Home upgrades are something that never seem to be done. No matter how new or old your house may be, there is a never-ending list of things that you could tackle if the budget and time allowed. It’s just part of being a homeowner. Of course, learning how to prioritize which upgrades should come first, and which would give you the most bang for your buck can help to guarantee your satisfaction in the project itself.
Here we’ll take a look at four simple and budget-friendly home upgrades that you can get started on right now. These provide you with maximum results for the minimum amount of money.
Give the House a Fresh Coat of Paint
When it comes to getting maximum impact from a home upgrade, it’s hard to beat what a can of paint
can achieve. It is truly shocking how different a room will look with a fresh coat of paint in a different color. The flow, furniture, space, and size will all appear different and create a modern vibe that you may have been lacking before.
With painting, you can choose to do one room at a time, as the budget allows, or tackle the full house at once and get it all done and over with.
Upgrade Your Room with a New Mattress
For those who take forever to fall asleep each night, toss and turn all evening long, and wake up feeling sore, tight, and, still tired, it’s time to invest in a new mattress. This is one upgrade that you will be very thankful you pursued, as you’ll get immediate results that spill into all aspects of your life. When you sleep better and longer, you are happier, more alert, energized, able to be more productive in life, and just have a clearer outlook.
Of course, choosing the perfect mattress can be quite the undertaking thanks to the wide variety available to consumers. One option is an adjustable bed which makes being in the zero gravity position
possible. Zero gravity is a neutral body posture and is the same posture and position that astronauts are in when they launch. It is meant to alleviate all that pressure they would feel in their spine otherwise.
So, if you take that theory of alleviating pressure in the spine and apply it to a zero-gravity mattress, it is one that raises your head and legs to the proper angle that will increase circulation and alleviate the pain in your spine and back. It could be the answer to your aches and pains.
Add Sophistication with Crown Molding
If you're looking for a way to ramp up the sophistication and elegance in a room, adding crown molding can do the trick. While this is certainly a job you can do on your own, be aware there is lots of detail work with the measurements, cuts, angles, and then filling the gaps with wood filler. The end result will be spectacular though.
Add Fresh Caulk to the Bathrooms
Here's another DIY job that may not seem like it will give shocking results, but it can take a drab and dirty looking bathroom and turn it into something fresh and modern looking.
Changing out the bathroom tile in the bath and shower can be very expensive and labor-intensive, and sometimes unnecessary. It may just be that it needs a fresh coating of crisp white caulk
. Just be sure to remove all the old caulk before applying the fresh layer.
Get Great Results
No matter which of these simple and budget-friendly home upgrades you choose to tackle, one thing is for sure and that’s the fact you’ll get incredible results.
