Budget-friendly Home Upgrades

May 17th, 2016 | Higgins Group Real Estate

Renovations and home upgrades can cost a fortune, but spicing up your home without breaking your bank account is possible. Check out these budget-friendly home upgrades that will make your home feel brand new.

Home Upgrades – Home Renovations

1. Switch boring hardware with new ones.

Doorknobs and other hardware may be small items, but they definitely affect the overall look of a home. New hardware updates the look of your home and gives it a fresh vibe without having to spend too much.

2. Make time for small paint jobs.

Giving your whole home a fresh coat of paint takes a lot of time and money, so let’s focus on small tasks. Consider repainting your front door or kitchen cabinets to update the look of your home. Best of all, it’s inexpensive (you’ll only use about a fraction of a gallon of paint) and you can easily squeeze the DIY project during the weekend.

3. Install sensor lights to your front porch.

When it comes to home improvement, we can’t forget increasing our property’s curb appeal. For a budget-friendly update, install sensor lights, with prices starting at about $15. Not only will it improve your visibility come night time, sensor lights can also lower your electricity bill. Sensor lights also add a security bonus, as miscreants will be discouraged by your motion-detecting lights.

4. Invest in some fresh mulch.

You don’t have to go all out in landscaping to give your yard a new look. Fresh mulch in flower beds will do just the trick. For just about $6, fresh mulch can transform your yard into a clean and pretty outdoor space.

5. Install a magnetic door catch.

If you’re a hands-on homeowner who loves to shop for groceries and more, a magnetic door catch will make all the difference in the world. One magnetic door catch can cost about $11, and can make loading and unloading in your primary entrance much easier. If you’re moving to a new home, installing this might even help come moving day.

These simple and inexpensive upgrades will drastically improve your home’s look and functionality. While you’re at it, we’ve got plenty of do-it-yourself projects that will help you make your home feel like the space you’ve always wanted.
