Although some remodeling projects should be left to the experts, there are ways you can give your home a fresh look without a total remodel. If you’ve tried repainting but still don’t love your space, here are a few other ideas to consider if a bathroom or kitchen remodel are out of the budget at this time. Most can be done over a weekend, require just a few tools and basic knowledge of how to use them, and won’t break the bank.
Are you dreaming about remodeling your kitchen but know it’s not quite in the budget? Look at your faucet. One of the easiest changes to make is a new faucet. You can find a variety of styles and finishes under $200 at your local home improvement store. Before you go, look at your current faucet and make note of the installation. You’ll want something that you can install in the current openings. If you currently have a separate sprayer and choose a faucet with an integrated one, ask the sales associate about a cover for the old hole. Bathroom faucets can change the appearance of your bathroom, however, you’ll need to measure the distance apart any holes are. Some faucets have just one opening while others have three.
Drawer Pulls & Door Knobs
Replacing a drawer pull or door knob requires just a screwdriver. If you have pulls, be sure to measure them before purchasing something new. If your cabinets are bare and you want to add pulls or knobs, there are many template tools that make the job a bit easier. You will need a good drill with the right size drill bit to add them.
Refresh Your Lighting
You don’t have to be an electrician to replace a light fixture. Just turn off the breaker before getting started. Lighting styles have changed dramatically over the years as have the finishes available. If your current light isn’t sufficient or just looks dated, head to a lighting store and see what they offer. You’ll find that a new fixture can remake the room. Don’t forget new bulbs for any fixtures you choose to keep. When choosing LED bulbs, you’ll want to look at the Kelvin for the color temperature of the light and the lumens for the light. This was once measured in watts but LED technology changed that.
