Although replacing the floor and wall coverings is just cosmetic, it can go a long way toward boosting a home's value. Rip down that old wallpaper, remove that popcorn ceiling and tear out that faux-wood paneling. Replace it all with neutral paint.
For the floors, you can never go wrong with hardwood throughout the house. Choose a hard-wearing variety in an attractive shade and lay it in every room pointing the same direction. This will create the illusion of more space and a more cohesive style.
Open Up the Floor Plan and Increase Light
Having a natural flow of light from room to room makes the space look larger and more inviting. Take out non-load-bearing walls, create a pass-through from kitchen to living area with beautiful, streamlined hardwood or tile flooring, and consider installing recessed lighting or even skylights.
Increase Home Value With an Updated Kitchen and Bath
Nothing increases the value of a house more than a remodeled kitchen, but bathrooms come a close second. Think light and airy, plenty of cabinet and counter space with a seated island and get all new appliances and fixtures.
Don't Forget the Outside Living Spaces
Professional landscaping and installation of attractive decks, patios and other hardscape ideas can increase home value too. Effective landscaping not only increases the square footage of usable space, it makes the home look more inviting as well.
