When considering home improvement projects, remember it’s important to give your home universal appeal. Whether or not you are considering the sale of your home, I am happy to share my knowledge and expertise on home improvements with you. Listed below are nine ways to make your home stand out from the crowd.

Focus on Fixtures. Whether it is door handles, cabinet knobs, faucets, or lights, an overall upgrade to the fixtures in your home can have a big impact on buyer appeal. High-quality pieces can be purchased at reasonable prices, and can really add to the definition of your home’s style.

Hardwood Floors. Longevity, neutrality, and class are some of the qualities that have kept hardwood floors in high demand. If you have them already, make them shine. If you have the budget to add them, you can be sure you won’t be taking any risks when it comes to general buyer interest.

Bath and Beauty. If you can’t afford the whirlpool bathtub or granite countertops, increase your bathroom’s beauty by replacing the mirror and changing the lighting.

Countertops. Granite is always a popular choice, but there are other alternatives. Corian, Silestone, Soapstone, and Limestone are also eye-catching and easy to care for at a lower price than granite countertops.

Stainless Steel. Appliances with a stainless steel finish are always good options. They match well with different decor and studies have shown that their commercial look gives the power of suggestion for people that they are great cooks. If you can’t afford new appliances, you can order front panels which match the rest of your kitchen.

Organized Storage Spaces. Implementing proper storage solutions can do wonders for showcasing the space of your home. Organization can give potential buyers viewing your home a clearer vision of how they can store their own belongings.

Lights. One of the most overlooked aspects of decorating is lighting. Proper lighting can make up for the lack of natural lighting in rooms with small windows, make rooms appear larger, and also change a room’s mood.

Built-ins. Built-in bookshelves and cabinets can add high levels of quality and function to an otherwise bland room. Just be careful how many built-in areas you have and what purposes they serve. For example, a buyer who owns a very large TV will be discouraged knowing they will not be able to fit it into your built-in entertainment center.

Staged Furniture. If you have really unique architecture, consider showing your home without much in it. Otherwise, have your home professionally staged. Staging paints a picture of your home as warm and inviting and also lets a potential buyer picture themselves in your living space.
