If you're a first time home buyer, you may be taking advantage of residential financing to finalize the sale and make a few repairs to your new house. While there may be a number of projects on your to-do list, choosing a few small, cosmetic undertakings can help you to increase the look and value of your home.

Switching out cabinet knobs
Even if a kitchen has brand-new appliances, outdates cabinets can make it look old. Consider replacing existing cabinet knobs with a more modern hardware alternative. Switching out all of the knobs can update the look of the cabinets and bring your kitchen space into the 21st century.

Replace broken floor tiles
Like hardwood, tiling can be an upscale addition to a room within your home. If the house came with tiled floors, but a few are chipped, try to find a match in a home improvement supply store and make the change yourself. Removing the old tiles and grout will clear the space needed to easily replace them with new versions.

If you did not previously secure residential lending, exploring opportunities for home improvement financing with Home Loan Investment Bank could help you to find the additional funds needed to improve your home's aesthetic and overall value.
