The Five Quickest and Most Inexpensive Ways to Improve Your Home

The Five Quickest and Most Inexpensive Ways to Improve Your Home
  • Opening Intro -

    Sprucing up a home without crossing the line that separates you from “broke” can be tricky.

    Home renovations, repairs, and modifications can be some of the most expensive purchases you'll make in your life.


However, if you choose wisely, repairing and improving your home doesn’t have to strain your wallet.

Add a Chandelier

If you feel like your dining room or living room is lacking something, don’t settle by purchasing another love seat or end table. Try placing a chandelier in one or both of these rooms to change the lighting and to add a more personalized feel to the home. Not only do chandeliers provide attractive lighting, but they are nice to look at just as they are. A well-picked chandelier will instantly add an aesthetically pleasing, classical and inexpensive touch to any room.

Keep Up with the Lawn

The lawn in front of a home can say a lot about the entire property. A brand new home might be beautiful, but if the lawn and landscaping aren’t taken care of, the exterior will appear shabby and unkempt. Keep the lawn trimmed and weeded, and shape hedges and bushes regularly. If you can, add flower beds and other bright, eye-catching plants outside to increase the curb appeal of your home. To save money, consider planting a lawn that won’t require as much watering, like Bermuda grass.

Replace Appliances

You don’t have to replace all of your kitchen appliances in one go, but you’ll want to gradually upgrade them to recent times to keep the room itself trendy and attractive. A kitchen remodel looks wonderful, but if the appliances aren’t upgraded along with it, the renovation is likely going to hardly be noticed. Purchase newer appliances when your finances permit.

Install a Home Security System

A security system is an inexpensive way to improve and add value to your home, but it goes a much longer way in terms of functionality. A security system these days is almost necessary for a home to be completely safe and many buyers in the coming years are unlikely to take a second look at a home without a security system, as it implies lack of care on the owners’ part. Keeping your greatest investment—your home—safe and secure is one of the best improvements you can make within a tight budget.

Re-carpet One Room

Lastly, if there’s a room in your home with carpet you’re less than thrilled about, consider having it replaced with new carpet. A carpet says a lot about a room and, in some cases, newer carpet can make a room feel more inviting and cozy. Depending on the type you get, you should be able to save quite a bit of money by laying it yourself. Carpet is one of the simplest home improvements to master on your own, so if you have the time and willingness to learn, this can be the most inexpensive improvement on this list!
