DIY Easy Home Improvement Projects
Moulding – Adding decorative moulding and millwork is one of the easiest and budget friendly ways to update a room. The variety of profiles is endless! Choose your favorite style and apply it to walls, ceiling, doors, windows, cabinetry, fireplace mantels and stairways.
New bathroom vanity – An old vanity can give your bathroom a dated look. Switch out the old vanity with a new style in a similar size. In addition, new faucets plus accessories will make it feel like a new room without doing a complete remodel.
Update cabinet hardware – This is a simple solution to changing kitchen décor. Knob and pull styles range from traditional to modern, round, square, elongated, curved and more. And there’s quite a variety of finishes ranging from brass to chrome to black.
Backsplash tile – If your kitchen and bathroom cabinetry is fine, consider creating a new backsplash. There’s a big variety of porcelain and subway tiles available that will add color and interest.
New interior doors – Same old doors since you moved in? Think about changing solid doors for full lite or 15 lite panel doors to add light into a dark room. Or perhaps a bifold door as a solution for a closet or a tiny room with little space for a door to swing open or closed.
Replacement windows – Old windows just aren’t energy efficient. How much of a draft comes in as heating bills add up during the winter months? Measure your window size for in-stock windows. Most replacement windows will fit your current window rough opening without being a special order.
Update outdoors – Installing a small terrace or a new walkway will shine with curb appeal. Also add a few perennial plants nearby to spruce up a plain yard. They’ll come back every year, so plant now and enjoy for the long run!
And those are a few simple ideas to update your home without breaking your budget. Are you ready to get started?
