Affordable Projects that Add Value to Your Home

Are you looking to increase your home’s value but don’t want to go in the red in order to do it? There are many projects you can do around the home that can increase its value without costing you an arm and a leg.

Here are a few ideas for your next home improvement project that you can accomplish affordably.

Refinish your floors

While lush wall-to-wall carpeting was all the rage in the 70s and 80s, today it’s not the most popular choice. If your home has hardwood floors being covered up by carpeting, consider removing it and refinishing the flooring beneath. It’s a tedious task but can be done fairly cheap if you have a small budget.

Spruce up your kitchen

Kitchen upgrades can be quite pricey, but you can give yours a facelift without putting a huge dent in your wallet. Repainting your cabinets and adding new hardware gives your kitchen a whole new look at a good price. You can also add an interesting backsplash to give your room a touch of personality.

Freshen up your bathroom

Next to the kitchen, your bathroom is one of the most valuable rooms in your home. Breathe new life into the room by upgrading the faucet, re-grouting or retiling your bathroom, replacing an old toilet and refinishing the cabinets.

Don’t forget the outdoors

While it’s important to focus on what’s inside your home, you shouldn’t forget the outside. Something as simple as giving your front door a fresh coat of paint, adding a few statement pieces of shrubbery and laying down mulch around your home takes your landscaping to the next level and gives your home real curb appeal.
