A little money goes a long way with these imaginative projects. You can do most of them yourself. Sometimes home improvements are out of reach for the moment. A kitchen upgrade can cost tens of thousands of dollars you might not have to spend right now. Other improvements are unavoidable, but also expensive and unsatisfying at the same time — take a roof replacement for one example. But if you’re in the mood to spruce up your home, there are plenty of doable projects that make a real difference and won’t cost you an arm and a leg. The following improvements should run you less than $100 but will help make your home look and feel like a million bucks.
