Whether you’re selling your home or just hoping to spruce up your living space, home improvement projects can very pricey, very quickly.
Making your home more attractive doesn’t have to cost thousands, though.
For even less than $100, you can upgrade your living space, make your home more marketable, and create a big impact.
Inexpensive Home Improvement Projects
For the most part, these projects can be completed in a single weekend using easy-to-find supplies at materials. You don’t need advanced carpentry skills or expensive tools, and if you want, you can enlist the help of your family members.
1: Spruce Up Your Front Door
You’d be surprised how much difference a fresh coat of paint can make.
The front door of your house is one of the first things visitors see when they come to your home, and it has a major impact on your curb appeal.
Refresh your front door with a new color, some updated hardware, and maybe even a couple of potted plants or a pair of statues to frame your entry and create a welcoming feeling.
Painting your front door adds some unexpected charm to your home and sets the mood for your guests. Choose a bold color that contrasts with your existing color scheme like a rich red, sunny yellow, or even a bold violet.
2: Update Your Kitchen Cabinets
Replacing your kitchen cabinets can get pricey, but updating your existing cabinets with paint and hardware is both economical and effective.
When builders put up housing developments, they use the cheapest supplies available to get houses done quickly and cheaply. Those builder grade cabinets are designed to be adequate – not attractive.
A new set of handles, a bright paint color, and a weekend of sanding and painting can transform your kitchen without the work of a full remodel.
If you really want to make a change, try adding a tile backsplash over your countertops.
3: Beautify Your Bathroom
Like your kitchen cabinets, your builder-grade bathroom mirror is, at best, tolerable.
Turn your bathroom sink into a posh vanity by framing your mirrors, updating your light fixtures, and maybe even adding a pretty tile accent.
Vanity lights are another elegant addition, but if you’re not up to an electrical project, it might be best to leave that to the pros.
