Improving your home can be a difficult task. Many homeowners don’t even know where to start when it comes to home improvement projects. Once you do find something to improve, it can cost more than it’s worth in some cases, at least in terms of resale value. There are some major home improvements that can make a difference without completely emptying your savings account. Check out these 10 home improvement projects under $20 below to inspire you.
1. Replace a Window Treatment
Replace a stained window covering with an inexpensive fabric treatment and see your kitchen in a whole new light.
2. Brighten a Bookcase
Give your bookcase an exciting backdrop by applying contact paper, scrapbook paper, or fabric to its back.
3. Tackle Trimwork
Installing new trimwork will cost a lot. So, replace mismatched, missing, or damaged moldings, end caps, quarter rounds, or baseboard. Curved areas might require a special piece or trim made of an alternate material.
4. Charging Station
Make a mini charging station by cutting small slits in a basic ledge shelf to enable cords to run behind and inside the hollow shelf before being plugged in below.
5. Get Stylish Underfoot
Create a fun, personalized focal point with a fun paint technique and updating the flooring with a custom rug.
6. Add a Cheap Backsplash
Give your backsplash a new look by adding a large vintage map as the backdrop that makes a statement.
7. Add a Divider
Secure a wire rack inside a cabinet to provide sturdy storage for cookie sheets, muffin tins, and cooling racks.
8. Step Up Storage
Take your inventory and identify your item using clear bins for storage in your pantry. Use labels to ensure everything stays tidy and easy to access.
9. Streamline Under the Sink
This slim solution maximizes under-sink space while keeping kitchen essentials within easy reach.
10. Add Hanging Storage
Free up your floor space with a hanging storage in your basement, garage, or even your entryway. Add hooks to an unused wall or ceiling and discover space you didn’t know you had.
