These easy updates can refresh a bathroom and make it a more pleasant place to, well, you know...
Before all your furniture is in place, take stock of the condition of your floors. Clean the carpet, hardwood, or vinyl. In some cases, it’s worth seeing whether there’s original hardwood under the carpeting or vinyl flooring. It’s surprising how often people cover up hardwood floors. Regardless, clean floors will give you peace of mind that you and your loved ones are living in a fresh space.
Next to painting, updating the lighting is one of the most significant, simple things you can do to transform a space. As noted with bathrooms, many homes still have original fixtures. Replacing the lighting not only lets you customize a space to suit your needs, it also increases energy efficiency and saves money on your electricity bills.
While there are expensive kitchen remodeling options that you may want to consider, small touch-ups can make a big difference. Consider updating the handles or knobs on the cabinets, replacing the sink and faucet, or even adding a backsplash. These little changes can help the kitchen feel like your own and pave the way for larger renovations down the road.
While this is not a comprehensive list—and budget is always a constraint—here’s the bottom line: have fun making your new house into your home. It’s an exciting (if daunting) thing to do as a new homeowner, and these tips can help get you well on your way. One final tip: If you are unsure about a particular project, you can always contact your Realtor ® and ask for their opinion. They can give sound advice on what changes will positively affect the value of your home, so use them as a resource.
