When a home has been lived in for a while, it’s natural for it to show signs of wear and tear. That’s why kicking off a home improvement project can be an exciting way to make a house or apartment more enjoyable on many levels.
Here are a few home fix-up ideas that are easy to on a budget:
1. Repainting the Bathroom
It’s amazing how much a new coat of paint can do for a bathroom. Painting is an easy job, is inexpensive, and by adding a new color scheme with paint, your bathroom tiles can be instantly offset to look much more upscale and sophisticated. (You probably expected us to say custom bathroom cabinets, didn’t you?)
2. Window Replacement
Replacing the windows in a bedroom, living room, or kitchen can add a clean and refined look to a home. Window replacement can add extra interest to a room, and also give some real clean lines that play well off a new coat of paint. Window replacement can make a ho-hum room look quite sophisticated.
3. Install a New Kitchen Backsplash
A shiny new kitchen backsplash can be a great way to add luster and extra interest to a kitchen, especially if you use unusual materials like mini stainless steel subway tiles. These types of tiles often come in square sheets that allow for easy installation. These tiles are practical and also add a real sheen to a kitchen.
4. Creating Inexpensive Wainscoting
Wainscoting is a detail that adds a real sense of quaint charm to a home, and the good news is you can create it without going through a major remodel. Flat wood panels can be cut and then nailed to an entryway area for a “wainscoting” appearance, and then painted to give them a clean look that adds a feeling of antique charm.
5. Add Crown Moulding
Crown moulding is another detail that adds loads of charm to a home, but this feature doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult to install. You can find crown moulding pieces in classic styles, crafted in wood or even styrofoam. And they can be painted and easily nailed into place for a great look.
Taking on home improvement projects takes some ingenuity, but it can be fun, and incredibly rewarding when you finish all the work. So start planning your next great remodeling project today!
