We all know the feeling of looking around the house and wanting to make a few changes...

As this year begins to wrap up and with the holidays right around the corner you may be wanting to upgrade a few things around the house. From simple DIY projects like changing the kitchen knobs to painting your tile, we've compiled a list of 8 easy (and affordable) upgrades you can make both inside and outside of your home before the holidays. 

Curtains

Adding curtains can make your windows look bigger, your ceilings look taller, and add privacy throughout your home. Try placing the rod a foot above your window for added height!

Paint

A fresh coat of paint may be one of the easiest upgrades you can make. Whether it's getting rid of those bright colors for a more calming feel or adding in a fun statement, you can't go wrong.

Lighting

Replacing outdated sconces, upgrading your bathroom vanity lights, or simply replacing your light bulbs for ones with a different hue can elevate your space.

Suggestion: Phillips Hue Lightbulbs

Floating Shelves 

For a modern, open look that displays your beautiful dishes consider adding a few floating shelves to an empty kitchen wall.

Upgraded Gallery Wall

Is your gallery wall full of mismatched frames? Upgrade to one style and size for a cohesive, elevated look.

Hide the Wires

You'd be surprised how big of a difference organizing your wires can impact how put together your home looks.

Suggestion: $17.99 for a cord cover kit.

The Frame TV

Make your TV look like a piece of art by investing in a Frame TV. Offering frame and art options this is one of the pricier items on the list but it will surely elevate your space.

Under Cabinet Lights

Not only will this add a warm element to your kitchen, gone are the days of not being able to see your cookbook.

DIY May Not be Enough...

A DIY project may not do the trick if you're trying to squeeze into a space that is just too small or doesn't meet your current needs. If you're considering selling before the holidays, let's get started.
