Whether you’re selling your home in the Tampa Bay area or you’re just ready to make a few little improvements here and there, these 5 DIY updates are definitely worth considering.
The best part? You can get each of them done in a weekend.
5 Easy DIY Updates for Your Tampa Bay Area Home
Little improvements can increase your home’s value by a wide margin—and when they’re cost-effective and simple to do, they’re almost always worth the effort.
DIY Update #1: Put a No-Touch Faucet in the Kitchen
You can find amazing no-touch faucets at just about every home improvement store in Pasco, Pinellas, and Hillsborough County. Most of them are between $75 and $200, and because you already have existing plumbing in your kitchen, you can install one yourself.
DIY Update #2: Upgrade Drawer Pulls and Cabinet Handles
Be honest: you don’t even pay attention to your drawer pulls and cabinet handles. However, you probably would if they were a little more modern—and so will potential buyers when it comes time to sell. For under $50, you can re-outfit all the handles in an entire kitchen while adding a bright, fresh, new look.
DIY Update #3: Get Rid of Fluorescent Lights in Your Bathroom
Nobody wants to get ready for work under the most unflattering lights ever invented, so swap out those bulbs for something warmer. Just a note: pink-tinted lights make you look more youthful.
DIY Update #4: Upgrade Your Bathroom Mirror
The builder left the mirror in the bathroom the same way as it was when it came out of its packing materials—it’s not even framed. Either frame it yourself or replace it with an entirely new mirror; in either case, you’ll be doing your bathroom (and your resale value) a big favor.
DIY Update #5: Paint Your Front Door and Shutters
As long as your HOA doesn’t care, paint the front door and shutters in a bright, vibrant color that really gives your home some pizzazz.
