Renovating your homeis an ideal way to bring it up to date or make it a more functional and exciting space for your family. However, if you're like many homeowners you can't spend an arm and a leg to update a perfectly good house. That doesn't mean there aren't updates that are right for you. There are many different small additions that can make a big impact in your home.
Consider replacing small items like your hardware in the kitchen. Replacing a faucet or hardware on your kitchen cabinets can dramatically alter your space for well under $1,000.
Try dramatic patterned wallpaper in your home instead of paint. Putting wallpaper up can change the way a room looks quickly and it's relatively easy to care for.
Replace doors or windows on the outside of and inside your home. New doors and windows can make your space feel much fresher. They'll also help you define your new style and save money on your energy bills, because new models are more efficient than the ones you already have.
