This beautiful weather is helping Long Island homeowners stage their houses for open houses. If you’re staying inside this summer to beat the heat, it doesn’t mean you have to shelve your home sales plans.


The following are 4 easy value-adding projects you can tackle in a weekend.

Put a splash of color in your home

Walls do not have to be boring. While stark white walls are always fashionable if you are looking to sell or simply want an environment that’s more lively to live in, try painting the walls. If you feel particularly adventurous, consider painting an accent wall.

Create a lively home garden

You get many benefits from having plants in your home: they clean up your air, help improve your mental health, and they are beautiful! Putting together a veggie garden in your backyard can also intrigue buyers since the work has already been completed for them, and as a bonus, vegetable gardens often lead to healthier eating, so do not be afraid to roll up your sleeves and get dirty!

Make your counters stand out with a backsplash

Would you like to add a touch of elegance to your kitchen? With a countertop backsplash kit from online or your local hardware store, you can do this quickly and easily. Whether you prefer brick-and-mortar or decorative pieces of tile, you will be preparing zesty Italian meals in your very own villa in just an afternoon.

Create a beautiful memory wall

It can be tricky to put hundreds of photos of your family around your house without making it look cluttered. Consider having a memory wall that you can fill with all your photos and make it easy to look back on all your memories. Grab some frames from the second-hand store and a can of spray paint to create matching frames that look custom-made. Attach the framed pictures to the wall with some no-damage adhesive hooks and your memory wall is all done!

Stain your deck

Has your wooden deck lost its luster over the years? Nothing brings more life back into your curb appeal than a freshly cleaned and stained deck. Now is your chance to try out a fresh new shade, while the weather is cooperating. All the tools you need are economically friendly, and easy to source from your local hardware store. People will be knocking on your door in no time eager to see the rest of your home.
