Whether you are looking to sell your home, or are interested in picking up some new projects around the house, now is the perfect time to start! As we are spending more time at home, make the most out of your time and social distancing with these DIY home improvement projects!

DIY Home Improvement Projects to maximize value of your home

Declutter Your Home

While this DIY home improvement project may seem like a hassle, a decluttered home sells quicker and for a higher value. Homebuyers take notice of the clutter and a messy home can impact their decision to purchase your home. Start by decluttering each room of the house one by one to keep track. While cleaning out spaces in your home, make sure to keep what you actually need and will use, donate any items that are no longer in use, and trash any junk. Having a clean and clutter-free house puts you and your family at ease and may even reduce the stress of having to stay indoors!


Another great DIY home improvement project is repainting the interior of your home! For a relatively low cost, you can easily repaint the inside of your home during this time instead of hiring professional painters. Freshen up your home with a new color that can provide a more updated look. Be careful not to use bold colors. Most potential homebuyers prefer neutral colors when considering a home purchase.

Update and Clean the Bathrooms

It is true, kitchens and bathrooms sell homes! Updating your bathrooms is another DIY home improvement project that doesn’t have to be expensive. Make sure to sanitize all areas of the bathroom, as well as washing away in soap scum or buildup in the sink, shower, and bathtub. If you want to add upgrades, try replacing the hardware such as sink faucets, cabinet knobs, and updating light fixtures for an updated look.

DIY Kitchen Upgrade

A final suggested DIY home improvement project is to revamp your kitchen. You don’t need to invest in expensive appliances or rip out the old cabinets to upgrade your kitchen! Try updating the cabinet hardware for a quick and easy update. Replacing old knobs and installing new cabinetry hardware will instantly give your kitchen a better look. Hardware can be easily ordered online and installed without ever having to leave the house! If you would like to tackle a bit larger project, consider installing a new backsplash.

These are just a  few of the many DIY home improvement projects  homeowners can complete to pass the time spent inside. Enhance the look and feel of your home with these simple, easy, and inexpensive DIY’s.
