Sometimes, the list seems endless with all the ideas of home improvement projects you could do.  But what updates make the most sense and don’t break your budget?  Here are some ideas to get started.

Minor Bathroom Remodel—Consider a fresh coat of paint, new hardware, or even new mirrors to spruce up your space. If you want to give it more than a face-lift, you could replace the shower head, counter, sink, and toilet for a few thousand dollars.  Re-glazing your existing tub is another relatively inexpensive option.

New Lighting—How old are your light fixtures? Sometimes it’s as simple as changing your kitchen, hallway, or dining room lighting to freshen up the area with an updated look.

Landscaping—It can be overlooked, but it’s relatively easy to spruce up the outside of your home with new plants, shrubs, and even trees. All of this adds a splash of color and some interesting focal points to enhance the curb appeal.

New Living Room or Family Room Furniture—Start with a new couch and build your room from there. You can slowly add new lamps, chairs, pillows and artwork as you find pieces you love.

Basement Remodel—This could be a larger project depending on what type of space you want to create.  For most, it probably means hiring a professional.  Make sure you receive bids from multiple contractors to find the right match for you, your budget, and your ultimate plans.
