If you’re looking for some do-it-yourself projects to update the look of your home, here are a few of the quickest and easiest ways to update.
-Fresh Paint: I always say this, but it is always true. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your home, whether it is inside or out.
-Replace dated fixtures: A new faucet or an updated ceiling fan will instantly make your room look new. Styles change and finishes are always changing. Currently brushed nickel and oil rubbed bronze are popular finishes.
-Paint your cabinets: Are you stuck with pickeled oak from 1991? Sand down your cabinets and try a chocolate brown, black, or cream. Add a rubbed glaze if you are feeling creative and you can instantly make your cabinets look new and even go for the popular antiqued look.
-Replace knobs and pulls: This can be in the bathroom, kitchen, or even on your furniture. This is a very simple and relatively cheap way to give yourself a change.
-Consider new flooring: This task may sound daunting, but you would be surprised how easily you can learn to lay tile, carpet, and even some of the laminate floorings. Compared to hiring someone to do it, you will save hundreds of dollars, and you will give yourself a sense of accomplishment and something to be proud of.
