If you own a home, you know that upkeep and maintenance are important. However, not every project has to be time-consuming or costly. If you want to make updates but have limited time to do so, make room in this weekend’s schedule or set aside a couple of days. Here are a few weekend home improvement projects you can complete in no time.
Home Improvement: Paint the Front Door This Weekend
Painting the front door is a quick, easy, and inexpensive way to make your home feel more welcoming. Choose a bold shade that compliments the color and style of your home. Purchase quality paint, primer, brushes, and paint rollers for the job. You’ll boost curb appeal and make your entryway more attractive.
Install New House Numbers
House numbers help visitors and delivery drivers find your home for the first time and are necessary for emergency vehicles in case of an accident or fire. If it’s been a while since you installed new house numbers, it only takes a few minutes to make the update.
House numbers should be bold and visible from the street. Display them on the side of your house or on or above the garage door if it faces the road. New, stylish numbers add character to your home.
Weekend Home Improvement Projects for Your Bathroom
It doesn’t take a lot of money or a lot of time to upgrade your bathroom. For between $45 – $80, install a waterfall showerhead to enjoy a water-saving shower without losing any water pressure.
Update the cabinet handles and drawer pulls. Add newer, stylish hardware to modernize your bathroom and, because the bathroom usually only has a few pulls and handles, you can spend a bit more on high-end pieces. If your bathroom has a plain, hollow-core door, improve the door by adding trim and a new decorative doorknob.
Paint an Accent Wall
Choose a wall to create a focal point in the dining room, living room, or bedroom. Use a paint color that makes a statement. If you know the dimensions of the wall, the paint professional at your local home improvement store can help calculate the amount of paint you’ll need and recommend the right paint for the job.
Consider using metallic or textured paint for your living room wall and chalkboard paint for a kid’s room. Paint wide stripes for a bold design. As an alternative to painting, you can even cover an accent wall with wallpaper, wood panels, or fabric.
