Give your rental a whole new look with inexpensive updates and cosmetic fixes
Give new life to dingy grout.
Use a tile grout refresher, it looks like a shoe polish applicator — tap the paint over dingy bathroom or kitchen grout, wait 4 hours, then wiped away the excess. Old floors look just like new for about $12.
Update light fixtures for a new look.
Cheap brass fixtures can make a home look dated and tired. Head to your local home improvement store and purchase updated fixtures to bring new life into a room.
Change those knobs and pulls
Just because the Kitchen and Bath are filled with stock cabinetry doesn't mean it can't be customized. New knobs and pulls can bring a fresh new look to two of the most important rooms in the house.
Add crown moldings
Crown molding makes it to the top of most remodeling lists because it adds charm and value to a home. The dining room, master bedroom or family room would be a good place to start, making your rental feel more like home and adding unique appeal.
Spruce up the entry
A new front door or just a coat of paint to the existing one can add immediate appeal to your rental. Clear all debris and give the porch a quick clean to welcome a potential tenant.
