Best home improvement ideas for South Florida homes
Spending more time at home has certainly gave people in the last month’s ideas to either update or remodeling their properties. While basic maintenance such as cleaning gutters or outfitting homes with hurricane-safe windows are done on a regular basis by Florida residents, there are many other DIY and medium size improvements you can do to give your property a fresher look while increasing its value in the market.
Whether considering in making a real investment or looking for ways to spend time at home productively, here are 5 essential improvements for people wanting to enhance features of their property in short time.
Paint the house
There is nothing better than fresh paint to change the overall look of a house. Although painting a room or a few rooms is effective when it comes to remodeling spaces and cover minor damages such as paint cracks, by painting your front door and the exterior of the house with undertones that match your home´s color scheme, the appearance of the whole property will improve notably.
Upgrade your kitchen
Even if your budget is limited, you can still modernize your kitchen by refinishing or painting your cabinets and drawers solely. Once again, the trick of fresh painting will help your home to look clean and remodeled. After doing your cabinets and if your pocket allows it, consider replacing your countertop or your old appliances for new ones that match the rest of the kitchen.
Fix the floors
By fixing the floors either through maintenance, restoration or low-cost options, you will freshen up the ambiences of your house in little time. From complete remodeling to polishing and even self-adhesive tiles available at local hardware stores, you can give your home´s floor a much nicer finish.
Update your deck/porch:
Since decks are exposed to variations of weather through all the year, a one-time full maintenance or repairment investment will certainly increase not only the beauty but its functionality and safety. If you are looking for simple ways to increase the value of your home by putting money only in what is more likely to return your investment, your deck/porch will do it.
Consider landscaping improvements:
Painting and landscaping represent something like the face of a house. They both make your home´s first impression as they are at everyone´s eyes the whole year. By updating and giving a proper maintenance to your yard and surroundings, your house will not only gain value but will look as one owned by an ideal neighbor. If considering landscaping improvements already, take into account that depending on the type of landscaping, you could end up saving money in utilities such as water.
