We all dream about creating our perfect home, but this also comes with a big price tag. Therefore, I have created this article that outlines 5 home improvement projects under £1000 so you can still have the home you want at an affordable price.

This article covers everything from small changes like re-painting the walls to replacing countertops so no matter what area of your home you want to improve, you will be able to find something in this article.

Replace the bathtub

The first home improvement project I am going to cover is to replace the bathtub. Over time, the bathtub can become worn out and start to look old, which in turn makes the rest of the bathroom look old. Luckily, you can acquire some great bathtubs at an affordable price. Replacing the bathtub will immediately make your bathroom look fresher and done up.

If you are able to stretch your budget slightly further, then I’d suggest removing your bathtub and replacing it with a walk-in shower. This is a great way to add value to your home and make your bathroom look brand new.

Upgrade your appliances

If you’ve had your kitchen appliances for many years, then the chances are they will look tatty and old. If you have moved a lot then they may also have marks or scratches on them from the move or just from general wear and tear of using them every day.

There are loads of high-quality affordable kitchen appliances that you can acquire to make your home look brand new. If you have your eye on something slightly more expensive, then wait until it’s in the sale and then you can buy it so you’re still sticking to your budget but you’re also getting the appliance that you want.

Replace the countertops

One thing that always gets marked and chipped over time is the countertops. This just happens through general wear and tear, but the more imperfections your countertops have, the more impact this is going to have on how the rest of your space looks.

Although there are some materials that can be quite expensive such as marble or quartz, you can easily pick up some more affordable countertop materials that will still make your home look brand new such as ceramic tile or laminate countertops. Replacing your countertops will not only make your house look new but will also modernise your home.

Re-paint your home

An extremely simple yet effective way to give your home a transformation is to re-paint your home. Giving your walls a fresh coat of paint will immediately transform the way your space looks. You can either go for the same colour that your walls currently are or you could experiment with introducing different colours into your home.

Another way that you can experiment with the use of colour is through a feature wall. This is a great way to introduce some colour into your home and make a bold statement.

DIY landscaping

Now that I have covered affordable home improvements for the inside of your home, it is time to move on to the exterior of your home. When it comes to a home improvement project, balance is everything. You need to make sure that you are giving the exterior of your home as much attention as the interior.

Landscaping your garden by yourself doesn’t have to be a complicated task or an expensive one. Keeping on top of the grass is the first step to having a beautiful garden. If you aren’t particularly green-fingered then buying fake grass is a great way to keep your garden looking fresh without doing too much work.

You can then add plants and flowers to your garden to keep it looking fresh and updated.

Time to get started on your own home improvement project

Now that I have shared 5 home improvement projects under £1000 it’s time for you to get started on your own home improvement project. To ensure you spend your money wisely, start by determining what rooms you want to focus on first so that you don’t spread your budget too thin.
