Simple Home Reno Tips For 2022
Looking for easy home renovation projects to tackle around the house? From updating interior paint colours to adding a tiled backsplash in your kitchen, these 21 affordable home makeover ideas can help you create a brand new look in your home on a budget!
Tired of the boring white walls in your home? It's time for a paint upgrade! What paint colour should you choose? You could go with trendy interior colours like pale pink, turquoise, or olive green. Or you could use the colour of existing furniture to determine a complementary colour that brings balance to the room. Don't want to go big with paint? You can always add a simple accent wall for a smaller pop of colour!
Ditch the Paint for Wallpaper
If you don't want to paint your walls, make a statement with wallpaper! Consider adding bold patterned wallpaper featuring palm leaves, floral motifs, or geometric patterns to a family room, home office, or kids room. Or stick with solid colors and more neutral patterns for a more subtle home improvement update. Looking for a DIY option? Make your own wallpaper by using stencils and your favorite colors!
Include Unique Wall Paneling
An easy and budget-friendly home improvement idea is to upgrade your walls with paneling! Create a rustic look in your kitchen or bathroom by installing shiplap or wooden planks on walls. Or give bedroom, hallway, and living room walls a makeover with wainscoting, board and batten, or beadboard!
Add Crown Molding to Walls
Upgrade the look of a plain room by adding crown molding to cover the gap between the walls and ceilings! White crown molding paired with a neutral paint color will give your room a finished look. You can paint or stain crown molding or even use peel-and-stick crown molding for a budget-friendly option!
Spruce Up the Ceiling
Don't forget about improving your ceiling! There are plenty of options for this DIY home interior upgrade. You could add faux wood beams with bead-board or shiplap for a farmhouse-style look in a kitchen or dining room. You could go with surface-mount tile or tin for a more retro feel in a bathroom. Or you can simply paint ceilings with an accent color to create contrast and depth in a bedroom!
Go with New Flooring
One way to spruce up your home on a budget is to install new floors. For this home makeover idea, think about using sheet vinyl flooring, laminate flooring, or ceramic tile. Sheet vinyl flooring is durable and water-resistant. If you want a look that resembles hardwood, use laminate flooring, which doesn't fade from exposure to the sun. Or if you want flooring that's easy to clean, opt for more traditional tile floors!
Swap Out Light Fixtures
Give the rooms of your home a cool new look with upgraded lighting! Add a sparkly chandelier to your dining room or hang industrial-style pendant lights over your kitchen island. Incorporate recessed ceiling lights over your shower or wall sconces around the vanity in your bathroom. Want to put your creative skills to the test? Try designing your own DIY light fixture like mason jar pendant lights or repurposed glass bottle lamps!
