Home Improvement Ideas On a Budget

Have you ever noticed that it’s the simple things that really make a difference in the way you live in your home? Here are some simple home improvement ideas to add value to your home without spending much money. Most also don’t require any special expertise.

The Kitchen – rather than having cabinets and surfaces replaced, consider just picking up new doors and hardware, and perhaps a can of wood stain or paint.

Light fixtures – Old styles can be made modern in a half hour. Using newer, eco-friendly fixtures can improve a room’s attractiveness while adding cleaner light and lowering your electric bill. Doorknobs, handles, and other hardware throughout the house can be retouched for a better look.

Flooring – While flooring is normally installed by experts, there are kits that are installed over existing floors. Several hundred dollars can be saved by doing the work yourself while getting rid of worn out floors. If your carpet is looking used but you can’t afford new carpeting, rent a shampooer and clean your carpet. This can put new life into it and put off replacement.

Bathrooms – Adding a new toilet seat in the bathroom and a few new towels can give a newer look to you bathroom. Replace chipped tiles around your bathroom and clean the grout to complete the look.

The front door – Adding new hardware, stronger fixtures, a new light kit, or paint to the frame can do wonders for the image of your home.

New curtains – If the colors are off or they are just getting run down looking, hanging a new set will make everyone feel better.
