There are several ways of increasing your home’s value through DIY projects. These DIY projects can elevate the look of your entire home aesthetically. A few alterations can give your space a novel and improved look.
An amalgamation of contemporary and vintage touches in living spaces is what adds the most value to homes. While there is a need for modernity in terms of functionality, vintage touches add a rustic charm to homes, giving them a cozy and warm ambiance.
Here are 5 DIY projects that can boost a home’s value.
1) Repainting the Exterior and Interior of the Home
One interesting DIY project is to repaint your home with neutral color schemes or an all-white color scheme. These color schemes give an illusion of a brighter and bigger space because they tend to reflect light. Painting can easily be done at home with the help of a few pieces of painting equipment – take a look at this simple guide. For example, paints, brushes, and rollers. It can be a fun DIY project for the weekend!
Adding French paneling on a focal accent wall of the living space, with the same paint color looks elegant yet chic. It adds texture to the space while retaining its minimalism.
Adding French paneling to walls can also be a fun DIY project. Panels can be added using wooden or MDF planks and cutting them proportionately using relevant tools.
Repainting the exterior of your home is another thing that can be done to increase its value. Home exteriors with worn-out paint or exposed bricks give an impression of an outdated home. Thus, decreasing its value.
2) Sprucing Up The Floor
Secondly, worn-out flooring gives an impression of an outdated space. Although wooden vinyl flooring is trending, its brassy accents look aesthetically unappealing. However, a fun DIY project to spruce up the flooring is to sand down the floors to a perfect neutral shade and seal it with a matte or glossy varnish. The floors in neutral tones give a contemporary vibe to the space.
3) Update the lighting
Outdated lighting in homes is another thing that gives away its age and makes the space look old. Keeping the lighting up to date is better in terms of functionality as well as looks. LED lights are energy efficient compared to traditional forms of lighting.
Hence, they last longer. Using LED lights in homes in the form of recessed lighting gives a luxurious vibe to the space. It changes its tones from warm to cool, giving the option of suiting one’s needs. Replacing the lighting is a job that can be done without the help of a professional.

4) Changing Door Knobs, Handles, and Fixtures
Moreover, little things around the house determine the value of a home. For example, outdated and rusty knobs, handles, and fixtures of bathrooms make the home appear to be aged. Thus, decreasing its value.
It is a smart decision to frequently update the knobs of doors, handles of furniture, and bathroom fixtures. This can be an easy DIY project! Updated home accessories increase their value along with the ease of functionality. Comfort in homes is a priority that needs to be catered to.
5) Contemporary decorations
Lastly, a home’s value increases when they are decorated as per current trends. For example, updating the upholstery of sofas and chairs can give them a new look. Fabrics that are trending and give a sophisticated look to the space are cotton, linen, leather, etc.
A similar approach can be followed when it comes to curtains. Color schemes that are trending are neutral tones with monotone cushions. Bold colors like emerald, teal, and burgundy would also complement the neutral tones perfectly while adding a pop of color to the space.
Redecorating your living space can be a fun DIY project. Moreover, decorating the space with statement decor pieces like vases and wall mirrors gives it a contemporary vibe.
