Spring is the season of rebirth and it’s the perfect time to refresh different parts of your home. Even small home projects can make a big impact, so it’s okay if you’re not interested in taking something larger. Take the time to think about the time you want to devote to your home projects. Here are some of the most common home projects homeowners like to tackle come springtime!
When updating your current motif, there are a lot of opportunities right on your staircase. Repaint the walls, add some wallpaper, or hang up your favorite art pieces. If you have extra space, create a reading nook by a staircase window.
Don’t forget the walls that line your stairs. You can add some flair with a variety of accents that reflect your overall décor, and as a bonus, you don’t always need to add family pictures if you’d rather not. Pick a color palette that works and build your designs from those colors. What’s great about this is that you can choose whimsy, elegance, or anything in between that works for you.
Bathroom renovations are a typical project, but it takes more time depending on your idea of renovation. You can update your bathroom with a few simple updates, or you can choose a more in-depth change, but if you do, plan accordingly. Consider a cabinet replacement for a simple yet striking update and replace the top with water-resistant material like marble. You can also add patterned wallpaper over a single weekend to give a fresh feel to your bathroom. A simple addition like a frame around your bathroom mirror can also refresh the look.
Changing Up the Doors
The front door is the first thing people see before they enter your home. You can give your home a fresh update with a pop of color by painting the door with a new color or applying a fresh coat that matches the existing color. Another door that often gets forgotten is the garage door. You can do a simple update there, too, by adding new handles and hinge accents to your garage door. Adding simple changes can make your garage door look brand new and give it an upscale look.
Don’t forget the doors on the inside as you scout around your home looking for things to update. Installing a sliding barn door adds a functional and aesthetic appeal to a closet, office, pantry, or anywhere else you would consider installing it.
Swap cabinet doors with glass and instantly update your kitchen towards a minimalist feel. Change the hardware on your cabinets and drawers for a simple update you can do in just a couple of hours. Focusing on cabinetry is a great way to update your kitchen, so consider painting your cabinets for a new look. To give your cabinets an even more upscale feel, you can add feet to the bottom of the cabinets painted to match. Decorative crown molding added to the top can also make a vast improvement to your existing cabinets.
Updating your outdoor area to a place you can enjoy is a fantastic option for a weekend project. Simple home projects for your outdoor space include stenciling the patio with weather-resistant paint to create a tiled look on a concrete pad or hanging string lights for a fairy garden feel. Other ideas you can do include updating patio furniture with outdoor wicker or rattan furniture. A pergola or gazebo can add a nice touch, too, especially if you also add some colorful accent pieces like rugs or pillows.
Simple Upgrades Can Transform
Updating your home doesn’t have to be a long and drawn-out process when there are so many options that only take a few days or less. The aesthetic appeal goes up, you’re happy, and you don’t have to wait for weeks to see the result.
