DIY an Outdoor Walkway
Outdoor walkways vary widely in cost depending on the size and materials you’re using, but you don’t have to go all out to add big value to your home.
Paint an Accent Wall
Accent walls are great for any room of the house. Popular options include behind your bed or in a laundry room or bathroom. Go bold with a vibrant color or maybe add some wood design for a different look.

It might seem like a major upgrade, but switching out traditional outlets for something modern with USB or WiFi capabilities will add functionality and style.
Install Modern Kitchen Hardware
Picking the right kitchen hardware for your home can be confusing, but staying on trend will tie the room together.
Hang String Lights
String lights provide incredible ambiance to your outdoor living area and aren’t difficult to hang.
Frame Out Your Bathroom Mirror
Take an old, outdated mirror and give it a modern look for a low cost with some wood trim.
Install a Stair Runner
Stair runners come in all shapes, sizes and styles to fit your space. A soft carpet feel is nice on your feet and might hide the sound of a squeaky step.
Swap Out Door Handles
The cost of switching out your home’s door handles will vary based on how many doors are in your house and how high-end you want to go. A modern sleek black finish is a much better look than an old gold or silver look. But find the style that fits best with the rest of your home.
