Easy Home Improvement Tasks That Will Transform Your House

Whether you just bought a new home, or have owned your current home for a while, you’re probably excited about making it your own, or just making updates. Making changes doesn’t have to be hard, and it makes all the difference in transforming a house into a home. If you’re looking to transform the feel of your house, try these easy home improvement tasks!

1. Painting Cabinetry

Renovating your kitchen and bathrooms can be a huge expense, but there’s an easier, more affordable way to refresh these areas of your home: painting the cabinetry. Instead of buying new, expensive cabinets, paint the cabinets that are already there, and your space will feel brand new. 

2. Updating Hardware & Fixtures

Updating your home’s hardware is another great way to transform any space. Want a modern look? Replace silver light fixtures, door knobs, and cabinet handles with matte black, shiny rose gold, or even gloss white. These small accents can make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of your home.

3. Increasing Curb Appeal

The front of your home is the first thing people will see when they visit, so increasing your curb appeal is never a bad option! There are tons of simple things you can do to increase the curb appeal of your home. Pressure washing your siding will keep your home looking clean and new. Adding window boxes full of flowers, or flower beds along the front porch will give your home some personality. Add a pop of color to your home by painting the front door a deep red, pale blue, forest green, or light yellow. Lastly, add a couple rocking chairs or another small seating area to really make it feel homey. 

4. Landscaping

If your yard needs some pizazz as well, give it some! Have fun in your yard by adding flower beds, accenting sidewalks and porches with mulch or pebbles, or even add an outdoor fire pit to your backyard. If you’re often on your back porch at night, hosting friends and family or just enjoying the singing crickets, add some lighting to your backyard.

5. Adding Accent Walls

Looking to get a little more creative inside your home? Add an accent wall to any room! Accent walls can be created from peel and stick tile, paint, wood, or shiplap. While this home improvement task may take some time, these upgrades are well worth it for resale value and for making your home feel more customized to your style.

6. Painting Tile

Have outdated or worn tile in your kitchen or bathroom? Give it an upgrade by painting it! There are tons of great tile paints available, and doing this is much more affordable than replacing the tile entirely. You can paint over the whole tile, or you can use a stencil to paint a design on the tile for a custom look. 

7. Adding Curtains

If you’ve put out all your furniture and decor, but still feel like you’re missing something, you may need to add curtains to your space! Curtains can transform your home from boring and simple to elegant and comforting. While they add so much to the look of your home, they also add to the feel of your home by blocking out unwanted heat from sunlight during the hot summer months. That’s a win-win!

8. Laying Rugs

Another important decorative aspect to transform the look and feel of your home is rugs. Rugs can make all the difference in making a space feel fully connected. They can also set boundaries between spaces if need be. Rugs are also functional in that they help keep furniture from sliding around, they protect your floors, and they reduce noise. Rugs come in so many different shapes and sizes, and with so many beautiful designs, there are rugs that everyone will love!

9. Investing In Air Purification

One of the best ways to improve your home is to improve the quality of air you’re breathing inside it. The best way to do this is with an air purification system. Air purifiers can eliminate allergens, bacteria, and viruses from your home with ease. This upgrade is as simple as calling your local HVAC company and having them install one of these systems in your existing ductwork.
