5 Home Upgrades You Can Do Over the Weekend

Is your home feeling a little tired? Home renovations can be quite costly. Not to mention, they can sometimes take weeks to complete, leaving you in an uncomfortable position in the meantime. However, you don’t have to spend a fortune or leave your home in disarray for weeks at a time in order to make improvements. Sometimes all you need is a simple upgrade to freshen up the look and feel of your home.

Simple and Affordable Home Upgrades

Below, we’ve put together some quick and easy home improvement projects that you can complete this weekend. The best part about these weekend home projects is that they won’t cost you a fortune.

  1. Freshen up your paint.

Giving your walls a fresh coat of paint can really work wonders to improve the look and feel of your home. If you are eager to try something new, choose a brighter color of paint that will help breathe new life into the room. If you want to create a more open space, opt for lighter colors that will make your room look bigger. Even with prep time, painting the walls in your home is a project that you can easily tackle over the weekend.

  1. Use molding to add dimension.

If you’re bored with your plain looking walls, try adding narrow strips of molding to add dimension to any room. Molding can help create a picture frame effect in your dining or living spaces that enhances the look and feel of these important rooms. This is an easy way to upgrade your space without spending too much time or money.

  1. Add a runner to the stairs.

If you have wood stairs in your home, you can make a simple upgrade by adding a beautiful stair runner. Wood flooring is great, but it can get damaged over time, especially in a high traffic area like the stairs. A floor runner not only helps protect your wood stairs from damage, but it can also add a nice accent to your plain staircase.

  1. Bring in some storage.

Adding storage to any area of your home not only helps improve the look of the room, but it can also be useful in creating more space to store goods. Consider adding hanging shelves in the living room, coat hooks in the entry way, or a bar cart in the dining area. This helps make a plain room more interesting while also providing more places to put the things you use every day.

  1. Work on entryway landscaping.

The entryway to your home is often the first thing that visitors see, so you’ll want to make a good first impression. Adding flowers and plants around the walk way of your home can really help you boost your home’s curb appeal to create a more inviting and attractive space. Choose flowers and plants that complement the natural greenery outside your home, and make sure that you choose plants that you’ll be able to care for year-round.
