Refresh your home using these simple techniques that will bring an air of sophistication and increase its resale value.
Paint the Kitchen Cabinets
You don’t have to replace your kitchen cabinets to get a completely fresh look for your kitchen. Adding new cabinetry can be expensive, but something as simple as a new coat of paint can make the room feel like new. If your kitchen is outdated, painting the cabinets can make it feel more modern and cleaner.
Update Cabinet Handles
Enhance the modern look of your kitchen even more with updated cabinet handles. Swap out generic or out-of-date handles for newer, more stylish ones to give your kitchen an entirely new look and feel. “It’s clear that brushed brass is year’s stand-out metal, giving a luxurious finish to handles, small appliances and even plug sockets [livingetc.com.]”
Build and Furnish a Backyard Deck
A beautiful backyard deck offers a seamless transition from indoors to out. Aside from offering you the perfect place to flip burgers and catch some rays, having a deck will increase the resale value of your home. Experts suggest using a rustic, natural wood.
If your home already has a deck, consider reviving it with a power wash and hand scrub. Then, brush on a protective coat of semitransparent stain to protect it from the elements.
