The first area many of your guests will see when entering your home is the entryway or foyer. You always want your guests to be impressed from the moment they walk up, and a beautiful entryway will do just that. Updating the entryway to your home is an easy and budget-friendly way to increase your curb appeal. 

Front Door Updates

If you need inspiration for updating your front door, driving around local neighborhoods should do the trick. Although many homes have standard front doors, you can find a few that stand out when you drive by. There are several ways to make your home stand out with an updated front door. With hundreds of styles, sizes, and colors to choose from, it may become overwhelming to choose your favorite. However, you don’t have to replace your old door with a new one. A few ways to update your front door are by:

  • Repainting the old one
  • Installing a double door
  • Update the doorknob/handle
  • Add seasonal front door decor

Entryway lighting is an extremely easy and inexpensive way to update the front of your home.

Easy Landscaping Updates on a Budget

Landscaping is one aspect that can make or break the curb appeal of a home. Yard work may not seem very appealing or exciting, but a simple landscape design will help save you time and money in the long run. You don’t need extravagant bushes and flowers to make your landscape beautiful. In fact, it’s becoming more and more popular to have less landscaping that doesn’t take away from the beauty of your home. Sometimes, less really is more.

IKEA Landscaping

IKEA offers a great variety of landscaping options to help make the exterior of your home look more beautiful. With options like flower boxes and trellises, you can find exactly what you’re looking for at an incredible price at IKEA



Do you have furniture handed down from friends or family members that doesn’t quite match the rest of your home or decor that was inexpensive but could use an update? Reupholstering might be the solution for you. This is an extremely popular way to continue using your favorite pieces of furniture for many years while keeping your home updated. 

Updating Old Furniture

Maybe you’ve had it for years or found it on the side of the road. We’ve all had that one chair or sofa that we just can’t let go of. Reupholstering your favorite piece of furniture is an easy way to fit it into your beautiful home. With a multitude of pattern, texture, and design options, you’ll fall in love with what looks like a brand new piece of furniture. A few popular pieces of furniture to update are:

  • Bar stools
  • Living room sofa
  • Armchairs
  • Seat covering
  • Dining room chairs

Accessorize with Pillows

If you’ve got a ton of random pillows and cushions that no longer match your current furniture, don’t throw them out! Reupholstery can put those old cushions to great use with a fresh and new covering. New pillows can bring your living room couch to life, while old cushions can be used for pet beds, outdoor seating, and more. 


When many people think of upholstery, they think of chairs, sofas, and pillows. However, a unique way to take advantage of the budget-friendly project of upholstery is to update parts of your house that nobody sees very often. For example, upholstering lampshades is an inexpensive project that anyone can tackle! 


New Paint

You’d be surprised at what a fresh coat of paint can do for a home. An easy and exciting DIY project for the weekend, painting is one way to give a room the updated look and feel that you’ve been wanting. There are a multitude of ways to incorporate new paint into your home, and when one project is complete, you won’t want to stop. 


Sometimes a room needs a complete makeover. Whether you’re looking for a more spacious appearance or to refresh outdated colors, a new coat of paint on the walls will do the trick. There are several ways throw on a fresh coat of paint on your walls including:

  • Accent walls
  • Entire room
  • Ceiling 


You don’t have to buy new furniture in order to update your home. Repainting pieces of furniture in your home can give any room the update you’ve been dreaming about. If you’re looking to modernize your home, painting furniture is a fun and easy way to spend a free weekend. A few popular pieces of furniture to paint are:
