Tip #1. Kitchen Upgrade:
Kitchen improvement has emerged as a leading 2016 home improvement project. You can go full throttle and recreate the dream kitchen we see on Pinterest or other top rated magazine.

Tip #2. Adding a patio or deck:
Patios add much needed extra space in a home A recent 2016 survey showed that we have an insatiable appetite for the outdoors, patios and decks included. And this is something you can easily do. The good news is that it does not have to be expensive or require professionals. Many companies can design and construct a pre-fab patio for you. They only need you to send the measurements and select a design of the patio you want from their catalog.
Tip #3. Change your front door:
Changing your front door may not be considered as a leading home improvement. However, a general survey has indicated that a home has an authentic and visible improvement feel and look when its front door has been remodeled or changed. A new front door is not expensive. It’s possible to get a brand new steel door at 2k including installation fees.
Tip #4. Transform an attic into a bedroom or home office:
This has the potential to be the leading home improvement project in this year. Attics can be turned into an extra bedroom or better still, transform it into your home office. In fact, the possibilities are limitless, simply follow your fancy.
