6 cheap home renovation ideas

You want to make sure that the changes you make will pay off when you go to sell your house. How do you begin? Every home is different, and so is every situation. But there are some key, low-cost home renovation ideas that will make your space better and increase the value of your home in the long run. Not only will these cheap improvements raise the value of your home, but they will also make you feel better about it and make it a nicer place to live. Here are some inexpensive ways to improve the value of your home that I’ve tried and found.

kitchens and bathrooms renovation

You’ve probably heard that if you remodel your kitchen or bathroom, you’ll get most of your money back. Even though this is usually the case, you might not be able to spend up to 60,000 Dirham on a kitchen gut job. According to the 2015 Remodeling Impact Report, you will likely get back 40,000 Dirham, or 67 percent of that cost, when you sell your home. This is still a big number, though. JA Joinery says that a kitchen facelift that costs about 20,000 Dirham will add almost 17,000 Dirham to the value of your home when you sell it. If you can’t spend 20,000 Dirham, even small changes will make a big difference. Here are some things you can do with less than 1,000 Dirham: You can paint your kitchen cabinets and walls, replace old light fixtures with new ones, buy a new bathroom vanity on sale at a site like Wayfair.com and put it in yourself, change your cabinet hardware, and replace that Formica counter with a new quartz one (this could run you over 1,000 Dirham but it may be worth it if your counter looks like an episode of The Brady Bunch).

On the roof

Even if you don’t want to spend money on replacing or fixing your roof, you should do it if it’s leaking or falling apart. According to the Remodeling Impact Report, 45 percent of realtors say that a new roof is a good idea before putting a house on the market, and 32 percent say that this improvement helped close a sale. The report also says that when you sell your house, you’ll get back about 105 percent of the value of your new roof.

Close the main door

Fortune Builders and the Remodeling Impact Report say that a new front door, especially a steel door, is a surefire way to get your money back when you sell your house. On average, you’ll get back about 75% of the about 2,000 Dirham it costs to buy and install a new front door. Most of the time, you’ll get your money back in full, especially if you put the door in yourself. (Contractors charge different rates, but putting in a door usually costs at least 200 Dirham.) In the meantime, you’ll make your house look better from the outside and save energy because new steel doors are usually more energy-efficient than older ones.

You live in a barn, right?

Well, most likely not. JA Joinery says that you can give your home a bit of a rustic or even modern look by putting in a barn door. In fact, homes with the key words “barn door” in their listing descriptions sold for 13.4% more than expected and 57 days faster than homes without these doors. People often put these modern sliding doors in their bedrooms and kitchen pantries. I just bought a distressed grey barn door for my bathroom at JA Joinery. It cost me about 1,300 Dirham. We put it up ourselves, and it’s the best thing about our new house. We still don’t know if we’ll get this money back.

Not just any old sink for the kitchen

I’m about to put in a farmhouse sink in my kitchen, which is another idea I got from JA Joinery. JA Joinery says that these sinks, which are usually bigger and come in different colors and finishes, can add about 8% to the value of your home compared to homes with regular sinks. A farmhouse sink can cost anywhere from 200 Dirham to more than 1,000 Dirham. It’s a good idea to check out jajoinery.ae for design ideas and to look at the different sinks that are available.

Go by subway

After the first improvement on this list, adding subway tile to your kitchen or bathroom will add both style and value to your home at a fraction of the cost of travertine, marble, or glass tiles. You can find basic white subway tiles at Home Depot, Lowe’s, or a discount tile store near you for a range of prices. You will probably love the clean, simple result, and so will anyone who buys it after you. For example, JA Joinery says that homes that talked about subway tile in their listing descriptions sold for almost 7% more than expected and 63 days faster. That’s a good reason to ride the subway.
