There are lots of inexpensive fixes you can make within your home without costing loads of money. With many of us spending more time at home these days, why not take this opportunity to add value to your property, and enhance the quality of your life.

Here are 3 easy home improvements that only require some elbow grease and a little time and money.


The easiest and most cost-effective improvement you can make to your home interior is to paint it. A beautifully painted room looks fresh and clean and this, in turn, adds value.

Now is a great time to freshen up dated-looking rooms, tatty doors or even tackle that old deck you’ve been meaning paint for years.

If you’re thinking about selling in the future, consider using neutral and light interior colours as they are the most appealing to potential buyers.


Clutter is not only a big turn-off, it could give the impression that the property suffers from a lack of no natural light. In addition, too much furniture can make a property seem a lot smaller than it actually is, and this could ultimately impact your back pocket.

To add value, incorporate stylish storage options that are both beautiful and practical. Floating shelves, for example, provide space to show your treasured bits and pieces without over cluttering. Modern cabinets that are also elegant, can store items out of sight while still looking nice.

Creating clutter-free, minimalistic living spaces will add value to your property and improve the overall feel of your home – making it much more enjoyable to live in.

Spruce up Outdoor Space

Useable outdoor space can add much more than just value to your home – it can also add quality to your life. According to 86% of buyers, one of the most important aspects of a property, is the outdoor space.

A lush lawn is a huge drawcard to potential buyers! So, if your lawn is littered with bare or brown patches you may need to over ‘sow it. Boxes of seed are inexpensive and available from your local Coles, Woolworths or Bunnings. It may take some time to grow, but it’s a very cheap and effective way to add value to your property.

HANDY TIP: Weeding and re-edging your garden while you’re at it, is a very inexpensive way to improve your gardens overall look!
