When it comes to home improvement, have a plan from the start through the finish of your intended improvement. This will ensure that you stay within your budget and that you complete your intended project without the emotional factors being involved. It can be obvious both to a potential buyer and to your pocketbook if a home improvement project is made up as you go.
One great place to start a home improvement project is your kitchen. If you are planning to repaint the walls, mix a solution of TSP cleaner with water (2:1 ratio) and rub down the walls. Not only will this mixture remove grease, but it will remove some paint as well. Re-paint the kitchen in tan colors; you will be amazed at how much different your room will look as soon as you are done.
It’s simple to hide extra supplies in your floor or attic. Large materials and long items can be tucked away easily. Nail furring strips across a couple of exposed floor joists. Alternatively, nail them across your rafters. Slip the material in there for easy storage.
When using nails to join wood surfaces, such as those in door frames, try reinforcing them with glue or liquid nails. By doing this, the wood will be reinforced with a much tighter bond than normal and strengthen the quality of your construction, which will last for many years without the need for constant repairs.
When trying to fix up a house to flip it, pay attention to the kitchen. If has linoleum floors, replace them with tile. It makes the place look much better. You should examine the counters and look at replacing them. They don’t have to be granite, but granite counter tops increase the value of the home and up your chances of selling it.
When you are preparing to sell your home, set up your rooms in a way that defines the space. Your family room should contain the standard furniture, and so should your office. Buyers are visual, and they often have a hard time imagining themselves in a space if it isn’t properly appointed. Well defined spaces make a house more attractive and set it up to sell faster.
Making sure that your basement is weatherproof is the first step to creating a living space in there. If your basement is dry and never leaks or floods, it is a great way to save money on your renovation. However, if your basement is perennially flooded or damp, it not only makes way for mold, but also makes the space uninhabitable. Make sure to weatherproof your basement before beginning your remodeling project.
