5 Ways to Add Value to Your Home | Victorville Murphy Construction

Adding value to your home goes beyond the routine care and maintenance it takes to keep the house liveable. You can have construction experts help you design small changes to make the property more pleasant to view and use. Try a few of the ideas below and see what a difference it makes.

Do a Deep Clean and Freshen Interior and Exterior Paint

A home always looks and functions better when everything is clean and aesthetically pleasing to view. Deep clean areas that are normally passed over during every day or weekly cleans. Deep clean your carpeting, tile, grout, ceilings, built-in lighting, and more. Fix interior walls or exterior siding and add a fresh coat of paint. It can all make a big difference in the value of your home.

Add Storage for Decluttering

A lack of proper storage can make it easy for a home to begin looking as if you are a cluttered person. Small piles begin to build into large stacks of items. You can add built-in shelving, drawers, closets, and cupboards capable of allowing you to find ample space for all your household goods and belongings.

Put in Customized Landscaping or Hardscaping

Don’t forget the outside of your home and the property when it comes to finding ways to make it more appealing. Install amazing hardscape features like raised flower beds, rock gardens, patios, or retaining walls. Plant desert-friendly varieties of plants that are easy to care for and will thrive in drier environments.

Replace Old Appliances

Getting a refrigerator that keeps working for 30-years saves you on the cost of the actual appliance replacement, but you begin to bleed money in operating costs after a few years. Your bills will begin to increase and the performance suffers. Replace the appliances periodically to enjoy real savings from technological advancements.

Insulate and Weatherproof

Cooling costs are a concern for any homeowner in the entire Southern California area. Add value to your home by making sure you have an adequate amount of insulation and that it’s in good condition. Weatherproof the windows and doors against drafts and loss of air-conditioning through weak areas.
