5 Home Improvements Under $100 to Boost the Value of Your House

by Hunter Deegan 12/28/2018

Home improvements are a great way to add value to your home if you’re hoping to sell in the near future. The problem is, however, that many home improvements are costly and time-consuming. And, if you don’t plan carefully, they could even cost more than the amount of value you add to the home.

The good news is that there are several home improvement projects that will cost you less than $100 and won’t uproot your life in the meantime.

In this article, we’re going to give you five home improvements, all under $100, that can add value to your home. That way when you do decide to sell, you won’t have to scramble to make updates. Read on for the list.

1. Add a fresh coat of paint to your trim and baseboards (Cost: $75 - $100)

Trim and baseboards fall prey to getting kicked and covered in dust and cobwebs over the years. Adding a fresh coat of white paint will make an entire room feel new.

2. Improve your lighting (Cost: ~$50)

Bright lights help to make the rooms of your home feel more spacious. If you can’t increase the natural light of a room, bright, LEDs are the next best alternative.

The cost of LEDs is constantly decreasing, and they’re becoming more energy-efficient as well. To really get the most value out of your budget, use different color temperatures depending on the mood of the room (warm for bedrooms, bright white for bathrooms, etc.).

3. Add a burst of color to your front door (Cost: ~$20)

It can be difficult to increase curb appeal on a tight budget. One way to do so is to repaint your door a bright color that stands out but still fits with the style of your home.

4.Install a new shower head (Cost: $80 - $100)

Adding a new shower head to the main bathroom is a great way to add a bit of luxury to the room. While many stainless steel shower heads cost around $200, there are several chrome options that look just as nice and cost half the price.

5.Upgrade your hardware (Cost: $50 - $80)

Replacing your kitchen cabinets is an expensive endeavor. However, you can easily revamp your existing cabinets by replacing their hardware. Add a fresh coat of paint and they’ll look brand new.

Outside the kitchen, you can also update towel racks, bathroom drawer knobs, coat hooks, and other outdated hardware. Using a consisted, dark color throughout the home is a good way to give your house a theme and a sense of continuity.


With these five simple upgrades, you can increase the value of your home, boost your curb appeal, and avoid breaking the bank at the same time.
