Increase total home value with simple living space improvements.

When facing the daunting task up updating a house, many homeowners tend to put off renovations and upgrades to a later date. If you are not ready to give up your living space for an extended period of time in order to perform a major home overhaul, you may want to instead consider the benefits of investing some of your time to increase total home value with simple living space improvements.


The following DIY jobs can be started and completed in one weekend, and still add significant value to your property as a whole.

Brighten a Space

Making your home brighter can have a great effect on the appearance of your interior space as a whole.

Lightening up your living area brings a clean feeling to the inside and helps it to look new and fresh. To keep your home looking bright inside, replace old lights with bright energy-saving bulbs. This will add much needed light while improving your home’s energy-consciousness.

Other ways to brighten your home’s interior include repainting walls with a fresh coat of paint, or lightening kitchen cabinet colors with a white or cream finish.

Update a Room

If the thought of home improvement sounds overwhelming, try focusing on only updating one room at a time. Doing so can help you to manage your stress while working within your allotted budget.

A fifties' child, mom, wife, avid genealogy researcher, web contributor and author/owner of four blogs including Empty Nest Ancestry, Feathering the Empty Nest, Top Web Blog Tips, Job Bully, and our extensive family genealogy database site at Blythe Genealogy.


This is one of my four blogs:

I'm a wife and mother, with a wonderful husband and two great 'kids' who are now young adults, and we live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada - in the great city of Chilliwack, to be exact (one hour from Vancouver).

Feathering the Empty Nest is my 'baby' that I have been nurturing and building or four years - ever since taking medical retirement from my government job because of disability issues. As a result, general health and well being, and losing weight are a concern for me and are therefore topics covered here. I also discuss marriage, raising a family (especially military families like ours) including parenting teens,adult children (or, if you prefer - parenting young adults living at home) as well as parenting children of all ages.

Of course, I can't forget our lovable, furry family members. Pet ownership is wonderful - especially once our kids have moved out on their own, so there is discussion about responsible pet ownership and care. Lifestyle changes that come with raising a family, retirement, and health issues, in addition to how these affect other aspects of our lives such as housekeeping, cooking and shopping matter a great deal. Being the lazy housekeeper and indifferent cook that I am, learning how to save money while still eating well has meant finding easy cooking recipes, experimenting with online grocery shopping and sharing invaluable household hints and tips.Our home remains our castle, whether our kids live here or elsewhere and home ownership and renovations, diy home projects and repair tips and hints play a large role.

Weave all of this together with humorous stories of children, pets, family life, marriage and any other silly little thing I can think of, and you have 'Feathering the Empty Nest.'
