  1. A Fresh Coat of Interior Paint

One of the quickest, easiest, and most affordable home improvements is a fresh coat of interior paint throughout. Try light breezy colors like beige or gray in small rooms. These reflect light and help make the space look open and airy.

Feeling bored? Try a splash of color with a bright accent wall.

Is your current paint neutral and still looks good? An accent wall is a super easy and affordable way to brighten your space.

  1. Hardwood Flooring

Hardwood flooring is expensive if you opt to do the entire house but one room is affordable and adds a big “wow” factor. Try maple hardwood flooring in the living room.

Add a pop of color with an accent rug in front of the couch, and you’ve got a whole new room. Don’t forget to add some throw pillows in complementary colors!

  1. Create a Feature Wall

Covid has made everyone a little stir crazy and anxious to find new ways of bringing joy into the home. Consider making a statement with a feature wall in the master bedroom or living room.

Try shiplap for a nautical or rustic feature wall. Want something artsier? Use a pretty printed wallpaper or do a gallery wall with art to your tastes.

  1. Update the Kitchen Cabinets

Kitchen cabinets are often expensive but you can make big improvements without breaking the bank. Instead of buying brand-new cabinets, why not do a kitchen cabinet makeover instead?

Start by painting the current cabinets a new color. Do you have dark cabinets that suck all the light out of the room? Opt for a lighter, brighter color such as white.

You can modernize the cabinets by replacing a couple of cabinet doors with glass-paned doors. Change out the old drawer and door pulls for new ones.

Is retro your thing? Look for vintage pulls at garage sales or flea markets.

It’s amazing how much new paint and drawer pulls can change the look of your kitchen.

  1. Put Out the Welcome Mat

Sometimes the best DIY home makeover on a budget is the simplest. Make your house more welcoming with a front door and porch refresh.

Clean and paint the front door a bright welcoming color. Clean up the front porch and add some potted plants and comfortable outdoor furniture. Make your porch welcoming and friendly.

Don’t forget a new welcome mat!
