Basic Maintenance Of Your Home

If you’re planning on selling your home, there are many tools you can implement to increase its resale value. One of the most cost effective strategies is repainting. A fresh coat of paint before selling will give the appearance that a home is well maintained, even if it isn’t. If the paint is peeling, chipping, dirty or outdated, then it instantly gives off a poor impression. New paint can make an old home look young, fresh and vibrant. A fresh coat of paint may be the difference between whether or not you are able to sell your home.

Cleanliness

Think for a second about how often you clean your walls, ceilings, or trim. Even if your paint isn’t chipped or peeling, it likely has been building up dirt and grime over the years. Even if you were to paint over your interior with the same colors, it would help improve your home’s appearance.

Colors

On the other hand, adding a fresh coat of paint is the perfect time to change up the color of your home. Color can dramatically change a home’s resale value, especially if the colors are outdated. If you’re interested in learning which colors to paint your home, there’s a helpful article on our website written by West + Main Homes.

Kitchen Cabinet Painting

Maybe you want to do a little more than just change the color of your rooms. You can get away with the look of an entire remodel... just by painting! The best section of your house to do this in is the kitchen. Most of the houses in the greater Denver area contain 90’s Golden Honey Oak cabinets. Solely by painting outdated wood cabinets, you will see a dramatic difference in the appearance of your kitchen. Kitchen remodels are key to increasing your home’s resale value.

If you have oak handrails, oak built-ins, or oak trim, you can easily upgrade and modernize them with a couple coats of paint. Check out these transformations:
