1. Create walls that wow
Since you’re stuck inside staring at the walls, why not give them a new look? Adding modern trim work, crown molding and a bold coat of paint can completely change the look of a room without the expense of doing a complete renovation.
Use paint that is environmentally friendly and waterborne paint, which has virtually no fumes, dryness of the colder months can actually produce faster results.
To really add visual interest to your walls, you could go with a new or dramatic paint color or use painter’s tape to create stripes or patterns. No matter what you decide, make it fun.
- Turn dull doors into classy decor
Replacing interior doors is an affordable way to give your home an updated look versus an expensive remodel. If doors seem too much to tackle, outdated door knobs are the way to go. Updated hinges and doorknobs change out those old brass handles to black or bronze. A bold statement on a budget for any do it your selfer.
- Add a “splash” of personality to your kitchen
For homeowners looking to spice up their kitchen without spending a pretty penny, adding a backsplash is a great solution, not to mention the perfect project for a cold winter weekend.
For several hundred dollars you can completely change the look of your kitchen, as well as customize it to fit your personality.
Just a few years ago The Home Depot had only about 40 tiles to choose from. Today, the store has more than 400 different styles and sizes, ranging from classic subway tile to natural stone to metal. While adding more functionality to a kitchen, a backsplash can also help accessorize and emphasize countertops, cabinets and appliances.
- Take your bathroom from drab to fab
There’s no better time than the winter to turn your boring bathroom into a spa retreat. While replacing a faucet, re-grouting tile, or repainting are relatively easy for the do-it-yourselfer, more ambitious jobs like replacing the tub or adding tile floor might be better to leave to a professional.
Even small home improvements make big impacts. If you are a big DIY’er even better. Cheers to your space.
