DIY Projects That Won’t Break the Bank

You don’t need to tap into your life savings or spend the kids’ college fund to increase the appeal of your home. If you’re considering selling your home or just want to increase the enjoyment of your investment, there are several projects you can do yourself that are relatively inexpensive and are a great return-on-investment. Your local home improvement store offers free advice if you have questions.

Here are just a few suggestions.

In Your Kitchen:

  • Add or update the hardware on cabinets and drawers.  Shop your local hardware and home improvement stores  and stick with styles that have wide appeal.
  • Install a tile backsplash or paint it with an accent color. This is one of the quickest and easiest ways to update your kitchen.
  • Show off the inside of your glass door cabinets by painting the back inside wall with an accent color.
  • Shed some light on your meal prep with battery-powered LED undercabinet puck lighting.
  • Update an old fridge with a faux stainless-steel painted finish.
  • Make your cabinets feel like royalty with crown molding at the top.

In Your Bathroom:

  • Remove dated fixtures and swap out lighting fixtures, faucets and handles.
  • Lean a painted wood ladder against a bathroom wall to use as a towel rack and increase the space.

In Your Interior:

  • Paint your interior walls with neutral colors that give the room the appearance of being larger. Start with the most visible areas of your home first and then expand your project till your entire home is painted.
  • Update generic white globe ceiling mounted light covers.
  • Install ceiling fans and save on your energy bill.
  • Clear clutter on shelves and counters with inexpensive organization systems.
