It is not necessary to spend thousands of dollars to remodel and refurbish your home before selling. You can find DIY makes a giant statement with just some TLC.  Whether you are selling your home, having visitors or you are just feeling drab about your space. Here are a few quick tips to use to refresh and rejuvenate home. 

CLEAN + DECLUTTER
Until you dig in, we forget how much stuff we hide and accumulate. Sometimes it is hard to even hide after a while. Once you throw out all the junk, you will begin to see the features of your home again. You may even decide to stay and not sell. Store the things you want and don't use and get rid of the rest. Once you have de-cluttered, it is time to clean. Clean,  Clean, Clean everything especially walls, floors, and windows.
 
BRING IN THE NATURAL LIGHT
If you have heavy window coverings, take them down! Seriously! This one thing makes your home feel much larger,  and they will come alive with all of the natural light.

ADD FRESH PAINT
Nothing reinvigorates a home like a modern coat of paint. If you have old dull colors, opt for lighter tones. Covering stains on the walls, or dingy paint can make your house feel like a new place. 

ADD TILE
Adding a Tile backsplash in your Kitchen or Bathroom makes a great statement for little cost. It can easily be a DIY project. Lowes teaches classes on How To?
Make sure you purchase tiles that will compliment your color scheme and be inviting. Again, Lowes, Home Depot, and many local outlets have great suggestions to help you with color and style. 

ADD COLOR
Neutral colors are recommended as the base of your home decor but don't be intimidated to compliment your neutrals with that favorite pop of color. You can add this color here and there throughout the home with flowers, pillows, decor, or even light and airy curtains staged to the edge of your windows. 

CHANGE OUT FIXTURES + HARDWARE
You'd be surprised by how much more a kitchen can look different just by replacing the hardware on the cabinets. A bathroom or living room can come alive again by installing a brand new light fixture. If you moved into a place that still has the same stock hardware, replace them and add a little creativity with the new pieces you have installed. 

RE-ARRANGE FURNITURE
Need Ideas? Head to Pinterest and get inspired for a new living room, bedroom, or dining room arrangements. Most homeowners decorate "incorrectly" when it comes to standard staging rules. View a variety of furniture set-ups on social media and let it motivate you to rearrange your space. You don't have to buy a bunch of new furniture to make a drastic change.

The only drawback to these tips for the Home Seller, you may fall in love with you home again which makes parting such sweet sorrow. It will sell when the buyer feels the love.
