Do you ever look around your home and think it just needs “something”? Whether your decor is bland, or things don’t function as well as you’d like, sometimes a change will really do you good. These twelve home renovation projects can be completed in a few days or less, and won’t break the bank. But the best part? They make a big difference in how your home looks and feels.
Spruce up your entryway. Swap out your front door for a new one, install outdoor lighting, or improve your front porch. Add a new welcome mat and a few potted plants, and you’ll be even happier to return home at the end of each day.
Install a kitchen island. Are you lacking countertop space, but don’t want to splurge on an entire kitchen remodel? Add an island to the middle of the room.
Change the kitchen backsplash. If new cabinets and countertops just aren’t within your budget, switch out the kitchen backsplash. Making just this one simple change can alter the look of the entire room.
Change out old faucets. If faucets are leaking or look dated, it’s time for them to go. Swap out bathroom and kitchen faucets, and don’t forget to check out all the new options available on the market. Your kitchen sink can function better than ever before.
Add an accent wall. Paint or wallpaper one wall to add an interesting focal point to your favorite room.
Install new light fixtures. Light fixtures are another feature that can look dated over time, without you even realizing it. Plus, newer ones can bring more light into a room, improving function and creating a cheerier environment.
Install dimmer switches. Instantly change the mood of any room with dimmer switches. They’re easy to install but multiply your lighting options.
Shop for new windows. If your windows are old, outdated, or energy inefficient, it’s time to consider new ones. This project is a bit more complicated, but very well worth the investment because you can save around 25 percent off your electric bill.
Refresh your cabinets. Repaint tired old cabinets in a trending color, and add new hardware. You will be amazed at how different kitchens and bathrooms look.
Renovate your storage spaces. Add shelves in closets, the laundry room, or the garage to add more storage capability to your home. Consider a medicine cabinet for the bathroom, or an entryway console for stashing gloves, keys, and other necessities.
Install sliding doors. Certain areas of the home can get too cluttered, with multiple doors bumping into one another or standing in the way. Switch them out for sliding doors, for a more sleek and modern look that doesn’t feel so frenzied.
Get rid of that old shower insert. Over time, shower inserts can leak anyway. Replace it with a luxurious bathtub, and enjoy the bathroom of your dreams.
The above projects can range from simple to somewhat complicated, depending upon the circumstances. Call us to discuss your home renovation ideas, and we can help you achieve the look and function that you desire from your home.
