Upgrade Your Cabinet Hardware

Adding new door and drawer handles (pulls) can instantly update your cabinets and give them a more modern look.
There are many price points and you can go lower end or higher. Prices range starting from $2 and up. You may even find a retailer that will allow you to get them in bulk for a cheaper price.
A Lighting Upgrade
If have the original lighting still in a house you bought 10 years or more ago the chances are they are very outdated. Good lighting is usually one of the very first things noticed in a home. It can literally change everything – the entire feel of a room or a home.
Yes, lighting can be expensive but try focusing on one area of your home at a time. Try adding a statement chandelier or some pendant lighting in your kitchen area.
If you have a room that tends to be a little dim, adding more lighting will often make the space feel bigger and brighter.
Also another idea is add a dimmer switch to your dining room lighting to create great atmosphere for entertaining.
Install a New Bathtub
Yes a tub installation could possibly cost more than $1000 but in some cases you can find some deals. You could even modify your existing tub area doing a re-bath project whereas new materials are placed over your existing bathtub and shower area.
