When I think of making changes or upgrades to my home, “cheap” and “easy” aren’t usually the first words that come to mind. Usually, “overwhelming” and “expensive” and “I don’t even know where to start” are the frontrunners. But, as it turns out, there are many cheap and easy home upgrades that will impress not only you, but also housemates and guests. I mean, imagine your roommate’s or your partner’s delight when they see how much better the kitchen looks with the new storage baskets you found, or how nice the bathroom is with a set of matching accessories that only look expensive.

You might even — dare I say — feel inspired to have friends over without feeling like you have to rush around cleaning before they arrive (I’m not the only one who still does that, am I?). Whatever your motivation, this list will give you some ideas for how to make some quick, inexpensive and easy changes in your home that you can enjoy and appreciate for a long time — or at least until you’re ready to change things up again.
