Updated: Mar 25

Giving your home an updated look doesn't have to be overwhelming. Simple, budget-friendly home improvement projects can make a big difference. Here are some ideas to consider if you're looking to give your Colorado home a facelift without breaking the bank.

Paint A Room or Accent Wall Your Favorite Color for Instant Home Improvement

A fresh coat of paint can make any room look more modern and stylish. If painting an entire room seems like a daunting task, consider painting an accent wall. An accent wall should be a bold color that stands out and grabs your attention. If you are looking for something a little more challenging, create an accent wall with a design. This will take more work and creativity, but will still only require paint, tape, and stencils if needed.

Start A Garden

Springtime is the perfect opportunity to start a garden. Gardening in the high desert of Denver Colorado will take some time to perfect, but fortunately is fairly simple and cost-effective. Purchasing flower pots, garden decor, and a watering can from the Dollar Store is sure to keep you on budget. However, you should purchase higher quality potting soil as well as seeds from a home improvement store such as Home Depot. If you do not want to start with seeds, you can also transplant a partially grown plant into your garden.

Hang Curtains

Hanging curtains is a great way to add color and design to a room. All you will need is a curtain rod, curtains, and a drill or screwdriver. If you have an accent wall, matching colored curtains will help tie the room together. They are also beneficial in the spring and summertime to help deflect the heat. Adding curtains to any room is sure to make your house feel like home!
