Whether you’re preparing your home to sell or you’re looking for some ways to add comfort and safety to the your family’s haven, there are lots of projects that can be done without breaking the bank.
Here are six great suggestions to get you started on some affordable home improvement.
A fresh coat of paint
It’s amazing how much a fresh coat of paint in a new color can brighten up a room. Having some fun with the wall colors in your house can make it feel like a new space. If you’re planning to sell your home, it’s best not to do anything too wild and crazy, but you can still choose fresh and fun colors. If you order some pizzas and invite some friends to help, the work and the financial burden will be pretty light too!
Add security system
It doesn’t matter how nice your home looks if your family and possessions aren’t protected. We all want to assume bad things won’t happen, but unfortunately, sometimes they do. Being prepared is of utmost importance. In addition to helping your home be more safe, a home security system can help improve the value of your home, according to a Chicago home security system expert from www.vivint.com.
Build a deck
Building a deck adds extra space for a relatively minimal investment–and it doesn’t impact energy costs! If you’re planning to build it yourself instead of hiring someone, make sure you know what you’re doing since the safety of your loved ones depends on the soundness of the structure.
Get rid of mold
Sometimes unseen mold behind the walls or under the floors of your home can be an underlying cause of sickness in your family. Replace rotten wood or old, wet flooring to avoid the growth of mold in your home.
Re-purpose a space
Need a change but don’t have the cash for anything big? Turn a space into something different. An extra guest room can be re-purposed into a study or craft room. Think creatively and use your space effectively.
Add some fresh color
If you are feeling “blah” with your current decor scheme, try adding some splashes of a new color. Some fun throw pillows and a bright, seasonal silk flower arrangement can add a lot to the feel of your room without costing an arm and a leg.
Sometimes it only takes a few small changes to increase the value of your home and make it a better place for your family to enjoy.
