When most people think of home renovations, they think of time-consuming projects that sometimes cost an arm and a leg. However, remodeling your home and giving it a fresh look doesn’t always have to be a big to-do. You can add some pizzazz and unique touches to your home in as little as a weekend – and best of all, these are all projects that you can easily do yourself. If you’re looking for quick and easy ways to breathe new life into your space, you’ve come to the right place. Here are a few of our favourite DIY weekend renovations.
1. Update your doors
Sometimes doors can look plain and take away from the aesthetics of a room. This is especially true if you own an older home. Naturally, when a home has outdated doors, the first thought is to replace them. But, not so fast! You can save yourself the time and cost this renovation project. With a little paint, some decorative trim and precise measuring skills, you can easily create the illusion of having brand new doors. Sound like something you’re willing to tackle this weekend? Then check out this easy to follow Hometalk tutorial.
2. Create a feature wall
A feature wall is probably the easiest way to make over any room in your home. Within one weekend, you can turn your walls from drab and washed out to bold and eye-catching. We suggest you create your feature wall using either paint or wallpaper. But, before you go to town with your hue or pattern of choice, you want to be sure you don’t go overboard with this remodelling project. Avoid over-the-top murals as they’re often hard to fix if something goes wrong. Also, extravagant paint jobs and wallpaper typically don’t add value to your home and aren’t worth the investment.
3. Replace bathroom fixtures
When it comes to the bathroom, a new fixture can go a long way. A new faucet can completely revamp the look of an outdated vanity. You can also opt to replace your showerhead if that’s the problem area. Not only can this renovation transform the look and feel of your bathroom, it could potentially save you some money down the line. You can opt to install low flow shower heads and faucets. They’re eco-friendly and will decrease your monthly water bill. Here are some easy guides to help you install a brand-new faucet and shower head.
4. Give your closet a new look
Closet renovations are a new trend that’s taking over the renovation industry! Homeowners are pulling inspiration from celebrity closets and turning what used to be a basic space for storing clothes into their own personal show rooms and walk-in retreats. The best thing about an over the top closet is that it’s pretty easy to create. All it takes is a few new storage units and a weekend of reorganizing. You can even incorporate some décor and art pieces in your closet to give it more of a personal touch.
5. Boost your curb appeal
Sprucing up your home’s exterior is another great renovation project to tackle this weekend. This can easily be done by giving your yard a little TLC. Planting a garden and investing in some lawn care can make a big impact on your home’s visual appeal.
Updating your home’s look doesn’t have to be a time-consuming process. With these simple renovations, you can create a brand-new space that you love in no-time!
