Ready to give your home a makeover? Expert Scottsdale real estate agents bring you this list of projects to improve livability as well as increase your property values:

Declutter and organize

Pre-pandemic, our busy lives may have gotten the better of us. If all of your stuff has piled up over the years, now’s the time to finally declutter and organize. This quick and budget-friendly activity simply involves going through your shelves, drawers, and cabinets and clearing out what you don’t need anymore. Label things as you go to create an orderly storage system.

Are there clothes in your closet that you no longer wear? What about things such as gadgets, small appliances, or even furniture that you can do without? Sort out what you want to throw away, give away, or repurpose.

Reorganizing can improve your mood because clutter is a source of stress and anxiety. With a cleaner space, you can feel so much happier in your home.

Redecorate your space

Want to give your home a new look? Simply moving around your tables and chairs can change the whole feel of a space. But since you have more time on your hands, why not swap your old furniture and accessories out for brand new? A new sofa or shelf can go a long way towards giving your home a fresh look, and a total makeover can easily be done by buying some furniture online.

Repaint your walls to give your interiors a facelift. Choose lighter colors like beige or yellow to make your spaces look bigger. Or create an accent wall to inject some personality into the room. If you’re not too keen on paint, wallpaper is a great alternative.

Update your lighting

Lighting can affect the overall visual appeal of the home and helps with mood and ambiance. It’s one of the most important aspects to consider when boosting your property’s appeal. Updating your lighting fixtures will help improve aesthetics. And if you’re still using old, dated incandescent lighting in your living spaces, it’s time you spruce things up with more energy-efficient LED alternatives. Even better, try smart home lighting that will let you control each of your fixtures using an app.

Start planting

Staying cooped up indoors all day for days on end can lead to cabin fever. If you feel the urge to step outdoors, planting flowers in your yard can be a happy compromise.

Your home’s exterior is bound to benefit from working your green thumb magic. A profusion of flowers or some nice shrubbery can help keep your landscape interesting and will certainly increase your home’s curb appeal.

Gardening is a wonderful hobby that’s sure to prove hugely satisfying while you’re under quarantine. You don’t even need a large patch of land: A small corner of your backyard or even a sunny windowsill can be a great place to grow plants. You can even grow herbs or vegetables and enjoy your own fresh produce.
