by David Sanders 05/05/2019

Upgrading the look and feel of your home doesn’t mean you have to break the bank. You can actually carry out a lot of home improvement plans on your home even when you are on a budget. Check this list below for the top 7 home improvement ideas you can execute. As an added benefit, they may come in handy if you decide to sell your house and you are looking to get more value from it.

  1. Add a fresh coat of paint to your front door and rooms. Repainting any place always has that feel of newness that it brings with it. You can make even the ugliest of walls come alive by adding a new coat of paint. Little wonder repainting is the most carried out home improvement hack.
  2. Install new wallpaper. Removable wallpapers are another fancy way of making your rooms look new. If you have a great eye for matching colors and patterns, you might consider buying yourself nicely designed wallpaper that matches the rest of your decorations. You could even decide to get a piece of wall art that matches your wallpaper.
  3. Change the lighting. The ambiance light fixtures give to a house can do a great deal of changing the way a home feels. One new chandelier can definitely increase the quality of lighting in a room and make it fancier.
  4. Work on your kitchen cabinets. You can either decide to add more storage in your kitchen by taking advantage of the extra spaces you have between walls or choose to upgrade your current cabinets by replacing the handles and giving them a new coat of paint.
  5. Take your rugs and carpets to professional cleaners. While regular vacuuming just takes care of dirt, dust and pet fur, taking your carpets to professional drycleaners will get rid of long-standing stains, mold, and other allergens, and give your carpets a fresh look on the outside. 
  6. Replace old fittings. Go out on a limb and replace old and worn outdoors and door handles, electrical wall sockets, showerheads, and faucets. You would be surprised at how much better your home will look.
  7. Plant some vegetation in the exterior. An assortment of potted plants and garden-variety vegetation around your walkway won’t cost you a lot but will help to make your home look warm and inviting. Ask your neighborhood horticulturist for suggestions on plants and vegetation that don’t require lots of maintenance.

Ask your real estate agent for the best upgrades to improve the value of your home.
