Homeowners looking to add value to their home with simple DIY projects can find a wealth of great ideas online. From room additions and roof construction using recycled materials to simple flooring and wall color changes, there are countless ways to increase the value of your home on a limited budget. Regardless of the magnitude of the renovation you’re considering, making sure it’s done right should be your chief concern. Choosing the right materials, planning your project meticulously and executing it to completion may be a little more labor than the typical homeowner expected, especially for novice renovators, but with the right planning, tools, and dedication, anything is possible.
Landscaping is an easy way for a homeowner to develop some meritorious curb appeal. Consider using recycled concrete (or urbanite if you will) to create a path from your drive to your entryway. You can also create in-ground planters for seasonal bulbs, shrubs, or native plants.
An easy way to give your home a total facelift is by updating its exterior color. Check out what works for similar homes in the neighborhood and create a dynamic color palette that will complement the neighborhood and honor your personal style.
Invest in flooring. A carpet will need to be replaced several times over the lifetime of a house, but hardwood, concrete, and tile are forever. Consider what flooring options work best for your space and your budget and choose wisely.
