Ready for a DIY project?
Are you looking to spruce up your humble abode but you are limited by budget, time and a handy person? Do not worry, you are not alone!! If you have the proper tools and equipment there are simple things you can change in your home that will make a big difference. Not only will these new changes make your home feel new but they will also add curb appeal if you decide to sell your home.
Here are our top five DIY changes that you can do this weekend:
1) Change The Pulls (Cabinet Hardware)
This is a simple and efficient way to make a dramatic difference in your home. If you have old brass pulls or if you have small nickel pulls you can update to larger statement hardware or you can go with timeless and elegant clear knobs. The clear or crystal hardware also matches everything. This is the simplest DIY project you can tackle. Typically, all you need is a screwdriver.
2) Add Light Dimmers
If you want to add some mode lighting or change the ambience in your home, add dimmers. Light dimmers can drastically change the mode and tone of your home. Dimmers are also a very affordable way to change the feel of your kitchen, dining room and bedroom.
3) Update Fixtures
If you want to change the feeling and update your bathrooms and kitchens – change the fixtures. Your kitchen could probably use a new sink or a new faucet. Your bathroom might need a new sink, faucet and shower head as well. These items might be the most expensive on this list so be sure to plan your budget and stick to it.
4) Create A Statement Wall
A statement wall is a great way to add personality to your home. It’s also a great way to add a pop of color. Statement walls can include wall paper, large art pieces, a bright paint color or a drawing. Whatever you decide to do for your statement wall, be sure it is classic and timeless so you don’t want to change it again in a few months. Be sure to plan this DIY project thoroughly as this might be the item that takes the most time.
5) Repurpose Your Furniture
If your furniture is looking old, paint it. Or, if you have an amazingly comfy piece of furniture that you want but it looks old drabby, recover it. Or, go back to step one and add new pulls to the furniture and paint it.
