Consider these small fixes that can add value to your Shrewsbury, MA home

SHREWSBURY, Massachusetts – You may be surprised to hear that adding value to your home and property is not as costly as you may think. The first and most popular is paint. Both the exterior of a home or an interior room can be seemingly magically transformed with the right shade of paint. If nothing else, it changes old and dingy to fresh and new. This is a relatively inexpensive way to update your home and add value.

The exterior of a house cannot be neglected either, and value can be added here without ripping out the front stoop and repaving the driveway. Replacing that dated or worn front door can make a tremendous improvement in the way your home looks from the curb. Changing old and worn light fixtures is another way to update and freshen your home’s exterior. Adding foundation shrubs, bushes, and flowers is another smart and inexpensive way to boost your home’s value, while adding a whole lot of curb appeal.

Inside the home, studies have shown that chrome fixtures are highly preferred to the more dated gold fixtures and that a fixed glass screen is preferred over a shower curtain. If you plan to add window treatments, simple blinds are the most popular choice. You may also consider changing your bathroom and kitchen drawer pulls and light fixtures with more modern choices. You may be surprised to see just how much it can transform the look of the room.
