Weekend Home Improvement Projects
Many home improvement projects are easy and inexpensive and can be completed on a weekend. Here are a few simple projects you might want to add to your to-do list:
Update your hardware. Adding new, up-to-date hardware to cabinets and drawers gives them a fresh, new look. You can even go for a little extra impact and replace faucets, light switch covers, and interior doorknobs.
Add a ceiling fan. A ceiling fan can pay for itself by creating less need for air conditioning and making the room more comfortable.
Replace window treatments. This is one of the easiest ways to add a completely new look to a room. Shop around for designs that reflect your personal taste and you will find your living spaces to feel much more like home.
Add garage storage. Explore using shelving, hooks, and hangers to provide more storage space. Removing things like shovels, rakes, and sports equipment off the floor can make it easier to navigate throughout your garage and find what you’re looking for.
Install molding. Crown molding adds an elegant touch to any room, and is a feature that you’ll find to be popular among buyers when it comes time to resale.
Dress up the front door. Your home’s entrance is the first thing people see when they come to your home, so make it stand out! Adding a coat of fresh paint to your front door, touching up the landscaping, and finishing with some new door hardware plus a welcome mat can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal.
Replace lamp shades. Giving your lamp a face-lift with a new shade is a quick and easy way to redecorate. It can be fun to explore different styles and colors to find the designs that best represent your desired aesthetic.
Weekends are never long enough, but you may be surprised at just how much you can accomplish in a few short days, and just how big of an impact all those little projects can make on your home!
