There is something awesome about buying a fixer upper and doing the renovations yourself. Some people fix them up a bit at a time, using cash as they have it available. If you want to make a big impact by doing small things, here are 10 things you need to include.

1. Change Out the Lighting

Nothing says outdated like an old-fashioned gold chandelier. Lighting is something that can be updated easily and won’t cost a bunch of money. It is one of the smallest things you can do that will have the biggest impact.

2. Paint

There is an old saying that states “if a barn needs to be painted, slap some paint on it.” You will be amazed at what some paint can do to your home. A new hue can cover imperfections and give the room the blast of color it needs. Forget drab, white walls that are lackluster. Give your home a color makeover.

3. New Fixtures

Just like the lighting, the fixtures in the home become outdated quickly. Start with the kitchen faucet and then move on to the bathroom. You can update and upgrade a fixer upper by just adding these small touches.

4. Paint Cabinets/Add New Hardware

If you have new cabinets in the budget, then you should go for it. However, if your budget is limited, then you may want to try to paint them. Painting old cabinets and installing new hardware will give the kitchen a facelift. If the cabinets are old but sturdy, then you can bring them back to life. Painting is inexpensive and has a huge impact.

5. Rip Out Old Carpeting

Carpet is great when it is new; however, when it is old and dingy, it can really have a negative impact on a space. Hardwoods are the best option, followed by laminate floors. However, if you are stretched for money, you may try a bag floor or a penny style one. There are creative options online that allow you to do great things with your floors for less.

6. Add Curb Appeal

The curb appeal of the home is everything. It does not matter how great the inside looks if the outside is in shambles. Clean up any dead plants and add some new. Be sure to pick flowers and shrubs that bloom at different times. This will allow you to have color year-round. Add some shutters and a fresh coat of paint to the porch. Use decorative numbers to display the address. Finally, replace the mailbox if necessary.

7. Repaint Ceilings

Ceilings are often overlooked. They are usually white and the color is reserved for the walls. However, people do not realize how dirty these ceilings can be. A fresh coat of paint on the ceiling can really enhance the whole room. The walls are not the only thing that needs to be painted.

8. Upgrade the Exterior Façade

The biggest impact you can have on the outside of a home is to replace or paint siding. If you have it in the budget, you can add brick and stone accents. Most fixer upper homes have chipping paint and worn out siding. Splurge for some nice siding or paint a great color to update the home’s look.

9. Replace the Windows

New windows are expensive, but they are important. If you have old windows in your home, you need to spend the money to upgrade them. Windows are great for keeping the elements at bay. You will save yourself money in the long run by sealing off old-drafty openings.

10. Update the Heating and Cooling Unit

To help the process of heating and cooling a home, you need to make sure the home has an updated HVAC unit. The air filters are just as important as the unit. Filters with a rating of Merv 11, have "astro pleating" to help ensure no dirt or dust gets into your system. Extend the livelihood of your unit by selecting quality air filters.

    Rip Out Old Carpeting – well not all old carpets are to be thrown away. Some of them hadn’t worn off to the point of no repair. In that case, a deep steam or dry cleaning followed by some special fibre protection would restore some the carpet’s appearance.

  2. Larry Brewer March 30, 2017 at 10:30 am -

    In my market, these things will insure that the seller gets top dollar and a quick sale. Replacing the windows is the only one I would hesitate to do if the ones installed were in decent condition.
    This is one of the most practical articles I’ve read in a long time.

  3. Nick Raineri March 31, 2017 at 3:22 pm -

    Great list of easy improvements to make. These may seem like small things but they have a big impact! Great post!

  4. Mandy Lane Kinney April 1, 2017 at 10:06 am -

    Except replacing windows! Don’t waste your money!
    Windows in homes built in the 1940’s and before, are a treasure, some over 100 years old, still functioning!
    Replacement windows might last 10 to 20 years. replacing broken seals cost hundreds of dollars per window!
    I agree, Put your money into Paint, new lighting, fixtures, hardware, appliances, refinish hardwood floors, & curb appeal!

    Adding curb appeal changes everything about a home’s property. It’s amazing what simply cleaning up the front garden, trimming the trees or regularly mowing and seeding the lawn will do to improve the aesthetics of a home.

    These are great suggestions. Something else you want to consider is Air Duct Cleaning. Old houses, especially fixer uppers, probably haven’t been cleaned well and may have more dust/dirt than usual!

    My friend flips houses in Kelowna BC after fixing them up and he always prefers buying houses with appliances already installed, even if they’re broken, because he can raise the price substantially if it has modern appliances that work. Just a cool tip most people don’t think about.

    In addition to all of the great ideas you’ve called out, another way to improve the exterior of your home is to invest in periodic tree care to help keep your foliage well maintained and healthy!

  82. Plano Roof Repair April 25, 2020 at 4:47 pm -

    Definitely agree with all the tips here and would add that roof repairs are not necessarily going to increase curb appeal or home value, but will make sure your home is safe and functional and won’t depreciate.

  83. Bathroom Remodel Fort Worth April 25, 2020 at 4:52 pm -

    Yes, painting cabinets is a great simple and inexpensive thing you can do to update your kitchen or bathrooms. That’s a great option if your cabinets are still in good shape and can be refinished. However, you might need to replace or reface some cabinetry if not in optimal condition.

    Do you know the cost of a new bathtub? They are pretty high. But your bathtub can look like a new one. Bathtub refinishing will cost you a fraction and save you from all the hassle of replacing your old bathtub.

  91. Fence installers May 15, 2020 at 3:37 pm -

    Great post. I like that you touched on the curb appeal point. A lot of homeowners focus solely on their home’s interior aesthetics, but neglect their exterior home. Having a neat and beautiful exterior will lead to a great first impression and a sneak peak of the level of upkeep maintained inside the home!

    Do not underestimate the power of curb appeal! I have flipped several houses and made lots of money and not even touched the inside of the home. Some fresh landscaping and creative TLC and you’re grabbing peoples eyes from the road because your front of the house is so inviting and beautiful!

    The article is written as though an average homeowner knows all about renovations. We do this work a lot, and even with homebuyers who have some construction experience, always 100% of the time over the last 35 years we find an inclination to make wrong decisions.
