The home-improvement boom shows no signs of slowing. Half of homeowners recently polled by, a design and remodeling site, say they plan to start or continue renovations at a median cost of $10,000.

We’ve highlighted 10 small projects—most of which won’t cost more than $10,000—that can increase your enjoyment of your home in a big way. In most cases, you won’t recoup the full cost of the project when you sell, but it could help attract buyers when you put your home on the market.
