Did you know that American homeowners spent 522 billion dollars on improvement projects between 2017 and 2019? With the increased cost of construction materials, it’s more important now than ever to be able to maintain your property on a budget.

Attracting renters to your property can be easy if you have the right things. Specific areas and rooms of your commercial property need to be maintained to bring in potential tenants.

Property managers considering improving their rentals should keep reading; there are simple tips and tricks to upgrade your space below!

Beautify Your Property With Painting

 

Repaint Common Areas
One way to beautify your property on a budget is by painting. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for the appearance of any room. You can either hire a professional painter or do it yourself if you feel up to the challenge. If you decide to go the DIY route, be sure to purchase high-quality paint so that the job will last.

Don’t Underestimate The Power of Landscaping

Another great way to beautify your property without spending a lot of money is by landscaping. You can add some beautiful flowers and plants to your yard without spending a lot of money. If you’re not sure where to start, consider hiring a professional landscaper who can help you choose the right plants for your space.

Think About Interior Design

An additional way to spruce up your property on a budget is by adding some new furniture. You don’t have to go out and buy all new furniture, but simply adding a few pieces here and there can really change the look of a room. If you’re not sure what kind of furniture to buy, consider consulting with a professional interior designer who can help you choose pieces that will complement your space.

Rooms To Consider

 

Areas To Consider
Several rooms and locations within your commercial property will attract renters. But have you heard the phrase “curb appeal“? That is the starting point if you’re looking to beautify your commercial property.

Curb

Make sure that the yard gets watered and the landscaping maintained. Your landscaping doesn’t need to be something luxurious, but it needs to be something easily maintained that will attract tenants. Also, give the door a fresh coat of paint and add some potted flowers. Plant flowers by the mailbox if possible. These additions will make the front of your rental property look more inviting.

Kitchen

The kitchen is the home’s gathering place, and it has to be a functional space. Consider upgrading appliances if possible, and make sure there is plenty of storage space. A splash of color or an exciting backsplash can make all the difference to the kitchen’s appearance. Consider something as simple as contact paper in the drawers and cabinets to improve the look.

Bathroom

The bathroom is one of the most utilized spaces in the house, so it needs to be inviting and practical. A cost-effective option could be as simple as repainting the cabinets in a more modern color. Also, ensure that everything is working correctly before bringing renters into the space. Add shelves above the toilet or a wine rack for towel storage to increase the room’s utility.

Patio/Flooring

If there is a patio or porch on your commercial property, try sprucing it up with a stencil and painting a design on the concrete. Restaining the wood would provide a cost-effective upgrade to the outside area if there is a deck. Flooring in the home can be upgraded reasonably cheap, considering what you already have. If you have linoleum flooring, there are peel-and-stick tile options to help improve the space without permanently changing anything.
