You don’t have to spend a fortune to beautify your home; reimagining your interior design scheme is as simple as making a few cosmetic changes. Below you’ll find five DIY home renovation ideas that are affordable and simple.

Install A Backsplash in The Kitchen

While it protects your walls from splatters, a backsplash also adds visual interest to one of the busiest areas of your home. There are many types of backsplashes you can install, such as ceramic tile, glass, and stainless steel. For those who are on a time crunch, you can also make backsplashes using peel-and-stick tile sheets.

Panel Your Doors

A flat, plain door doesn’t necessarily add interest to your home. But in just a few hours, you can completely transform they look by paneling them. Before starting, just be sure that you repair your door if it’s damaged in any way. Then, you can apply beadboard panels with construction glue and nails, or you can paint faux panels. This small change makes a huge difference.

Plank the Walls

A planked wall can become a focal point in any room. Typically, a project like this can use up more time and money than you have available. However, there is an easy and inexpensive way to create wall planking. All you need is plywood, sandpaper, and spacers; then, you can nail the boards to the wall. You can also purchase peel-and-stick wall planks. Planked walls look great in bedrooms, mudrooms, and even nurseries.

Replace Bathroom Fixtures

If you want to redesign your space without making too many changes, consider swapping out the fixtures. Switching out a faucet, a tub fixture, or cabinet handles is pretty straightforward—and you won’t have to worry about demolition. Whether you prefer brass, bronze, chrome, or nickel, your new fixtures are sure to enhance the space.

Update Old Floors

Many people overlook their floors when the truth is that they make a significant impact on the look and feel of your home. Luckily, you can update your old flooring without the help of experts. Whether you decide to lay down vinyl flooring, tile a floor, or paint stencils on a wood floor, the opportunities are endless. Be sure to cover your floors with Ramboard beforehand to them during renovations. This protection will keep your hardwood or tile dust- and paint-free.
