Looking for some dramatic home improvement inspiration? Cruise through the pins on the Before & After board on the RE/MAX Pinterest page for examples of how a bit of strategic work can make a big difference.  Here are a few suggestions for projects that won’t break the bank or steal more than a weekend or two. 

1. Make an entrance

The entrance to your home is a focal point and a few simple changes  can leverage its impact. Sand and repaint your front door or invest in a  brand new one.  Add some bling with new address numbers, knobs, doorbells or knockers. Frame the door with planters to help complete the  picture.

2. Class up your cabinets

You don’t need to buy new cabinets to give your kitchen a new look.  Add a fresh coat of paint, or try out new cabinet hardware (buy knobs and pulls that are the same size as the ones you have to save installation time) for details that give the upgrade an added level of  elegance.

3. Make a splash

You don’t need to be a pro to install a new kitchen backsplash. Many home stores offer quick classes, or you can cruise YouTube for “how-to”  videos. Customize your kitchen with ceiling tiles, glass or ceramic tiles, wood or stainless steel.

4. Crown yourself

Crown molding around your walls is a simple addition that can add a  ton of character. If you don’t have woodworking tools, don’t panic.  Home improvement stores can cut strips of molding to your measurements.

5. Look to the little things

You’d be surprised at how much of a difference swapping out old switch plates, outlet covers and doorknobs can make.
