Considering a few changes to your property but not sure where to start? Regardless of square footage or your renovation budget, home improvements can be fun and inexpensive with a few do-it-yourself ideas in mind. Offered in this blog are three simple ways to update your home in a flash without breaking the bank. Check out the list of low-cost ideas below.
Paint the Cabinets – Small cosmetic changes such as sprucing up your kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanity with a new coat of paint can go a long way. Instead of replacing them, try painting your cabinets with bold or neutral colors. Add a color you feel brings a light, fresh note to your home. Not only will this freshen up your space, but it also saves you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. You might also consider using chalkboard paint on a single cabinet door for a unique way to jot down grocery lists and notes.
Build an Outdoor Walkway – Create a welcoming backyard environment and add visual interest with a path of stones. Whether purchased or found in nature, adding natural elements such as a stone walkway to your landscape is an inexpensive way to make a distinctive statement. There are endless opportunities for what shapes and colors of natural stone you might use. This simple project might even be accomplished over the weekend!
Revamp Outdated Light Fixtures – To save time and money, update old light fixtures that just need a little love. Consider replacing their covers with an oversized lamp shade or DIY frame. This easy, cost-effective lighting makeover will give the room an improved and stylish feel, such as transforming brass fixtures with industrial elements to create a more modern vibe or a twine wrapped lamp shape for a boho or farmhouse feel.
