Home Improvements You Can Make on a Budget

At KCI, we always build homes with flowing floor plans and quality features so that you do not have to worry about a thing. You can just move in and enjoy your home. And for those who want more of a voice in the building process, we do offer a custom experience. But it is natural for style and needs to change over time. And even if your home was exactly what you wanted when you purchased it, you may be itching to change things up now. Not everyone wants to or can afford a full kitchen remodel to satisfy that itch, but that is ok! Here are some worthwhile home improvement projects that are friendly to your wallet.

Upgrade the Entryway

The entryway is the first area people walk in when they arrive home, and often the place where you drop off keys, shoes, and bags. You can upgrade the space by adding some storage by the door. Introduce a multipurpose bench to the area. One that serves as a place to stow away shoes and bags and a place to rest and put your shoes on before you run out the door. A simple piece of furniture is the perfect way to take this part of the home to a whole new place.

Take Advantage of Lighting

A change in lighting can make all the difference in the world in terms of the mood and functionality of a room. By utilizing a mixture of ambient, task, and accent lighting you can create a layered effect. Even just a simple switch for an artistic pendant light can uplift the style in a room.

Give Your Front Door a Facelift

Just switching up the color of your front door can make your home seem more inviting. Choosing a punchy color can be a fun way to mix in youthfulness with sophistication. Or adding milling to your front door can make your home feel more grandeur and elegant. Even replacing your home number plates for something more personalized can make a huge difference for a very minimal amount of money.

There are tons of small ways you can upgrade the style and livability of your home, and you do not have to spend a fortune to do it.
