Updating Your Home on a Budget

Creating your dream home can increase its value. There are plenty of DIY projects you can complete without breaking the bank. Check out these home improvement ideas.


A new layer of paint can cover a multitude of mistakes. Old, worn kitchen cabinets? Paint them for a new, clean look. Add a splash of color to bedroom walls with a neutral shade. A accent wall can give you a sleek modern look.

Update Hardware

Updating interior door hardware is a simple and super-fast fix for anyone to do. It can add so much character and an elevated look to any home!

New Outlet and Light-Switch Plates

Upgrading your outlet covers only takes five minutes and can instantly upgrade your home. Outlets are in every room and on nearly every wall in the home. They can have a big impact on the look and functionality of the space.

Easy Lighting Updates

You’ve heard it time and time again: The kitchen is the heart of the home. Certainly, most of us spend a great deal of time cooking, and gathering in the kitchen, so it makes sense to start here. By swapping dim, uninspiring ceiling lights for a statement-making-yet-practical chandelier or grouping of pendant lights. Chandeliers generally work best in the dining room where mood lighting is more important, whereas pendant lights really shine over a kitchen island where they help define the space and provide brighter task lighting.

Change Window Treatments

New fabric, new shades, or a combination of the two is a home renovation idea that can give a pretty facelift to a living room. Plenty of sew-it-yourself options can go a long way to hide older windows (which would be a pricey renovation project). Aim to reuse the existing curtain rods and rings to save a little extra money..


The right size area rug can instantly bring a room together, ground furniture and complete the overall look and feel of a room.  Not to mention, it’s a fantastic way to add color and texture.
