You fell in love with your home when you purchased it. Years have gone by and you still love the house but it’s in need of a few upgrades. Before you grab your power tools and paintbrush, let us stop you right there.
Not all home renovation projects yield a high ROI (return on investment). Some upgrades are more profitable than others. Before you decide what home remodeling project you want to jump into, first consider its ROI and then consider what projects will bring you the most happiness.
In the guide below, we’ll discuss several DIY renovation projects that you can try today!
Paint the Cabinets
You’re tired of your old kitchen cabinets. They’re outdated and ready for a change. Before you choose to rip the old cabinets out and replace them with new ones, stop and inspect their current condition.
If the cabinets are still in good condition and are simply outdated, then you can remove the doors and drawers. Sand them down if wood and repaint them. Switch out the old hardware for new and improved hardware and then put them back together.
You’ll have brand new cabinets for half the price!
Paint the Front Door
Is your home lacking curb appeal? You can boost the curb appeal in an easy and inexpensive way by doing a few things. Cleaning up the yard, mowing the lawn, and trimming the trees are just the start.
Then, repaint the front door. Change it from a basic white color to a bold, fun, and inviting color. Be sure the color you choose goes well with the paint on the exterior of the house.
Then, to tie everything together, hang a seasonal wreath.
Apply Peel-and-Stick Flooring
Let’s say the flooring in your home is outdated. Maybe you’re stuck looking at old vinyl flooring in the bathrooms or ugly tile in the kitchen. You know just how expensive it is to install new hardwood floors.
Instead, apply peel-and-stick flooring to your floors. To ensure you can easily peel them off when you’re ready for another change, lay down painter’s tape on the floor first. Then, peel and stick your new floors down!
You can cut pieces as needed to guarantee they fit the room correctly. They’ll look great and no one will even notice they’re peel-and-stick floors.
Transform the Garage
Are you currently not getting much use out of your garage? Don’t let the space go to waste. Transform the garage by coating the floors to create a beautiful extension of your home.
