You might think that home-improvement projects mean large-scale, extended renovations, but the good news is: you can do it in just a few simple steps!
Below we put together a list of some simple home improvement projects you can take on. These won’t take months to complete, but they will make it look like your home was fully renovated recently in only a few weeks instead of months.
1. New Kitchen Countertops
Refreshing the countertops in your kitchen is a great project to make your kitchen look stunning.
Updating your countertops with new and more modern styles is easy to do when you use professionals to help you pick out the right style and shape for your home.
Granite & marble countertops are very popular and add a lot of beauty to your home. These stone countertops are also very resistant to scratches and damage!
2. New Flooring
Updating your flooring can take a couple of weeks, but it will do wonders for your home. It will make your house seem newer, elegant, and even more comfortable inside.
Plus, there is a wide range of prices for new wood flooring, so anyone can afford this renovation. You can invest in high-end flooring materials, like solid hardwood or artisan patterns of wood flooring, which are elegant and last for decades before wearing out!
Meanwhile, there are options on the market that won’t break the bank, like engineered hardwoods. These are very similar to real solid hardwoods, but they are about half the price and more resistant to warping and damage. The only downside is they don’t last quite as long as traditional solid hardwoods.
3. Deep Carpet Cleaning
An easy home-improvement project you can get done in a day is deep cleaning your carpets. It will remove dirt, stains, and even germs for a squeaky-clean new carpet.
Deep cleaning involves using a specialized cleaning solution in a carpet steam cleaner. Steam cleaners use hot water to penetrate your carpet fibers and then suction to pull out the water and dirt together.
4. New Coat of Paint
Repainting the inside of your home is another great project that you can do yourself. You’ll need to visit your local hardware store and choose your preferred wall color. Make sure to bring home enough cans of paint to cover your space!
One gallon of paint equates to about 360 square feet of wall space. We recommend using a paint roller to help make it easier to cover more space. Most paint rollers also come with extendable rods that easily reach corners high above you.
5. Clean Your Tile Grout
Refreshing your home can be as easy as cleaning up the grout in your tile space. This lightens up the whole room and helps the space feel fresh and clean. You can clean your tile grout with some scrub brushes and bleach; you can even use a toilet cleaner because most of them have bleach already mixed in.
This process will sanitize and break up all the dirt that has built up in your grout. Place the bleach in the grout and leave it to sit for 10 – 20 minutes.
Once enough time has passed, you can go back and scrub away all the dirt. Giving it time to soak in the grout makes it much easier to clean once you start to scrub.
Improving your home doesn’t have to be a lengthy ordeal, the way you might think. You can take on smaller projects that will each help your home feel brand new.
If you were to do all the projects above, your home would look like you spent months renovating when actually it was just a few simple tasks!
