You may be thinking of selling your home or just improving its appearance for your pleasure.  Whatever the reason, there are many ways to do this. If you’re battling to decide which features to restore or repair, then these following ten suggestions should give you some idea.

It’s also advisable to ask an estate agent to look at your property and provide you with suggestions if you’re planning to sell. Ask a friend or family member to give you their opinion as well. Alternatively, you could view some houses currently on show to get a sense of what home buyers are looking for.

Below are ten suggestions which might assist you:

Interior

Electrical

Make sure all that all electrical fittings and wiring are fully functional and in a safe condition. Some older homes’ wiring may not be able to support the more modern appliances and thus need to be upgraded.  Any appliances remaining in the house should also be in good working condition.

Flooring

Where possible, torn carpets should be replaced or lifted and broken tiles replaced.

Bathroom

If the bathtub is stained, it’s advisable to have this seen too. Make sure you clean the bathroom properly, and there’s no mildew or soap residue on any of the surfaces.

Kitchen

Ensure that all cupboards are in good condition with no loose hinges or broken door handles. It’ll help if you fix any leaky faucets.

General Cleaning

Before your house goes on the market, give it an overall cleaning and a good paint. Decluttering is also advisable; this will give your home a more spacious appearance.

Exterior

Painting

Whether you’re planning to sell or not, it’s always a good idea to give your home a paint every 5 to 10 years. The time period would be dependent on the climate of the city where you live.

Eaves

It would be best if you inspected the eaves for any loose or rotten fascia boards. If necessary, you might have to employ a contractor to attend to this. Visit this page for more information regarding professionals working at your home.

Garden And Surroundings

If you have a garden, ensure that all trees, shrubs, and plants are neatly trimmed and de-weed where necessary. Keeping the lawn short and neat goes a long way in giving your garden an attractive appearance.

Paved areas can also be cleaned by hosing down any dirt accumulating on the surfaces. Removing all weeds or grass growing between any paving should also be done.

Windows And Doors

Evaluate doors and their frames which faces outward, especially if they’re wooden. They might need to be sanded down and given a coat or two of varnish. It also can’t do any harm to wash your windows..

Garage

Maintaining a neat garage is always difficult, but it definitely makes a good impression when everything is organized and tidy. So, it’ll be useful to declutter if need be and fix any broken or damaged fixtures.

In Closing

To add value to your home, remember to focus on your kitchen and bathroom when busy inside. Then don’t forget to check on the flooring, all electrical components, and do an overall clean of the whole house. 

Outside, spruce up your garden and surroundings as well as doing some maintenance on windows, doors, and eaves.  Finally, declutter your garage and give your house a lick of paint.
