Home Renovations You Can Do In a Weekend

Do you want to make some changes in your home, but never seem to have the time? We know you are busy, so we compiled a list of our favorite renovations that can be done in a single weekend! Now you can make some substantial changes in your home without the hassle of a large renovation.

1) Organize Clutter Problem Areas
Under the sink or down in the basement, every home has a place that is susceptible to clutter. Spend some time this weekend reorganizing your home to help eliminate the clutter issues. It might be as simple as adding in a bookshelf or purchasing plastic storage bins to give everything a place to go. You’ll never know until you try.

2) Redecorate Your Entry Way
Does the entry to your home look a bit neglected? This weekend is the perfect time to give it a pick-me-up. Give the front door a fresh coat of paint, brush off any dirt and debris from the walkway, and put out some potted plants or seasonal decorations. A little TLC goes a long way!

3) Update Light Fixtures
Have you been putting off replacing that old ceiling fan in the family room? This weekend is the perfect time to make the switch! From start to finish, this project shouldn’t take more than a couple hours at most. You’ll be done and able to enjoy the new fixture before you even know it.

4) Change Out Bathroom Hardware
Want to change up the look of your bathroom but can’t afford a full-blown renovation right now? Replacing your old bathroom fixtures is a great way to transform your bathroom. Change everything from the sink faucet to the shower head. The shiny new fixtures will be a welcome addition to your bathroom.

5) Add Molding
Bring your home to the next level by adding molding to a few rooms. Molding is a great finishing touch to any space and adds character to your home. Molding is inexpensive and easy to install. In a weekend, you can completely transform the look of your home.

6) Paint or Add Wallpaper
One of the easiest ways to have a huge impact on the look of your home is to change the paint or wallpaper! If you are looking for a dramatic change that is inexpensive and easy to do, paint is the perfect solution for you. Better get those brushes ready!

7) Replace Kitchen Pulls and Knobs
Want a change in the kitchen but don’t know where to start? Changing out the hardware on your cabinets can completely change the look of them. It’s a small and quick change that goes a long way.

8) Replace Your Bed Covers
Changing out the comforter in your bedroom is so simple, but really can change the feel of a space. The heart of a bedroom is the bed, so what better place to start?

9) Change out the Curtains
Have you had the same curtains up since you moved in? Maybe it’s time to change things up. New curtains can be inexpensive and incredibly easy to change out. Sometimes it’s the small changes that have the biggest impact.

10) Reorganize Your Closets or Pantry
When was the last time you cleaned out your closet or pantry? If it’s been bothering, you for a while and you still haven’t gotten around to doing it. This weekend is the perfect time to take some time and get everything back in line. I can bet you’ll be glad you did.

Make this weekend count, don’t waste it!
