You don’t have to spend all your money or time in order to make your house a stylish, more comfortable place to be. Here are just a few mini home makeover ideas that you can use to improve the look and feel of your home:
- Paint your front door.
If the paint on your front door is damaged, cracked, or peeling, it’s time for a fresh coat! Whether you choose the same color or opt to add a pop of bright color, painting the front door can really help improve the look and feel of your home.
- Add flowers to the walkway.
Flowers and plants in the entryway can help create a more welcoming environment. Plant your favorites along the front walkway to boost your home’s curb appeal and ensure that your front entryway is inviting to guests.
- Get a stair runner.
If you have wood stairs in your home, a stair runner can be a great option for helping you protect the flooring while also adding a fun and colorful accent. Choose a floor runner made of a material that is durable yet attractive, and choose colors that tie the rest of the room together.
- Introduce more storage.
For many homeowners, storage space is often hard to come by. Adding floating shelves, small bookcases, and baskets will allow you to create more space for storage while freshening up the look of your home.
- Update your trim work.
You don’t necessarily have to install brand new trim work throughout your home. However, you can make some improvements by replacing any missing or damaged molding. Sometimes just a fresh coat of paint can breathe new life into your trim.
- Replace an old lighting fixture.
Have an old lighting fixture that just doesn’t go with the room? Replace it with a more attractive option. To be safe, make sure that you turn off the power at the breaker before getting started with this project.
- Opt for new cabinet hardware.
Replacing your kitchen and bathroom cabinets can be expensive. However, if you want to make a change to your cabinets without breaking the bank, you can give them a mini makeover with new hardware. Find handles and door pulls that match your kitchen or bathroom appliances to help create balance within the room.
- Install a new faucet.
A new faucet can really help you improve the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Opt for a more elegant configuration to enhance the space. Just make sure that the faucet matches your sink and complements the hardware on your kitchen or bathroom cabinets.
- Use paint stencils to add beautiful accents.
Tired of looking at plain walls? Why not spice them up a little bit with some paint stencils. You can find these stencils at any craft store or even print them for free online. The best part is that paint stencils are highly customizable, allowing you to create a look that’s all your own. Whether you go for a chic accent wall in the living room or a wacky pattern in the kids room, there are a ton of different looks you can create with paint stencils.
- Hang a medicine cabinet.
Putting a new medicine cabinet in the bathroom not only allows you to add more storage space but also gives you the opportunity to show off your style. For a more eclectic look, find a vintage-inspired piece, or for a more chic and minimalist vibe, you can use a simple mirrored medicine cabinet.
