Low Cost Fall Home Improvements with a Big Return
As the weather begins to cool this fall, it is the perfect time to make home improvements – but before your run to the nearest Home Depot or Lowes, here are a few low-cost fall home improvements with a big return:
A new coat of paint: fresh paint is one of the easiest and most affordable home improvements to make. And if you choose a color that meets the current trends, you can create an up-to-date look and feel in any room of your home. A gallon of paint costs on average $25.00 and it is a weekend task just about any homeowner can handle on their own.
Update your fixtures: nothing shows the age of a home like old fixtures – including lighting, door handles and faucets. However, this fall home improvement project can add up if you decide to tackle every room in your house. Instead consider making changes in stages, such as one room at a time, or one upgrade at a time (like starting with door handles). Then move on to the next room or the next item to update. This fall home improvement project might not seem like a big deal, but the value is in the small details!
Upgrade your front door: they say first impressions are lasting impressions and the front of your home is no exception. For a quick and affordable way to improve your home’s curb appeal this fall, consider replacing your old front door with a new door that adds character and charm to your exterior.
Install cabinets in your laundry room: let’s face it, the laundry room is not the prettiest room in the house, but you can improve the look and function of your laundry room with the installation of a few cabinets.
Give your bathroom a makeover: many homeowners are overwhelmed by the cost of fall home improvements, but a new toilet and sink after installation is less than $1,000.00 – so for the same cost as a new smart phone, you could give your bathroom a makeover!
Do an energy audit: did you know that most utility companies will provide a free energy audit of your home? Why not take advantage of this service to find out where you are spending unnecessary money on energy costs, especially as the weather begins to cool off this fall.
