You loved our Simple DIY Ideas to Freshen Up Your Home in the spring, so we’re back in the cooler weather with even more projects that will make a big impact in your home.

We’ll be keeping it simple again, with updates you can make to your home in as little as one day without having to bribe your friends with beer and pizza in order to get them done.

Last time, we talked about other DIY projects like painting the walls, replacing old light fixtures, adding storage spaces, installing a backsplash in the kitchen, updating drawer knobs and cabinet handles, landscaping to boost your curb appeal, and taking nice pictures of your home. What else could we possibly have to add to that list?!

We’re glad you asked. Let’s get started.


Brighten up your kitchen.

White cabinets can make your kitchen feel larger than it really is. It also gives it a clean modern look. If you’re worried about it looking sterile, don’t! Decorating with contrasting hues, like dark grays, dark browns, or black, will give it more depth. Then, add pops of color with greenery and smaller kitchen staples like soap dispensers, dish towels, salt and pepper shakers, and more.

If white cabinets aren’t your style or feel out of reach, adding those pops of color and greenery will still give your kitchen a fresh feel!


Paint your front door.

This can change the entire feel of your home, boost its curb appeal, and help it stand out in the crowd. Some of our top choices for door colors include: turquoise blue, mint green, brick red, and stylish salmon. If bright colors aren’t for you, but you still want to switch it up, try going with a neutral color that contrasts the rest of your home. For example, if your home is a warm neutral color, like tan, try a cool gray color for your door.


Simply redecorate.

This is as DIY as it gets! Add a gallery wall to that plain wall above your couch. Put an area rug in your living room to complement the existing decor. Find a simple tray and add a little plant, small trinkets, and books for a table centerpiece or coffee table focus piece. Get new hand towels and rugs/bathmats for your kitchen and bathrooms. Redecorating doesn’t have to be an overhaul project. A little bit goes a long way!

That’s all for this round of renovating tips that are DIY without breaking the budget.
