5 Fab Home Upgrades for Under $100 

Has the wintertime got you feeling blue about the look of your home? Check out these 5 fab home upgrades for under $100 to spice up your space!

1.) Paint Your Door: Painting the front door gives the front of your house a fresh, new look in an afternoon. Materials, including painter’s tape, paint brushes, primer and paint, should run well under $100. Just make sure the color you pick is approved by your HOA if you have one in your community.

2.) Invest in a Pressure Washer: With a pressure washer, you can strip the dust, dirt and grime off your home and pathways from the wear and tear of winter weather. It’s a great way to make your home look new again, especially the windows. Not interested in buying a pressure washer? Consider renting one from your local hardware store.

3.) Update Your Light Fixtures: If the light fixtures that came with your home look like something from the early 90’s era, consider updated them for a fresh look that’s guaranteed to brighten your home. Keep an eye out for less costly pendant lights and lanterns to hang over a kitchen table or spruce up a hallway.

4.) Add a firepit: Whether you want to warm up around the fire and chat with friends or recreate the camp experience by making smores with your family, adding a firepit to your backyard is a great upgrade that will provide a great resource for entertaining. You can make a fire pit in your backyard with simple pavers or bricks or buy a tasteful one from Amazon to compliment your poolside patio. Depending on the style, a firepit can make a really nice focal point for your backyard.

5.) Dress Up Your Furniture: Buying a whole new sofa set will run you well over a $100. But you can always give your old couches new life by pulling a slipcover over it. These days, it’s easy to find an inexpensive and fashionable slipcover. You might even have enough change left over to buy some fun new accent pillows.
