What is a Cosmetic Renovation?
Think of a cosmetic renovation as applying a dash of make-up to your home. A lick of paint, a new carpet and updated light fittings are all cheap, simple yet effective cosmetic enhancements you can make to make any room pop.
Why Carry Out a Cosmetic Renovation?
When you come to sell your home, you only have a few minutes to make a first impression. If the potential buyer is presented with a clean, blank canvas, they will be better able to visualise filling the space with their stuff.
Remember that adding value to your home doesn’t have to involve a team of twenty tradespeople and $20,000. Consider instead the ‘perceived value’ of your home. Sprucing up your space with new colours, blinds and flooring won’t cost a lot or take much time, but it could be just the ticket to securing a sale or even selling your house for more.
A Simple Fix: Paint
Paint would have to be one of the easiest ways to modernise the home and create a fresh, sleek look. Whether you choose to hire a professional painter or do it yourself (with help, we hope!), painting one room or the whole house will definitely bring it into a new era. Choose neutral hues and opt for white in small spaces, as it will create the illusion of space. Feature walls are a little riskier, so consider consulting with an interior designer or interior decorator to ensure the resulting tone is inoffensive.
Removing old blinds and curtains and replacing them with simple, contemporary blinds is another easy cosmetic renovation that can deliver great results. As with paint, choose neutral tones that won’t clash with the interiors and allow plenty of light to penetrate into each room. This will help lighten and brighten the space and make it appear bigger.
Let in the Light
Another relatively inexpensive cosmetic reno is replacing old lighting fixtures with a more modern look. For a few hundred dollars, you could bring in a statement piece like a chandelier, or stick with a more simple style. In some instances, however, you may need to hire an electrician.
The advantage of undertaking smaller cosmetic tasks is that you can gradually upgrade your home, feature by feature. This means fewer costs and fewer disruptions.
