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.ThinkstockPhotos-78319014

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.

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!

  1. Changing your window treatments seems small but it can make a major difference in the look of your room.

  2. I own a roofing company and a lot of times people have their sights set on a large project, like a roof replacement, or siding replacement, but their budget is set on something smaller. I always tell them that window treatments are a great way to add a lot of value especially when you are looking to sell a home. Great article.
