Budget-friendly DIY projects to boost your home’s value

Posted: 15 June 2021


While renovations can add a huge amount of value to your home, they can also be very costly and eat into your savings. However, there are ways you can improve your home without breaking the bank. DIY projects are becoming increasingly popular, allowing people to upgrade their homes for a fraction of the price. All you need is some elbow grease, a few pounds and some DIY ideas. Here are a few to get you started: 


1. A fresh coat of paint 

There’s nothing like a fresh coat of paint to completely rejuvenate a space. If you prefer a minimalist style, a light, neutral colour will make your home feel more spacious and open. However, if you’re looking for some more depth and character, then be bold and go for a pop of colour. Use masking tape to stencil some quirky geometric shapes or blank out a section of a wall to make a statement.

2. Upgrade fixtures

Many homes come stock standard with generic fixtures that are functional but poor in quality and largely unattractive. By upgrading the fixtures in your kitchen and bathrooms, you can make your home look more high-end and modern. Simply remove your faucets and find a suitable replacement at your closest hardware store.

3. Add some trendy lights 

Quality lighting is essential to any space. With the right lighting, you can make a room feel bigger and brighter at the flick of a switch. Find light fixtures that are bold and striking to add some vibrancy to a room. You can also purchase some trendy floor lamps or fairy lights to lighten up a dark and dreary space. 

4. Freshen up old cabinets 

Old and outdated cabinets can devalue a room in a second. While it can be costly to replace them, a fresh coat of paint and new hardware can completely transform your kitchen or bathroom. Simply remove the cabinets, fix any dents, sand them down and apply a primer for a new and improved space. 

5. Get creative with your walls

An accent wall can completely change the look and feel of a room. From striking artworks and planters to mosaics and murals, there are plenty of ways you can revamp your walls. To avoid unnecessarily damaging your walls with holes or glue, use adhesive hooks or stick on tiles to get the look without the risk. 

6. Declutter your home

Big, bulky furniture and useless household items can take up valuable space in your home and make it look smaller and less attractive. By placing your excess furniture and belongings into a secure and reliable self storage facility, you can free up much-needed space and give the illusion that your home is bigger than it actually is.
