Whether you plan on reselling your home or just want to spruce it up for your own pleasure, a thoughtful renovation can completely transform an entire place’s feel. While some renovations can be costly, others may just require a few tools and a willingness to learn. Today, we explore some home renovations you can do yourself.
1. Refinish Your Cabinets
Over time, your cabinets may begin to feel a touch vintage—and not in the way you may like. Additionally, you may eventually furnish the room in a way that doesn’t quite match up with them. A simple fix would be refinishing them, as this can change their tone and bring them back to life.
2. Install Tile
Tile is easy to install, and it can be used in various areas in one’s home. Floors and backsplashes are both among the various places that can be spruced up with some new tile. As long as you know how to line the pieces upright, this is a task that’s both simple and aesthetically attractive.
3. Lay New Carpet
Maybe your stairs are looking a bit drab, or your living room carpet is beyond the point of no return. Luckily, carpet installation can be a fairly simple DIY project. Some tools, most commonly pneumatic nail guns, may seem intimating at first. But once you understand how they work, you’ll find carpet installation a breeze.
4. Replace Crown Molding
Crown molding is a home feature that’s generally affordable, and it adds an immediate air of elegance to a room. You can purchase unfinished molding and paint or finish it according to your taste. Once you’ve customized it, the actual installation process is fairly simple.
5. Replace Your Hardware
Modern hardware is a must in homes today, and switching yours out will immediately make your home feel more modern. Set aside a budget to replace faucets, knobs, and even outlet switches. This is something that we especially recommend if you plan on selling your home.
