So while home remodeling projects are a priority for many homeowners looking to make their house a home, some shy away for fear of unwanted debt. But this doesn't have to be the case.

Looking for some easy ways to make your home your castle without breaking the bank? Then read on!

Here are 5 easy home renovations you can do that cost less than $100.

1. Entryway Pizazz: If the front of your home is lacking true curb appeal, try sprucing it up. Apply some new paint to your door (think bright and welcoming), buy some simple flower planters for a flanked, tasteful entry, and throw down a welcome mat. It's that easy.

2. Apply Furniture Covers: For those who are looking for nominal yet financially sound ways of adding a new look to their living areas, consider covered chairs and couches in new material. Vibrant colors and fabrics can turn shabby into chic in a hurry.

3. Bulbs Burning Bright: Under lit is underwhelming. Whereas over lit is too dramatic. So find the middle ground. Install some track lighting instead of using traditional overhead lights, and change out incandescent bulbs for highly efficient fluorescent. Not only will you save money, your home will feel more welcoming and relaxing.

4. Bathroom Luxury: It's 2015, what does your bathroom look like? Change out those old, drab switch plates for new and fancy styles. Follow our lighting advice from above. Replace old toilet seats and simple bathroom hardware, and throw down some new bath mats and rugs. Top it off with some new, clean paint and enjoy your bathroom once again.

5. Drapes Add Special Flair: Take a walk around your home and count the windows where the drapes have lived for a year or more. Now head to your home improvement store and do some pricing. A simple drapery change, like adding a valance or swag, or even changing curtains all together, will add creative flair and whimsy to those windows we have forgotten.
