Decorative Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home

Published: 08/22/2019 03:44:00 PM

If you're a homeowner, you're likely looking for ways to increase the value of your home, particularly if you plan on selling it anytime soon. The good news is that complete room renovations aren't always necessary. In fact, there are many upgrades you can do yourself or with minimal professional guidance.

These ideas just might inspire your next weekend home project.

Add Crown Molding

Adding decorative elements such as crown molding, ceiling medallions, and corbels, will impress guests, and sure to make a lasting impression on potential buyers. To add value to your home, crown molding must complement its current style and be installed correctly as well. Classic Ceilings offers easy to install, quick clip crown moldings in various styles from classic to intricate. Be sure to paint your moldings a slightly different color than your wall paint so that they stand out. White is common, but a light beige or soft gray can also work.

Frame Your Windows

If your windows are bare, adding a casing will instantly create more interest and sophistication in your room. Choose options that are right for your room by matching the current style and determining your ceiling height. Wider casings are better for larger rooms and tall ceilings, while narrow casings fit well in smaller rooms.

Update Fireplace and Mantle

A stone or brick fireplace can easily be updated by lime washing or with a coat of paint. A decorative mantel can replace an outdated one, or you might install a new mantel. The popular farmhouse style often uses natural wood mantels over a white brick fireplace. Shiplap is also very trendy. Full mantels, versus a shelf only, can create a glamorous statement.

New Paint

A fresh coat of paint can brighten any room. Soft colors help to make a space feel larger while deep hues will make a bold and dramatic statement. When the goal is to increase the value of your home, aim to choose colors that aren't too bold in order to attract the widest range of buyers. Gray is very neutral, while blue adds a calming tranquil effect, and the right shade of yellow is very peaceful.

Curb Appeal

Improving your curb appeal will not only increase the value of your home, but it can also help your home sell faster. Add more curb appeal by maintaining a clean landscape, touching up exterior paint, and adding window headings and crossheads or pediments to your main entryway.
