Top 10 High-Impact Home Updates That Cost $30 or Less

Panel a Plain Door

The easiest way to make a big, designer-worthy impact in your space? Update the doors. Jenna Sue of Jenna Sue Design Co. turned her plain door into a paneled Shaker-style door for just $12 by attaching plywood panels and painting it a rich black shade. Since most Shaker doors can retail for over $200, we’ll call this project a steal!

Give Cabinets a Lift

Add height and interest to your builder grade cabinets without paying the hefty price tag of custom cabinetry. Interior designer Sarah Macklem from The Yellow Cape Cod achieved this rich, tall cabinet look in her own kitchen by adding pre-primed MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard) and decorative crown molding to the tops of her cabinets. 

Mirrored Closet Doors

Make a small bedroom look larger by adding mirrors to plain closet doors. Simply pick up a couple of cheap, framed floor-length mirrors for less than $10 at your local big box store, paint the frame to match and attach to your closet door with construction adhesive for a permanent look or removable picture-hanging strips if you’re renting. Feeling extra crafty? Glue thin trim pieces to the mirrors for a high-end look. 

Mailbox Makeover

Boost your curb appeal instantly by giving that old, tired mailbox a quick, inexpensive spruce. Eileen of Just Measuring Up updated her mailbox for just under $20 with some basic supplies from the hardware store and a fresh coat of paint. Pro tip: before installing a new mailbox, remember to check with the postal service for current installation guidelines. 

Painted Marble

Make a worn dining table look luxurious by transforming the tabletop into a piece of chic (faux) marble. This unique and crafty DIY combines leftover project paint, ultra high-gloss epoxy, and basic craft supplies to recreate the veining lines and texture found in real marble. Patience and a designated project day will save you anywhere from $500-$1,000 when dreaming of your very own marble furniture piece.

DIY Glass-Front Cabinets

Brighten up your kitchen and put that gorgeous wedding china on display by replacing existing interior wood cabinet panels with Lexan polycarbonate glass-substitute sheets. A 12×12 Lexan insert runs about $8, meaning this project will likely only set you back $16.

Under-Cabinet Lighting

Set the mood in your kitchen by installing soft, inexpensive lighting under the cabinets. A 3-pack of LED puck lights costs around $10 and is ultra-easy to install. But puck lighting isn’t the only option — this helpful guide can help you pick the perfect under-cabinet lighting for your wants and needs.
