1. Don’t underestimate the importance of landscaping. Curb appeal is important to the value of a home, and it can also serve as a way to deter intruders. Adding some neatly trimmed shrubbery, or stone walkways can go a long way to make a home look better and be safer, and it’s also relatively easy to complete.
2. Adding a storm door is simple, and can make a home not only safer, but also more energy efficient. There are a number of storm door designs that are also visually appealing, so this project is another quick and easy way to improve the overall curb appeal of a home.
3. Replace light fixtures in both the interior and exterior of a home. A homeowner doesn’t have to be a professional electrician to easily replace fixtures that are outdated. New lights can make a home more stylish, and can also make a home safer on the exterior.
4. Do it yourself security systems are generally easy enough for even a beginner to install, and they make a home safe. Security systems are also something many buyers look for, so they improve the value of a home. Wireless security systems have come a long way in recent years, and the installation process is fairly simple, and requires no hard-wiring.
5. Add a tile backsplash in the kitchen. Most home improvement stores have premade mosaic style backsplashes that offer ultra-easy installation. A backsplash can change the entire look of a kitchen, and with new options, it’s not necessary that a homeowner have any tile experience to properly install one.
