Easy Home Remodeling and Renovation Ideas

Home improvements come in many shapes and sizes, whether it’s constructing a new deck or installing a stylish door handle. Every homeowner knows that small details add up, and so does the cost of renovating a room. Looking to give your home a new look with a small budget? Here are some easy home remodeling and renovation ideas that won’t break the bank:

Add Some Color

Paint your home, or just part of it. Either way, a little splash of color or a fresh, polished coat can leave your home looking cleaner and brighter than it was. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, start with the kitchen. Paint the cabinets and add a colorful backsplash to the kitchen to protect walls and add some character to your culinary space.


Install crown molding and trimwork throughout your home to accessorize walls, doors, windows, and mirrors. You can also boost your home’s curb appeal by framing the front door with millwork and painting the door a bold color. A brightly painted door is an eye-catching focal point indoors and out, and millwork adds a touch of charm.

Update Fixtures

Installing new door hardware, lights, towel racks, and faucets can make a world of difference if you are on a limited budget. Change the lampshades or add pendant, sconce, or chandelier fixtures for a whimsical look. Install a gooseneck faucet for your kitchen sink to make an elegant statement. It will also give you more room to wash dishes or fill tall pots with water.

Go Green

Install low-flow toilets and showerheads in the bathroom and energy efficient appliances throughout your home. Upgrade to LEDs if you are still burning incandescent light bulbs. This way, you can invest in future savings. Energy efficient upgrades offer long-term value and peace of mind in the present.


Old, cracked, and stained caulk can leave your bathroom looking grimy, no matter how much you clean. Reapply straight, clean lines of caulk around the tub and sink in your bathroom. You can purchase caulk at your local home improvement or hardware store for around six dollars.

Be Creative

Get creative with storage. Add convenient closet racks or look into a DIY project to create some stylish and useful décor. Install a built-in bookshelf or fireplace surround in the living room. Turn a coat closet into a nook by removing the doors and installing a built-in bench, coat hooks, and shelves.
