When looking to make upgrades in your house, you want to get the largest return for it. Easing the costs on upgrades without lowering the quality is possible!

Lowe's is offering a 10% discount opportunity for purchases up to $5,000!

Here are some ideas for simple upgrades in your home that will make a big difference and help catch the buyers eye!

Upgrade your lighting fixtures
   Old and outdated lighting fixtures are a real hindrance when trying to sell your home, no matter the other upgrades, it ages your home. Buyers want to see the finished product, to see a home, not a project. Also, make sure your bulbs are nice and bright, but not fluorescent.The bright lights will enhance the feeling of a clean home.

You can find all of the lighting offered by Lowe's here, beginning with their featured lighting.

Upgrade the cabinets and drawers
   Are your kitchen and bathrooms looking a little worn out nor dated but you don't want to splurge on a renovation in a house you are ready to leave behind? Here is an idea to upgrade both without the huge costs! Give your drawers and cabinets a paint job, a fresh coat of paint can make them look brand new, and at the very least, a little newer. Just remember to take your time on the paint job, don't rush it and leave little blemishes, the buyers will notice. Another idea is to buy new hardware. Lowe's carries a lot of different hardware you can use. Find a few you like, buy one of each and go home and change a few to decide which one you like the most.

Look here for all of you hardware needs.
If you decide to paint your cabinets as well, this link takes you to all of the Interior Paints provided by Lowe's.

Organize yourself
   Let's face it, if you have kids, the laundry room can become a scary place. Organization is the key to making this room a little less daunting. Instead of having one big basket, consider buying a laundry organizer, it will not only be more sightly, but it will make your life easier as well. You can also add shelving to place folded clothing on. Since this is a laundry room, shelving will be relatively cheap because you don't need anything too fancy, just a clean and simple organizer.  Another idea is this all in one organizer.
   The same idea goes for the garage, which can also become a hectic portion of the home, here Lowe's has great products to make your garage as orderly as the rest of your home.
