Budget friendly DIY home improvements


If you’re looking to spruce up your home, you can still get a fresh, new look without emptying your pockets. Here are some easy tips to make your home look different.


The kitchen is a common family area and the most important room in the house. It is most likely where you start your day and what people call the heart of the home. Kitchen renovations can be costly, but if your appliances and countertops are intact, there is no need to replace something that isn’t broken. A simple backsplash can add a delightful presence to the overall look of your kitchen. A tile backslash can get expensive, depending on the amount of space you need to cover, but you can get the same look with adhesive backsplash tiles found at your local Home Depot or Lowes. Other recycled material you can find around the house which make for a good backsplash are mirrors, wood and wallpaper which are resourceful and inexpensive.

A large multi-purpose faucet can also emphasize the look of the kitchen, depending where your sink is placed. Faucets can come in different sizes and different finishes which can be coordinated with your current cabinet or countertop color. You can also change the hardware of your cupboards and drawers to match, it is simple and easy to do, and will add a nice finished touch to your home.
Family Room

The Family room is a cozy, comfortable room to relax, and spend time together. The furniture can start to get tired and bland but there is no need to start buying new sofas and tables. Add a large floor rug, whether it be patterned or neutral, and this will bring out some color and even hide and blemishes you may have on the floor. You can also shop for bold accent pillows which can give the furniture some pop and flavor. Depending on the room and size of the windows, changing the drapes or curtains to a sheer material can allow for some brighter natural light, and also depending on the colour curtains you add, it will also change the overall appearance and ambiance of the room.
