Best Home Improvement Projects That Won’t Break the Bank
Not all home improvement projects need to cost a lot of money or take a lot of time. In fact, there are many different things you can do over the course of a weekend to improve the look, function, and comfort of your home without the project breaking your bank.
In our blog post, we will highlight some of the best home upgrades and affordable home improvement ideas, from the kitchen and bath to the living room and bedroom.
- Paint the Kitchen Cabinets
If you want to improve the look of your kitchen but you don’t want to spend a fortune to upgrade it, then simply painting the cabinets can give the space a change you’ve been looking for. For the best results, make sure you sand and prep the cabinets before painting. While you’re at it, why not swap out your cabinet handles with something more your style?
- Paint the Shower Wall Tiles
If you purchased a home that was built in the 1950s, then your bathroom walls may be tiled with colored tile, such as pink or light green. Unfortunately, ripping out and replacing that tile takes a lot of time, effort, and money. So why not paint them a more neutral color instead? Of course, this is a temporary fix, but it will give you time to save up for a more thorough renovation down the road.
- Go Rustic With a Pallet Wall
If you pay close attention, you’ll find wood shipping pallets being tossed out almost everywhere. The good thing is you can break these pallets down, clean and finish the wood, and install it on a wall in your bedroom or living room to give it a warm and rustic look for far less than it would cost buying wood from your local lumber yard.
- Give Your Ceiling Fan a Makeover
If your ceiling fan has seen better days but it still works just fine, then you can give it a fresh look by disconnecting it, removing it from the ceiling, dismantling the individual parts, and painting them all. For instance, if you have an old brass fan with wood-style blades, then you can paint the brass parts with brushed nickel paint and the blades a darker color, like black or dark gray, to give the fan a more modern look. Just make sure you give the fan a thorough cleaning before you start painting.
- Replace Your Air Return Grilles
Standard air return grilles are bland and boring. By replacing them with grilles that feature more interesting designs, you’ll breathe some new air into your home, figuratively and literally.
