One of the unexpected side effects of the pandemic is a boom in home remodeling. Contractors enjoyed a 58% increase in leads. However, not everyone can afford a full professional remodel for their home. 

This doesn’t mean you have to give up on your home improvement dreams. You can renovate and elevate the look and feel of your home by strategically choosing your home improvement projects. 

Try these four ideas for your DIY home renovations on a budget.

  1. Clean

Give your home a fresh feel by removing dirt, debris, mold, and mildew. All you need is a long-handled brush, environmentally safe cleaner, bucket, and a hose. Fill your bucket with soapy water and scrub the outside of your home. 

Start at the top of your home, just below the roof shingles. Work your way down in sections. This will make it easier to clean your home and prevent you from doing double work. 

While you can also use a pressure washer, you’ll want to be very careful. Using too high of pressure can damage your home. 

  1. Add a Backsplash 

Adding or changing your kitchen backsplash is a DIY renovation that is simple but gives the impression of a much larger completed project. You don’t even have to have tiling experience to accomplish this renovation project. 

Peel and stick tiles come in a wide variety of colors, textures, patterns, and sizes. Use tin snips to cut the tiles to size. Then peel off the backing and adhere them to your wall. 

  1. Change the Fixtures 

You can easily and quickly update the look of your kitchen or bathroom by changing out the hardware on your cabinets. You can also change the light and plumbing fixtures for an easy upgrade. 

Both of these projects are doable DIY projects for the average homeowner. Choose hardware and fixtures that match the rest of the architecture and style of the home. This will enhance the room and create a more cohesive look. 

  1. Painting 

Painting is one of the easiest home renovation projects. You can pick out any color you want, purchase your paint at a local home improvement store, and get to work. For the greatest improvement, choose a color scheme that includes three colors. 

One color will be the primary color. Another color will be the secondary color. The third color will be barely used as an accent color. 

If you find that your home needs more than a coat of paint, then you may want to enlist the assistance of professional painters. JE Kogan Painters provides an in-depth service that includes painting plus waterproofing, concrete repairs, stain removal, concrete repair, and graffiti removal. 

Try These DIY Home Renovations

If you own your own home, you don’t need a large budget to perform DIY home renovations. You need a strategic plan that allows you to focus on repairs and upgrades that fit your skill level and budget. 

Start by cleaning and painting. Then change out the hardware, fixtures, and backsplash. These small and affordable changes will transform the visual impact of the home.
