Sometimes, a full overhaul just isn’t in the budget when you’re looking to do some upgrading around your home. A complete room remodel can cost a small fortune and sometimes take longer than anticipated. With that in mind, it’s important to remember that even small changes can make a big impact and they don’t have to cost you much time or money. Take a look at these 5 clever renovating ideas for your home:

  1. Laundry room remodel – Probably one of the smallest rooms, the laundry room can quickly become one of the most disorganized places in your home – a catchall room for dirty clothes with a steady rotation of laundry being streamed through.  Switch things up and try a small remodel. Paint the walls, add shelving and include matching bins for all your cleaning supplies. Organize and refresh the space to create a place to looks great. 
  2. D.I.Y. Wainscoting – For some, the thought of DIY brings fear into their heart. But fear not! This is a relatively easy project that can completely transform a room as well add value! You can find a great tutorial here. 
  3. Paint the floor & ceiling – Do you have ugly linoleum in a room that you hate but aren’t quite ready to tear up? Try painting over it. Although it sounds a bit unconventional, it’s a temporary fix that can yield lasting results. In addition, don’t forget to look up. If you have neutral colored walls but don’t want to repaint all four, create a statement and try a bolder color on the ceiling. 
  4. Air vents – This is one of those projects that requires a minimal amount of labor but still yields a big impact. Replace your home’s standard air vents with fancier options. Or, if you’re really looking to save some money, simply repaint them. 
  5. Kitchen backsplash – Create a beautiful focal point in your home’s kitchen by installing a new or upgraded backsplash. The most difficult step will be selecting from so many options but keep in mind there are self-adhesive versions available that can make your job even easier.
