This fall, FALL in love with your house again! Feeling blah about your home, not looking forward to a long winter staring at the same four walls and tired decor? For $10,000 combined these 3 projects can improve how you feel about your home.
- PUT ON A NEW FACE. Give your kitchen cabinets new life with paint and more modern fixtures. Want to step it up a notch? Consider new doors and drawer covers from a cabinetmaker or doormaker. Refacing the average size kitchen runs around $6,000.
- LET THERE BE MORE LIGHT. Dark spaces are a common complaint among homeowenrs. Try tublar skylights for small spaces such as bathrooms and hallways and are far more affordable than full skylights. Four tubes installed will set you back a mere $2,000. Good investment for more natural light.
- TIDY UP. Invest in built-in organization systems to help declutter key problem areas: master bedroom closet, laundry room and pantry. Expect to spend around $1,000 for these space saving additions. Then consider hiring a professional organizer to help purge and tidy up what you decide to keep ($50-$150 and hour).
