This Graphic Shows You Quick Home Improvement Projects You Can Tackle

Sure, some home repairs increase your value, but not all of us have time for a massive kitchen renovation. This infographic will walk you through some of the ways to improve your home — and its value — in your spare time.

Most of the improvements are easy enough for most people, even if you don't consider yourself much of a DIY person. For example, the graphic suggests picking up an auto-mower if you have the right kind of yard for one, or adding a few window boxes with some flowers to brighten up the facade of your home. They also suggest adding dimmer switches to major rooms where a little soft light can improve the mood.

The guide also has some more questionable suggestions (mirrors "create energy?" and desks shouldn't face walls?) so take them with a grain of salt and apply the ones that make sense for your space and style. Even some of the questionable ones (mirrors can make a small space feel larger and brighten it up) can have some practical application. Check out the full image below, or hit the link below to see the graphic at QuickQuid.

    I love brown, grey, white and brown.

      I prefer resale value over personal happiness.

    I wish I lived in a house with windows that only took seconds to clean!

    err, no?

      I think you'll find any wiring which involves 240v current must be done by a qualified electrician, including (ridiculously) light switches and power points.

    Yeah, I just leave an auto-mower running around my backyard. Sure, we've gone through a few dogs and the veggies haven't been the same since, but by God the house looks great.

    Oh my hat. How tacky do chrome wall plates look?!

    hmmm a $2000+ auto mower... Still need to "let it out" to get to the front yard at which point one of the neighbours will more than likely steal it.

    Now I also need to go out and buy some paint as my house is all the one colour.
