To increment and decrement an integer column value in Laravel, you can make use of the built-in method available to every Laravel Eloquent or through the DB query builder.

DB Query Builder
Using the DB query builder it would look like below.

DB::table('posts')->increment('count', 10);


DB::table('posts')->decrement('count', 10);

Laravel Eloquent
The other way is by using the eloquent model.

Post::find(1)->increment('count', 10);


Post::find(1)->decrement('count', 10);
