DIY Projects for Your Alaskan Home That Will Actually Pay Off

Now that we're all spending more time at home, there have been plenty of hours to watch home improvement TV and real estate reality shows, contemplating how you can put your DIY skills to work.

But before you grab a paintbrush or do anything drastic, you'll want to know there are several DIY projects you can do to your Alaskan home that will actually pay off at resale. 

Below are five home improvement projects Alaskan homeowners can do to improve their property's overall appeal to future homebuyers in Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla, North Pole, and beyond:

Makeover your cabinets
There is no doubt that kitchens and bathrooms often sell homes. One easy project you can do to makeover your kitchen is to refresh your cabinets. As long as the cabinets are in good shape, you can add a coat of paint or stain for a fast revamp, just take your time to ensure a clean, smooth finish.

Boost your curb appeal
Before Alaskan buyers even set foot in your home, they'll need to be intrigued. Make a great first impression by updating the landscaping in your Alaskan home's yard or even just cleaning up any lawn debris (sticks, dead flowers, weeds) that may be getting in the way of an inviting feel.

Refresh your front door
Just as you can easily makeover your cabinets with a coat of paint, you'll want to take that same mentality to the front door. Refresh your home's feel with new paint on the door, maybe even choosing a bold or contrasting color to the rest of your home's exterior.

Create an outdoor space
With Alaskan residents spending more time at home, they'll be looking for ways to change the scenery— without leaving their own property. Create an outdoor living space with new patio furniture, maybe a fire pit, canopy, or deck to allow for outdoor enjoyment and expanding the usable living space of your home.

Brighten the basement
Is your Alaskan home's basement dark and dreary? Spraying the walls and ceiling with a flat paint can make a huge difference in cleaning up the look. Buyers will also be able to better envision how they would use the space, either as a home gym, rec room, or play area for kids.
