Home Improvements and Which Ones to Do

 Whether you plan to sell in the near future, or just want to improvethe value of your home, here is one low cost improvement you should consider.

Replace laminate kitchen countertops. This is a more expensive project than just painting, but it can dramatically improve the look of your kitchen-for less than 15 percent of the cost of gutting your kitchen and starting over. The laminates of today are available in all kind of colors and patterns, some of which resemble much more expensive solid surface materials, such as stone or tile.
Another benefit-replacing your laminate kitchen counters can be a one-day job, rather than the 8-12 weeks of disruption you can expect with a complete kitchen remodel.

An Easy Furniture Fix – Without Calling an Expert

Mask scratches in wood furniture

Although furniture refinishers would prefer to have your business, you can save hundreds of dollars by hiding scratches using one of several inexpensive methods. Pick up a putty pencil or scratch polish from the hardware store. Make sure it matches the colour of your wood finish. Apply as directed, and presto! The scratch disappears-not your money.
