Details make the difference in a home that's accessible and convenient to live in. These suggestions are for upgrades and replacements that enhance your home and make it comfortable to get around and a safe place for everyone who lives there.

Some of these upgrades are easy for a do-it-yourselfer, others are not.

HomeAdvisor is a free referral service connecting homeowners with local contractors.

The link for each individual project takes you to project cost data with information about what’s involved and the cost of doing the work yourself compared with hiring a professional. You can localize the job cost to where you live by typing your ZIP Code in the cost box.
