If you were hoping to sell this year, but have been advised to stay put, take advantage of the extra time and make some small, environmentally friendly improvements now that can pay off later.
Blinds Chalet offers a few suggestions for home improvement:
- Installing new blinds or window treatments not only adds a splash of color and a new style, but can make a home more energy efficient. Window treatments are the number one way to increase energy efficiency in older homes. With many affordable options, energy efficiency can be a great selling tool. Look for roman shades and honeycomb cellular shades which are some of the most efficient. You may also qualify for a tax credit.
- Combine new window treatments with a fresh coat of paint for a room that feels like new. Neutral colors are suggested. Look for low VOC paint which is environmentally friendly.
- Re-planting a garden with new bushes and flowers gives a completely new appearance to the home. With water shortages and droughts a big topic, sustainable landscaping not only saves on water usage but creates a more natural habitat for the environment. Consider native annuals, natural grasses and wildflowers that can survive on rainfall instead of sprinklers.
