5 Cheap upgrades to increase your house’s value

5 Cheap upgrades to increase your house’s value

These are some simple and cheap upgrades you can use to increase your house’s value if you are looking to sell. By not breaking the bank on upgrades, you ensure your own financial stability in the long run.

Paint over unsightly tiles


Rather than going to all the effort (and expense) of fully replacing tiled floors, you can actually paint them to look fresh and clean. See how it is done here.

Upgrade your fixtures


As with the tile tip above, door knobs, faucets and locks are all fairly cheap to paint to make them look brand new. For a great tutorial click here.

Add visible storage


Hidden storage might be good for living in a home, but buyers want to see storage space without having to open everything. See how to easily add some floating shelves to a tiny bathroom here.

Paint your kitchen cabinets


Installing new cabinetry can be super expensive, but a couple coats of new paint can make an outdated kitchen look much more modern and clean. See how to do it here.

Ditch that popcorn ceiling


Textured popcorn ceilings went out of style years ago, so removing it is equal to giving your home’s interior a facelift. Just make sure to get it tested for asbestos before you try this one yourself as some older houses have it in the ceiling. See how to do it here.
