As  we strive to help you make smarter financial decisions. 

Whether it’s to improve your property’s value or just enhance your living experience, homeowners are increasingly looking to touch up the spaces they are utilizing every day. DIY home renovations can be an economic way to transform your space, but they can easily become expensive if you are not careful. 

With a bit of knowledge and planning, there are countless ways to give your home a face-lift that doesn't cost you a fortune. Here are some of the simple ideas that help you transform your home.

Repaint the Front Door
Repainting the front door and updating the accents around it are simple, cheap renovations that can drastically change your home’s appearance.

Removable Wallpapers
Painting can be a tedious and expensive option if you are to repaint  the entire interior of your house. If you want an easier refresher for tired-looking rooms, consider removable wallpaper, which you peel and stick onto surfaces. Wallpapers come in a variety of colors, patterns and textures, any of which can cover up a bland paint job and instantly transform any space in your home.

Repaint Cabinets
You can completely update the look of your kitchen, bedrooms or bathrooms by repainting the cabinets, especially if they are old. While it will require time to repaint them, the costs are fairly low compared to replacing the cabinets entirely.

Add Flowers
Adding a few colorful flowers to the garden is a great way to create curb appeal. As an alternative low-maintenance way to freshen up your front yard, try a couple of potted, flowering plants or window boxes with seasonal and overflowing blooms. They add color and provide a great view from the outside and inside.

New Curtains
New curtains can transform a room’s look and feel. Curtains, specifically, are easy to find on a budget and they are simple to install quickly..

Invest in home improvements that have long-term value. Ideally, any home remodel you do should increase the value of your property.

Incorporate materials you already have. One of the most effective ways to save money on DIY home improvement is to use upcycled or recycled materials.
