Just moved in, ready to move or just want to spruce things up? Especially with the weather so cold out, this is a great time for a home improvement project! And you don’t need a ton of money to make a big impact. Here are our favorite updates, all super affordable!
- PAINT, PAINT, PAINT: Paint can have a huge impact with a really small price tag. Whether you go for neutral or bold, pick something you will love for years to come. If you need some inspiration check out Pantone’s 2017 color picks: http://www.pantone.com/color-of-the-year-2017
LIGHTING: A beautiful chandelier, new pendants or matching lamps can set the stage for an entire room. With tons of affordable choices, it is easy to update your lighting without a big budget. And switching out a light fixture is pretty simple if you follow the instructions. And turn off the power at the breaker!
- KITCHEN UPDATES: A kitchen remodel is a huge task, both time and money wise, but there are ways to give your kitchen a refresh without a giant project. A new faucet and new kitchen hardware can have a big impact, and can be done in just a few hours. If you want a full weekend project, paint the cabinets too and you will have a big Wow factor.
- FRONT DOOR: Every visitor (or potential buyer) will come thru the front door, so make it a showstopper. Pick a bold color to make a major impression and add a new door knob and knocker to give it real character. Painting the inside of the door is another instant upgrade! Your front door is the gateway into your home, make it your own.
Whatever is on your home improvement list for 2017, have fun with it and make it your own. Happy painting!
