If you’re a home improvement junkie or getting ready to sell your home, some types of improvements can cost thousands. But you don’t have to invest in expensive, large-scale improvements to make a big difference in your home’s appearance. Many effective upgrades can be done for under $100 each.
Here are few things you can do to have your home appear more updated, brighter and less cluttered:
Paint outdated cabinets
White or gray cabinets can increase a home’s value by thousands of dollars. All you need is a free weekend, a brush or two and a couple gallons of paint.
Replace your old kitchen hardware
A matte black or silver handle is an easy way to make your kitchen look less dated. Buying them by the piece can be expensive, but you can save by buying in bulk.
Repaint your front door
The entrance to your home makes a huge impact, not just in terms of first impressions, but the feeling when someone gets approaching your door makes a lasting effect on their perception of your entire home. Refreshing or completely changing the color of the door can be very effective.
Replace dated or worn light fixtures
When you’re selling a property, having light fixtures that match the rest of the home’s decor can really help get potential buyers excited about your property.
Freshen up your landscaping
Adding mulch and solar path lights to exterior walkways or porches is a great way to upgrade curb appeal.
Update your bathroom mirror
Everyone loves a clean, updated bathroom. The mirror is the one thing that is constantly looked at, and updating it can make a big difference. Although sizes are usually influenced by price, most mirrors can be purchased for under $100. If you don’t want to completely replace your mirror, adding a frame to it will instantly give it a lift.
