Small Projects and Renovations that Transform Your Home from North Carolina Lifestyle Blogger Adventures of Frugal Mom

The lockdowns and stay-at-home lifestyle of 2020 have inspired many professionals to choose a more relaxed and laid-back routine. Consciously opting to work, dine, cook, and entertain at home has led to people making home improvements to transform their spaces. Homes are no longer just a place to crash, shower, and store belongings. It’s where you spend time with family and friends and work hours that suit your mood for maximum productivity. This season, if you’ve been looking for small projects and renovations that can transform your home, we have some great ideas that won’t cost much but add a warm, personal touch to your home.

  1. Paint and Transform a Wall

The simplest DIY project you can take up that livens up a room instantly is paint. Pick a wall in your living or bedroom and paint it in beautiful jewel colors like ruby or sapphire, or saffron, cypress, or teal. You could also consider trying textures, motifs, or shading to convert it into a work of art. Once the paint is dry, you’ll adorn it with a collage of family pictures, mirrors, and original artwork. Commissioning a portrait–much less a cat portrait–may feel extravagant, but it’s a surprisingly affordable way to make your home totally unique.

Small projects and renovations like these are like an instant facelift for your interiors that won’t cost much but will give you a sense of accomplishment. 

  1. Renovate Your Bathroom

If you’re interested in increasing your home’s value but don’t want to tear up every room or the entire yard, start with a bathroom. Relax and rejuvenate at home with a spa where you soak away aches and pains in warm, soapy water scented with aromatic essential oils. You can look into a combination of shower and bathtub replacements made with leak-resistant high-grade acrylic, stone-resin, or cast iron. Replace the faucets if needed and add shelves for placing candles, flowers, potpourri, and a collection of soft towels. 

Keeping accessibility in mind could be very smart for your own needs or the needs of the next owner. Consider a walk-in bathtub with skid-proof floors and a seat that’s perfect for a long soak. 

  1. Build a Home Office

Since you’ll spend more time working from home, one of the small projects and renovations for your home would be to build an office. Start by sectioning off a part of your spare bedroom, living room, or dining area. All you need is a compact desk with adequate space for your computer, keyboard, printer, and any other devices. You’ll also need access to a power outlet and extension cords to plug in the electronics. Set up shelves on the wall behind or place a rack where you can store files and supplies within easy reach. Add an interesting backdrop for Zoom meetings, and you have an ideal workspace that offers flexible work hours and eliminates the time and effort you spend commuting. 

Renovating your home spaces need not be extensive projects. Just a little creativity, imagination, and personal touches can spruce up the place and give new meaning to staying at home.
