Little Touches to Breathe New Life Into Your Home

Updated Fixtures Offer a Simple Way to Breathe New Life into Your Space

If your home is currently on the market—or you’re getting ready to list it—you want it to be in the best shape possible to attract the most people and get the best price. Setting your home apart from the competition often means making some changes or adding some value to the space. One easy way to do this is by replacing the fixtures throughout the home.

To get started, go around the house and make a list of all the fixtures that have been incorporated into the space, including lighting, faucets and doorknobs. It’s also a good idea to make note of any problems or irregularities you may find, and determine what, if anything, needs to be replaced.

Once you’ve made note of which fixtures need to be updated, it’s as simple as going to your local home improvement store, buying updated models and doing some easy DIY projects. If you’re unsure about how to replace fixtures, YouTube is a great place to start.

If you’re looking to change the nuance of a room and really brighten up a dark area, replacing lights should be at the top of your list. Whether it’s adding a chandelier, dimmers or even switching up light plates, new lighting can make a big difference.

If you’re thinking of making fixture changes within the bathroom, make sure everything matches. For instance, if you’re upgrading the faucets in the sink, you should complete the room with new faucets for the bathtub and shower as well. Adding a rain shower is also very in vogue these days.

As for doorknobs, changing these out is a simple way to add a bit of shine or style to a room. Keep the look consistent by using the same knobs throughout each room—or even the entire home.

When updating fixtures, there’s no need to spend a fortune. In fact, there are plenty of low-cost options that will not only look great, but will go a long way toward attracting buyers.
