Whether you are getting your home ready to sell or just want a fresh new look, the following do-it-yourself projects will make a big difference without breaking the bank.
1. Spruce up the kitchen
Replacing appliances, cabinetry and countertops is expensive but you can update your kitchen without these costly changes. Update your kitchen by changing out hardware, painting or staining cabinet doors and drawer fronts, replacing outdated light fixtures, or installing a new backsplash.
2. Update the bathrooms
The same is true for your bathrooms. Inexpensive changes can have a big impact. Instead of replacing cabinets, paint the door fronts. Instead of replacing the toilet, replace the toilet seat. Deep clean your flooring and bleach or re-grout the tile if needed. Add a fresh coat of paint and replace old worn out towels with pretty new ones.
3. Paint the walls
A $50 gallon of paint goes a long way when updating your home. Well-loved homes take a beating from kids and pets. Covering up scrapes and scratch marks on walls and woodwork will make your room feel brand new. Add an accent wall for a totally new look.
A well-organized home does wonders not only for the esthetics of your home but also your mental attitude. Consider having a yard sale for unwanted items or donating them to the charity of your choice. If you haven’t used it in a year, it’s probably time to get rid of it.
5. Let the light shine
Let the light shine in by cleaning light fixtures and windows. Glass globes and windows should sparkle inside and out letting the sun shine in.
6. Freshen the floors
Renting a carpet cleaner from your local grocery store is a cost effective way to freshen up carpeting. And applying scratch remover to wood floors will make them look new again.
Most of the above improvements can be done in a weekend and don’t require a professional to get the job done. Simply put on your DIY hat to give your home a fresh new look.
