Mini-but-Mighty Remodels to Give Your House a Makeover

Don’t have the cash saved for a full-scale remodel? Pick one of these small, budget-smart projects to make big changes on a small budget.

When your dreams are big but your budget is small, it’s important to focus on the area where you can have the greatest impact. Even something as easy as swapping out the hardware on your kitchen cabinets can have a big impact—for relatively little cost. By focusing on these kinds of creative recycling projects and DIY upgrades, you can make a kitchen look fresh, modern and like just what a potential buyer might want.

Doors chomp up square footage opening and closing—but they’re necessary to screen views from one room to another or hide storage. A sliding barn door—used here to disguise adjacent dining and kitchen storage—offers a pretty solution. These kinds of doors roll on simple-to-install hardware; choose one with details that pick up on accents already in the room, or paint yours a contrasting color for a pop.
