Boost the value of your home without breaking your bank account

Whether you're getting your home ready to sell or you just want to spruce things up we've got you covered with these 5 budget friendly strategies.

1) Declutter: Go through your home room by room and get rid of/donate anything you no longer need to create space and a sense of flow.

2) Paint: Paint can instantly transform a tired old space making it look, feel and smell new. Fix any dings and dents in your walls prior to the fresh coat of paint for a flawless look.

3) Give your kitchen a mini makeover: The kitchen truly is the heart of the home and it sets the tone for the entire house. You can modernize your kitchen by painting or refacing your cabinets, adding a new light fixture and changing your colour palette to lighten things up. If your budget allows add a new countertop and backsplash.

4) Make your bathrooms sparkle: Next to the kitchen bathrooms are often the most important rooms to update. Start with a thorough cleaning, replace old toilet seats, update light fixtures and faucets, and consider re-grouting.

5) Curb Appeal: Enhance your exterior, it's the first thing people see and we all know how important first impressions are. Start by washing your windows and painting the front door, a bright coloured door gives an inviting feel. Replace or spray paint door knobs, hardware and outdoor lights. Add a welcome mat and some hanging baskets, manicure your flower beds and finish things off with some fresh mulch.

There you have it 5 cost friendly ways to add some value and spruce things up in your home!
