Home renovation shows might have you believe that you need a $100,000 budget and a crew of 50 to make big changes. The good news is that you don't have to gut the entire inside of your home and start over! There are inexpensive ways to completely transform your house into the home you've always wanted.
Clean and Organize
A deep clean and organization might not sound like a big deal, but it can completely change your home. Our friends at Zaarly suggest hiring a company that can work with your family for two or three visits to get things where you want them to be. If you're going to start on your own, go room by room and have three baskets: keep, donate and give away. Clear out the clutter and see how your home opens up!
Paint an Accent Wall
If you aren't ready to commit to an entire room being painted, pick one wall. For living rooms, try the wall behind your main sofa. For bedrooms, the wall behind your bed. For kitchens, the wall behind your stove, and for bathrooms, the side wall or wall behind your sink.
Have the Floors Cleaned
Not ready to tear up the floors to replace them? A professional carpet/floor cleaner can make your floors look (almost) like new!
Enhance Your Curb Appeal
Don't forget the opening act! A good power-washing can make your home look freshly-painted. Mowing your lawn every week will keep your curb looking tidy. Painting the front door a bright color will add a noticeable touch. Having your windows cleaned professionally will have the outside of your home looking sparkling new!
Paint Kitchen Cabinets and Replace Hardware
If you aren't ready to remodel your kitchen, start with the cabinets and replace all of the cabinet hardware. This is a chance for you to go bold and pick the colors and accents you've been dreaming of. This is also a great way to see the direction you want to go, should you ever do a complete kitchen remodel.
It might not be a reality-home-show transformation, but small changes can make you feel like a star in your home!
