Here are some great ideas for 5 quick & easy home improvements – which can all be done for under $1000!

1. New Paint, New Look
If you house still has its original features, that is great! The only problem with original is that it can get boring fast. If you have old white walls that don't do anything for the room they are in, then change them. A quick coat of lovely paint in your favourite shade and your house will feel brand new! Paint is both impactful and affordable. If you can't repaint all the walls in your house at once, then select your top 3 areas that could use refreshing and work from there. Doing DIY work around the house is so rewarding – before you know it your whole house will be repainted!

2. Add Texture with Shiplap
DIY Shiplap is an inexpensive way to add warmth and texture to your room. Your home office will be so welcoming with a few well-placed boards. You do not have to buy them pre-cut, if you have some time and you would like to save some money then buy larger pieces and have them cut into 6-inch strips (or whatever size you choose). After a quick coat of paint and fixing them to your walls, you will have a space that feels brand new.

3. Enhance Your Favourite Outdoor Area
There is nothing better than spending time outdoors with your family and close friends. Redo your patio area with gorgeously green plants in stunning planters, add a wall fountain for a boost of peace and serenity, or invest in a trendy wall fireplace. Soothing Company has everything you could ever want to jazz up your patio area.

4. Go Digital
Installing a tech-savvy programmable thermometer will not only save you the hassle of adjusting your thermostat manually 10 times a day, but it will also save you money over time. You can get these installed by your HVAC installer but you can also purchase one and install it yourself with relative ease. It will be well worth it – studies show that these can save you around $250 a year!

5. Revamp Your Cabinets
Kitchen cabinet trends change every year, there is no reason why yours cannot change with them. If your cabinets are still in good condition and are structurally sound, you can then just sand them down and give them a fresh and funky coat of paint every year. Add a bright new backsplash to go with them and your kitchen area will be good to go for another year at least!
