Home Improvement Cast

Of course, nearly everyone as at some point tried DIY house improvement. But does it increase the potential selling value of a house after? According to interior designer Scot McAllister:

“house improvements, their costs and their resultant profits are not a precise science. For this reason, it’s hard to specifically quantify what works and what doesn’t. For example, laminate flooring has actually undergone a popularity nosedive due to the market being flooded by so several photographic plastic options.”

McAllister continues with:

“Their cheapness has actually created a stigma – and even expensive options have become tarred with the same brush. When replacement costs start ticking away in buyers’ heads you don’t need to be Carol Vorderman to understand that offers will be reduced.”

DIY projects that increase the value of a home

To raise the value of a house, you need to carry out DIY house improvement projects that will definitely withstand the test of time. For example, if you do have laminate flooring you can install vintage wooden doors.

 

To install wooden doors, you would certainly need a screwdriver, a pair of thick gloves, 4-inch door-frame screws and a hammer. To remove the door from the frame, simply unscrew the hinges from the door frame.

Get that old door off

Once the hinges come off, slowly ease the door from frame itself, taking care not to damage the edges. You would certainly want to of course, preserve the old door for use later on. house values go up when front doors are beautiful- so choose the replacement door properly.

Another interesting DIY house improvement project that can raise the value of your house is replacing worn out bathroom tiles. If the tiles are more than a decade old and you plan on selling within the next few months, now would certainly be the opportune time to replace the tiles.

Replacing worn out tiles

The replacement of worn out bathroom tiles is a bit more difficult than the first project, Of course, the tiles in the bathroom can no longer be recovered completely intact, so make sure you can dispose of the broken tiles immediately afterward.

Designer tiles can be put in place of the old ones. Designer tiles employ a variety of brand-new colors and textures that will naturally emphasize the dimensions of the bathroom.

 

For this project you would certainly need a few sacks for tile disposal, a large chisel or a crow bar and a mallet or an equivalent. If possible, work the tiles when they are wet as this reduces friction and lessens dust clouds during working. Drive the crowbar versus the underside of the tiles and slowly work around the tiles.

Ease the tiles off the floor, making sure that none are left behind. Smooth white cement may be used to install the brand-new designer tiles after the bathroom floor has actually been re-leveled.

 

Justin Ray, an interior designer for the TV show How Not to Decorate warns people:

“A bad DIY project will always detract from the resale value. Anything that looks unprofessional, such as a badly-fitted kitchen or uneven plastering, will get buyers wondering.”
