The quick fix for this is to check out places liked Home Depot or Lowe’s where you can find affordable fixture options that are simple and DIY.

Carpeting can show dirt and stains and can be a turnoff for buyers. If you cannot afford to switch the carpets to hardwood, have the carpets professionally cleaned before showing the home. If you are willing to have the carpets switched out focus on the first floor of the home.

If your home was built before 1980s, it may be necessary to test the ceiling for asbestos. If you are considering this update, definitely get the help of a professional.
