Quick & Easy Home Renovation Ideas You Can Actually Do Yourself

If you find yourself with some extra time on your hands, why not consider using it productively by tackling some DIY home improvement projects around your house?

Get your tools ready, and let’s give your home some fresh new improvements. Here are some quick and easy do-it-yourself (DIY) home renovation ideas to give your space a special look—no contractor required.

Paint Your Walls

If you’re on a budget but still want to give your home a revitalised interior design, one of the most affordable and easiest techniques to do is to paint your walls. Painting the walls of your living room, bedroom, and other parts of your home can help eliminate dirt, cover stains, or replace fading wallpaper and give your home a fresh and clean atmosphere. 

When choosing the right colour, start by thinking about the mood you want to create and selecting a paint colour that aligns with the principles of colour psychology to help achieve your desired result. For example, yellow paints can make small kitchens look bigger and make people feel calm and happy. Experts also suggest painting the living room blue. When paired with white hues, blue paint colour brings a vibe that’s cool and relaxing. 

If you’re not sure which colour to choose, pick an area that’s quick to paint, such as your powder room, bathroom, or accent wall. Painting small areas first allows you to see the results sooner and make adjustments accordingly until you’re satisfied.  

Tweak Your Existing Cabinetry

Another home improvement idea is to update your existing cabinetry. You might want to repaint your drawers and bookcases a new shade, replace door handles and other cabinet hardware, or add undercabinet lighting to your kitchen cabinets; all these quick and easy improvements can give your cabinet a huge makeover!

Upgrade Your Flooring

Installing new wood or tile floors to refresh your interior flooring may require a significant amount of time and, of course, money. If you wish to revitalise your floors while sticking to a budget, rolling out rugs and carpets can be an instant option. A wide range of antimicrobial carpets are available on the market nowadays, which effectively inhibit the growth of fungi, bacteria, and dust mites within the carpet fibres.

In outdoor areas of your home, artificial grass can add vibrancy to your surroundings. Mimicking the appearance of natural grass, artificial grass is resistant to fading and can maintain its aesthetic appeal for 10 to 15 years.

Replace Old Caulk

Replacing old caulk is an easy DIY bathroom remodelling hack to maintain the freshness of your bathroom and prevent the growth of mildew. 

Before applying new caulk around your bathtub, shower, or sink, it is necessary to remove the old caulk. New caulk won’t adhere to old caulk, so leaving the old caulk in place can prevent the formation of a watertight seal, potentially allowing moisture to penetrate areas where it's unwanted

Install Ceiling Fans

Ceiling fans are an appealing option for your home, especially if you’re aiming to save more money on electricity bills. Ceiling fans reduce air conditioning costs and lower heating expenses by circulating warm air away from the ceiling.

When searching for the right ceiling fan, consider the height of the ceiling, the type of blades (wood, plastic, or metal), and the fan motor.  

Customise Storage Areas

Customise Storage Areas

Besides having new shelving, it may be a good idea to create custom storage in different spaces in your home. This will allow you to keep seasonal items such as decorations and curtains, old books, mementos, and blankets.

The best area at home to create custom storage is under the stairs if possible, but you can also opt for a headboard with storage in your bedroom or go for a bed frame with drawers.

Update The Light fixture

Another do-it-yourself home improvement idea is to enhance your home’s light fixtures. You can simply swap all the old light bulbs with new LED lights to improve illumination and energy efficiency. But before swapping out any old bulbs, first assess whether or not your fixtures are worth keeping or if a light fixture refresh would suit the look and function of your space. 

You can also consider adding a chandelier with several pendants to give your space a game-changing focal point.

Change Your Kitchen’s Backsplash

Replace your kitchen’s old backsplash with trendy kitchen backsplash,  one that adds visual interest. With a variety of options such as glass, stone, ceramic, or beadboard, you can choose the perfect material that’s also right for your budget. 

By trying out some of  the ideas above, you could prove that sometimes the smallest and simplest change in your home can make a huge impact. Have a go at one or more of these easy home renovation projects and see how easy it is to refresh the look and functionality of your home without spending much!
