Check out these tips on an inexpensive home upgrade:

  1. If your home is like many, it probably has basic plastic light switches and plugs. The easiest improvement anyone can do is to upgrade the light switch covers. The best places to do this are in the bathrooms, kitchen, master bedroom, and at the front entrance. It adds a little extra touch that will definitely leave a great impression.


  2. If yours is also an older home, it probably does not have GFCI (ground-fault circuit interrupter) outlets. These outlets (identified by the red reset button) are used wherever water increases the risk of shock. To improve safety and add value to your home, replace regular outlets with GFCIís in the kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, and anywhere that water is present.


  3. Dimmer switches are also a nice touch to add in areas such as bedrooms, hallways and living rooms.

These are easy, do-it-yourself jobs; remember to always cut the power at the main panel before attempting these upgrades. If you are not familiar with how to safely replace an electrical outlet, hire a qualified electrician. This will push the cost over $100, but it will be worthwhile.
