3 Home Upgrades (That Won’t Break The Bank!)

Let’s face it, home upgrades are exciting and fun. . . but definitely expensive (especially if we’re not conscious and careful). From the simple tweaks to the full on renovations, making our homes look and feel different is something that we’re all interested in—at least at some point in our homeownership journey.

If you’re looking to upgrade your home on a budget, here are a few ways to change and reshape your space (without breaking the bank).

1. Start With Kitchen Shifts

If you’re clueless on where to start with your home upgrades, think about the kitchen! Your kitchen is an important part of your home, and it will be one of the places you spend the most amount of time in. Plus, if you decide to sell in the future, a fantastic kitchen will help this go a lot easier.

If you want to make your kitchen look and feel nicer, you can start with something on the smaller side, like updating the décor, changing cupboard handles/knobs, or painting cabinet fronts. Albeit simple changes, these updates can add a layer of sophistication to the space. 

2. Improve/Redo Your Siding

Another cheap home upgrade has to do with the side of your house! If the exterior of your home currently looks old, worn down, or anything less than amazing, then you should think about looking into a house siding installation service.

You can opt for several different kinds of siding, with vinyl being the cheapest. Or, if you’re looking for wood, plywood is on the less expensive side, too. While you can DIY your siding, but it may be helpful to hire an expert to help, too.

3. Update Your Garden/Yard Space

If you’re lucky enough to have a yard or garden space, then this is a must! A simple (and relatively cheap) DIY upgrade is to make your yard more usable. This might mean something as simple as adding fixtures, furniture, or statement decor. Or, it could be as complex as creatin a patio, depending on how adventurous you’re feeling!

However, if you want to go even cheaper than this, you can simply buy some flowers/succulents and plant them around. Even the smallest changes can make the biggest difference when it comes to usability, comfort, and care.
