As a homeowner, you’re probably well aware that a property takes a certain level of maintenance in order to keep it looking and feeling great. Upon finishing one DIY task, there’ll likely be another one waiting for you to start. The good news is, keeping your property updated can actually increase its value, so if you want to sell one day, you’ll get a greater return on your investment. So, here are some tips for updating your property this summer.
Giving your rooms a fresh coat of paint once in a while is a quick win as far as home updates go, especially compared with something like a bathroom or kitchen renovation. It’s much more affordable and can really transform and brighten up a space.
Add accent walls
Adding accent walls is a great way to freshen up your home this summer. You can make each room look new and stylish by using bright colors, different patterns, or unique textures. While some homeowners prefer accent colors, others create modern wall art. If you’re not particularly fond of wall arts or bold colors, consider using natural stones like marble or slate. Natural stone products will bring a piece of nature into your home, creating a serene and grounding atmosphere. Overall, choosing a good design for your accent wall not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of an accent wall but also contributes to the overall value and charm of your home.
This is another easy way to tidy up a space, especially if your existing laminates are scuffed or your carpets are grubby/outdated. Depending on the type of flooring, you could even paint it to give it a new lease of life.
Your kitchen is likely one of the most used rooms in the house, so it’s worth keeping this space in good condition by updating the fittings and fixtures every once in a while. This is a more costly project but will certainly increase the value of your property quite significantly.
During summer, it’s probably important to keep your garden in pristine condition so that you can entertain guests for BBQs or put your feet up on the garden furniture after work and enjoy the space. With that said, consider reviving your decking by cleaning it, treating it with wood preserver and fixing any damaged parts.
Home automation products are fantastic for giving you a greater sense of control over things like your heating and lighting. In turn, you may notice reduced energy bills.
