It can be hard to know where to start when you are putting your home on the market.

A small budget can make these decisions even harder. Which improvements are the most cost-effective in adding value to your home? Here are the seven best DIY renovations to improve your home’s value.

1. Paint the walls

Painting is a great DIY activity to tackle. Professional results are achievable as long as you take your time. Proper preparation is key. Using an all-in-one paint can speed up the time this project takes.

2. Add or Replace Window Treatments

Tinting your windows can improve the efficiency of your air conditioning. This will save you money on your utility bill. It will also block overly bright sunlight from entering the home. Updating your curtains and blinds is another excellent DIY method to increase the value of your home.

3. Clean the Siding

If you have vinyl or other similar sidings, you can clean it yourself. There is no need to hire a professional or even rent a power washer. The only equipment you will need is a hose, a cleaner, and a long-handled brush. Oh, and a strong will to sell your house.

4. Refinish Your Cabinets

A simple way to refinish your cabinets is to paint them and change out the cabinet’s hardware. The new equipment and paint will give your cabinets a fresh, clean look.

5. Hang Art

Interior art can add to the appearance of a room. A gallery wall is an excellent way to showcase several pictures in one area.

6. Refresh the Exterior

Updating your front door or repainting your accent siding are two cost-effective ways to refresh your home’s exterior.

7. Add or Replace Backsplash

Adding or replacing an existing backsplash can be done easier nowadays with the use of peel and stick backsplash tiles. The installation is easy enough for DIY use.
