The Best Products for Upgrading on a Dime

By
Real Estate Agent with Angel Lynn Realty
Whether you're looking to sell your home, or you simply want to give it a face lift, upgrades can be financially daunting. In a dismal economy, home owners must get creative. But there are also dozens of products available that won't break the bank and will provide an eye-appealing upgrade. Here's an overview of the latest and greatest ones on the market:

Closet Organizers

If you own an older home, you're likely frustrated by a lack of storage space. Furthermore, small closets and pantries can be a deal breaker to potential buyers. Closet organizers are here to save the day! There are many companies selling these handy upgrades, and most of them offer professional installation. Closetmaid.com offers an array of shelving and organizers and will even let you design your own online.

Laminate Wood Flooring

Most people appreciate wood floors because they lend more space to any room and they can add a richer, cleaner look to your home. However, oak and other traditional wood flooring can be a pretty penny. Luckily, there are cheaper laminate versions that look great, are resilient, and are even a cinch to install. They come in many different colors and styles to mimic the variety of real wood species. For top rated brands click here.

Vinyl Stone Flooring

It looks as pretty as the real thing and for a fraction of the cost. A set of 9 12x12 tiles can be purchased for a mere $14. Plus, they're easy to install! Check out the selection from Home Dynamix and get ready to give your home an entirely new look. http://www.amazon.com/Madison-Vinyl-Stone-Tiles-Set/dp/B000EZXFTE

Faux Granite

Granite countertops are highly sought after because they are a symbol of a modern, clean kitchen. Fortunately, someone has come up with a way to fake the look for thousands less than it would cost to have real granite put in. Home Improvement expert, Danny Lipford recommends Giani Granite Paint for Countertops because it's "DIY friendly, [and] can make almost any surface— from plastic laminate and solid surface countertops to mantels and tabletops— look like granite". One kit costs about $40 and will cover 16 ft of countertop. Watch Danny demonstrate how this brilliant product works... Courtesy of: dannylipford.com bankrate.com allaboutyou.com
