How Doors and Trim can Increase the Value of your Home

Are you looking to sell your home? Or are just looking for ways to upgrade your home? We have some great ways to add value to your home and give you tips on how to make your house more appealing to sell.


Something that is small but can truly make a difference in your home is trim and baseboards. If your current trim and/or baseboards are poorly installed or damaged, it creates the appearance of the “old and cheap” look. Clean, sleek trim could improve your home’s value and by upgrading it will help you sell your home faster and possibly, for more money.


Adding crown moulding gives a finishing touch to any room, but it also enhances the resale value of your home! Crown moulding looks elegant in every home, from traditional to minimalistic, it blends in beautifully with the room. It is suitable for any type of edge and room shape and frames the room as well as adds visual interest.


By adding new trim work or wainscotting to your home can make a significant difference! It can not only add value to your home, but also make an average home look custom. Metrie did a survey for real estate professionals and found that 97% of respondents said that mouldings and trim affected the overall price of the home. As well as 62% said trim is among the most important factors to a home’s visual appeal and 90% were likely to recommend an upgrade to the client about trim. (Metrie, Best Home Improvement ROI 2018)

New doors can change the whole appeal of your home. Updating your old, brown flat panel wood doors to a newer more modern style can really change your home from feeling dated to a contemporary, sleek look. A new door doesn’t do much if you still have the same old hardware on them. You should replace your door hardware when you are replacing your doors to make sure they are both new and upgraded.
