Deciding what project to do as a homeowner always seems like it's a pretty big deal. One of the best ways to decide is by looking at what's trending. You can get a lot of inspiration whenever you're checking out other people's work. Here are a few ideas that you can use in your home.
Brackets on the Underside of Your Counters
Place a few brackets on the underside of your kitchen counters. These look like they're supporting the counters, but they're purely decorative.
Try using something that matches the color scheme of your kitchen. You'll probably like how things look better that way. Using a matching color scheme can help you highlight your kitchen's features.
Decorative Art on the Walls of the Living Room
Large, bare walls don't do much for your interior design. You've got to decorate them with something, so they're not too boring. Filling them up with small pieces of art could cost you a fortune if you're buying them individually.
It would be a lot more cost-effective to purchase some large wall art to cover your living room's walls. You wouldn't have to buy nearly as many pieces to cover all the space. As a result, you'd be able to save money while still making your living room look stylish.
Vergeboards Along the Eaves
Vergeboards line the underside of the eaves. They're a type of decorative siding used near the top of your exterior walls. You might not even notice them whenever you're walking into the house. However, if you look closely, they'll make it look amazing.
You don't need a ton of material to complete this on most homes. You've just got to get enough to cover the fascia around the entire house. So, it shouldn't be too expensive if you're trying to get something done on a budget.
Refinish Your Cabinets
You wouldn't believe how much time people spend in their kitchens. But, you'll notice the difference if you upgrade your kitchen cabinets. Even refinishing them would make a huge difference if they've been around a while.
Refinishing them would let you avoid spending a ton of money on replacements. Plus, your old cabinets would look like they were practically brand-new. You could also purchase some stainless steel appliances for the kitchen. They'd be an amazing compliment to your updated cabinets. That would take your kitchen to another level.
Add a Backsplash to the Kitchen
Another easy project you can try in your kitchen would be installing a backsplash above the sink. Usually, you don't have a ton of room in that spot, so it's a small project.
You'll have to start by removing the existing paint or wallpaper. Apply some adhesive above the sink and allow it to set. Then, you can begin decorating the spot by placing tile in a mosaic pattern.
You could also hire someone else to take care of all this for you. It's much less expensive to do it yourself, but it can be time-consuming as well.
Dig a Firepit in the Backyard
Nothing feels better than gathering around a fire in the backyard after getting off of work. It's particularly great when you've got a ton of great company sitting around the fire with you.
You can't make those types of memories without building a fire pit. Most homes don't have them whenever you first move in. You got to build one of them to enjoy their benefits at your home.
Dig a hole about 6 feet into the ground and line it with stones. Create a rim of brick around the lip of the hall. After you've built the pit, you can begin to install seating around it. That's going to make hanging around the fire feel a lot more comfortable after it's all done.
