If you live in Rochester MN and your house sorely needs a makeover, but remodeling is beyond your reach you might want to try these four simple fixes:
Touch-up the exteriors of the home. Repainting the trim, columns, garage door and front door of your house can significantly boost its curb appeal. This kind of retouching work is easy on the budget and can be done in just a couple of hours. Just be sure to check the weather forecast before starting a job like this ... a rainy or really humid day may cause the paint to run.
Replace your floors. The widespread availability of affordable "floating floors" (flooring options that can be installed on top of existing boards or linoleum) makes updating the floors in your rec room or pantry a cinch. You might also try visting all of the different flooring centers to see what they have in their overstock section. With a little bit of foot work you might uncover some reasonably priced jems.
Update your hardware. Switching out old light fixtures and faucets is a simple, affordable way to modernize your home. While you're at it, equip your house with fixtures that support halogen light bulbs to save money on your electricity bill. You can also switch out the pulls and handles on your kitchen cabinets. It's amazing to see how swithcing out the handles in a kitchen can make go from a country feel to a more modern look.
Transform your yard. Landscaping doesn't have to break the bank. Replacing overgrown shrubs and bushes and adding some flowers for color is an economical way to add value to your home. Many home repairs can be easily mastered by determined do-it-yourselfers, but there are still some things best left to the experts. If you need to re-floor your entire house, contact a flooring service, and call in the electricians whenever you're dealing with circuit boards or wiring in the walls.
