that they disappear into the room’s décor.

  • Boost Your Home’s Curb Appeal

The front of your house is the first thing potential buyers will see. So, make sure it is stately and welcoming. Why not add some extra plants to the porch and paint the door?

  • Focus on Your Landscaping

According to Century 21 realtors, landscaping can add between 7 to 15% to a home’s value; a good first impression can increase a home’s value up to 27%. While improving your garden can be a bigger expense, research shows that there is obviously a good pay off for your efforts.
