There are so many ways to upgrade your home to improve your overall comfort and quality of living. While many upgrades may seem too expensive, there are many affordable options you can do. Consider improving your home this season with these inexpensive and easily accessible upgrades.
A new showerhead revitalizes your bathing experience while improving the overall look of your bathroom. Showerheads can wear down over time, losing power and efficiency due to mineral buildup and age. You may be stuck dealing with a fixture that has lost the majority of its pressure. A new fixture gives you more control in the bathroom, allowing you to create a spa-like experience every time you bathe.
New showerheads can also lower your monthly water bills. Invest in a model that has a filter or special features that boost comfort and relaxation. Older family members will also have an easier time in the bathroom with a more accessible fixture. Install a new showerhead to bring lasting ease and comfort to your home.
New Light Fixtures
Outdated light fixtures can keep a room permanently gloomy. You may not have enough light in your room or don’t enjoy the design of your fixtures. Consider replacing your old wall or ceiling fixtures with new lights that brighten your rooms and lower your energy consumption.
Try dimmers or timers to give your home more flexibility in its lighting. You’ll no longer have to struggle with rooms turned to the maximum setting during the early morning hours or late at night. Give your family the benefit of lights that can adjust to your needs while lowering your monthly costs.
Under-Cabinet LED Lights
Kitchen counters are often the messiest surfaces in the home. You might have too many appliances and not enough free space to cook or hold your necessities. LED lights are an energy-efficient alternative to lamps that last much longer than traditional light bulbs.
LED lights generate virtually no warmth, negating any possible risk of accidental fire. Easily install these lights under your cabinets with Velcro or Snap-On bases that are easy to remove and switch out when necessary. LED lights are perfect for your counter when you require a little extra light.
Do you have a light fixture that just looks plain? Ceiling fans are inexpensive and easy to install when you already have a fixture in place. These fans are great at conserving energy while assisting your HVAC system. They effortlessly improve air circulation and add new flair to a room. Ceiling fans are often the best choice in bedrooms when you want to maximize your overall comfort.
Any room in your house could host a ceiling fan. Shop around at any local home improvement store to find easy-to-install options requiring minimal electrical knowledge. Ceiling fans can be installed quickly.
Planted Privacy Wall
Your backyard is an extension of your living space. You and your family should feel comfortable enjoying the weather and sunshine without worrying about nosy neighbors. While fences can be a pain to install due to zoning requirements and the materials needed, privacy walls are a simple and inexpensive alternative. If you don’t want to install a fence, you have other options for creating privacy.
Bamboo and evergreens are two popular choices that can give you privacy and seclusion fast. These lively options add decorative value to your backyard. You have all the benefits of a privacy fence without nearly as many costs or complications. With a variety of choices from shrubs to trees, you can make a backyard that uniquely fits your family’s needs.
Fresh Front Door
Have you recently changed your siding or shutters but forgot your front door? Your front door is the first thing that greets visitors and family members. While you may change up your seasonal decorations or repair minor damages when necessary, a new paint job can revitalize your home’s curbside appeal. A striking front door makes a fantastic impression on guests and neighbors.
Your front door has to survive many precipitation and weather extremes. Constant sunlight, rain, and wind can wear your door down and compromise its integrity. A new coat of paint is a great way to keep your door while improving the looks of your home. Quality paint will extend the lifespan of your door so you don’t have to worry about pest or water damage.
Boisterous homes often very quickly run out of storage space. Without enough room, your home will likely deal with cluttered counters, tables, and desks. Mounted shelving space is a great way to utilize your walls in a fun and easy way. You can find pre-made shelving kits or create unique shelves for your household.
Shelving is perfect for bedrooms when you want to keep certain items out of reach of young family members. They can preserve valuable items while elevating the occupant’s taste and style. In practical areas like your bathroom, where space is limited, you can display decorations, books, or plants without crowding your limited counter space.
Many older homes have worn-out carpeted stairs that have been in place for years. These stairs have accumulated hair, debris, and filth that’s impossible to vacuum out or wash away. While carpeting can muffle sounds and protect younger family members, it often takes away from the aesthetic appeal of a room.
A great way to improve the look of your staircase is by removing the carpeting and revealing the beautiful wood beneath. A beautiful, recently polished wood staircase is a perfect addition to any home. However, you also have the option to add a staircase runner that is installed down the middle of your stairs, allowing the visible wood edges to create an exciting contrast. These runners protect your stairs from damage and you can personalize them based on your style.
Give your kitchen some style with a new backsplash. You don’t have to opt for traditional masonry options that are expensive. There is an abundance of DIY alternatives to help you save money. You can opt for metal tile or thermoplastic that sticks to a surface with glue or tape. Many exciting options including mosaic stone and glass designs can be found at low, affordable prices.
You don’t need a complete remodel to enjoy your kitchen. Installing a new backsplash adds style and personality to one of the most active places in your home.
