Home Improvement Ideas That Won’t Break the Bank

Check out this list of simple, budget-friendly home renovation projects that almost any homeowner can tackle.

Walls and ceilings

Give your walls and ceilings a quick update that will have a major impact. Fresh paint or interesting wallpaper can add personality to your room with very little cost or effort.

Don’t forget the ceilings! A simple DIY project for your home is to focus on the old popcorn ceilings by scraping down and repainting with a flat paint in a neutral color for a more modern feel. Give your home depth and interest by adding wood beams or wood cladding to your ceilings for a cozy cottage feel.

Easy updates in the kitchen

Kitchens are the workhorse of any home. Cabinets can quickly look dingy and worn from everyday use. If your cabinets are in good shape but just need a refresh, consider paint or stain to give them that new look again. If your cabinet doors are damaged, re-facing them is an affordable alternative to replacing them. Love your cabinets but wished they looked more modern? Swap out cabinet door handles for a quick and easy update!

Another affordable home renovation project in the kitchen is replacing or adding a backsplash. Although it is a little more complicated of a project and you may need to rent tile cutting tools, the finished result may be just the impact you were hoping for in the kitchen.

Finally, upgrading the faucets in your kitchen and bath can completely change the look of the room. Keep in mind that you may need to hire a plumber in Boston to help with this project and while that will cost a bit more, it’s better than having leaky faucets and dealing with water damage later on.

Make a statement with paint

By now you understand that fresh paint on your walls and ceilings is an easy home renovation project you can tackle without help from a professional. How about other areas in your home that could benefit from a coat of paint?

Consider painting a brick fireplace bright white to lighten and modernize the room. Give an old table or bureau a bold color that makes a statement in your home. Take the paint outdoors and up your curb appeal by painting your front door or shutters.
