The Easiest Home Remodeling Projects For A Quick Change

March 08, 2024

Do you ever get the itch to change things up with a home remodel? What if you don’t have the time or resources to tear up your kitchen or bathroom? If a large project isn’t possible right now, choose a quick and easy one that will still make a big impact. Home improvements like updated window treatments, new storage solutions, and more can make a room feel fresh and more functional. So keep this list handy for the next time you feel like making a change.

Upgrade Your Storage and Organizing Spaces

Have your storage needs changed over the years? If you can’t commit to remodeling projects like ripping out a closet interior or kitchen cabinets, you can still revamp these things with new organizing solutions. Peruse the internet for the latest organization hacks and systems. Some new dividers, racks, shelving, hooks, baskets, or similar items might be all it takes to make cabinets or closets look and work better.

Update Your Window Treatments With A New Custom Style

Windows always stand out in a room, so keep yours looking beautiful with the right window treatments. You have lots of styles, colors, and materials to choose from. Add some color with brightly-hued fabric shades, or bring in a touch of natural beauty with wood window treatments.

Window treatments do more than embellish your windows. They can also make a room more functional and help you control lighting. For instance, versatile plantation shutters let you effortlessly switch between different light levels depending on the mood or activities you have planned for a room. Open them for full light when you want a bright space for playing or working, and tilt down or close the louvers to keep the sun out of your eyes when watching movies. Have a chilly room? Energy-efficient Polywood® shutters help keep drafts at bay.

Install Beautiful Moulding In Plain Rooms

Beautiful details like crown moulding and new baseboards can add a special touch to dull rooms. If your home doesn’t have these features, or you don’t love the existing moulding, this is a simple remodeling project. Most homeowners can accomplish it themselves or hire a contractor without going over budget. Get creative with moulding. Paint it a different color from walls or ceilings. Use it to frame a large mirror or ceiling light fixture. Add Roman shades for extra depth.

Switch Out Old Light Fixtures

And speaking of light fixtures—old light fixtures can make decor look dated. Give your home a fresh look by replacing the lighting with updated fixtures in colors, finishes, and styles that suit your tastes. You can replace a dusty old chandelier with a modern, minimalist fixture. Or, maybe your current fixture is boring and could be improved with a boho chic shade. Just remember to turn off the electricity if you’re doing any electrical work yourself!

While you’re at it, replace plain light switch plates with decorative ones and consider other light sources. A new trendy lamp or light-diffusing window treatments can also help brighten a space.
