When it comes to remodeling your home, cost and time invested are always very important factors to consider. If you're like most people, you may feel overwhelmed at just the thought of home renovations or you're unsure of where to even start. Fortunately, there are several ways you can give your home small tweaks that make a huge impact while keeping your wallet full.

Here are 5 simple remodeling projects to get started on for a great first impression on your next home tour.

1. Paint.

Applying a fresh coat of paint is a great way to add some fun flair to the rooms in your house. If you don't want to change the color completely, go for a different shade or even consider painting one of the walls in a bright color. This will add some nice depth and brightness to the room as well as some pops of color.

2. Lighting.

This is a small tweak to your home that can make a huge difference, and can really improve the overall feel and comfort of the house. You can remove shadows from work spaces by using under-cabinet lights. Install dimmer lights at a low cost to create a nice ambiance. Also, replace the fan blades on your ceiling fans for a subtle but updated and trendy new look.

Updating fixtures in your home is another simple, low-cost way to remodel in a small but big way. Replace door handles, hinges, faucets, and light switch plates for an updated look throughout your home. Keeping up with new home design trends will resonate with new home buyers because you'll have all the latest styles.

Installing crown moulding, baseboards or wainscoting is a sure-fire way to create a more refined look. Your new trim and moulding will add beautiful detail and elegance to your home as well as appeal to all types of home buyers' senses.


5. Flooring.

Last but not least is your home's flooring. Although it tends to be easily overlooked, updating your hardwood floors as well as carpets makes a world of difference to your home's overall feel. Replace any carpet that looks worn or matted and refinish your hardwood floors for a polished look that can dramatically improve an entire room.

Whether or not you're getting your house ready to sell, these remodeling tweaks are easy, cost-effective, and will result in a great new look. They may be small, but these renovations make a huge impact, making your home feel like new!
