Upgrading your home to what you want it to be is one of those things that’s on almost everyone’s to-do list. A lot of the time, money is what keeps us from doing those upgrades. Here are some budget-friendly home upgrades that you can yourself.
Update Your Front Porch
When people come to your house, the front porch is the first thing they see, so it makes sense to fix it up. Choose a new paint color for your door, add some flower pots or a flower cart, and get a new welcome mat. If you have space, you can add some wicker chairs. You could also put up some chalkboard signs and lanterns. There are so many possibilities to spruce up your front porch.
Change Your Door Handles
If you have outdated door knobs and handles, consider getting new ones or spray painting them. Bronze is a popular color right now and goes with the rustic look. Copper is also becoming very popular. If you want to be safe, go with brushed nickel or chrome.
Add a Beadboard Backsplash
If adding a tile backsplash to your kitchen is out of your comfort zone, consider a beadboard backsplash. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns and most amateur DIYer’s can accomplish this project in a weekend. The beadboard backsplash adds a farmhouse feel to your kitchen.
Add a Coat of Paint
Repainting a room can give it a drastically needed upgrade. You can make the room unique and tailored to your style by choosing the color or even a patterned accent wall. A gallon of paint is usually around $30, so it’s not an expensive project.
Update the Lighting Fixtures
Outdated light fixtures can really make your home look old, either from the style or by not providing enough light. There are energy efficient lighting fixtures that can help you save on energy bills. There are so many unique styles to choose from as well. You can change out the lighting fixtures in your living room, kitchen, and office to get an update throughout the entire house.
Change Out the Hardware and Fixtures
Changing your kitchen and bathroom cabinet hardware can completely transform the room. If you are planning on painting your cabinets, be sure to choose a hardware that will go with the new color. You can also change your sink fixtures in the kitchen and bathroom to go with your new hardware.
