Many of us want to upgrade our homes but out unable to do so because of the strain it would put on our personal finances…or at least so we think.
The reality is that there are actually a multitude of ways that you can upgrade your home right now without breaking your wallet, and we’ll explore a small handful of those ways in this article.
Here are five ways you can upgrade your home on a budget:
- Change Your Entry Door
The entry door is the first thing that you or anyone sees when they walk up to your home. Your entry door also represents one of the cheapest fixes you can make to your home as well. While you can fully replace your door on your own if you want to, a cheaper option would likely be to simply repaint it if the existing paint is starting to chip or wear off.
- Make Your Bedroom More Cozy
The master bedroom needs to be the coziest and most relaxing room in the whole house, so if it’s not currently that way for you, that’s something you’ll want to fix right away. While buying higher quality furniture pieces may be out of your budget range, other things you could do be to place a coffee table and bookshelf or swap out the colors to ones that you personally find to be more soothing.
- Install Crown Molding On Your Own
It’s fully possible to install crown molding, also known as cornice, on your own for less than one hundred dollars. Crown molding is the molding that travels around a room’s wall underneath the ceiling, and it adds much value to the room.
- Install A Water Filter In Your Kitchen Sink
If you are concerned about the quality of your tap water, it may certainly sound appealing to instead purchase bottled water to drink instead. But a cheaper and more convenient option than that will be to simply install a water filter in your kitchen sink, which can be done for around a hundred bucks or less.
- Remodel Your Outside Deck
If your deck has become worn down and neglected, remodeling it can certainly seem like an expensive undertaking. But the truth is remodeling your deck doesn’t have to be as expensive as you may think it is. For instance, you can manually hand scrub the deck or you can power wash it to get rid of all the grime that it has accumulated over the years too. At that point, all you have to do is brush on a new coat of paint or stain to make it look like new.
Improving Your Home
As you can see, upgrading your home is not something that has to cost a lot of money. But don’t feel that you have to be limited to the upgrades that we have covered in this article. There are a lot more cheap home upgrades out there as well.
