As we shift into a new season, consider some inexpensive DIY home improvement upgrades to revive your home. Save money and spice up your interior with these budget-friendly ideas for fall:
1. Freshen Up with Paint
A new coat of paint is one of the easiest ways to freshen up a room, and it’s not limited to the walls… The extent of the painting is up to you! Repaint a whole room or add a feature wall. Consider repainting your kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanity. Refurbish old wooden furniture and add a pop of fall colour to dining chairs or your hutch.
2. Revitalize Your Front Door
If it suits your home exterior, consider painting your front door a deep orange or blue to complement nature’s colour palette and accentuate your fall décor. Alternatively, replace your entry door for instant curb appeal. Choose a rich woodgrain and add sidelights for a warm and welcoming first impression.
3. Upgrade Hardware
Swap out hardware around the house for a quick and easy upgrade. Invest in new pulls or handles for kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities. Modernize your home with black or brushed gold accents.
4. Update Faucets
Give your kitchen, laundry and bathroom a facelift with new faucets and tapware. As the weather cools down, treat yourself to a new showerhead in the bathroom or ensuite for a touch of luxury. Create a relaxing and cozy atmosphere with fall-inspired candles, and decorate with a new bath mat and fresh linens.
5. Enhance Ambiance with Light
Add warmth and comfort to your home with fall lighting. Replace harsh bright overhead lighting with soft LED bulbs. Install smart or dimmable lighting to easily adjust the intensity. Add lamps and decorative candles in the same shades as decorative pillows and soft throw rugs. Hang mirrors to reflect light in the living room.
