You don’t have to do a major renovation or complete an addition on your home to increase the home value. While bigger changes will still yield a bigger increase in value, there are plenty of small updates and upgrades you can make to improve the resale value of your home. In fact, there’s even one that requires very few tools: upgrading your doors.
Whether you have an exterior door that’s cracked, scuffed and dented, or interior doors that don’t add anything to your home stylistically, an upgrade can make a big difference.
Here are a few instances when you should consider a door upgrade:
- For curb appeal. If your current front door doesn’t help your house stand out, you aren’t likely to attract the right buyer. Upgrading to a new, stylish exterior door can increase the curb appeal and value of your home.
- For natural light. If there’s a transition room in your home that could be separated by French doors, consider upgrading to brighten your area. Letting in more light makes spaces feel larger and more open.
- For modern style. If your closet currently has a rickety bifold that’s difficult to open and close, upgrade to something sleeker and more modern — either a refreshed bifold or a sliding barn door.
- For that new feeling. If your interior doors are showing a lot of wear and tear, embrace the new and see what a difference it can make in the feel of your home.
For minimal effort and investment, upgrading your doors can make a significant difference in the value of your home. Trust us: once you see the new look, you won’t regret it.
