  • Opening Intro -

    At some point as a homeowner, you will have to commit to making some improvements to your house.

    However, these renovations don't have to cost you an arm and a leg.


They also don’t necessarily have to be fixes that drag on for weeks before you see improvements. There are plenty of easy and cheap fixes that can really change the look and function of your home quickly and painlessly.

Front Door

Another door related improvement is to repaint and change the hardware on your front door. The front door is your home’s first impression. Changing the color to something bright and cheery or at least clean and new, can drastically alter the impression that visitors will get when they arrive. Changing or painting the lock and other hardware can also add to the improved appearance. These improvements are usually more budget friendly than replacing the whole door unless it is in poor shape.

Home Hardware and Fixtures

If you are living in a home with outdated fixtures or hardware, replacing each and every piece may seem like a big undertaking. If it isn’t in your budget to replace every doorknob, consider painting them. There are metallic spray paints that can change the appearance of your home with a simple coat. This is also a great way to change the look of light fixtures.


Any area of the home can be improved with a fresh coat of paint. This is one of the most budget friendly changes you can make. It also makes your home feel more personalized as you can choose to work with your current décor.

Peel and Stick Floors

Some people have issues with the idea of using peel and stick vinyl floors, but the results can be fantastic. The process is fairly easy and definitely less expressive than tearing out old flooring and replacing it with hardwood. Vinyl is known for its water resistance and durability.

Replacing Old Doors and Windows

One of the best renovations you can do is to replace old worn-out doors and windows that no longer seal properly. This is an improvement that not only upgrades the look of your home, but also improves the function. New Northern Comfort windows and doors help your furnace work efficiently and can save you money by conserving energy. A drafty house is uncomfortable and is literally draining energy.

Area Rugs

Home improvements and renovations can be frustrating and expensive. However, if you stick to a budget and plan accordingly, you can make the most of your time and money with quick and easy fixes.
