What would you do with $10,000?
This year, we’re teaming up with the Carolina Panthers to give one lucky winner a $10,000 Visa gift card to use renovate a room in their house or simply use however they’d like. Because it’s fun to think about the ‘what ifs,’ here are some of the best home improvements projects you could accomplish with $10,000.
Garage door replacement
Not only can you easily accomplish this project for way less than $10,000 but you can also expect to recoup 96% of your investment when it comes time to sell! You can expect to spend about $3,600 on a carriage-style 16 x 7 garage door.
For $10,000 you can pull off a minor kitchen makeover that can easily transform your space.
You could paint, reface cabinet doors, upgrade your sink and even add a new tiled backsplash. If you choose to do the painting on your own, you could have enough left in your budget to add quartz or granite countertops, depending on the amount of square footage of your counters. Going with butcher block for your countertops is great cost-effective option, if your budget won’t allow for quartz or granite.
Even minor touches can go along way: Just look at how one DIY home blogger transformed her space for $1,000!
