3 Easy Ways to Update Your Home on a Budget

It’s a new year, and if you’re looking to shake things up for a fresh look in and around your home there’s no better time to do it than now. You don’t have to spend a lot of cash. Consider these three simple ways to update your house on a budget.

It’s the Little Things

There are lots of small changes that can spruce up the inside of your home—houseplants are one of them. Some strategically-placed greenery in areas like the entryway or in kitchen windows can make your home feel lively and inviting, and catch the attention of visitors. And don’t forget the front porch. A punch of color never fails.  

Take things a step further and paint walls in your home in light and airy hues, which will help project sunlight throughout your rooms.

Get a Grip

An easy way to spice things up in the kitchen is to swap out old cabinet knobs and pulls for new ones. If you’ve got an island or a peninsula you can add pendant lighting in the same finish as your new hardware for an updated and cohesive look.

An Exterior Nip/Tuck

While you’re freshening-up paint on the inside of your home consider giving the outside a bit of a facelift, too. You don’t have to paint the entire exterior of your house—that can get pretty costly. Instead, focus your attention on accenting portions of the exterior that will most enhance the look of your residence and have the greatest impact on its curb appeal.

Think about areas like your garage door, porch railing, fencing, and even your backyard shed. If your garage door is painted in a light color consider changing it to a darker pigment, which can give your home a more modern appearance. Make sure any exterior colors you choose are complementary. To complete the exterior refresh consider updating your porch light.
