We can help you plan your next DIY project, while also helping you save money on the necessary supplies. Consider these easy DIY projects to upgrade your home:
1. Paint Your Front Door
One of the fastest and least expensive ways to add curb appeal to your home is to paint your front door. Choose a contrasting and welcoming color that draws the eye to the entrance. Before painting the door, take time to prep it by sanding and priming so the color does not fade in the sunlight.
2. Decorate Your Patio
Another easy and inexpensive way to improve your home’s appearance is to decorate your patio. You can add interest by putting an outdoor rug over the tiles, or better yet, you can paint the tiles with a large, graphic stencil.
3. Change Your Kitchen Hardware
Knobs and pulls can make your kitchen look out of style. Adding new draw pulls, knobs, and handles will update the look of your kitchen. The options come in a variety of prices, so there is something for every budget. You can save time and money by purchasing knobs and handles that fit into the pre-drilled holes in your cabinets.
4. Paint Your Fireplace
If you have a brick fireplace that doesn’t fit your aesthetic, consider white washing it. With a white-wash paint job, some of the brick continues to show through. For a unique old-world cottage look, consider the German smear that uses paint and wet mortar to create uneven faux mortar joints.
5. Put Frames Around Your Bathroom Mirrors
An easy way to upgrade your bathroom is to add frames around the mirrors. Paint the frames in your favorite color, then add a coordinating shower curtain and accessories.
6. Install a Sliding Barn Door
Sliding barn doors creates more space in a small room. You won’t have to worry about a door swinging open. Instead, you add rollers to the top and bottom of the wall. Consider adding a shiplap to an accent wall to create a farmhouse style.
7. Add Shelves to Your Kitchen
Cabinets are a perfect tool to store your kitchen items, but if you have dishes and cups worthy of displaying, add shelves to store and show off your collection.
8. Install Window Flower Boxes
Another lovely way to improve your curb appeal is by installing window flower boxes. They are easy to build and add to the lower level of your home.
9. Add Feet to Your Cabinets
You can upgrade the look of your bottom cabinets by adding bun feet to the corners. The small feet will make your cabinets look custom. You’ll have to paint or stain them to match your cabinets.
10. Change Your Shower Head
Adding a luxurious showerhead probably won’t increase the value of your home, but it will improve your showering experience. Consider adding a large rain-style shower head for a posh daily experience.
