If you’d like to increase the value of your home by a slight amount before you even think of putting it on the market, you may be hesitant to make any kind of an investment. There are numerous upgrades that you can make to your home for under one thousand dollars. In the long run, these upgrades could help to save you some serious money. 


Put In A Programmable Thermostat


The majority of energy usage in your home is consumed by your heating and cooling systems. Using a programmable thermostat can help to keep the temperature inside your home stable throughout the day. Your heating and cooling system won’t need to continually start and restart to create a stable temperature in the home. This could be a great assistance in long-term energy and utility bill savings.


Get A New Toilet


If you want to impress buyers, put a new stylish looking toilet in your home. Upgrading your toilet can also bring your energy costs down. It will use less water with each flush and save you on your water bill.


Re-tile The Bathroom


Tiling a room yourself can be fairly inexpensive. It can also help you to breathe new life into the bathroom. Your tub will look brand new. Buyers will leave thinking that you have done an entire remodel of the bathroom. All you really need to do is replace some tile and grout. It’s a DIY project that can truly pay off with big dividends.


Re-tile Your Floors


Just like the bathroom, putting in a new kitchen tile or floor can really bring back some life into the room. Tile helps to rejuvenate the space by getting rid of dirty, tired flooring and backsplashes. 


If you need professional installation for any of these projects, you can splurge on it a bit. It does take some know how to understand the proper installation floor and backsplash tiles. Replacing the floors and tiles gives your home a new, clean look that will be an attractive upgrade to your home. 


Put Up New Window Fixtures


Replacing your blinds can really add something to each room of the house. Blinds can collect a lot of dust and dirt over time. While you may wash and clean them, sometimes, the dirt gets to a point where it’s completely stuck on. If you want to really make your buyers “wow,” try wood blinds. Most home improvement stores have a wide array of options for window blinds that allow you to customize both the size and style of your blinds.


Any upgrades that you can make to your home are an improvement for you while you’re living in it. These changes also allow you to get a bit more of a return on your property once you’re ready to sell.

For home sellers, getting the best price for your residence likely will require you to upgrade your house's curb appeal. If you dedicate time and resources to bolster your home's curb appeal, you may be better equipped than ever before to enjoy a successful property selling experience.

Now, let's take a look at three tips to help you improve your home's curb appeal.

1. Fix Damaged Home Siding

Cracked or chipped home siding is unlikely to do you any favors. In fact, damaged home siding may prove to be an instant turn-off to prospective buyers.

Fortunately, repairing cracked or chipped siding can be fast and simple. If you fill in any cracks or holes in your home siding, you can eliminate these eyesores without delay.

If you want expert help with house siding repairs, home improvement professionals are available in cities and towns nationwide. These professionals are happy to work with you so you can quickly fix damaged home siding and boost your house's curb appeal.

2. Perform Lawn Care Tasks

Mowing the lawn, trimming the hedges and performing other lawn care tasks is key for home sellers. If you maintain a neat, tidy lawn, you could help buyers see your home's full potential.

Of course, you should continue to perform various lawn care tasks regularly until your residence sells. You never know when a potential buyer may pass your home, and as such, a pristine lawn is paramount to help your residence make a positive first impression.

3. Eliminate Clutter

If you have plastic flamingoes, lawn gnomes and other decorations scattered across your home's front lawn, you may want to remove these items for the time being. Otherwise, it may be tough for buyers to envision what life may be like if they purchase your residence.

To cut down on clutter, you can always host a yard sale or list any unwanted items online. You also can donate any items you no longer need to a local charity or give them to family members or friends.

As you prepare to sell your house, you may want to collaborate with a real estate agent as well. A real estate agent can offer plenty of tips so you can upgrade your house's curb appeal, along with recommendations to help you streamline the home selling process.

Let's not forget about the assistance a real estate agent can provide as you evaluate an offer to purchase, either. A real estate agent can help you weigh the pros and cons of accepting a homebuying proposal. He or she is ready to respond to any house selling concerns or questions you may have, too.

When it comes to selling a home, it generally is a good idea to improve your house's curb appeal as much as you can. Thanks to the aforementioned tips, you can enhance your home's curb appeal in no time at all. And as a result, you can make your home an attractive option to prospective buyers.

Your kitchen is the ultimate workspace, but only if it has the lighting needed to properly illuminate your work area. Without the right lighting, you could end up fumbling through your tasks, failing to complete them to the best of your ability. Thankfully, resolving that problem is as easy as installing LEDs under the cabinets. Here’s what you need to know about this awesome lighting solution for your kitchen.

Types of Under-Cabinet LEDs

When choosing under cabinet lighting for your kitchen, the following types tend to work best.

Pucks

Resembling hockey pucks in size and shape, LED pucks allow you to shine light wherever you need it. As a standalone lighting option, these typically use batteries for power, giving you virtually unlimited placement options. But remember, if you choose this design, make sure you have plenty of batteries on hand to avoid losing light when you need it most.

Bars

Available in a variety of sizes and shapes, LED bars are the most popular under cabinet option. These lights securely fasten to the bottom of whatever cabinet you like and plug right into a nearby outlet for power. Since these use a plug, you are somewhat limited in placement options, depending on your kitchen design.

Strips

For a little more flexibility, you may want to consider LED strip lights, which come in a variety of lengths and sizes. These strips are typically plug in, though some run on batteries instead. Their extra length can make it easier to place them in hard to reach areas that are far from an outlet.

Once you decide which LED light design you favor most, you can pick up as many as you need to create the task lighting of your dreams.

Key LED Light Features for Under Cabinets

Under cabinet LED lights have a large price range, which is largely built around the standard features included with each unit. At the high end of the price range you might find lights with dimmable bulbs, motion sensors, and even color-changing features. At the low end, you just get basic lights that can be turned off and on with the press of a button.

To find your ideal options, take a look at your expectations, budget, and kitchen activities. If you frequently need extra light while cutting up meat, for example, you may want motion sensors to have light on demand without having to flick a switch.  

Installation Tips for Under Cabinet Lighting

Whether you choose strips, bars, or pucks, there are a few things to remember when installing these lights:

  • Perform a mockup to determine if their placement will provide the light you seek
  • Check that the lights function properly before installing them in your desired location
  • Measure your installation points to accurately line up the lights where you want them
  • When you take the time to select and install your LED under cabinet lights, you can transform your kitchen into a truly effective workspace. So, get started in planning this smart upgrade to treat yourself to a well-illuminate space to complete all your kitchen tasks.
