Three Cheap and Easy Home Improvements to Enhance Your Property

Whether you are looking to improve the appearance and functionality of your property for your own benefit or to make it a more attractive place to let out/sell, you needn’t spend a fortune;

If you don’t have the budget of those folk that appear on ‘Grand Designs’ , don’t worry: we have five craftily cheap and simple fixes which can make all the difference to the look and feel of your home…

De-clutter

The more usable space which you have available in your property, the more attractive it will be to potential buyers or tenants; and if you are seeking to improve things for yourself, it goes without saying that a good de-cluttering session could really help to clear the air and open up new possibilities in your living space;

We all have useless items kicking around the home which can start to turn ‘invisible’ as we get used to living with them: to help us to de-clutter, why not get a chum to pop round and help identify what can be discarded and what needs to stay?

For items which are still in a good state of repair, you could always try selling them on eBay, or give them to charity: as for less desirable items, check to see if it is possible to get them put in for recycling.

Paint

Cracking out a new tub of paint doesn’t need to cost you the earth: by applying a fresh coating on tired old walls, you can add a touch of new life to your property;

Try looking on home-improvement and interior design websites for some ideas: something as simple as painting your walls in a lighter colour can help to open a space up and create the impression of a larger environment.

Grubby old furniture can also be painted to give it a new lease of life, so think twice about getting a new wooden dining table or set of kitchen stools and consider this money-saving option.

Fascia’s

Kitchen and bathroom units can be really expensive to replace: a look in any designer kitchen showroom can give you inspiration, but when the sales people hit you with the prices, you may be shocked to learn the cost of re-vamping your home from scratch;

Cut out unnecessary expense by upgrading your existing kitchen units: even something as small as replacing the door handles, giving a cabinet a lick of paint or replacing the doors on a rotting under-sink counter could all create a fresh new look which won’t cost an arm and a leg.
