Budget Friendly Home Upgrades

Whether you are planning on putting your home on the market, or just want a fresh home face-lift that won’t break the bank, this list of budget friendly home upgrades will refresh your home and wow guests and home buyers alike.

Entry Enhancements

There are a number of ways to spruce up your front door and porch area. You can paint the door a new color, or just give it a fresh coat. You can also touch up the exterior trim, update outdoor lighting fixtures, and swap out decorations to fit the season for inexpensive ways to give a great first impression of your home.

Polish up the Powder Room

Regrouting and recaulking are simple DIY projects that really help give your bathrooms a nice clean and polished feel. Also consider changing out older and less efficient toilets, faucets, and shower heads for a fresh look that also saves money in the long run.

Flooring Fixes

Nothing dates a home quite like worn, dirty carpet. Check under carpets to see if there are original wood floors you can just have refinished. Consider durable, yet affordable, laminate and engineered wood floors as a replacement to areas that receive a lot of traffic and wear-n-tear. Also, tile, porcelain, and stone are affordable flooring materials that look great in kitchen and bathrooms.

Cabinet Care

Rather than spend thousands on cabinet replacement, just clean, sand, and paint existing ones. Consider adding new hardware for a complete mini-remodel.

Architectural Accents

Add small quality details that pack a big punch such as: wainscoting, shiplap, and crown molding. Choose smaller rooms like guest bathrooms, dens, or dining rooms and give them a little wow factor.

Liven Things up with Lighting

Replacing outdated lighting fixtures is an inexpensive way to really give your home a remodeled feel. With so many styles out there, it is a simple way to add personality and flare to your space.

The Power of Paint

Adding a fresh coat of paint to rooms is one of the easiest, most affordable, and impactful ways to give your home an updated and clean feel. Consider nice, neutral colors if you are planning on putting your home on the market. Yet, if you are staying in your home, and just want a new look, paint is a great way to liven things up and express yourself.
