Most homeowners automatically consider the big, expensive projects when they start to renovate a house. Before you spend a single dollar, it’s smart to consider some cheaper (yet high ROI) options. Whether you’re preparing to list your home or simply want to update the aesthetic, the American Windows team recommends you consider a project’s value. Read on for three of our go-to strategies for increasing property value without running up the credit card. 

A Fresh Coat of Paint on the Interior and Exterior

Every single real estate agent, contractor and home improvement company will tell you an on-trend coat of paint goes a long way. In 2020, it’s smart to stick with whites and neutrals. Most buyers gravitate toward a house that looks move-in ready. Alternatively, paint is a cheap way to renew your love for your house when you feel it’s time to switch things up. 


We recommend you spend a little extra money upfront on the high-quality paint. The difference between cheap paint and a top-of-the-line brand/line is multiple coats and hours of time. Paint is a great way to transform dull kitchen cabinets, dark rooms and bleak exteriors. 

Window Treatments Can Transform Any Room

The right curtains, shades or shutters can take any home into the twenty-first century. If you already have beautiful and functional windows, the next step is to dress them up. Talk with your local window treatment supplier to find the right choice for your price range. 


If you don’t have upgraded windows right now, your first step is to save your money for important window updates. Modern windows offer a level of energy efficiency that offers comfort and lower utility bills. Discuss your window options with an American Window Products team member today.  

Small Kitchen Updates Make a Difference

We’re not talking about brand new appliances, cabinet replacement or new tile floors. We know the value of contemporary kitchen fixtures like new knobs and a nice faucet. Many older kitchens feature style details that don’t bode well with today’s preferred look. 


Head to your local retailer to find fixtures you love. If you plan to sell your home anytime soon, it’s smart to consider what a buyer might prefer. Another great resource for affordable hardware is Amazon.
