The National Home Renovation Survey revealed the five of the finest home improvement ideas. According to real estate experts (respondents), the following five home improvements are the ideal for home sellers and homeowners who wish to give their property a fresh look nationwide.
Cleaning and decluttering. It’s the most popular thing to do. This home improvement project provides a high end value at a low cost, making it an excellent investment. For a fresher ambiance, clean the windows and install curtain blinds. Remove clutter from furniture. Organize closets. These are only a few of the activities that are included in the cleaning process.
Lighting and brightening. By ensuring windows can be opened easily, cleaning them inside and out, replacing outdated curtains with new ones with simple designs, removing obstacles that could potentially block the light from windows, and repairing light fixtures, this activity marked the importance of having enough lighting and ventilation.
Plumbing and electrical update. Surveys say that plumbing and electrical systems both rank third and are critical to the safety of a home. As part of the plumbing work, you’ll need to fix or replace any leaky faucet stems or faucet handles, check for damaged or corroded pipes under the bathroom or kitchen sinks, and make sure toilets are working properly. If you’re undertaking any electrical work, use caution and hire a professional if you’re not familiar with the techniques. Verify and maybe update the electrical wiring; ensure that the wiring is uncluttered (do not have hanging cables); check for non-working lights and outlets for replacement; the doorbell should also work.
Landscaping. When it comes to landscaping, maintenance includes things like raking leaves and weeds, cutting back bushes and trees, adding flowers and shrubs for added curb appeal, and watering lawns and plants. It is one of the best home renovation projects as it increases the value of the property while also creating a pleasant ambience.
Staging. This has similarities to decluttering as it seeks to improve cleanliness and order in the home or office environment. It is all about clearing out personal belongings to make room for new furniture, reducing clutter through cleaning activities, and, if possible, adding new furniture to improve room appearance while also clearing out bulky display cases and hanging artworks on the walls to brighten the space.
