5 Easy Swaps to Update Your Home On a Budget

Major home renovations can be costly. But what do you do if you want to change the look of your home? Here are a few quick and easy swaps that can help make your home look modern and stylish without breaking the bank.

Swap #1: Retire Your Heavy Drapes. Remove the heavy drapes covering your windows and add blinds or sheer panels instead. This will allow more light into your room and help your room appear larger.

Swap #2: Ditch the Textured Ceiling. One of the biggest things that will make your home appear dated is your textured ceilings. If you have the “popcorn ceiling,” you can always scrape and sand your ceiling and repaint it. While losing the textured ceiling can be a little labor intensive, it can make a large difference.

Swap #3: Replace Tile Countertops. While tile countertops were popular in the 80s and 90s, there’s a reason they went out of style. Tile countertops are difficult because they chip easily and grout can be a difficult thing to clean. Try replacing kitchen countertops with a solid surface. With so many options, like Marble, quartz, granite, wood, stainless steel, concrete or soapstone, you can find a replacement counter that fits into your budget.

Swap #4: Invest in New Cabinet Hardware. You may not overhaul your entire kitchen, but one way to update your kitchen on a budget is to swap out old hardware on your cabinets. New handle pulls aren’t very expensive and can transform the look of older kitchen cabinets.

Swap #5: Upgrade Your Analog Thermostat. You may not realize it, but replacing your thermostat is a great way to add value to your home and bring it up-to-date. Programmable thermostats are eco-friendly, and can save you money on your heating and cooling bill!

Just these few affordable swaps can help transform your home. If you’re ready to sell your house, reach out to a HUNT Real Estate Sales professional today.

Why HUNT Insurance?

Some people think it doesn't matter where they buy their insurance. This misconception could be costing you money, service, and protection. Buying insurance is not like buying bread or milk, it's an important safety net for your family, your home, your car or your business. Don't treat the purchase lightly!

There is a difference in where you buy your protection. Many people don't realize there are four sources for insurance:
  • Captive Agents - Sell consumers the insurance of only one company.
  • Telephone Representatives - Offer consumers the insurance of one company and only via the telephone.
  • Internet Sites - Consumers can fill out an application online and get an insurance quote without any help or direction from a qualified professional.
  • Independent Insurance Agents - Represent an average of eight insurance companies and research with these firms to find consumers the best combination of price, coverage, and service.
HUNT Insurance provides a licensed professional with strong customer and community ties. We strive to provide excellent service and competitive prices because we can access the insurance coverage from more than one company. Our agents are your insurance consultants and assist you when you have insurance claims.
