5 Budget-Friendly Home Improvement Ideas

Do you remember the last time you gave your home an upgrade? Everyone has to update their home every once in a while, but who wants to spend the money? The good news is, you don’t have to spend a lot of cash to make a big difference in the look and style of your house. If you want to make some changes — but aren’t crazy about the idea of paying for it — here are a few helpful home improvement ideas that won’t break the bank.

1. Replace the Hardware for Home Improvement Made Easy

The hardware in your house — the door handles, cabinet knobs, and drawer pulls — seem like small things, but replacing them can have a big impact on your home. Replacing them with new, attractive pieces will better match your current tastes while giving your whole home a more contemporary look.

2. Update the Lighting

Changing lighting fixtures is just the kind of home improvement project that might seem like a big (expensive) deal, but really isn’t. New lamps or overhead lighting can brighten up a home, but so can something as simple as installing track lighting under kitchen or bathroom cabinets.

3. Adding an Outdoor Walkway

Every homeowner expects different things from their yards. Some might have a pool or a fire pit, while others prefer a lush garden. Everyone, however, can benefit from a stone pathway. Taking a few hours out of a weekend to install stone pavers along busy front or backyard routes is a cost-effective way to add a little sophistication to your landscaping.

4. Create a Foyer

You don’t have to build an addition onto your home to create what is essentially a foyer.  For a very small amount of money, you can design a space by your front entrance that will encourage guests to leave a hat or coat by simply adding a bench, hooks, and some shelves.

5. Upgrade the Thermostat

Guests might not notice a new thermostat, but you certainly will. By updating your old thermostat with one that’s programmable, you can save a lot of money on your monthly energy bill. Now that’s a cost-effective means of home improvement.
