How to Make Your New House Your Dream Home

In a competitive real estate market, many hopeful homebuyers are making offer after offer – and losing bidding war after bidding war. If your goal is to get into a house this year, you may not end up in your first-choice home. But that doesn’t mean that your dream home is out of reach.

Projects to Turn Your New Home into Your Dream Home

From quick and easy DIYs to major renovations, there are a variety of projects that can make your new home better fit your style and needs.


One of the easiest ways to refresh and personalize a home is to paint the walls. Don’t be afraid to play with color or try something fun. If it doesn’t work, just paint over it!

Change Lights and Fixtures

Brighten up your space with new lights. Modernize your cabinets and fixtures with fresh hinges, knobs, faucets and outlets.

Add Function

Would an organized mudroom make your daily life easier? Could a remodeled laundry room save you time? Think about how remodeling could make your home better meet your needs, and prioritize accordingly.

Go Green

If you’re dreaming of a home that reduces your carbon footprint and keeps your cost of home ownership down, there are many ways to add sustainable features.

Remodel the Kitchen

Yes, a kitchen remodel is a big project. But the kitchen is the heart of a home and where you spend the most time. To make your home feel like yours, start in the kitchen. (On a budget? Check out our tips on how to save money on a kitchen remodel.)
