Easy Weekend Home Renovation Projects

If you're looking for simple, affordable ideas to spruce up your home, there's a variety of renovation projects you can get done over the weekend. Sometimes, small changes that don't take much time can have a big impact on visual appeal.

Front Entrance

A cheery splash of color and a few new landscaping plants can do wonders for your home's curb appeal  and make a lasting impression on your guests. Choose a front door color that compliments your home's style and materials. Bright colors like red, yellow, orange and turquoise will draw attention to your entrance and add a touch of updated style. If your hardware is old or tarnished, replace it with new stylish hardware. To create an inviting pathway to the front door, add new landscaping plants or colorful flowers and accent the walkway with pathway lighting to provide foot safety for guests.

Dining Room 

You can quickly dress up an eating area and give the room a fresh, new look with a new light fixture. In the kitchen, you can install stylish pendant lighting over the table or island. In the dining room, you can create a dramatic statement with a beautiful crystal or brass chandelier. When your replacing an electrical fixture in your home, it's essential to turn off the power at the breaker box to prevent electrical shock. If you don't feel safe or comfortable around electricity, hire a home renovation contractor to install your new fixture.


Remodeling your kitchen with new cabinets and appliances can cost you thousands of dollars that you may not have. You can still update the look of your kitchen with simple, affordable design ideas. If new cabinets are not in your budget, new hardware for cabinet door and drawers can create an instant style change for little money. You can give your sink a new look by replacing your old faucet with a stylish new one in a beautiful finish that enhances kitchen materials. For a touch of glamour and added light, install under-cabinet lighting that throws light on kitchen work surfaces.

Patio or Deck

If your patio or deck feels boring and uninviting, spruce it up with new lounge furniture and potted plants. If you already have good outdoor furniture that you don't want to replace, just add new cushions and throw pillows in bright, cheery colors or patterns. Create an interesting border around your patio or deck with potted plants in colorful pots that match your cushions. For a final touch, invest in a new grill  that allows you to cook and entertain outdoors with friends and family.
