There is always something we wish we could change about our houses. But, we either don’t know where to start or don’t have the money. Well, we’re here to give you 8 home improvement projects that you can complete this weekend for under $150. How does that sound? Pretty great, right?

Are you ready for this?

Try a new color

Give your living room a fresh coat of paint. Change up your kitchen and paint your cabinets a brand new look. Fresh paint always makes a place feel newer and brighter.

Bring your floor new life

Do you have hardwood floors? If so, when was the last time you polished them? Polish will restore their shine and make them look as good as new; if you don’t have a crazy amount of scratches or dings.

Update your exterior

Give your exterior a sophisticated look by framing it with millwork, adding new light fixtures, trimming the shrubs, plants, etc. First impressions are everything, so you want your curb appeal to be beautiful.

Clean out your closet

Get rid of the closet clutter by organizing and getting rid of the things you don’t need. Install shelves, hanging rods and other organization systems to utilize the space better and make it easier to find items.

Have your carpets cleaned

The reality of having carpet in your home is that it gets dirty pretty quickly. Professionally cleaning your carpets will remove set in stains, allergens, dust, etc. Cleaning them yourself is essential, but that only gets rid of the dirt on the surface. This project might not be something you can do this weekend depending on schedules.

Let light in

A beautiful light fixture can change the look of any room. Replace your outdated lights with something new and shiny! You can also get new curtains, or wash your existing ones on your windows for a cleaner feel.

Tidy the front entryway

The first thing people see when they walk into your home is probably the clutter right inside the door. Shoes, backpacks, jackets, etc. Try adding hooks or drawers to keep things out of sight and tidy.

Add more storage

Consider installing shelves or a cubby system into your walls in your common areas. You can display cute decorations and add storage bins into cubbies to keep your belongings out of sight. You can never go wrong with more storage!

Good luck

Whatever you decide to do, it is likely that it will increase your home’s value and leave you falling in love with your home all over again.
