How to give your home a facelift without breaking the bank

Whether you are getting ready to sell or just loving your home, here are four projects that give a lot of bang for the buck.

1) Refresh your entry

updating your entry is often called a seller's best investment… lights, house numbers, welcome mat, front door (new or paint existing door), potted plants help people (you included) fall in love with your home before even entering


 2) Refresh your kitchen

new cabinet hardware, fresh paint and new lighting make a dramatic update at low cost… new countertops and appliances can make it even better


3) Refresh your bathroom

you don't need a major remodel to refresh your bathroom… it's amazing what something as simple as a deep cleaning and some fresh towels, fixtures, curtains and rugs can do


4) Refresh your room with a color makeover

whether you go dramatic or subdued, nothing can change the feel of a room as quickly as fresh colors
