Replace switch plates and faceplates
Homeowners often overlook how updating the little details can pack a big punch when it comes to improving the look of your home without breaking the bank. Marty Basher, a home improvement and organization expert says to start by replacing old and dirty switch plates and outlet faceplates.
Decent switch plates and faceplates range from $5 to $15 at home improvement stores like Lowe’s or even big-box retailers like Walmart, “which can add up for larger homes with two or more stories, but by tackling these upgrades room by room, you avoid breaking the bank,” Basher says.
He recommends sticking to options available in bronze, stainless steel, tile and porcelain and looks for those featuring designs and textures.
