If you’re itching to upgrade your space but have no interest in taking out a loan, don’t worry. You can still make a massive impact on your property value with these affordable home upgrades.

Add value to your home with these affordable home upgrades

Add a deck or patio to your outdoor space

This particular upgrade may seem especially appealing to you as the weather starts to warm. Installing a deck or patio enhances the look and feel of your property. And this upgrade also offers the benefit of additional living space when it comes time to sell your home.

Install molding

Molding is a great way to add a finishing touch to your interiors. Opting for crown molding makes a room appear bigger and taller. You can also choose to use molding in other ways to add interest to different areas such as installing a chair rail or wainscoting. Of all the affordable home upgrades, this one instantly makes your home look and feel more expensive.

Swap out your light fixtures

Builder grade light fixtures are perfectly fine but boring. They don’t necessarily take away from a space at all, but they certainly don’t add anything valuable either. Simply opting for more interesting light fixtures offers an instant boost to the way your home looks and feels.

Paint your shutters and exterior doors

Offer your exterior a facelift by showing your doors and shutters some love. Whether you choose to simply refresh the paint or opt for a new fun and interesting color, this affordable upgrade offers a big bang for your buck and time. Shutters and doors are often painfully overlooked when it comes to the exterior of a home, but by simply adding a fresh coat of paint you can improve your home’s curb appeal considerably.

Clean up your landscaping

Some affordable home upgrades don’t cost a thing. Well, except your time. By investing an afternoon in cleaning up your landscaping, you can upgrade your home’s curb appeal. Trim your bushes and trees. Clear out broken limbs and debris. Precisely cut and edge the yard. All of these things improve the look and feel of your property but don’t have to cost a dime.
