Home improvements are a great way to boost both the appearance as well as the functionality of your home, however, oftentimes many home improvement projects are overlooked, or simply, under rated. Among the full remodels, kitchen upgrades, and new flooring, there are a few home improvements that don’t get the credit the deserve.
Under Rated Home Improvements
- Baseboards – The most under rated upgrade is baseboards. Whether you’re giving your current baseboards a deep cleaning, or adding new baseboards throughout your home, this design element can instantly elevate the appearance of your home and make it look much crisper and cleaner.
- House Numbers – Upgrading your house numbers not only can help boost your curb appeal but can make your home much easier to find for visitors or delivery drivers. Lit house numbers are a great improvement to add to your home as it allows your home to found easily during all times of day.
- Window Coverings – From blinds to curtains and nearly every style in-between, new window coverings can add a variety of uses to your home, from light filtering to design and décor, window coverings can easily boost both your interior design and curb appeal, as well as provide functionality for your desired lighting needs.

- Area Rugs – Can’t afford all new flooring? No problem! Area rugs can boost the décor and style in your room without breaking the bank. Whether you’re using the area rug to cover old carpet, are hoping to create a more defined room within an open concept layout, or simply want a new design element, area rugs are a great option for all.
- Caulking – Unfortunately, mold is prone to grow in wet areas, and areas that require caulk such as bathtubs, showers, windowsills, or kitchen joints, can start to show signs of mold growth even if cleaned regularly. Luckily, this is an easy fix, and you can remove the old caulk, clean the debris and/or mold that was trapped under the caulking and run a fresh bead of new caulk once clean and dry.
- Doors – Another feature that is often forgotten is the doors within your home. From the front door to bedrooms and bathrooms, keeping your doors not only clean, but cohesive and matching throughout your home is a great home improvement that keeps the flow of your home looking it’s best.
