Do you want to make quick changes to your home to make it feel like new again? Here are some ideas for DIY renovations that can upgrade your space while remaining within your budget.
1. Install Interior Shutters
During hot Midwest summers, the sun can be blinding in the morning and the extra heat can increase your air conditioning bill. Interior shutters make it easier to keep out the winter cold and summer heat while also adding an extra layer of privacy in your home. Installation takes less than an hour and typically costs around $200.
2. New Flooring in the Laundry Room
Laundry and mudroom floors can be easily damaged and worn out. It may be time to find the right protective tile to make your floors last longer. Based on your needs, you can find a tile that is stain-resistant, affordable and moisture free.

3. Install Lights under Kitchen Cabinets
An inexpensive way to brighten up your home is by installing LED strip lights under your kitchen cabinets. LED lights are energy efficient, low maintenance, and are a simple way to modernize your kitchen. Installation couldn’t be any easier. LED strip lights are flexible, stick right onto your cabinets, and can be powered with AA batteries.
4. Pick Out a New Front Door
Front doors are the first impression of your home. A new door can range from $100 to $200 and can increase your home’s property value, be more energy efficient and can protect against harsh weather conditions.
