For many homeowners, there are things about their homes that they would love to change. While not everybody has the time and money required to take on a major remodel, there are plenty of relatively inexpensive small home improvement projects you can tackle in a weekend that will still make a big impact on your home. Try some of the following ideas to change things up without breaking the bank.
- Replace the hardware on your cabinets. One of the best ways to give your cabinets and other furniture a striking new look is to change out the old hardware for a fresh style.
- Upgrade an old fixture. Whether you replace your sink and faucet or install an eye-catching new overhead light, upgrading your fixtures is a great way to give your space a new look.
- Apply a fresh coat of paint. Brushing or rolling on a new paint color is a great way to freshen up and bring energy to any room. Fresh paint can also give new life to old wooden furniture.
- Invest in slipcovers. If you have upholstered sofas or chairs that are out of style but still in good shape, consider adding a slipcover or even reupholstering them. Either option is a less expensive alternative to buying new pieces. New throw pillows and throw blankets will also add a fresh splash of color or a seasonal flair.
- Give vent covers some attention. Whether you want them to stand out or blend in with floors or walls, giving your vent covers a good cleaning and then applying a new layer of spray paint will help you achieve this, depending on the color you use.
- Add interest with paneling. To make flat, boring hollow doors more interesting and to give them a high-end look, apply beadboard and add trim to the door panel.
- Spruce up the front porch. As one of the first sights to greet your guests, you want your front porch to be clean, attractive, and welcoming. A simple way to do this is by laying down a fun new doormat, putting up new house numbers, and hanging a seasonal wreath on the door.
