DIY Projects for Your Home

Updated: Aug 28, 2020

Need some inspiration on ways to spruce up your home? AZ Insurance Team has some that are easy and cost-effective ideas that will add a custom, fresh look to your space.

Paint your front door an eye-catching color. Go to your local home improvement store and pick up a sander, primer, and your exterior paint color. Make sure to sand any imperfections away before priming the door. Adding a pop of color to the exterior of your home will showcase your personality and style! If you are focused on increasing your home's value, a Zillow study shows that, on average, painting your front door charcoal gray or black will boost the value by $6,000.

Update your garage door with hinges. Creating a custom feel for your garage doors is much easier than you realize. Door hinges are available on Amazon for around $12; a far cry from the thousands of dollars a new garage door would cost. The best part of these hinges? They are magnetic! This means no hardware required, simply attach the hinges to your garage door and you're all set.

Spray paint outdated hardware. Is your home showing it's age by brass hardware on your doors and cabinets? Rather than purchasing all new door knobs and cabinet pulls, simply spray paint the hardware for an updated effect. Whether it's a brushed nickel or matte black finish, spray painting your hardware is a cost effective and easy solution for a more custom feel.

Simple and effective DIY updates for your home will not only improve value, it will create a space that you enjoy being in. After all, that's what home is all about!
