DIY’s to Increase Home Value: Paint

Feeling adventurous? Try some of these home improvement paint DIY’s.

by MIKE HALL, Owner/Broker/Agent

  • Re-paint your front door. Add some eye-catching color for a new updated façade.
  • Paint over old dingy tiles. You can find specific oil-paint for tiles. A simple all-white approach or black and white tile is a classic.
  • Paint outlet and light switch plates to match background color.
  • Re-paint your kitchen cabinets. This goes for bathroom cabinets as well. Buying new cabinets is expensive. If your cabinets are still a sturdy quality, just give a few coats of fresh paint. Sticking with white or light neutral colors will offer a bright, clean feel.
  • Re-paint your dated faucets. Stuck with dated gold faucets? All you need is some guard tape, a primer and oil-based paint.
  • Paint dated bathtub. Does your bathtub happen to be baby blue, or powder pink? Sand the sucker down and buy a bathtub painting kit for another oil-based paint throwdown.
