Cheap home improvements are a very popular topic among homeowners and even those that rent. As a renter myself, I’ve found that a few of the landlords that I’ve encountered aren’t always to quick to help you fix the rental home or apartment you’re renting from them, leaving you with the fixing work. That being the case, I’ve found some cheap ways to improve my home.
Often, you may find cabinet companies that are willing to sell you just the door fronts of the cabinet, rather than buying an entirely new cabinet set. However, if you have a difficult time finding those places, consider a paint makeover for your cabinets. Sometimes a fresh new paint job with an appropriate color can be all you need to renew and revive your cabinets to create an entire new look in your kitchen.
Cheap Bathroom Improvements
You really don’t need a lot of cash to improve your bathroom, if you implement some simple updated pieces. For instance, a newly painted bathroom or perhaps some newly hung wallpaper with an eye catching design can do a lot to make your bathroom look like new. Then add some accessories to your new bathroom color with things like a new toilet seat and pedestal sink. Consider replacing the floor cheaply with some vinyl tiles or sheet vinyl that you can apply right over your existing floor.
How about a new tub surround with a new shower curtain to go with it? Often on sale, these create a striking new look for your bathroom without a lot of expense.
I’ve found that I can have a lot of fun shopping in a discounted home improvement store for wallpaper that’s either on sale or discontinued. I have been able to get some great deals on a variety of wallpaper styles that generate an entire new feel to a room. I’ve found that kids rooms are especially fun in this regard because there seems to be a lot of wallpaper to choose from for those rooms.
I’ve been able to stick to my frugal side by finding some decent looking shrubs or bushes for my front yard that help to create an inviting and pleasant look to my front yard. As a former homeowner, I found a lot of variety in this regard and was able to produce a whole new feel to my house from the front view that I received a lot of compliments on.
A well maintained mowed lawn is always an inexpensive way to keep things looking fresh and kept around your home as well.
