Home improvements tend to inspire thoughts of large, expensive
projects. Yet, it is often the little things that add so much value. Do
you want to improve your home for resale or personal pleasure but don't
want to spend a lot of money? Here are 10 improvements for under $100
each from Motley Fool.
A tired old mailbox detracts from your home's appeal. Replace it with a new one made of quality materials. Depending on the style that best suits your home, you can choose brass, iron, or other materials. You can put one of those cute green mallards on it, or some other visual motif calculated to offend the neighbors.
Anything at the front door will affect your enjoyment of your home as well as a prospective buyer's impression. Replace that worn, dirty doormat with a fresh new one.
3) Street numbers
Make your house easy to find with bold street numbers in brass, iron, ceramic, or other quality materials. Sure, those old falling-down aluminum ones work all right, but it would be better if the gap were filled where the "6" is supposed to be, don't you think?
