Before putting your home on the market consider some of these improvements to help make it look more expensive.
Raising the Height of the Kitchen Backsplash
Who said that kitchen backsplashes had to be confined to the area beneath your cabinets? If you’re looking to give your kitchen a bit of a facelift before you list your home, and you’re open to a new backsplash, consider creating a little drama by carrying the backsplash farther up the wall. So if you’ve got some empty wall space or a window above your sink, run the tile up and around those areas. Buyers will appreciate the thoughtful accent.
Upgrading Kitchen Hardware and Fixtures
Although you may enjoy the look of your kitchen, you might feel like it needs a little extra something to take it to the next level. An inexpensive way to up the ante in the heart of the home is to invest in high-quality cabinet knobs, pulls, and faucet fixtures. Dark finishes can be ideal if they fit within your design scheme, since they offer a timeless look. Consider finishes like matte black or oil-rubbed bronze.
Also, don’t be afraid to mix metals. Finishes that aren’t matchy-matchy have become more and more popular. Don’t go too far, though, with the number of finishes you use. Pick one main finish, then complement it with one or two others.
Installing Decorative Mirrors in Bathrooms
A frameless bathroom mirror above a single vanity, or spanning the wall above a double vanity, tends to lack personality. An easy way to add character and interest to a bathroom is to use decorative wall mirrors. One decorative mirror above a single vanity, and two above double vanities, can be effective ways to connect your throne rooms to the décor of surrounding rooms and show buyers that you pay attention to details, because they surely do.
Installing Mirrored Sliding Closet Doors
There’s nothing wrong with wood bi-fold closet doors in your bedrooms. But if you want to enhance the look and functionality of your boudoirs consider installing mirrored sliders. Not only will you give potential buyers and their families full-length mirrors for dressing and checking themselves out, but the mirrors can reflect daylight for brighter spaces, and also make the bedrooms appear larger. It’s a win-win-win that buyers will appreciate.
