13 Feb 3 inexpensive projects that can be completed during any season
When most people think of home remodeling projects, they think of spring projects. During the winter months we are usually spending most of our time indoors when we are at home. What better time to make small, simple renovations to brighten up your home? We have 3 easy and inexpensive weekend projects that you can complete during any season.
#1 Add an accent wall to your family or living room.
An accent wall is a single wall that takes a different style or design from the other walls in each room. Accent walls can change the feel in your home and when done right they looks amazing. This will add character to your room without redoing the whole room. The accent wall does not necessarily need to be a bold color or design. It can be a subtle color variation or even wallpaper. Another option of an accent wall is to add shiplap. Shiplap is a horizontal plank that has two opposing rabbet joins that overlap each other. This allows the pieces to fit together tightly forming a tight seal.
#2 Change accessories in the bathroom
Look at the little details you can update in your bathroom. Light fixtures, faucets, towel racks and drawer pulls can all be updated for a small cost. While these items may seem insignificant, updating them can make a huge difference in your bathroom’s appearance. Updated accessories can give your bathroom a fresh look and change the overall feel of the room. Accessories can play a critical role in the style, mood and feel of your bathroom. Keep in mind the small accessories such as your soap dishes, towel racks and toothbrush holders will set the tone for your other accessories.
#3 Prime and paint your heat registers / covers
You can enhance the appearance of your heat covers/registers by freshening up the paint. Before you start this project make sure you have the appropriate type of paint. Below are 5 steps to follow for this project.
- Allow the cover/ register to cool for 4 hours before removing.
- Remove register
- Clean with water and a degreaser. Make sure you rinse thoroughly and allow them to dry completely.
- Coat with metal primer. Wait 4 hours for it to dry.
- Coat the primed register with high temperature paint. Wait at least 6 hours before replacing the register to ensure your paint is dry.
