Recommendations To Help You Make The Right Home Improvements To Prepare Your Home For A Sale

Home & Garden Blog

There are a lot of different home improvement projects that you can tackle on your own or hire a professional contractor for. However, there are several easier tasks that you can do on your own with the confidence that you will give your home the updates it needs to look great and work more efficiently. The following provides you with recommendations to help you make the right home improvements to prepare your home for a successful sale.

Paint the Interior

Painting the inside of your home is a great way to freshen up the look of the interior and provide your walls with a new clean look to cover up any dings, dents, and scratches that may be in the existing paint coating. A new coat of paint will actually provide you the opportunity to clean and wipe down your walls to transform the color of your home interior into a more neutral and modern color. Look for adding neutral gray shades in lighter colors to give the room a neutral look that any buyer will be able to appreciate and imagine living within. You can also opt for a bright white paint color, a white color with a hint of blue, or an off-white color to make the walls appear clean and give the room a more open feel. 

Be sure you prep all your home's walls by cleaning them of any dust that naturally collects on your walls, especially if you have pets in your home. You should also prepare your walls by cleaning off any grease that can transfer onto the walls from fingerprints, especially along wall corners, down hallways, and in the kitchen. You can use a cleaner, such as trisodium phosphate or another degreasing soap.

Update Lighting

You can also update the inside of your home with the installation of a new set of lights in various rooms of your home. Your kitchen has a lot of areas where it can benefit from directional lighting or hanging pendant lights, such as over the kitchen counter or the eat-in kitchen. The cabinets can create a shadow effect on the counters below, so under cabinet lighting illuminates this space to make any food prep and clean-up easier. Look in your home's entryway or above the dining room table for a place to install a new decorative hanging light, such as one made of neutral colors with multiple bulbs to help provide a brighter area in the spaces that are most commonly used in your home.

Carpet Cleaning Tips And Tricks

Hello, it's Trinity Wilson here and I love cleaning carpets. Having five children gave me a crash course on this fine art. While renting, it's important to keep the carpets free of stains despite the chaos that multiple children bring down after all. I learned how to lift liquids out of the carpet before they could set. I learned how to remove hidden stains well after the kids moved something over the top to cover their crime. I've even taught my kids how to clean stains out of their carpets using both natural and commercial products. I've decided to apply my skills to this website to teach my readers the best ways to approach carpet cleaning. I will share how to clean the carpet by hand, with a machine and even when to hire professionals to get the job done. Welcome to my site, please come by often!
