Upgrading your home doesn’t have to mean spending thousands of dollars, knocking out walls, and living in chaos for months on end. There are plenty of quick and easy ways to spruce up your home and bring it up to date. Whether you are a do-it-yourselfer looking for a new project to conquer or you are just wanting an upgrade on a tight timeline, these easy home improvement ideas will add a wow factor to your home and perfect for a weekend project!

1. Replace Your Faucets

Looking for a quick way to bring your kitchen up to date? Start by replacing the kitchen faucet. This is an easy project that can be done in under an hour. There are so many styles to choose from and a modern faucet is a great way to inject new life into your existing space. Just be sure to select a configuration that matches your sink, unless you plan to replace the sink as well. If you are looking to spruce up your bathrooms, you might also consider replacing your sink faucets and even your shower head in your bathrooms. You should be able to replace all of the faucets in your home in just one weekend.

2. Update Light Fixtures

Dress up your dining room with a bold chandelier or jazz up the kitchen island with some fun new pendant lights. Light fixtures are one of the fastest and easiest ways to change the look of a room, and it’s definitely a project you can do yourself. Whether you are looking for a new look in your eating space or you want to upgrade your bathroom fixtures to something more modern, hanging a new light fixture is a quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive project that can be done in a matter of hours.

3. Paint or Wallpaper a Room

A fresh coat of paint can do wonders for your space. Brighten up any room in your home by painting it. Depending on the size of your rooms, you can possibly even paint more than one room in a weekend. You can also add a pop of color or an interesting design to any room by applying wall[paper. This is an easy way to change the look of a bathroom, kitchen, living room, or dining room in a weekend or less.

4. Install New Cabinet Hardware

Transform the look of your kitchen by replacing factory-issue handles and pulls with more modern hardware that reflects your personal taste. These days it’s easy to find cabinet hardware available to suit any style. Simple metallic hardware is neutral enough to match just about any paint or cabinet color. For something a bit bolder, try shopping at an antique shop for a unique, eclectic look.

5. Add Beadboard

Beadboard is a great way to add texture to any room and this traditional design idea is easy to install. Consider adding beadboard to your bathroom walls or even on the bottom half of your dining room or kitchen to create a more sophisticated design. Available in both narrow and wide planks, beadboard will make any space more visually appealing.

6. Paint Your Front Door

A cheery front door can make the entrance to your home warm and inviting. Try painting your front door to give your home’s exterior a fresh look. Your front door is the focal point of your home, so you can instantly boost your curb appeal by dressing up your door with fresh paint and new hardware. Once you’re done, add a wreath for the perfect decorative touch.

7. Patch Holes in Walls

Are you tired of looking at those holes in your wall where you rearranged your artwork? Whether you have small holes leftover where something once hung or you just have little dings here and there throughout your home, it may be time to patch up those little imperfections. All you need is a putty knife and some resurfacing compound and you can easily repair minor wall damage. Once the patch is dry, simply paint over it and your walls will look brand new.

8. Replace Ceiling Fans

You can improve lighting, ventilation, and the style of the room by replacing your old ceiling fans with something new and modern. It’s time to do away with those old brass ceiling fans that squeak and rattle and install a sleek, modern fan that is both quiet and stylish. Ceiling fans are less than $200 and can be installed in under an hour.
