Little things can mean a lot, especially when it comes to making
your home more attractive to potential buyers (or the people you live
with!). The following projects can help freshen up your home's look,
and chances are good you won't need a professional design team
Landscape the front yard. Your home's curb appeal is the first
thing people notice. Keep your lawn mowed and free of weeds.
Some low-maintenance shrubs and a simple topiary or hanging
pot of flowers near the front door can make for an inviting
entrance. Visit your local landscaping center for ideas.
Tile the entryway. Make the first impression inside your home
a big one. A tile floor that looks like stone, rather than carpet or
linoleum, says, "This home is special."
Paint the interior. A fresh coat of paint or a new color for the walls
can change a room quickly. If you're painting to sell, avoid dramatic
hues and stick with neutrals or all white.
Give kitchen cabinets a makeover. Homebuyers always make
a beeline for the kitchen and visitors usually end up chatting here,
so it's an ideal room to give extra attention. A coat of paint can
spiff up shabby cabinets, and updating hardware on cabinets and
drawers can make the kitchen tasteful.
Update light fixtures. If you're currently dining under a chandelier
that is so-20-years-ago or getting ready each morning under
drab lighting, it's time to add new light to your life. Go for a classy,
simple fixture with dimming capabilities in the dining room and
bright, natural lighting in the bathroom.
Maximize storage. Cramped closets are unattractive to buyers
and frustrating for family members of all ages. Step up storage
with a closet system that offers plenty of shelves and rods for
