When you live in a home for several years, it’s easy to turn a blind eye to how dated and run down it becomes over time. This can cause problems and cost you a fortune when you decide you’re ready to sell and suddenly realize that you’re home isn’t in an acceptable state. To avoid this happening, it’s best to update occasionally instead of waiting until the last minute. For ways that you can update your home slowly without breaking the bank, take a look at these 24 blog entries.  


The kitchen is a key room in the home, as it’s where many families spend a good amount of time. Giving your cabinets a fresh coat of paint and updating the hardware are easy upgrades that don’t cost a lot of money. By doing one update at a time, you can avoid a huge renovation bill at the end. These six blog articles will give you some ideas on how to update your kitchen without spending a fortune. Sure, you probably keep it clean, but take a look at the cabinets.  Could they stand a coat of paint?


The bathroom is another room in the house that gets a lot of traffic, so it’s important that it’s updated.
