If you own a home, it is likely that you have looked into remodeling but the cost of it just makes you sick! A major living room, bathroom or kitchen remodel can be around $60,000. Not many people have that kind of money laying around. However, there are small improvements that you can make that can help transform your place and add some value to your home. Here are a few of the tips and tricks below:
Crown Molding: At around $3 a foot, crown molding is an inexpensive feature that adds a dramatic impact and helps draw your eye up making the ceiling look higher, also making it look clean.
Front Door: Adding a pop of color to your front door can really make the house stand out and it really adds a “cute-factor”. A small can of paint is all you really need, which ends up being around $20.
Modern Light: Upgrading older light fixtures can really make your home look modern and add a nice clean look. You can find some nice fixtures for a good deal.
Switch Plate Upgrade: You can find decorative plate covers for pretty cheap in stores. However, if you can’t find one you really like, you can decorate your own with a fabric or wallpaper that you love. This adds a nice look rather then plain white or brass.
Kitchen Faucet: Adding a nice metal or upgraded faucet can really make the kitchen look updated. Paying for a new faucet is also way less expensive then paying for new counters or cabinets.
Cabinet Hardware: Updating knobs on your cabinets can also make your home look updated. Brass was all the rage years ago, but now it just dates the home. Putting some new ones on will really make the home look nice.
Simple changes can really make a difference if you do not have a large budget for it.
